What Is the Shelby Europa?Last Updated February 5, 2020 | C.J. Tragakis
Due to high tax rates and fuel prices throughout Europe, only nine Shelby Europas were ever produced to send overseas, making them exceedingly rare. Available with either a 351CID Windsor or 428 CID Cobra Jet engine, these Mach 1-based cars featured upgraded racing suspension, front and rear spoilers, and special striping with a unique Shelby Europa logo.
The special edition 7-Up Mustang was an unofficial commemoration of the Ford Mustang's 25th Anniversary. Originally produced to be given away at the 1990 NCAA finals, these special edition Mustangs were fast and stylish. The 7-Up Mustangs were unique with a Deep Emerald Green paint and white leather interior.
The Cobra II Mustang package was introduced in 1975 as a response to the end of the oil crisis and an attempt by Ford to have a true contender to the muscle car throne. The Cobra II package was available on the 4-cyl, V6, and V8 fastback models.
The Mustang Ghia was Ford's attempt at creating a luxury Mustang during the 1973 gas crisis and available as a luxury package option on the second-generation Mustangs. While the Mustang Ghia saw a limited run in the USA, Ford offered the Ghia trim in Europe on most popular models until 2010.
With only five examples estimated to have survived to today, the 1966 Gold Edition is one of the rarest editions ever released. Distinguished only by cosmetic changes, such as a unique Anniversary Edition Gold paint job and an upgraded interior, the Gold Edition was often promoted by giveaways and contests.
