What Is the Sprint Edition Mustang?Last Updated October 9, 2020
The Sprint Edition Mustang was targeted towards female car buyers to help boost six-cylinder sales in the late 1960s. This edition Mustang was available in coupe, convertible and fastback with the option to select manual or automatic transmission.
A single 1965 Mustang station wagon was produced as a prototype. Though the design was never picked up for mass-production, it definitely has inspired more than a few station wagons since then.
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.
The first Mustang Cobra Jet was produced in 1968. Though Ford only reported 335 horsepower, actual estimates are much higher. The 1968 Cobra jet was an NHRA champion. Since then, Ford has honored this bit of Mustang history with special limited edition Cobra Jets. The first run was produced in 2008, to celebrate the car's 40th anniversary. In 2018, a second run was produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary.
