This is the 1979 Ford Mustang Pace Car Turbocharged Replica, modeled after the official 1979 Indy 500 Mustang Pace Car. This car has been in the family since it was just a few years old as we were the 2nd owner since December of 1983. It still runs and is in drive-home condition, not requiring a trailer to get it to its new home. This has been a wonderful car that has served us well, but it is time for it to find a new owner who can appreciate it for what it is and give it attention. This Mustang was the first year for the Fox body style, and this special car has a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with a 4-speed manual transmission, special turbo hood, front air dam, rear spoiler, back window louvers, body decals, sun roof, special black/white fabric Recaro racing seats with mesh headrests, padded steering wheel, and other features. The body paint is pewter and black with the special decals. It comes with a special waterproof car cover and the original storage upholstery bag for the sun roof that is removable. The rear seat folds down flat since this is a hatchback style. This car does have new shocks on the hatchback door so it will stay up on its own. This car does come with factory air conditioning that would work with being recharged as it has never had any added to it, so it blows but isn't cooling right now (R12). It has the factory cassette stereo with a factory booster.

The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.

Fans of the Ford Mustang SVO, which was produced from 1884 through 1986 with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a manual transmission, may be interested to know that Ford is reportedly going to introduce something similar for 2015. But don't get too excited if you live in the US, as Edmunds reports that the vehicle will be offered in Europe only. Boo!
According to the report, Ford will put a version of its EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder into the engine bay of the Mustang. The engine would be enlarged from its current 2.0 liters to 2.3 liters, taking horsepower from 252 to around 300. The well-known 5.0 V8 engine will also be available in Europe.
"The Mustang is uniquely Ford and has a huge fan base here in Europe. Now those fans have something to look forward to and we look forward to providing more details in the near future," says Ford of Europe CEO Stephen Odell. That's great... but why not offer buyers in the States the (likely) fuel-efficient turbo option, too?
The passing of William Clay Ford has been a big event for the company he spent most of his life helping run. Ford spent 57 years working for his family's company. Considering the Blue Oval has been around for over 100 years, WCF's passing is the end of an era for the Dearborn-based manufacturer.
Ford's YouTube channel has issued a short memorial video highlighting the life of the longest-lived grandson of company founder Henry Ford. It follows William Clay from his time as a boy, showing him alongside his grandfather, through his younger years, and into his twilight, as the patriarch of the Ford family.
Take a look below for this touching memorial video on William Clay Ford.
