What are the Best Mustangs of All Time?

The Ford Mustang is an all-American classic that has been in production since the mid-sixties. Both car enthusiasts and your average driver will agree that the respect that the Mustang's name brings is unlike any other vehicle, which has been built for over the past 5 decades. 

 At Roger Shiflett Ford, we love taking a look back at the best mustangs of all time -- from vehicles that have been built in 60's to present day Mustangs. Take a look at some of our favorites below.

 

1984 Ford Mustang SVO

Although many people feel that the Mustangs, and other cars in general, did not have the same level of muscle and style in the 80's that cars in the 70's did, most will agree that the 1984 Mustang makes up for that in innovation, specifically under the hood. 

 What makes the 1984 Ford Mustang so special is the forced induction engine, which was considered cutting edge back in the 80's and lighter than previous models, creating a more efficient, and better handling car overall.

1978 King Cobra

The Ford Mustang King Cobra was (and still is) a true car enthusiasts dream car. A T-top roof and Cobra decal made this mustang special and different from the others, and was topped off with a powerful V8 engine, so many prefer the power and roar this engine gives over the above '84 V6.

1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 King of the Road

The Ford Mustang GT350 offered incredible power and performance thanks to its 289 cubic inch V8 engine. If that was not enough power, the Ford Mustang GT500 was a step above, and at the highest point was the Ford Mustang GT500 "King of the Road". This Mustang came with a jaw dropping high performance 428 Cobra Jet V8 engine. 

 In 2008, Ford ended up bringing back this Mustang as a tribute with a 500 horsepower 5.4 liter supercharged V8 engine! For those who seek even more power, the 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 brought in a whopping 662 horsepower though its 5.8 liter supercharged V8 engine. No matter how much power you were looking for, the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 had a level that would satisfy your power needs.

2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

Agreed by Mustang lovers all over the world, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is the ultimate Mustang, and tops out our list as the best Mustang yet. Equipped with a high performance chassis/suspension, an ultrahigh performance V8 engine, and ties to the classic Mustang name, the 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 does not disappoint in any aspect. This car is truly ready for the racetrack, in fact, Car and Driver claims this car to be the best performance car that you can buy for the price.
