Did you know that the 2003-2004 Mustang Cobra, commonly referred to as the “Terminator” was a model name that Ford almost used in production (and which was undoubtedly drawn from the Terminator action films)? How about the fact that Bruce Jenner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone were involved in designing the ’94 Mustang? Who would know that the 1963 ½ Galaxie lightweight program was a super-aggressive effort that slashed race weight from 4,150 to 3,480 pounds? Steve Magnante’s 1001 Muscle Car Facts can fill you in on all you ever needed to know about Ford trivia (and quite a few facts on Brand X as well).
The second chapter is completely dedicated to Ford and Mercury vehicles, divided into five subheadings: Legend and Lore, Body and Interior, Engine and Driveline, Suspension and Brakes, and Number Crunching/Press Commentary. This organization of facts makes it much easier for the reader to find what they’re looking for – which is especially helpful when you’re trying to win a bet or prove a point.
Once you’re done reading the 200 Ford facts, you could always skim through the rest of the book to educate yourself with facts to school your GM and Mopar buddies.
