ANGELES -- Here it is!! The 2013
Ford Mustang is finally out there for all to see. Revealed live
and in person at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on November
15th, the eve before the L.A. Auto Show. Ford has treated the
faithful to a special unveiling. A limited number of tickets was
offered to Mustang Club of America members first, then to the
stage was a 2013 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca in School Bus Yellow,
a V6 in a stunning shade of Deep Impact Blue, a Mustang GT Convertible
in Sterling Grey and the GT500 in Grabber Blue – these are
the same cars seen in the Ford press release photos.

GT's will have the option of some SYNC tech and … wait for
it … Recaro seats available on the 301A interior base model
seats will be an option for Mustang GT's as well as Torsen Diff,
like on the Boss 302's. Sounds like Ford is throwing everything

be just what the Mustang needs.

only, for fleet fuel mileage reasons. Dealers will no longer be
able to order 3.55 or 3.73 equipped cars for dealer stock.
The Bravery performed for the small crowd in the beautiful Belasco
Theater. But they were not the only celebrities on hand. Carroll
Shelby and his wife Chleo were there to introduce the GT500, which
Mr. Shelby pronounced the ultimate Mustang Ford has built. Jim
Farley introduced the show and on hand were the design and engineering
team for the Mustang, including Mustang Chief Engineer Dave Pericak
and SVT Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi.
