Few, if any, cars have as a loyal a fan base as the Ford Mustang. Many automotive experts liken the fans of Mustangs to a cult because of their unbridled passion for the muscle car. Each new version of the Mustang sends fans of the car into overdrive; scoping out the specs, analyzing the strength of the engine, and fussing over new features. Of course, the only thing Mustang fans love more than a new version of the car are the vintage Mustangs from the 1960s and 70s. Endless debates rage about which is the best Mustang of all time. Is it the King Cobra? The Boss 429? The Mach 1? We here at Goliath, of course, have our own opinions and offer the following list of the 10 best Mustangs of all time.
10. 2008 Mustang Bullitt
The 2008 Mustang unleashed by Ford was meant as a tribute to the classic 1968 movie Bullitt on its 40th anniversary. In the movie, actor Steve McQueen drives a Ford Mustang GT Fastback in what is arguably the best car chase in cinematic history. Ford sought to honor the movie and its legacy in 2008 by issuing a signature Mustang, complete with the same dark green paint and black wheels as the one featured in the movie. The gas cover on the 2008 Mustang is even inscribed with the word “Bullitt” on it. The retro styling of the 2008 edition, as well as a powerful V8 engine and oversized wheels make this car a true collector’s item and a worthy edition to the Mustang canon. Steve McQueen himself would have been proud to get behind the wheel of this car.
