T-5 the german Mustang

this is my first under glass post the pictures are from my first ever competition where i won my first ever blue ribbon ENJOY

Is it a Mustang?
The answer is no!

In 1965 Ford decided to send the Mustang overseas to Germany. The problem? The name Mustang was already in use by a motorcycle company and a truck company in Germany, so Ford would have had to pay a $10,000 fee for the right to use the Mustang name in Germany. So instead of paying $10,000 Ford decided to designate all German export Mustangs as T-5’s (that had been the project code at Ford). All 65’-78’ Mustangs exported to Germany were designated as T-5’s. The Mustang name does not appear anywhere on the vehicle. The T-5 was not only different in name but in equipment too, due to them having to fit German motor vehicle regulations. There had to be an anti-theft locking device on the steering column, sealed beam headlights (common in North America) were not legal in Germany, parking lamps and turn signals had to be different, high beam indicators had to be blue not red, and the taillights were modified to German motor vehicle regulations. Some T-5’s got metric speedometers. Many T-5’s that returned to America with military personnel were converted to miles-per-hour. Not all T-5’s got these modifications. Ford built thousands of T-5’s for German export not all of them returned.

The T-5 I have built has a 289 and Ford 9-inch. It’s raven black with red deluxe interior. It has black steel wheels and red line tires. I hope that all shall enjoy its beauty and history.

Thank you for looking, I hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you to Tim Ridout for giving me the link to Model Car Magazines website. Thank you Gary in Texas for sending the redlines. And last but not least thank you Mustang Monthly Magazine for giving me the information.
