Famous Ford Cars Throughout the Years

You don’t become as revered and long-lasting as Ford without creating a few icons over the years. As one of the oldest automakers in the industry, Ford has created legendary models, some of which are still around today. We at L&L Motors know of a few famous Ford cars that have been brand milestones throughout the years.

Ford Model T

With a production run exceeding 16.5 million, the Ford Model T revolutionized the early automotive industry. Powered by a four-cylinder engine, the Model T was produced for two decades and effectively jumpstarted America’s interest in vehicles. In all of the brand’s century-plus history, no model has been as influential as the Ford Model T.

Ford GT

You can’t make a list of famous Ford cars without including the Ford GT, the astounding supercar that turned heads and broke records. The streel-legal performance car arrived in 2004 with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 550 hp. Unfortunately, it left the market in 2006. A decade later, the model made its triumphant return and is still in production today.

Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang was introduced in the mid-1960s and kicked off a craze for an entire generation. The American muscle car brought superior performance to the industry, and its sleek styling certainly didn’t hurt. Today, the Ford Mustang is still going strong with plenty of trim levels and powertrains to choose from.

2017 Ford GT Undergoing Road Tests

Spotting prototypes is like bird watching to auto enthusiasts, especially those with a need for speed. The latest sighting puts a 2017 Ford GT undergoing road tests for the first time. Considering spotting any form of a Ford GT, old or new, is a rarity, it’s no surprise the latest Ford GT spotting made headlines.

While the spotting doesn’t tell us much, it looks like the GT rides just as low as it looks in the pictures Ford has previously released. On top of that, it’s a little easier to judge just how long, wide, and high the car is based on other vehicles around it.

Ford began taking applications – yes, applications – from potential buyers not long ago in an effort to weed out those who are looking to resell the car. Questions included how active the applicant is on social media, how many Fords they’ve owned, and how often they’d drive the 2017 Ford GT.

Even if someone looking to make a profit does have their application accepted, Ford is also including a legal document that states the owner can’t sell the car for a specific amount of time.

The 2017 Ford GT will feature a gorilla glass windshield, a first in the industry. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine that bursts onto the road with over 600 hp thanks to its carbon fiber construction.
