IF you’re looking to invest in American muscle, the Ford Mustang in particular, look no further than County Ford.

Previously Mustangs were never sold from a dealer retail perspective in South Africa, because it was left-hand drive and the Americans were not available to produce a right- hand drive derivative.

When the Mustang moved into Europe, the right-hand drive had to come into the picture and many left-hand drives were converted by specialists.

“This opened the door for these beauties to be sold in South Africa,” said Eddie Ringo, County Ford Port Shepstone general sales manager.

Ringo explains that the Ford Mustang is the icon car when it comes to American muscle.

“Yes, other significant sports cars turn heads, but the Mustang has a much stronger road presence. It’s difficult to explain, but there is just something about this car,” he said.

So what will this mean machine cost? The starting price is R713 000, and availability is limited. Visit County Ford Port Shepstone to see for yourself, or for more information about the vehicle.
