COLOGNE, Germany - A video of the Ford T5 is now available. In addition to the usual changes, like new headlights to meet local regulations, Ford Mustangs destined for the German market between 1964 and 1979 also got one more change – they were rebadged as Ford T5.
The removal of the Mustang branding came because German truck manufacturer Krupp owned the Mustang trademark in Germany and sold trucks with that branding for many years. For that reason, Ford opted to re-badge the pony car as T5, which had been used as the internal project code during development of Mustang. Full story on Online of October 18.
