In the 60s, the original Ford Mustang was available in three different body styles: coupe; convertible and fastback. The fastback body style featured a sloping rear end, unlike the coupe, with its near vertical rear window. Fastback Mustangs were popular, and Ford used the body style for the Boss, Mach 1 and Shelby editions of the Mustang. The fastback was last available in 1993, the last year of the fox-body Mustangs.
The New Edge Mustang, which was first available in the 2005 model year, picked up the styling of the original 1964½ – 1973 Mustangs, with the exception of the fastback body style.
Now hardcore Mustang fans can finally buy a fastback New Edge Mustang, in the form of the 2009½ Iacocca Anniversary Edition Mustang.
Built to honor automotive legend Lee Iacocca and the 45th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, the Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang will come decked out in Ford Racing parts, including an optional supercharger. The fastback Mustangs will only be available in silver, and will feature 20-inch aluminum wheels along with a customized interior and exterior.
Only 45 of the special edition fastback Mustangs will be available. The cost will be about $60,000, according to Jalopnik. That price might seem high, but keep in mind this is an ultra-low production model with some intense customization done to it, so the value is sure to skyrocket in a few years.
