Legendary British secret agent James Bond encountered Ford Mustangs several times in his career. The first time 007 saw the Ford Mustang was in the movie “Goldfinger” when his Aston Martin DB5 raced a 1964 Mustang convertible in the Swiss mountains. The chase scene proved to be very popular, and the movie world was introduced to the magic of the Mustang (via James Bond Lifestyle).
“Goldfinger” is the second movie in history to feature the all-new Mustang. In 1964 and 1965, the Mustang was the only American car, except the Corvette, which had a sporty appeal but compact dimensions, ideal for European buyers. And, of course, powerful V8 engines and exciting performance.
