What’s more fun than hanging out at the beach and getting sand in places nature never intended? Watching classic movies that feature the Ford Mustang!
In just 50 years time, Ford estimates that more than 500 movies and hundreds of television programs have included a Ford Mustang since the car first appeared in April of 1964. “Mustang has had the most roles of any Ford vehicle, and there are no competing cars that come close,” said Bob Witter, of Ford Global Brand Entertainment (FGBE), the Ford office in Beverly Hills that works to “cast” Ford-branded vehicles in movies, television and other entertainment media. “From a product placement perspective, Mustang is the gift that keeps giving and giving.”
As the benchmark of American muscle car culture, the Ford Mustang’s sporty exteriors and powerful engines have been the top choice by movie producers and directors in numerous films and television programs.
Actors such as Steve McQueen, Will Smith, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Costner, Anne Hathaway, Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood and Nicolas Cage have all saddled up to a Ford Mustang on film. Many of these actors liked the car so much that, when filming was over, they opted to include a Ford Mustang in their garage at home.
