Prices for all-new Mustang revealed for Kiwi buyers

5 March, 2015

For the first time in its half-century existence, the 2015 Ford Mustang is finally being sold in New Zealand through Ford dealers — and Ford’s global platform means right-hand drive!

Ford have announced the retail price for these new additions to their line-up, and they’re pretty sharp. Prices start at $56,990 for a fastback, equipped with 2.3-litre EcoBoost and automatic transmission. Top of the line is the V8 GT convertible, equipped with six-speed automatic, retailing for $76,990. The popular manual V8 GT is only available as a fastback, and wears a retail price of $71,990.

Though an official release date is yet to be announced, Ford New Zealand’s website says the 2015 Mustang is “coming soon” — exciting news!

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
