The Ford Mustang is one of the most recognizable cars ever built. Ever since it’s release in March of 1964, it has captured the imagination, and eyes, of millions of car lovers.

So it’s only natural that a car that has been so widely praised, has made its way onto TV, and movie screens for all of us to enjoy.

You may have your own favourite, or your favourite may be on our list below.

One thing that can’t be denied: the Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic vehicles ever built!

5. 2008 Shelby GT500KR

This Shelby Mustang appeared in the 2008 re-make of “Knight Rider”. Not only is it a departure from the original series who used a 1982 Pontiac Firebird, it has some modern day extras to make “Kit” a little extra bad-ass, like state of the art AI, and an EMP pulse weapon!


4. 1977 Cobra II

The Cobra II made an appearance in Starman with Jeff Bridges. Although some did not really appreciate some of the sylistic touches of the vented corner windows, and big protruding bumper, keep in mind that Starman came out in 1984. Some cars never go out of style though, and we include the Cobra II in that group.

3. 2008 Mustang GT “Frankenstein’s Monster”

I mean…c’mon. I know you would never drive this car, but who among us hasn’t wanted to have dual mounted machine guns on their hood? this beauty appeared in the 2008 Jason Statham action driver “Death Race” and was one of the Death Race cars that Statham’s character had to battle. I dare you to cut this one off in traffic.

2. 1968 GT390 Fastback

The. Bullit. car. You may have thought this one would top out at #1, as it does in most lists, however giving it the number 2 spot here was on purpose. This Mustang was made popular in the 1968 movie “Bullit” starring Steve McQueen, and has forever been the Mustang of Mustangs. However, with it’s green simplicity, yet generous power, it holds a special place in our hearts, and on the streets of San Francisco. It may be always on the top of the list for all-time cars, but if you have ever seen the movie, its really hard to beat that car chase scene.

1. 1967 Shelby GT500 “Eleanor”

My goodness. If there is a more bad-ass, sexy car built, you are probably lying. this 1967 modified classic appeared in the 2000 Nick Cage car salute that was “Gone in 60 Seconds” You can argue that the “Bullit” Mustang is better, but there will never be a Mustang built like “Eleanor” ever again.
