Here’s a little back story on the six new Classic Badges that were recently introduced, starting with Henry Ford’s famous #999 race car.


Henry’s #999 Race Car

In 1902, Henry Ford built his first race car and broke the land speed record at 91.4 mph on Lake St. Clair in 1904. This car predates the establishment of Ford Motor Company, and is widely believed to have given Ford the notoriety and funding to create the company we all love.


1908 Model T

The Model T gave the world an affordable automobile at a time when other cars were merely expensive luxury items, and most people still used horses for transportation. Fifteen million Model T vehicles were sold, and with it Ford created the modern assembly line concept that revolutionized mass manufacturing around the world.


1948 F-1 Pickup

The Ford F-150 has been the top-selling American vehicle for 30 years, and it has roots that started with the F-1 in 1948. With 148 horsepower, it was one of the biggest and most modern trucks of its time.

1955 Thunderbird

Still considered by enthusiasts as one of the most beautiful cars ever built, the original Thunderbird was a two-seater personal luxury car that created a market niche for itself.


1964 ½ Mustang

When the Mustang was debuted at the New York World’s Fair in April 1964, demand went through the roof for the sexy new compact car, creating the “pony car” segment. Its first-year sales numbers were an enormous 417,000, with people lining up at dealership doors as soon as they saw it on the cover of both Time and Newsweek magazines.


1966 Bronco

All of today’s Ford SUVs can draw their lineage to the original Bronco. This was the first Ford mid-size SUV that was unlike any other Ford vehicle of its time. It has been a favorite among off-road enthusiasts since it was introduced.

I would love to see Ford bring back the Model-T. It would be so cool to see it re-created for today's buyer. Keep true to it's original look but make it work for today's roads. I love, love, love Ford and would love to see what a stunt like this could do for it's PR.

The Australian 1971 Falcon XY GTHO Phase 3. The fastest 4 door production car in the world at the time. its also the most legendary and desirable muscle car in land down under!

What about the 8N Ford Tractor it was built in 1947 and is still around to day and working in the field of America and around the world. (You can not Kill a 8N or 9N Ford tractor. 02/19/2013
Where is the Lincoln Town Car. One of the best ever
Bernie from down under 01/28/2013
The Aussie Ford Falcon FG , is the best Ford in the world .
Come on Ford US , let Ford Aust send them to the states ,I have had a number of America's over on business which say we would love the Falcon in the states and have offered to buy my FG XR6 turbo off me with its 270 kw and 533 NM of torque , 4 doors , seats 5 easly and rear wheel drive , I have been told that a number of there friends would be lining up to purchase a Falcon , as they say we haven't any thing like
it is the states and you can get a 4 cy ,6 cy , 6 cy turbo or a 5.0 ltr supercharged V8

Any of these choices good - but my favorite - the late model Ford GT not on the list. Three minor mods 700+ hp at the wheel. Still with the mods 21 - 25 mpg hwy full AC.
Down sides entry egress with the doors - today cost of replacement parts. $16000 for a replacement transmission with a core - not to mention trim parts even a windshield if you can find them very expensive. Not to mention tires.
Point is a FORD and TRUE SUPER CAR at 1/3rd or less price of its comparables . Not sure what a next gen would like as the styling is timeless and goes back to racing Jaguars of 1955 not to mention the GT40s of the mid 60s. The 2014 Corvette is just getting there.
Point is it was ICON for Ford seven years ago that will live on and forever be a classic.
Never had a T but did a A.
We have had a 55 T -Bird in the family for 43 years it makes magic Y block sounds with the top off - rust free
but is going to get a proper resto in golden rod yellow.
My parents had an very early 64 1/2th 260 convertable
and several Mustangs / Cougars in later years as did I.
Mind blowing that you could take a Ford Falcon plat form and turn it with a minimal budget to what has evolved to an industry segment in it self but created others around it

hey Henry. Go to Australia. they have the 2013 Falcon truck there
Larry Perio 12/13/2012
What about the 32 ford or the 1940 ford
Henry Willey 11/28/2012
Bring Back the Thunderbird and the Falcon. The maverick is legit too! I love all those styles. True beauty with a little ummph!
Alan 11/24/2012
Ford Capri special edition 280 awesome coupe
cade p 10/29/2012
where's the f-100 badge f-100 was the best of all f-series they should make a mid-sized pickup and call it a f-100 that would be awsome! I own a 1968 Ford f-100 3-on-the-tree its an awsome truck f-100!

Travis S - hate to spoil your party but most of the GT40's was designed and built by Lola Cars in the UK - only the Mk IV version which won Le Mans in 1967 was built in the US.

Aside from this, there are other great Non-US Ford vehicles missing from this line-up, such as:

Ford Transit
Ford Cortina Lotus
Ford Escort RS2000
Ford RS200
Ford Sierra XR8
Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500
Ford Escort Cosworth
Ford Falcon XR8

Come on Ford - you talk about being a global brand, yet only concentrate your social media on 1 continent out of 6 and you wonder why sales are falling outside of the US? It's appalling!!!
Paul D 10/10/2012
How can we forget about the 1969 boss mustang? The best of the best if you ask me!
Gary C 10/09/2012
1940 Deluxe Sedan with the 85 hp flathead V8
Lee 10/04/2012
Where is the 1956 Lincoln?
Where are the flying cars???
Bill K 09/06/2012
How about the 1967 T-Bird? Suicide doors, tilt wheel, hide away headlights, sequencial turn signals, power everything. That car was way ahead of it's time.
GEORGE W 09/04/2012
1970 mach 1 mustang gold with black stripe
Travis S 09/02/2012
The list is missing the best. The original Ford GT40 MkII. Let's face it, after it mopped the floor at LeMans the europeans changes the rules so it couldn't play in their sandbox anymore. The one and only true american supercar.
Ken L 09/02/2012
one of my favorite cars is the 1955 thunder bird.i sure wish the people from ford would consider redoing it like they redid the challenger
Robert Milton 09/01/2012
My two favorites the 65 T-Bird and the 69 Ford Maverick and of course the 81 town car with over 200,000 and with throttle body injection at 55 mph 29 mph too many wonderful cars so short a time want a new Fusion', Taurus, Mustang so hard to pick!
sal 08/30/2012
the best ford is missing from your list the 1932 3 window coupe. It was so ahead of its time that it's still being made into hot rods
Paul Shields 08/30/2012
One of my favorite Fords was the 1972 1/2 ton pickup I bought very used. It had a straight 6 cyl with a 3 speed on the column. She was fun to drive, very easy on fuel and hauled anything I ever asked her to. I drove it for several years and sold it for the same price I paid for it. Wish I still had her.
