Bolder front and rear fascias add even more visual kick for 2013, while an optional V6 Performance Package lets you take full advantage of the 305 spirited horses underhood.”

While not the most popular of all the ‘Stangs; 40 years later, Ford is celebrating the ’70s version of this American Icon.  The 1974 design was a drastic change from the previous models. It was smaller, economic and a complete deviation from its well-known, hotrod roots.
