    2011 Mustang Job 1

    I was just looking throught the Fleet distribution news bulletin and it lists Mustangs as last day to order (for fleet) as 12/8/09. It lists order bank open on 2011's on 1/18/10 and job 1 for 2011 as 3/15/10. I didn't realize the 11's would be this early.

    Still not much showing in the order computer. Only thing listed so far is Shelby Convertible. Still shows 5.4L SC 4V V8 so same engine (but could get the rumored alluminum block). They do show a SVT Performance package (option 67F). Inlcudes 19" wheels,RR Spoiler with GF (Gurney Flap I'm assuming), OTT Stripe delete and last but most importantly 3.73 Limited slip axle!

    GT's aren't working, but I've been trying to trick it into giving me some info. Only things I've found were:
    Option 55D Brembo Brake pkg
    443 6 Speed auto trans
    3 different 19" tires listed (1 245/45R19, 2 255/40R19, I assume one will be a summer only compound).
    402A Package looks to be return of California Special


    Thats about all I can find right now. Looks like we'll all get the info soon if order bank opens Jan 18th, order guides should be available then!

    Very nice. Keep playing with that computer and see what else you can find out.

    I want the spoiler delete available on all Mustangs (Camaros, too, PLEASE!!!!). As far as early in the year release, remember what they did originally. The Mustang came out as a "1965" model months ahead of the Barracuda which was called rightly a 1964.

    Actually, the Barracuda was released two weeks before the Mustang...

    Thnx for the correction but maybe I am relying on a fading memory that says the Plymouth dealers had basically no Cudas while the Ford dealers had a bunch of Mustangs early.

    Were you really around back then? That's neat.

    I like talking to my dad about him getting all excited about new vehicle introductions in the 1950s and 1960s. He remembers how exciting the 1957 Plymouth introduction was. He said a commercial would come on TV and a car would fly by the camera so fast you couldn't see what it was, and then it said "SUDDENLY! IT'S 1960!" Seeing that he was about 5 at the time and still remembers it, it shows how big of a deal new cars debuts were back then.

    Nice to see the 6 speed confirmed. I'm still drooling at the prospect of the 5.0 Coyote.

    I believe Ford is supposed to make the formal announcement at the LA Auto Show.

    Here are my predictions:

    5.0L DOHC "Coyote" V8: 405 hp/380 lb./ft.
    3.7L DI V6: 315 hp/285 lb./ft.

    6-speed Automatic, 6-speed manual available for both engines

    Apparently got Fords attention as well since the Shelby won't come up in the ordering computer anymore. Still can get minor details like I could on the GT, but before I could actually order the Shelby, now its "not available for processing"
