German Owner Tells the Story of Her 1965 Ford T5 Mustang

If you’ve been following our site, you may have read a story about how Ford was forced due to trademark issues to change the name of all Mustangs sold in Germany between 1964 and 1979 to a less-spectacular T5.

While the new name was dull, the car still featured the Mustang badge on the front grille and looked exactly like U.S. Mustangs. Few of these cars survive to this day, especially from the first series of models introduced in 1964.

However, Ford Germany tracked down one of these early Ford T5s and found out the owner of the car bought it new and maintains it in perfect condition. The video is about Käthe Lowe and her prize-winning T5 that is 100 percent in original condition and looks as if it left the assembly line yesterday.

Needless to say, after 48 years, the T5 has become a member of the family and Mrs. Lowe says it’s still her dream car. You can watch the beautiful story in the video posted below.
