Moar Mustang!

We know we’ve posted about four hundred Mustang models recently, but thanks to a recent LEGO Ideas competition they’re popping up all over the place. Plus this one’s yellow and it’s got a supercharger and racing stripes. This modified Mach 1 Mustang comes from TLCB favourite Pixel Junkie and is pictured in his previously featured (and utterly glorious) workshop. Head to Flickr to see more.

Cobra Jet

Lego Ford Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet

Featured here just yesterday with his amazing 2020 Ford Mustang GT500, Firas Abu-Jaber today reminds us that killing yourself and everyone waiting at the bus stop you’ve plowed sideways through has been a Mustang achievement for some time.

This is a Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet, which surely counts amongst the most ridiculously overly-masculine car names in vehicular history. Powered by a 335bhp 7litre V8, but still with shocking steering, brakes and suspension, the Cobra Jet was all about straight-line speed, setting multiple Bonneville speed records in the hands of Mickey Thompson in 1969.

This gloriously orange homage to Ford’s mighty late-’60s muscle car looks every bit as good as the real thing, but is considerably less dangerous, with a top speed of whatever you can push it to. The handling and brakes are probably on par with the actual car though.

Built by Firas Abu-Jaber alongside his previously-featured 2020 GT500, there’s much more to see of this stunningly presented creation at his Ford Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet Flickr album, and if you’d like to get your hands on your very own classic Mustang you can read our preview of LEGO’s own superb-looking 10265 Creator Ford Mustang set by clicking here.

Yellow Yuk

Lego Ford Mustang Mach 1

We hate this generation of Ford Mustang. Gone was the pretty, relatively compact first generation, and in its place we got a fat, poor handling, thirsty monstrosity. The original ’60s car didn’t exactly handle well, and it was also a bit juicy, but all could be forgiven for the way it looked. Not so by the ’70s. Still, at least this one is yellow. Suggested by a reader it’s been built by Flickr’s Ben, and it’s a lovely 6-wide recreation of the start of the American auto industry’s descent into the gutter. See more via the link above.
