201605_0464 Liempde - Ford Mustang 1965 - Oldtimer Day HDR

The Ford Mustang is an American automobile manufactured by Ford. It was originally based on the platform of the second generation North American Ford Falcon, a compact car. The original 1962 Ford Mustang I two-seater concept car had evolved into the 1963 Mustang II four-seater concept car which Ford used to pretest how the public would take interest in the first production Mustang. The 1963 Mustang II concept car was designed with a variation of the production model’s front and rear ends with a roof that was 2.7 inches shorter. Introduced early on April 17, 1964, and thus dubbed as a "1964½" by Mustang fans, the 1965 Mustang was the automaker’s most successful launch since the Model A. The Mustang has undergone several transformations to its current sixth generation.

The Mustang created the "pony car" class of American automobiles—sports-car like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks—and gave rise to competitors such as the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird, AMC Javelin, Chrysler’s revamped Plymouth Barracuda, and the first generation Dodge Challenger. The Mustang is also credited for inspiring the designs of coupés such as the Toyota Celica and Ford Capri, which were imported to the United States.

The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The early production versions are often referred to as "1964½ models" but all Mustangs were advertised, VIN coded and titled by Ford as 1965 models, though minor design updates for fall 1965 contribute to tracking 1964½ production data separately from 1965 data (see data below). with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964; the new car was introduced to the public on April 17, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair.

Executive stylist John Najjar, who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane, is credited by Ford to have suggested the name. Najjar co-designed the first prototype of the Ford Mustang known as Ford Mustang I in 1961, working jointly with fellow Ford stylist Philip T. Clark. The Mustang I made its formal debut at the United States Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, New York on October 7, 1962, where test driver and contemporary Formula One race driver Dan Gurney lapped the track in a demonstration using the second "race" prototype. His lap times were only slightly off the pace of the F1 race cars.

An alternative view was that Robert J. Eggert, Ford Division market research manager, first suggested the Mustang name. Eggert, a breeder of quarterhorses, received a birthday present from his wife of the book, The Mustangs by J. Frank Dobie in 1960. Later, the book’s title gave him the idea of adding the "Mustang" name for Ford’s new concept car. The designer preferred Cougar (early styling bucks can be seen wearing a Cougar grille emblem) or Torino (an advertising campaign using the Torino name was actually prepared), while Henry Ford II wanted T-bird II. As the person responsible for Ford’s research on potential names, Eggert …

Citroën 11CV Traction Avant 11BL 1953 (8559)

Citroën 11CV Traction Avant 11BL 1953 (8559)

Manufacturer: Citroën S.A., Groupe PSA Peugeot Citroën, Saint-Ouen – France
Type: 11CV Traction Avant
Engine: 1911cc straight-4
Power: 56 bhp / 3.800 rpm
Speed: 118 km/h
Production time: 1939 – 1957
Production time: 1934 – 1957 (all TA’s)
Production outlet: 248,597
Production outlet: 759,111 (all TA’s)
Curb weight: 1100 kg

Special:
– The Traction Avant is designed by André Lefèbvre (spiritual father) and Flaminio Bertoni (final design) and was the first mass produced front drive and fully welded unibody construction car in the world.
– The original plan was to built the TA with an automatic gearbox. The first generation automatic gearboxes had "big troubles" and was nicknamed "Friteuse" (‘Fryer’), because it boiled constantly the oil in it.
– The engineers cobbled together (emergency measure and redesigned within three weeks!) a manual three-speed gearbox (column/dash shift), hardly fitted in the original housing of the automatic transmission. It remained the TA’s weak spot.
– It also has independently suspended front wheels and suspension by torsion bars, hydraulic brakes (Lockheed system) and from 1936 rack and pinion steering.
– The engines were equipped with overhead valves, very progressive for its time, with wet, replaceable cylinder bushes.
– Although the ingenious structure dating from 1934, it remained in production until 1957. And not because there was no successor (DS 1955), but simply because there were still too many "supporters" of this vehicle.
– It could be delivered as "7CV’, 11BL "Légère" (as Sedan, Cabrio and Faux-Cabrio), 11BN "Normale" ((as Sedan, Cabrio en Faux-Cabrio), 11BC "Commerciale" (with large tailgate), 11BF "Familiale" (with six side windows and folding chairs ("strapontins"), "Limousine" (without folding chairs), 15/6F, 15/6C (6 cylinder luxury versions) with a trunk or a spare wheel at the back.
– The 7-series is produced until 1939.
– Coupes and Convertibles were only built before WWII.
– During the 23 years of production, the war years included, only a few notable changes to the Traction Avant were applied. The most conspicuous is the modification of July 1952, when the spare wheel disappeared under the trunk instead of the familiar ‘wheel’ back.
– On that occasion the windscreen wipers moved to the bottom of the windshield and bumpers became the straihgt rather than the graceful "mustaches" ​​of yesteryear.
– Technically only small modifications were made, but never drastic, for instance compression ratio of the engine by improving petrol.
– To the urgent call of many customers to a more robust gearbox with four clutches, to a less susceptible driveshafts and a more robust and less complicated front suspension was never given a call by Citroën. They were interested in improving the TA. Only in developing their models of the future: the 2CV (1948) and the DS (1955).
– The Traction Avants were produced in Paris (France), in Cologne (Germany), Copenhagen (Denmark), in Vorst (Belgium) and in Slough (United Kingdom, right-hand drive).
– Some prototypes with 22CV (100 bhp) V8 engines were exhibited at the Paris Motor Show in October 1934. Citroën had a dozen of these …

Special:
– The looks were up to date (modern and aerodynamic ), but technically ahead of its time, this Dyna, codenamed “Projekt AF-G (Aluminium Français – Grégoire), designed by engineer Jean-Albert Grégoire, was at first shown (the Panhard X 84) at the 1946 Paris Motor Show.
– The name "Dyna" was selected, a reference to the Panhard Dynamic before the war.
– Increasingly baroque body decoration led to the range being nicknamed "Louis XV".
– Panhard supplier Facel-Métallon, Paris developed a new process to manufacturer its all steel tubular frame chassis and the all aluminum body in pressed sheets.
– Until Ferrari came along with the Ferrari 360 (1999), it was the only production car to feature an all-aluminum chassis.
– The wheels have no hub. They are assembled by "ears" on the aluminum brake drums.
– The Dyna Series were available as this 4-door Berline, as 3-door Commerciale (with fixed side windows), as 3-door Break (with large sliding windows and a rear seat), as 2 -door Découvrable (Convertible), as 2-door Roadster (Dyna X Junior), as Fourgonette (a closed light Van), as 5-door Limousine, as 5-door Taxi and a rare 3-door Canadienne (a closed “Woody Van” (only 1949) and only 25 units built).
– A very special Dyna is Dynavia, a teardrop shape show/ studie model to study the possibilities of streamlining. Only 2 uinits built and only 1 still excists today.
– Citroën had a minority of 25% interest in Panhard since 1955 and took over the P&L Company in 1965 and let the car brand name "vanish" in 1967.
