So I'm still a little confused on the appearance package after watching the video. Does anyone know, can you get the Jet fighter grey color combo with orange stripping and brembos in a non-handling package Mach 1?
They don't say explicitly whether it will or will not be.

From the Ford Press Release News site:
https://media.ford.com/content/ford...s-pinnacle-of-mustang-5-0-liter-v8-style.html

"Satin Black side and hood stripes are included with reflective accent stripes in any of three colors: Red, White and Orange (Appearance Package only).
Exterior color options include the Mach 1 exclusive Fighter Jet Gray (Appearance Package only), as well as Iconic Silver, Shadow Black, Oxford White, Velocity Blue, Twister Orange, Race Red and Grabber Yellow."

^In terms of the colours and stripes, that's all that's said about what will be offered.

I'm probably in the minority, but I'm not a fan of the orange exterior striping and calipers of the Appearance Package. Just not a fan of orange, really.

No JFG for you!

Oh well, I'd like to see a pic of an Iconic Silver base car with the red accented stripes.....

I think the Mach 1 with the handling package will be quite a competitive car, and I'm liking the looks of it more and more. It's a more developed package that was tweaked and fine-tuned over the Bullitt and PPL2 Mustangs, obviously. It's more engineered than most are giving it credit for, gained from previous models.
The PPL2 was fairly close to a base GT350 (minus the cooling problems) in performance, so the Mach 1 should lay down some impressive numbers on the track and be great fun to drive!

The grille lights are to big. Looks cartoonish to me.

I'm looking forward to learning more about the reworked 10 speed automatic and the new torque converter. Getting the 10 speed to shift quicker manually would be an awesome improvement. Love the one I have I'm just saying we always want better stuff. Definitely looking at buying one. Does anyone know when they're going to open the order Banks?

That is the color I’m interested in with the red accent stripes and red calipers.

Take a look at the 69 Mach 1. They emulate the lights from that car. They do seem a little off with today's headlights but once you put real lights in there I think it is going to look great.

I don't know if anyone caught it, but you can definitely get the handling package with the 10 speed auto based on that video that was posted.

people speaking extemporaneously makes all kinds of mistakes in what they're saying. Until it's in print it means nothing.

Thanks for posting these!
I mentioned this in an earlier post, but it seems that either someone mixed up the tire sizes on the press photos, or just an honest mistake due to the units being pre-production units - the tire sizes on the press photos are not the same as this car at Tulsa.
Maybe they had more than one Handling Pack Mach 1 prototype, or, they switched tires.
-The above pics show a front tire of 305/30/19 - same as the specs listed
-Meanwhile, press photos/vid show a higher sidewall tire of 305/35/19 (the same size as the non-R GT350 rear tire)

I hope you’re right but this is all we have to go on so far.

The Handling Package – exclusively available with the Tremec™ 3160 6-speed manual transmission

The car is still a long way off so maybe after hearing from the fans they can figure out a way to make it work.

I have found fully loaded widebody 2019/2020 392 Challenger selling now for under 50K with power dollars discount and dealer offered ones.
I only found a couple within a 500 mile radius of me and both over 400 miles away. I still haven't decided if I want the WB with its pros and cons or a 1320 or the 50th. I really want to see some of the SS and gold rush in person.

Are those cooling vents in front wheel fender liner ?
Looks like it. Seeing as the bumper has open/functional vents, I'd guess they vent out into the wheel wells there.

It doesn't seem like you can't get the appearance package without first having the performance package. I guess all appearance package cars will be manual only.

There's 30-odd new 2019 Helcat's for that price too at one dealership.
No way under 50k. Koons did have some base models with no options and manual for just over 50k last time I looked, but you have to add at least 2k to their "wow" pricing to be accurate of what they actually charge. I sure wouldn't want to pay that much for a new car (even with over 700hp) that has cloth seats and is not auto. Plus on the street they are barely faster than the Scat Pack because you can't hook up all that power unless you put some huge wheels with sticky tires on the back.
