I dont really need an excuse to post my all time favourite pop video - Martha Reeves and the Vandellas doing "Nowhere to run" on the' 65 Mustang line but I've found one - a nice vid of building F -150 trucks today. Both vids are the Ford profit machine in full flow.
So here is the original - and wonderful- video
and in 2014 , almost 50 years later.
The change in working conditions is a social and industrial commentary on its own. Compare the Mustang spray booth conditions with the guy who has a power seat to shoot him into the F-150 cab.at 1.00 on the video.
Also the sheer compexity and quality control of the modern F 150 versus the Mustang is striking. The Mustang can be thrown together but the F 150 is mass of harnesses and door modules etc.
A modern Ford cost engineer and acountant would probably drool over the short build time of the classic Mustang.
With today's obsession with retro couldn't Ford re-do the orginal video ?
