Ford has announced a temporary production halt at their Flint Rock production facility, beginning today and running for approximately one week. The suspension has nothing to do with a shortage of parts from Japan (although that is impacting other Ford plants, such as their Louisville, KY truck plant), but rather excess supply of Mustangs. The automaker currently has a 116 inventory of Mustangs, which is roughly double the inventory Ford considers to be ideal. Chances are good that Ford will take steps to promote Mustang sales, so I’d expect to see cash rebates and low interest financing on Mustang V6 and GT models in the very near future.
The Boss 302 Mustang, on the other hand, is not suffering from excess inventory. Ford was clear that the track-centric ‘Stang would be limited in production, especially if you wanted the even more limited edition Laguna Seca Boss 302. A quick search of eBay Motors shows new Boss Mustangs listed “buy it now” prices ranging from $47,000 all the way up to $108,500 for a Laguna Seca version at a Houston, TX dealership. Good luck with that.
