There is a brief appearence of a Mustang in the new TV ad for 'Pepsi Blue.' It shows several old muscle-cars hot-rodding down a dark city street,and one of the cars appears to be a '69 Shelby GT convertible. If you look closely however, it is really a 71 or 72 convertible that has been painted with the 69 Shelby side stripes, complete with the side brake scoops. It actually looks pretty good like that.

Classic Mustangs are by far the most common cool older car you see in commercials, tv shows, and movies.

If a director wants to give someone a touch of class or style, they stick them in a Mustang!

Since I first saw that commercial, I have 'discovered' the existence of the 1971 version of the 'Shelby-Europa' models availible only in Europe. That is what appears to be in the commercial we are talking about.
It is basically a 71-style convertible with 'Shelby' lower side-brake scoops, 1969-'Shelby' style side stripes and the 2-piece Kelsy-Hayes 'Magstar' wheels. It looks surprisingly good with this trim on it.
I'm wondering how 'official' of a 'Shelby' it really is. Considering that Carroll Shelby will whore-out his name and reputation to anybody with a few nickels to offer him, they probably have his officail 'stamp of approval' on them.
