Thanks to current owner
Ed Herbst we got some new pictures of the Goldfinger Mustang Fastback
in October 2011.
After running them in our club mag, they
are finally online as of 2013.
We hope to see the car at the 50th

Article in Octane December 2008
Tania Mallet finally made it back to the
Bond movies Goldfinger locations at the Furka pass in
Switzerland.The pic shows her in Sept. 2008. With help trough
our european Mustang network, we took care that a suitable
Mustang was on site to play a major role in the recreation of
the chase scenes.
It must have been a lot of fun for
our Mustang fellow Peter Lanz and his Mustang to follow or
overtake the DB5 of a british collector during a restaging of
the Goldfinger scenes at the original locations in Switzerland.
Klaus from www.early-mustang.com
and myself and Iso Schwager from the Swiss Mustang Club made
it happen for him to join the gang of this famous couple of
cars and a Rolls Royce Phantom used by Goldfinger himself in
the movie. Accompanied by a Shelby GT500 and a AM DBS the
pictures and movie are worth to see in the near future on TV
and in further publications aside from this month Octane.
A nice roof console, cosmetic box, a few extra accent
decals or numbered Goldfinger plate on the dash and off for sale
would be a limited run of 750 cars easily. Let's see :)
For those interested more in the original 1965 model golden Fastback
pls. review our
page with new pictures contributed by Matthew Mark Chitwood in
there be a new Goldfinger Mustang?
Sudden interest in the car let us believe it already in 2009, but
maybe 2014 is the better date for a 50th Anniversary version.
Well it did not
happen in 2009, but what about a 2012 version.
A simple dress up package with
some gadgets inside? Why not. Could be a hot seller any day.
Ford did not build it back then in 1964, but today it would be a
nice addition to any boulevard, hotel lobby, airport promo...even
any car show.
A golden Pony emblem, a sidestripe with Goldfinger emblems and the
secretary driving this car would be a real glamour girl suddenly.
Isn't that the genuine message from Ford back then.

Mystery for Bond and Aston
Alan Mann of Alan Mann Racing said, he located
the DB5 for the race
We have also word of ex-Alan Mann mechanic John Grant that the car -
while being returned to the UK - was crashed slightly.
I guess DB5 maniacs
shure know a little bit more about this.
Is this the 2nd DB5 used in the movie or really a 3rd one?
Actually there were 4 DB5 in total. One is in Switzerland as of
2011. They found crash traces up front.
