Between March 5th, 1964 and late June 1973, Ford built approximately 2,978,272 Mustangs at their three U.S. plants -- these numbers are well documented.
However, even many of the most fervent U.S. Mustang fanatics are largely unaware that Mustangs were also built at five Ford locations outside of the U.S.:
Mexico City's "La Villa" plant
Valencia, Venezuela (starting in October 1966)
Lima, Peru (starting in November 1966)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands (starting in September 1965)
and in a pilot program, 200+ U.S.-built 1965/66 Mustangs were converted to righthand drive at Ford's plant in Homebush (a suburb west of Sydney), Australia (July 1965 - September 1966)
Since few of these cars ever made it to the United States, there has been virtually no acknowledgement of these cars by "official" Mustang publications, save for the rare "Shelby de Mexico" feature. Even Jim's Haskell and Smart were only able to obtain four Mexican Mustang serial numbers -- and virtually no other information concerning these cars.
The "South of the Border Mustang Registry" and this website are dedicated to collecting and presenting all possible information concerning these "forgotten" examples of our beloved Classic Mustangs.
