First Press Releases about Dutch Mustang assembly
26 April 1965 / Ford Amsterdam is going to assembly Mustangs for the European market > Henry Ford II has announced that Ford will start with the sale of the Mustang outside the United States. In September 1965 the “NV Nederlandsche Ford Automobiel Fabriek” in Amsterdam is going to be integrated for the assembly of Mustangs for the whole of Europe. The fabric in Amsterdam already assemblies the English Ford line for the Benelux, from Anglia to Zodiac and the American models Fairlane, Mercury Comet and the English truck.
July 1965 / Ford Amsterdam prepares for Mustang assembly > Ford Amsterdam is proud that Holland has been chosen to undertake the assembly of the Mustang for the European Market. Ford Amsterdam hopes to deliver the first copies of this new “European” prestige car, which has become an unknown success in America, as early as the end of September.
Sept. 1965 / Mustang advances in Europe > Now Mustangs, intended for export, are being manufactured in the enormous Ford Fabric in Metuchen, New Jersey, not far from New York. But to be able to satisfy the large European request for Mustangs, the Ford Fabric in Amsterdam will start this month with the assembly of this car for the European market.
