I saw it, yeah it was a 67 or 68 GT, they only showed the grill where you can identify which year it was for a split second and I blinked.
But I thought it was cool, loved the acting style. awesome.

Saw the movie right after my classes ended for the semester and it was amazing! Marvel has done an awesome job of turning these movies out with really great plotlines and action recently. Very impressed with that.

2015: 3,000 mile trip to Knotts in CA, CO to East Coast, an engine rebuild or two
2016: East Coast to TX, Hot August Nights, more trips to the East Coast
2017: Several long trips in the works! Stay tuned

I was wondering what year that Mustang was... If I'm not mistaken, the front end looks different at the end of the movie than it did the first time you see it (almost like Stark had it fixed up).

During the previews, they showed the next "Fast and Furious" (think that's what its called), and one of the scenes shows a white 69' or 70' getting crushed by a tank. Ugh!

Yes excellent movie. Robert Downey Jr. hands down my favorite actor. So glad he beat the drug addiction, of course he got a lot of help from a Mustang guy, Tim Allen.

Yep, saw it too. Definitely a CJ car with the black stripe on the hood. The first "under construction" shot was so dark in the garage I thought the car was a '68 Torino!

Oh, and the Mustang in the next F&F is the '69 white "Anvil" Mustang (well a clone anyway).

Iron man 3 - saw it - liked it - and was sad the story seems to be ending
