1965 Ford Mustang Comes Home After 50 Years: Video


You know the adage: sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. The video above is an exemplary instance of this, as a 1965 Ford Mustang returns home to the dealer from whom it was first purchased after no fewer than 50 years.

This 1965 Ford Mustang was purchased brand new from Loudon Motors in Minerva, Ohio by Terry Maxfield in September of 1964. Maxfield, now five decades older, originally went into the dealership looking to buy a family car to accommodate her two children, but upon spotting the Caspian Blue 1965 Ford Mustang, she simply had to have it.

Half-a-century later, Ms. Maxfield decided that it would make more sense to sell the car rather than keep it, so she went back to the source: Loudon Motors in Minerva. The dealership, it turned out, was still in business, now being run by the former dealer’s son. So, she sold the 1965 Ford Mustang back to the business¬†from which it had come brand new in the ’60s.

Ms. Maxfield still retains “visitation rights,” as she puts it.
