Ford Mustang Mach IThis is a featured page

Tiffany Case's car in Diamonds are Forever. Bond uses the Mach I to elude the police after escaping from Blofeld's secret weapons research lab. In the scene 007 tips the car on two wheels to drive through a narrow alley in a stunt that was popularized by stunt driver Joie Chitwood, who had a traveling stunt car show in the day. Chitwood was also a car stunt coordinator on Live and Let Die. Remember the 360 degree car flip across the river? See the AMC Hornet post. Actually both Sean Connery and Jill St. John really flipped the car no wires! Movie mistake has the mustang going in the no through alley on its right wheels, and re-emerging on its left wheels!

The Mach 1 is arguably the last of the true American muscle cars of the era as the OPEC oil embargo and an influx of affordable fuel efficient Japanese cars caused auto makers to begin downsizing their inventories.

This car resides at the Bond Museum in Keswick.

Shame the "Continuity" people never took a photo of the Mustang going into the Dead End....It comes out the other side the opposite to how it went in...Hence the extra vision of the car supposedly turning in the lane...
