Ford Mustang GT with over 700000 miles on it

Now, let me tell you, it’s impossible to verify every claim of mileage out there. A lot of these stories come from forums  and websites where hearsay is the word of the hour. Despite this, I still like to hear about these people and their cars.  Shirley Fender and her 1989 Mustang GT  went the distance,  and she posted about here on Ford Social to share her achievement.  I’m willing to take people at their word, and so I’ll salute you Shirley, I if you find us here at High Mile Club, let us know if the Mustang is still out there on the road. BTW, let us know if a dealer or company actually gave you something for showing off your high mile car. It would be interesting to see how often this happens.

Update: I dug up this article about her, and it seems like she was aiming for a million miles on the original engine. Is also appears her story is quite legit.  I wonder how close she is to that goal. Shirley, if you are out there, check in with us and tell us how your car is doing.

  1. I was Shirleys neighbor for my entire life in Marshall, North Carolina. I was very close to her and rode in this car quite a few times. She was so happy of her little white mustang. Everyone knew it was her driving along and everyone knew the car. She unfortunatley passed away a few years ago. She was a wonderful and kind woman. I am happy to say she did pass her 1 Million mile mark before she passed. It was a life goal of hers and she did it!
