Here's What Makes John Wick's 1969 Mustang So Special
For car enthusiasts, one of the most significant selling points of the “John Wick” series of films is the title character’s car: a Ford Mustang. However, it isn't just any Mustang — the car featured in the movie is a 1969 Boss 429, a celebrated classic and among the best Mustangs ever produced ... or so it seemed on the big screen.
John Wick supposedly drives this version of the Mustang, as evidenced by a callout during the first movie, but viewers with keen eyes quickly noticed some details that didn't add up, making it clear the car featured in the series is actually a Mach 1 Mustang. There are many small elements that give away the secret like the hood scoop that was unique to the Mach 1.
No one seems to be sure why the “John Wick” car isn't the Mustang Boss 429. Sometimes film sets simply can't find certain vehicles and are forced to do their best; however, this mix-up may be a subtle hint to viewers that this main character doesn't even know his car. Either way, it makes for a pretty interesting story from one of the most successful action movie franchises.
