2018 Mustang Convertible Debuts at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach


We corner Ford Performance’s Jim Owens to discuss the new Mustang

We were already planning the three hour trip down to Palm Beach, Florida to cover other aspects of the 2017 Barrett-Jackson auction when we received a note from one of its public relations staff that Ford would debut the convertible body style for the freshened 2018 redesign coming at the end of this calendar year. Not only would it be one of the first pre-production convertibles displayed in the United States, but Ford Performance Marketing Manager (and great friend to the Mustang faithful) Jim Owens would be on site to go over the 2018 model changes—what’s been confirmed and can be discussed anyway. We moved a few things around in our Barrett-Jackson schedule and happily met up with Jim on Friday afternoon.

If you’ve never been to a Barrett-Jackson event it is a living, breathing entity all in its own world. Even the smaller satellite events like Palm Beach, while nothing like the Scottsdale opener in January, are still ginormous events packed with people. That said it is always noisy and crowded, so being able to interview Jim on Friday was a much better situation than having to speak with him on Saturday when the show floor is truly a madhouse. Still, with the nearby Dodge booth trying to get some camera attention (who set’s a car alarm on a show floor?) and our lapel mic deciding it was going to fail minutes before we needed it, we’re grateful to be able to spend a good 15 minutes going over what Ford can say/release about the 2018 to date. So grab a cup of coffee or your favorite drink and click play on the video and take a closer look at the 2018’s styling in our photo gallery below.
