History of Galpin & The Mustang
At Galpin, we don’t just sell Mustangs, they believe in them, and are proud of them. Our love affair with the Mustang began in the mid-1960s, when we introduced the first in California. The Mustang was more than just a vehicle, it was a catapult for our future success.
The overnight popularity of the car helped us dominate the race-car circuit and to become a retail sales powerhouse as the largest Mustang seller in the United States. Mustang fever also launched Galpin into its leading role as a customization specialist: The car accounted for 25 percent of our annual customizing business.
We have an unparalleled confidence in the Mustang. Because of our longtime race-car sponsorships and its strong relationships with drivers, the dealership was doing performance and cosmetic upgrades on Mustangs almost from its inauguration into the market.
We’ve led the charge for special edition Mustangs, as through the years it was known for being the first Shelby Mustang dealer in California. It did not stop there, as we continued this tradition in the mid-1980s where they became one of the first Saleen Mustang dealers, and in 1996 became one of the first ROUSH Mustang dealers.
At Galpin, for us it was about more than just about being the first to sell a specific type of model Mustang, it was also about Mustang innovation and performance. A few examples of this include the following. In 1969, Galpin broke a 24-hour land speed record in a Mustang. We have been able have influenced Ford in the design of the Mustang. In 1980, years after the Mustang was discontinued by Ford, so we had a custom Mustang convertible built. The build was such a success that the Ford CEO at the time had the design sent back to Detroit, and years later, the Mustang convertible was back.
There are many other examples of in which have been ables to influence the design and performance of the Mustang. We have a rich history with the Mustang, and continue to champion it, pushing it to the next frontier.
