Because of the large number of military personnel overseas, Ford, like most other manufacturers, exported vehicles for purchase through the military PX system. They encountered a problem with the Mustang. HDK, an European manufacturer of large trucks, had the copyright to the name Mustang for use in Germany. Therefore, before any Mustangs could be exported to Germany, the name had to be changed. Since T5 was the project name of the original Mustang prototype, the Mustangs for export to Germany were renamed T5. New fender emblems were added, and any reference to Mustang on the vehicle was removed. In 1971, 277 T5 Fastbacks were exported to Germany. However, only two were Mach 1′s. It is believed one of the two was destroyed long ago in europe.
