KYLIE Johnson couldn't wipe the smile off her face yesterday as she took possession of her new car.

Mrs Johnson was picking up the first Ford Mustang in Bundaberg made specifically for Australia.

"I'm very excited to have my new Ford Mustang," she said.

Although she had not had the chance to drive the car yet, Mrs Johnson said her new red vehicle looked good.

Mrs Johnson sat in her car in the driveway at Coral Coast Ford while she was instructed in her new car's dashboard.

"This is probably history," she said.

"My husband has always been a Ford man.

"I can't wait to drive it."

Mrs Johnson was adamant about whose car this was.

"This is mine," she said.

She said she was not particularly a car enthusiast.

Mrs Johnson agreed the Mustang was not a family car.

"It's a fun car," she said.

After her short stint sitting in the driver's seat, Mrs Johnson said it was very comfortable.

Then she was off down the driveway to take her new Mustang for her first drive in it.

Coral Coast Ford dealer principle Richard Seares said the new Mustang would sell for between $50,000 and $70,000, depending on accessories.

He said he had sold 15 of them so far.
