Ford phantom


When it was introduced in 1987, the Chrysler Phantom caused an unusual stir. It was, without a doubt, the most modern car offered at that time in our country (it should be remembered that at that time, the Mexican market was limited to the brands that manufactured in the country, that is, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Nissan and Volkswagen. All this would change in 1994 with the opening to automotive imports), and also the sportiest, thanks to its 2.2 liter turbocharged and intercooled 150 hp engine, backed by a 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic transmission, which made it the fastest car that could be bought in Mexico.

The Chrysler Phantom was an immediate success, and over time it got better and better. In 1990 the 2.2 engine gave way to a 2.5 also turbocharged, which had 160 hp and more torque thanks to its larger displacement, and in 1991 the automatic gearbox gained a ratio, being now a 4-speed.


When by the late 1920s Henry Ford’s legendary Ford T (Tin Lizzie) could already be considered somewhat outdated, Ford decided to suspend production for a few months in order to complete as quickly as possible the construction of the model intended to replace it.[8][9][10] It was not until December 1927 that the new Ford A was launched and developed in a record time of eight months. Among the advantages of this new car were the new three-speed gearbox, hydraulic shock absorbers and four-wheel braking system. It was notable for its rod-spoke wheels, windshield wipers and had a fuel gauge and ammeter. The maintenance interval was every 1000 kilometers, being free of charge for the first 3000 kilometers.

Juan Hernández Iglesias usually parks his 1935 Ford Phantom right in front of the majestic Havana Capitol, built in 1929 and very similar to the one in Washington DC. I found it there one afternoon when I was walking along Prado Avenue, where the Capitol is located, and I could not resist the temptation to stop and inquire about the vehicle.

In terms of comfort and convenience, the Ford included elements now forgotten, such as handles (in coupes) on the interior pillars, the rear windshield lowered like a window, and the dashboard had all its electrical instruments, including engine temperature gauge.
