Beep beep'm beep beep yeah!

Both cars were taken straight off Ford’s San Jose assembly line and the Motor Company commissioned George Barris to personalize these cars for Sonny and Cher.

Sonny’s Mustang was finished in Murano Gold Pearl, with a dark brown side panel and orange and gold fade-away treatment over the wheel wells and grille openings. The interior was upholstered with Bobcat fur and antique buffed leather trimmed with rustic suede.

Cher’s Mustang featured a hot pink pearl finish, blended with candy red, deep red side panels and a matching fade-away treatment. It also had white Ermine fur and black antique Scottish leather upholstery, trimmed in hot pink suede.

Both cars were fitted with opulent three-inch long Mouton fur carpeting, Sonny’s in gold and Cher’s in hot pink.

Both cars were used in Sonny and Cher’s only feature-length movie, Good Times(1967).

Good Times is a 1967 musical comedy film starring Sonny and Cher. Sonny and Cher appear as themselves in this spoof of various movie genres: mysteries, westerns and spy thrillers.

The plot revolves around a movie contract offered to Sonny by executive Mr. Mordicus, played by George Sanders. Sanders also plays the antagonist in each of Sonny's ideas for the proposed movie, which are played out in a number of skits featuring music and dancing.

The movie is best known as the directorial debut of William Friedkin, who would go on to direct The French Connection, for which he won the Oscar for best director in 1971. He would also direct The Exorcist, for which he received a best director nomination.


  1. As you already know, I'm not a huge Cher fan, but I do love her car! I am a pink gal through and through, and I think driving a pink car would be a total delight!

    I'm glad to see this series back again, Dawn. It's always so fun.

    Have a great day,

  2. Thank you Patti, I would love to drive Cher's car. I also love this series is fun to put together.

  3. I love Cher's Barbie-pink car!

    I've never seen "Good Times". Was it one of George Sanders' final roles?
