Vanilla Ice shows off her Mustang 5.0 from Ice Ice Baby Video
Who doesn’t know the song “Ice Ice Baby”? Plagiarism issues aside, those old enough to remember its release back then and those who heard its infectious beat and lyrics many years later should be very familiar with Vanilla Ice.
And what better way to incorporate a rapper’s lifestyle than to showcase his rides. For Robert Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice, it was the Mustang 5.0 that appeared on the original video for the chart-topping hit.
If you’re wondering if the car still survives after it appeared in the music video, Van Winkle has a new ICT Tac clip showing the Fox-body Mustang, apparently in mint condition.
The social media post reads:
Word to the 5.0, yes indeed I still have my original mustang 5.0 from the ice ice baby video. Check it out.
The clip started at the back where Miami’s iconic “GO ICE” license plate is. He continued to show the sides, then the interior, loaded with custom upholstery. Of course, Vanilla Ice’s famous Cupid logo holding a machine gun was ubiquitous throughout the cabin, complemented by the white and red theme.
Up front, the Ice Ice Baby Mustang looks clean. The 5.0 liter engine again got a custom engine cover, complete with the Cupid logo. If you think this car has remained untouched since the 90s, you are wrong.
In early 2020, Van Winkle announced that the restoration of the original Fox-body Mustang 5.0 was complete. It took four years to bring the ‘Stang back to life and he was quoted as being very pleased with the outcome of the restoration work.
If you’re interested in buying this car out of nostalgia, we don’t know if Van Winkle is selling Ice Ice Baby Mustang given how many times he’s reminded the world that the car is with him. Either way, you might want to hit it.
