I see a lot of the '71-'73 Mustang in those sketches.

Also note the MACH I emblem

Thanks for sharing those.

The Lounge / Re: Fastest car of the 60s? Lambroghini Miura?

Although I consider the Miura (SV) to be the most beautiful car ever penned, It wouldn't hold a candle to the GT40 in terms of all out speed.

If it indeed made it to 175, I would guess it would take several miles to get up to that speed and the lift would be so incredible, you may not have much steering input, if any at all.

The front engine Daytona was a 170 mph car and it had a couple of aerodynamic advantages at that speed.

And at this juncture, Shelby Engineering was in Dearborn/Detroit as a division of Ford?

^^^ are these posts implying A.O. Smith were the designers?

I thought they were just the contract builders.

MLPlunkett - I am moving a little off-topic, but I just finished installing a rebuilt 428 in my '67 and found the Mansfield Mustang site a big help. Just reading through their website was helpful research and they offer a lot of parts that help detail the engine. Good luck with your build.

Good to hear. Reminds back of when color changes were commonplace as it was all about enjoying your car as much as possible.

Fiberglas model January 1968, so you know there were drawings prior.

There was also a fiberglas convertible, but no photos have turned up yet.

Was any particular individual or team credited for the design?

I believe the fiberglass of the '69-'70's to be one of the most inspired, beautiful designs to ever come out of Detroit (Dearborn) and enjoy discussing them with my buddy of 41 years.

With that said, we came to a question I wasn't sure about. I always thought the overall design was an in-house Ford design that was never really credited to one team or individual.

Am I mistaken?

Grab the latest issue of TIME. I just read thru it.

It is no longer a journalistic endeavor.
