This is a Pinto Concept, they did a Mustang II Concept like this as well.  The Maverick Sign hanging there is not for this Car, if you look, there is a Torino and a Thunderbird Sign still needing to be hung up.

1964 1964 Allegro with adjustable pedals seen in the Allegro concept would eventually find their way into production, as would the tiltaway steering wheel to allow easy egress (although the cantilever design with push-button adjustability shown in the video never reached production). The Allegro concept lived on in several other forms, including a roadster variant with styling similar to the fastback

But the Mustang knocked its block off, hence no Allegro...

Tony, no problem, I've deleted my post as well, this should be an interesting thread, some pretty wild concepts, especially from the

 '50s, we were all supposed to be the Jetson's today !
