Awe, you wouldnt drive that?  ;)

That would be a fun project to build that car!

I think I saw a photo of the left side of the car and it looks a different? A+ if you can find that photo.


Pete,
I had posted this second concept photo on forum 1.0, before it was lost.
Ford typically took eight photos of each design so I know there are 6 more (angles) out there.

Nice job! That spoiler blends in on the other photo. Also interesting they dont include side marker lights, when they were a federal requirement

Lets build it

I think that last number is the photo number, so possibly 22 more photos!

Based on the Ford concepts block date and designation -19 and -24 this was the third design concept.
I've even figured out the other views and their dash "- #" we would see for each of them
I'd love to see what the other concept designs were. This concept's nose piece is really off putting for my tastes.

There are other "Mustang" design concepts of the time period that clearly show some Shelby influence from the 69-70 GT350/500s.

Coralsnake's knowledge and docs tell the history.

I can't imagine CS ever opting out of a deal where someone paid him.

CS was no longer involved in the street cars beyond being a smiling face for ads. He was a contract race team only by this time. Ford had taken over all the assets (cars, tooling, trademarks, etc) mid way through the 1967 production.
