Just a few days ago we ran a piece on the 1963 Mustang II concept/prototype in the collection of the Detroit Historical Museum, so it was a very pleasant surprise to find the exact vehicle sitting somewhat ignored in the basement at Cobo Hall, surrounded by the rat rods and other cars that the Detroit Autorama deemed not nice enough to be on the main floor upstairs. The Mustang II concept, though, can be said to be the first Mustang and it’s probably worth as much as all the other Mustangs in the show combined, including the Ridler finalist Shelby GT500, Kardiac. I bet most of the folks who walked by it without taking a second glance probably figured it was just another customized first gen ‘Stang.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
