Mustang Times: Mustangs at the Museum

The August 2019 issue of Mustang Times features an article by Donald Farr on the current AACA Museum exhibit "Mustangs: Six Generations of America's Favorite Pony Car". The 1963 Mustang III Concept Show is described as "a cornerstone of the exhibit".

A cornerstone of the AACA exhibit is "Shorty,", the unique two-seater Mustang fastback also known as the Mustang III.  Requested by Ford Marketing, the car was built on a pre-production 1964 1/2 convertible by stylist Vincent Gardner, who shortened the wheelbase to 90 inches and fabricated the special fastback body in fiberglass. It was used as a display vehicle for Ford's Custom Car Caravan and other special exhibits from September 1964 to April 1965.
