1964 Two Seat Prototype "Shorty" Mustang

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Back in the early '60's, Ford Motor Company considered producing two seater Mustangs.  Obviously, a different route was finally chosen, but this "shorty" Mustang was designed by Vince Gardner and built in 1964 by Dearborn Steel Tubing.  DST still builds and maintains many Ford prototype, concept, and show vehicles.

 This "shorty" Mustang was taken on tour and Bill Snyder of Hudson, OH saw it and just had to have it.  It obviously wasn't for sale at that time.  Through a bizarre series of events though, Mr. Snyder actually ended up owning the car several years later.  It has recently been restored and made its debut at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida.
