What "almost"- Mustang do you wish Ford would have offered...

The Mustang was clearly marketed as a "secretary's car" when it debuted. The plethora of options (a new development at the time) gave way to the ad phrase "the car designed to be designed by you."


A "sporty" car to be sure, but the real Muscle "face" of the car was worked in later, beginning in '67.

I like that station wagon idea....pretty cool photoshop.


As for what "almost" was offered, I really would love to see what Shelby would have done with the big girls! I like to dream that the GT350 would have been a nicely done up Cleveland (if Shelby had still had his hands involved with it, think of the aftermarket parts that might have been!). Of course the GT500 would have to be at least a bumped up 460....or the rumored 500+ inch versions that Ford was dreaming up.


I know there was the Shelby Europa, to me it was just like the Mexcian Shelbys....someone else using his name to sell it.


Just my .02 censts worth.


Actually now that I think about it....if the Boss 302 was carried over like the prototypes showed....but done for the coupes as a performance package, hmmmmmmm.

I know the story on the Twister Special 1970 Mach 1's. But I saw one when I was a kid in person and I just loved the tornado on the rear quarters.


So I would have liked a Texas Twister Special since I am a native Texan. Imagine a 1971-73 Twister Special!


We have lots of tornados in Texas too!
