Ford Mustang: The wildest offshoots inspired by the original pony car
The Mustang could have morphed into anything in the years following its 1964 introduction.
Ford experimented with front- and mid-engined models, two- and four-door variants and even more spacious body styles designed with families in mind. Its positioning as a two-door was cemented in the minds of enthusiasts by the end of the 1970s so executives never dared to stray far from it.
This will change when the company introduces an electric, four-door SUV called Mustang Mach E. The connection between the two models is only skin-deep and they share no major mechanical parts. There’s no question that putting such a heritage-laced name on a car that’s decidedly un-Mustang-like is a bold move on the part of product planners, one sure to receive praise and criticism in equal amounts.
While we wait for the opportunity to drive the Mustang Mach E, we’re taking a look at some of the wildest Mustang off-shoots made by Ford and coachbuilders since the early 1960s.
