2003 Ford Mustang Concept
When the 2005 Ford Mustang arrived it replaced a car that had galloped on much the same legs since 1979. A chassis that old was mind blowing given today’s fast evolving auto technologies and buyers volatile tastes.
Relatively speaking, in that time span, the birth of the minivan and the mass popularization of the SUV. Two new generations of Corvettes. The Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird had been redone twice and passed on. In the meantime, the Mustang maintained a legion of fans, scored countless race wins and championships, and continued to ring the cash register for the Blue Oval.
For 2005, everything old was new again. Ford Automotive operations Vice President of Design J Mays and his team cooked up a strong, heritage flavored design for this important nameplate, sporting a stance that was bold, visually well proportioned, and containing a tangy blend of late 60’s pony car cues.
