Ford fFord found mid-engine Mustang concept photosound mid-engine Mustang concept photosApril 7, 2020
The American automaker presented photos of the long-developed Mustang mid-engined concept. It is noteworthy that everyone in the company forgot about this version of the machine.
Chevrolet Corvette switched to the mid-engine layout in 2019 after 66 years of existence on the market. During this period, several concept cars with an engine behind the seats were developed. Around the same time, Ford also “played with the idea” of creating a mid-engined sports car.
Four images published by Ford Performance on its official website tell the story of the Mustang mid-engined Mustang concept, although the word “history” may not be the best term to use in this case, since the “blue oval” knows little about the origin of the car …
The company mentions that it came across these images five years ago and has since been trying to find out the history of the car imprinted on them.
Former Ford archival boss Dean Weber contacted Mustang model columnist John Clore of Ford Performance and John Clinnard of West Coast Public Relations to solve this mystery, but it was all in vain. According to available information, we are looking at a concept based on the iconic sports coupe of the 1966 model, which was photographed at a design studio in Dearborn on May 2, 1966.
The Ford guys are so desperate to find that they are now turning to all of us in an attempt to discover the whole story of an intriguing concept. The American company will award “experts” with a “special prize” if the information provided helps Ford fill in the gaps. Regardless of whether it was a small project created by several ambitious students or something else, the car should have an interesting story that we want to hear.
