1963 Mustang II
Posted by 70mach1 on Monday, May 18, 2020 3:48 PM

I attempted this back in 1965 and it didn't come out very good, 55 years later I got it done.  Lindberg kit, engine wired and plumbed.  Added details- master cylinder, windshield washer bag, distributor, lower ride height.  Refinished in PPG lacquer with Transtar clear.

Interesting vanity tag. Good looking build. When I saw Mustant II in your thread title I just had to see. I inherited my dad's 1976 Mustang II Ghia Coupe when he had to stop driving years ago. I sure would like to see a 1/24 scale model of that car.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Nice Mustang. You did fine work on everything, your interior really catches my eye. Nice paint job and as Frank mentioned, cool plate.

I was ready to exclaim that there was no Mustang II in 1963, until I looked it up because the body style had me confounded. A concept car. How about that.

AhA!

     A Mustang fit to be parked next to my " Maliblue" That paint is awesome! Now, Question. Are you going to put the doorsill trim plates in there? That would Really knock it out of the Park!

      I was hoping when FORD said " Mustang ll that this is what the "Stang" would look like. Not that downsized piece of %^$* that it was! So, I kept my 67 Fastback for another ten years.

Great job.  The pain is beautiful - the plate is hilarious :)

Thanks,

That is lovely.

In my imagination, all of my "50 years later" kits will come out that nicely.  I like the fact that you just made it more like what it was supposed to be, rather than using it as a base for a wild custom.

Great looking model!  Love the engine detail and the license plate is a hoot!
