Why? That type of thing should be illegal to do to a classic car like that. Putting diamond plate in the trunk is bad enough, but if you must sacrifice a pony, at least have the decency to cover it with a trunk lid.
Ok, yes it looks like a travesty, but this is in fact a very very very rare care, did i mention its rare, this was actually done in the 60′s by a customization shop in California, this car is actually wroth a great deal of money. This same company made a hard top convertible and a 2door wagon out of the 65-68 mustangs. BUT yes the person should be slap with a decaying salmon for putting the diamond plate and the bed rails.
i would say something about destroying a classic, but since the mustang is, always has been, and always will be, the shittiest excuse for a muscle/pony car ever made, i will just disguise my hate for mustangs as a comment that by the time you get done reading it will be too late to save yourself.
look, for those of you who think he should be shot…ill be right under that diamond plating when you pull the tiger, right beside the owner, and im gonna laugh when the round hits you instead. you see, unlike most cars on this site that make me wanna punch some1, id like to shake the hand of the owner of this car, even if they weren’t the ones who put the mod in, because id price this well above any other stang of that day. its very well done and it stands out, i could hide any other pony car classic that most of you would bye in a lot with its piers and you wouldn’t be able to tell which was yours, but ill be able to find this one cause the owner is bold enough to step outside the norm.
i have two questions for the owner, or anyone who may know the owner. 1) have you ever thought of putting some kind of cover over the bed? i wouldn’t want it to rust. 2)is it water tight? in other words, is it an accual bed? or just a look alike.
Quit your bitchin’ people. Ford actually had a hand in this monstrosity, and these Truckstangs were built by Beverly Hills Customs with FoMoCo’s blessing. Not many were made and not many were sold. They cost as much as a Shelby when new. I helped with the restoration of one. Yes, they are ugly, but only because all Mustangs are ugly to start with.
