17 more Mustang concepts that never came to be


Few cars have changed the automotive industry as much as the Ford Mustang. It gave rise to the pony car class, a segment that never existed. It remains the segment leader today, despite any number of ups and downs in its development.

The 70 Milano must be where Chrysler came up with the Challenger, or vice-versa. Up to the tail it has the lines of the Challenger.


YES! Thought the same thing as soon as I saw it. (Regarding the comment above that the Milano looks like the new Dodge/ Chrysler street machines)


That 4 door mustang may well have sold well. After all in 1964/5 there was not yet a Mustang mystique to upset by it. But it likely would have put quite a dent in Falcon sales - if not killed the Falcon, as they would have been in direct competition. It wasn’t so much building the 4 seat sedan that gutted the T-Bird mystique, and saved the Corvette, as it was not continuing to build the 2 seat roadster along side the sedan.


Sad that they didn’t go with a couple of these prototypes, especially the 1970 Milano concept. Even if they brought it out in today’s market it would be a success.
