1964 Two Seat Prototype "Shorty" Mustang

Back in the early '60's, Ford Motor Company considered producing two seater Mustangs.  Obviously, a different route was finally chosen, but this "shorty" Mustang was designed by Vince Gardner and built in 1964 by Dearborn Steel Tubing.  DST still builds and maintains many Ford prototype, concept, and show vehicles.

This "shorty" Mustang was taken on tour and Bill Snyder of Hudson, OH saw it and just had to have it.  It obviously wasn't for sale at that time.  Through a bizarre series of events though, Mr. Snyder actually ended up owning the car several years later.  It has recently been restored and made its debut at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida.

Check out more details of the story here.

1966 Mustang Convertible - Customer Car Feature


We always love to feature Customer Mustangs here on our Virginia Classic Mustang Blog.  If you have any pictures of your car to share, send them our way!  Here is our latest feature!  Check out this nice 1966 Mustang Convertible!

I have a 66 Mustang 6 cylinder convertible that I am very proud of and would like to share with you. The car started out as a complete "rust bucket" and after 2 yrs I have turned it to a 100% concours restoration that has the car looking exactly like it did on a Ford dealers showroom in 1966. I started the restoration in 2011 and finished it in August of 2013. . The final body prep and paint, were done by a local Ford dealer, and I had the cloth top put on, all the rest of the restoration was done by me.

The car has won first place at all the shows it was entered in. It took Gold at a recent MCA National event, and First Prize at the AACA Nationals. It has been featured on the Powernation TV series hosted by Courtney Hanson, and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Mustang Times.


I have a facebook page which is a photographic journal of the restoration of the car and her continuing adventures:

New Mustang Leather Key Fob

Mustang Leather Key Fob
Mustang Leather Key Fob / Key Chain
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Just in!  This brand new Leather Key Fob is really nice!  At 3 3/4 inches high by 1 3/4 inches wide, it is a bit bigger than the old traditional key fobs that we carried back in the 1980's.  That alone makes it really nice. This key fob also features an embossed aluminum stick on emblem.  The emblem is of a very high quality with a blue background and the traditional tri-bar red, white, and blue Mustang Running Horse emblem.

Since the logo is embossed, it "stands out" on the aluminum disc for a great detailed look.  The disc also features 3M peel off adhesive to stay put!

Our part number is AC-52.
