When I get my convertible finished, I'm buying one of these bodies! This would be an awesome project to build as a match to my car!

How can you tell when a father really loves his daughter?

When he is happy to be photographed in a bright pink Mustang that he will be giving her for her birthday tomorrow.

This is actually the Coval version made by the company that bought out the Powercar company. The frame is different but the body is the same.

Of course if you want a 1965-66 Mustang JR I have the original factory body molds from the Powercar company. along with many other reproduction parts,
I have been making a new steering wheel mold this weekend
I am a newbie in this forum, so i would like to make a new member and contribute my ideas and improve my knowledge from the others.I was registered at your forum. I have printed the test message. Do not delete, please.Gee! this thread will attract many people to give more info.

Project mini me has started

For all of you guys that have been watching this thread I have some news.

Project mini me has started
project Mini me

The early mustang club of colorado has been restoring mustangs that are raffled for charity and this year they are doing a 66 Mustang convertible and they are also building a Mustang JR to match. The full size will be the grand prize and the junior will be the 2nd place prize for the raffle.

they are also documentoing the build online and will be basically making a "how to make a mustang JR manual" during the build. I am donating all of the minor parts and sold them the body and frame at cost. I am also covering shipping costs. As a primary sponsor of this build. keep track of the build and buy some tickets for your chance and a good cause.

The club members will be donating their talents and all the other parts to complete the build. it will also be used in lots of promotions for the charity

forum masters would this be appropriate to post this information on the main page?

You bet! I still haven't had a chance to do anything with it, but I'm hoping to get going with it this year.

Had someone send me some vintage photos that i thought you guys (and gals) might like? The car was purchased new by the owner of anchor supply in Pittsburgh for his daughter but she never used it. The next owner is who sent me the pictures. he said after they outgrew it they had to give it to their cousins who after using it a little while traded it for a minibike. That owner ended up tossing it in a dumpster after a couple years of abuse.



It was a gas powered 1967

The serial number plate should be attached to the body behind the drivers side of the seat. The seat would actually cover it since it was on the lip inside the cockpit area.
Plywood floorpan is correct for electric powered versions however the side panels should be fiberglass board.
there are many pictures on the misc images page at the bottom of the mustang page on my website that show the interior. Can you post some pictures of yours?

Just an FYI


I dropped these two 1967 bodies off at the fiberglass shop yesterday and the black one that is on the best condition will have the hole in the hood and all of the other problems fixed and all of the paint stripped to reveal all of the original details. A mold will then be made from the body that has been repaired and refined and then 67 bodies will be available.

After the 67 body mold is done I will then start work on the 1971-72 Mustang Junior body mold.

The 71-72 version was made by the Conval company that bought out the Powercar company and continued making their old body styles until 1971 when the Ford Motor company contracted them to make another miniature Mustang version to be used by dealerships in sales promotions.

The bodies all came from a driver education/ public safety program focused at kids. The cars were electric powered and had hood scoops that allowed them to access the batteries to charge them easier.

Here are some poor but better than nothing pictures.
