Found something cool today! Time Trip!

Was checking out this old 1964 Mustang Advertising Commercial which includes a lot of Prototype Mustangs in it. Fast forward to 5min:15sec to 5min:19sec in the film and freeze it. It is the "Zebulon Pike Elementary School" on Chestnut street in Colorado Springs, Colorado where portions of this 1964 commercial was shot..

1964 Mustang Dealer Introduction Video:


And how the same site (Zebulon Pike Elementary School) looks today via Google Maps....54 years later! Not much has changed...!

https://www.google.com/maps/place/25...4d-104.8371593


Neat! Right??!

I love doing stiff like this... Finding old pics or video and comparing it on Google Maps from my living room what it looks like today....

Great stuff!!

)

Anyone got anything similar

Wow, that's a really cool video; especially considering it was filmed in my town! I recognize a lot of places to include Pikes Peak Highway, Garden of the Gods and Balanced Rock. Interesting they flew a film crew out to Colorado for this.

Thanks for sharing!

Another Prototype item that never made it to production.........but forget that... How about the Rally Pac! Check out that one...

In another part of the video, A White Mustang Hardtop opens up his driver side door.....Look at where the door latch is!....Total Prototype car....

How about the front Grille Notice that there are no side Spears on any of the Horse and Corrals on any of the cars...... Take a 2nd look!

All good stuff...!

I did notice that, but assumed is was something unique to the 64.5 Mustangs. Also, no fastbacks in that film. I don't think they were being produced during that filming.

Those cars were all Prototype cars in the video....Not even Pre-Production cars like Mustang#1 thru #212..... The Prototype cars preceded the Pre-Production cars...and I'm sure that just a handful were made.. before the cars went into Pre-Production. That film was probably made in the fall of 1963 or Spring 1964..

Did you guys ever see this video below??!?? Another Rare, but cool video...

Talk about jumping the gun to Early Pre-Production.....This commercial had to be pulled for obvious reasons... Don't even know if ever ran in Canada which was its original target market...


Enjoy...!

Min 5:45, headline courtesy light. Notice that none of the cars have rear side mirrors nor fender side cubic inches emblems.
Cool video.! Thank you Tony.

Production was already going by Spring '64, and I think the prototypes were around Jan '64.

"Production was already going by Spring '64, and I think the prototypes were around Jan '64."

Final designs were given the "Green light" by Iacocca in the last week of November 1963...

Would think that the "Prototype cars" were built at Allen Park and and done by Mid December '63 at least...
