Johnny Lightning Mustang

I was told this model was a prototype of the Mustang. The front end was different from the real 64 1/2 and 65. Do you think that is a true story?

Yes and no. Google and make a decision for yourself. It won't matter on the eBay ad price.

Yes, It was a Prototype Mustang...It's the 1963 Mustang II Prototype car. It's still around today. It's owned by the Detroit Historical Society Museum and was donated to them by Ford in 1975. The Museum also has the Cougar II and its near identical Convertible brother, The Cobra XD as well which both get loaned out every few years. The car can be seen online at the Museum's website....but there are also plenty of Modern and Vintage pics of the car. Sometime in the 1980's the car was put on loan to other museums in the country and some dopey museum person backed the car up into something on the Rear Driver's side of the car. Noone ever fixed it. The damage is still there. The paint on the car is still 100% Original which the museum boasts about the car. It's Original Striped Removal hardtop is still around too. It's Prototype "winged" Original Rear Gas Cap is went missing some time in the 1970's... The rest of the car is 100% Original. It still runs and drives just fine today and has a "K'- Code experimental motor in it. The windshield is a bit raked and a few inches shorter than a stock '65-'66 Windshield. That's about it!
