John Najjar Sketch for 1963 Ford Mustang II Concept Car

Summary

When the two-seat Mustang I concept car caused so much excitement in 1962, Ford worried that buyers might be disappointed in the four-seat production Mustang already in development. The company built the four-seat Mustang II concept car in 1963 to prepare customers for the general shape and look of the production car. It worked -- few complained about the 1965 Mustang.
