Next-Gen Ford Mustang Spied For The First Time With Production Body
The redesigned pony car should have a familiar face.
We've known for some time that the seventh-generation Ford Mustang is deep into development. Occasional sightings of test mules haven't revealed much in the way of styling, but now we have our first look at the next Mustang wearing its production body.
This prototype is obviously well hidden beneath heavy camouflage, but we can still see the outline of a grille similar to present-day Mustangs behind the lighter coverings. The camouflage on the front mimics the GT500's face, but don't be concerned about the new Mustang adopting a massive grille similar to the BMW 4 Series. We can see a bumper separating the grille from the lower fascia, and we can also make out thin headlights flanking the opening. Overall, the nose looks more angular and perhaps a bit flatter and narrower compared to the sixth-generation car on sale today.
In today's world of car collecting, resto-mods are becoming more of a common occurrence. Modern performance, dependability, and reliability are just a few of the reasons why we are seeing more and more of these types of builds of some of our favorite muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s.
