who wonders how the Ford Mustang has changed over its 50-year lifespan now has the answer.
A side-by-side display has been created by Ford for display at the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum in Virginia, marrying the left-hand side of a ’65 Stang with the right-hand side of the latest 2015 model.
The Siamese twins show how the car has grown in every direction, mostly as a response to customer demands for more comfort and equipment, along with legislative demands for improved safety.
The cars, a white convertible from the sixties and the newcomer with red bodywork, were each split down the middle before being joined.
The split-personality display includes working compartments in each car, so museum visitors can compare things like the AM radio and wind-up windows in the original ‘Stang with the airbags and high-techn infotainment system required a half-century later.
