1965 Ford Mustang Shooting Brake Replica Up For Sale
Back in 1965, J. Walter Thompson advertising executive Barney Clark along with a designer by the name of Bob Cumberford commissioned Intermeccanica, an Italian coachbuilding company, to create a one-off shooting brake variant of the Ford Mustang. In October the following year, the car appeared in an issue of Car and Driver.
The one you see in these photos is not that car, but it is an excellent replica created by an individual called Joe Kamp. It is based on the Ford Mustang hardtop from ’65 and the builder cut, widened and lengthened the roof in order to create the shooting brake rear end. The C-pillars, rear window and the tailgate have been made by using parts of the original hardtop as Kamp wanted to maintain the look of the car as close to the original as possible.
He kept the same front and rear bumpers, the rear quarter windows, alloy wheels and the taillights. In addition, this replica also has the same Ford EEC-IV engine management system and the AM radio. He installed a Shelby-style grille, a fiberglass hood that has a built-in scoop, along with this nice red exterior paint that has gold stripes.
Other than that, the vehicle benefits from custom control arms, new shocks, power disc brakes and a reinforced chassis. The Ford Mustang Shooting Brake replica is motivated by a V8 5.0-liter Ford engine which is mated to a TG 5-speed manual gearbox with a heavy duty clutch and a Hurst shifter.
As far as the interior cabin is concerned, the replica comes with a custom center console, air conditioning, a front bench seat which has been fashioned out of the original buckets, plus white door panels, brown carpets and vinyl.
The odometer of the car reads 93,965 miles (151,222 km) and the asking price for this one-off Mustang is $64,900 (48,325 Euros). The car is already for sale in Charlotte, North Carolina at RK Motors.
