The Ford Mustang II Prototype was a concept car built in 1963 by the Ford Motor Company.
This 1963 pre-production Mustang is basically the same car that would be introduced as the 1965 Mustang.
This particular car was altered and exhibited at a number of auto shows. It is a convertible equipped with removable fiberglass top, 289-cubic inch, high performance Cobra-modified engine and four-speed manual transmission.
The Mustang II Protype was the second X-Car and was also based upon the Falcon/Comet/Fairlane platform.
It was designed by Joe Oros.
Despite its name it carried few styling and design cues from the Mustang I.
The pearl white experimental car, first displayed at Watkins Glen in September 1963, played an important role in the public preception of the X-Cars.
It was presented to the auto enthusiast press as a direct precursor to the production Mustang that debuted in April of 1964.
