This is a prototype of a '67 mustang I'm working on....it's in the rough stage and on the back burner while I make some to sell but here it is in rough form....

Looks Good Muskokamike
Is it a three part body?  Looks like when you get it down, it should be a quick and easy build.
Thanks for sharing.

I like it - looks like you made your own wheels - I like those too.

yes it is, middle and two sides....that way you can get the hood a little higher than the fenders to make it more realistic.....sorry, I edited this.....it is actually 4 pieces. The middle is made up of two pieces, then the two sides. I don't have a band or scroll saw, only a jigsaw, and on thicker materials, the blade wanders around like a lost dog....

Cindy: those are just test wheels to determine stance etc. They are the correct diameter. I'm going to try and reproduce the actual wheels that can as original equipment on the '67.....

One thing about copying designs, cars are actually a WHOLE lot narrower than we see them as. When I said this was to scale, I kind of fibbed. I actually increased the width because made to size it looked way too skinny......and...odd (?). Those wheels are correct though except for the low profile design.....

Muskokamike - Mustangs, love them, owned many of them.
Can't wait to see the finished product, but don't wait to the end to show us.
We love to see projects in various build stages.

Will do, kind of on the backburner for the time being....in my typical fashion (i'm famous for this) I get the basics then instead of just tweaking and producing...I get caught up in:
add door handles, logo in the grille, scale headlights and tail lights, side door trim, then because it is in multiple pieces, should I do an interior? Where am I going to get scale leather/vinyl? How to produce a scale steering wheel.....should the glove box open?  where would I go to get the bumpers chromed? and how hot do you have to melt zinc to cast? and where do you buy ingots? .......ARRRGH  lol

Sounds like we have alot in common! Too many projects on the stove, so little time. I love the details on the mustang.
