2011/1971-3 neo-retro Mustang photoshop

Hello - first post here; rather an impulse.

This evening - on a whim - I modified a photo of a base GT to represent a design reminiscent of the '71-73 bodystyle.

I figured I'd share it here, as the proportions turned out better than I had expected:



Enjoy. I'd be rather curious to hear what you think of the results, style-wise.

Take care,

-Kurt

The 71-73 body style is by far my most favorite of teh original generation Mustang. I have owned 4 of them over the last 20 years. You did a graet job and it looks great. With some Mach1 side stripes, and magnum 500 style wheels that car would look bad to A$$.

Styling is very nice. I'm a little concerned about the increased blind-spot, however. And the b-pillar isn't big enough for a production car. (You missed the passenger side b-pillar too.)

Photoshop work is excellent.

One-hundred percent agreed in regards to the Magnum 500's. With all due respect to them, I can't stand the rampant trend of low-profile wheels and tires. The car that I photoshopped this off of had these:



Thanks, but no thanks. There is something about that design that makes my skin crawl.

On a fun note, there is a Ford Ranger pool truck that shows up in the neighborhood now and then - and its running around on wheels that look like Magnum 500's, or are Magnum 500's. Either way, I can't help but smile every time I see it; even though the Ranger itself isn't much to look at.

To tell you the truth, I wish it was. I must confess that I like the results of the photoshop better than the original.

If this design ever did make it to production, it'd probably end up with the same quarter window interior treatment as the Dodge Challenger. Thick and bulky.

I'm not sure that the visibility would be any better or worse than the Dodge product though. Though the B pillars would be larger, the window's additional size might improve rearward visibility. Not by much, but if Dodge gets away with it in the present day, it shouldn't be out of the question for Ford to do roughly the same.

Paint Shop Pro 7, to be exact, though "Photoshopping" has become the generic term.

I like the roof line alot, especially the Hatchback look. I can't stand the Gold color though, but everything else is GREAT!

Very nice work, but not for me. The 69/70 has always been my favorite, and the 2010 follows it more for me. But remember, styling is subjective, to each his own. Once again, very nice work!

I'm rather partial to the gold myself, though I'm biased to H.B. Halacki's Gone in 60 Seconds Eleanor.

Nevertheless, flavors abound (threw these together - excuse the off hues on some of the features):

Indeed, this era is the Renaissance for the early fastbacks - though it would be nice to see a few different rooflines available. The existing design seems to be paying off quite well for Ford though - I dare say it is unlikely to expect any other era tributes to show up.
