Jack Florence from Fostoria Styling and Warren Veurink from Holland
Auto Trim (upholsterer supreme) created this unique custom Mustang back in
1965 for Gerald Taggart based on a brandnew Mustang. Shown at the Cobo Hall,
it caught the interest of Ford representatives and subsequently whisked
from its appointed display position and made a part of Ford's impressive
Custom Car Caravan display.
The Mustang Pegasus - a long time mystery -
found and finally subject to a complete restoration in the near future (started 2005, sent to bodyshop in Nov. 2005, plug pulled 2006, now finally restoration will be done together with its genuine creators in 2007 - update received in June 2014)
Thanks to owner Ramon, we got some exclusive pictures of the former Ford Custom Car Caravan Mustang in its condition as he found it.
These pics have never been published elsewhere and are only shared with Mark Gustavson from the "Lynx Project".
The car's restoration was started in early 2005, the body has been shipped in November for a correct reconditioning. Due to a sponsoring problem the car had to be pulled from the body shop.
In 2007 Ramon got in touch with Warren Veurink and Gerald Taggart as well as in March 2007 with Jack Florence, now being in his 80ies. All of them have promised to get together to help Ramon in his efforts and all of them want to see the car back on the show floor soon.
The project turned out to take much longer than expected. As of June 2014, the interior is basically done and the body ready for new paint.
We hope to be able to add pictures this summer.
Meanwhile we got a new never published color picture (below) from Scott Veurink, the son of Warren Veurink. Thanks for that.
