Check out the press release
George Barris built this
famous pair of Kustom Mustangs together with Sonny & Cher.
We certainly don't need
to tell you who Sonny & Cher are. George Barris and his brother Sam were
the most famous customizers back then. George had numerous other obligations
like writing for Hot Rod, being stunt coordinator, director, advisor and even
actor himself in movies. Thus he made a lot of contacts to potential customers.
Aside from this pair George built 6 special Pontiac station wagons for John
Wayne plus customized cars to Clint Eastwood, Glen Campbell, Liberace or Dean
However this Mustang pair got a lot of attention. An AMT scale model
customizing Car Kit was offered, where you could turn the body pieces and
acessories into "His" or "Hers" Mustang. AMT (owner
Bud "The Kat" Anderson) was another successfull cooperation of
the Barris adventure.
Mustang Illustrated famous author Bob McClurg visited Don Chanmbers in 98 and
did an interview with George Barris. The article appeared in MI September
The original pair of Mustangs looks exactly like the AMT scale models with
a different grille treatment next to the rectangular headlights.
But let's look through the eyes of Don and Ailene Chambers, long time Ford
Rarities collectors and Philippe Guattari, famous Mustang historian
of the Mustang Club de France and let's visit Don Chambers collection at
Don and Ailene as well as David Mattei are good friends of Philippe and gave permission to the appearance on
my little secret hidden Ponysite. Thanks to all of them.
