This early Ford Mustang might not look very important from the outside, but it's actually one of the most special and unique examples in existence. Once owned by Henry Ford II himself, it' a 1963 prototype model with a handful of unique design features and parts that's managed to survive the crusher, carrying a ton of history with it.

Hagerty's Tom Cotter went to Detroit to this Mustang and its current owner, Art Cairo, to see exactly how Ford II's Mustang differentiates itself from every other early Mustang on the road. From a distance you wouldn't be able to tell what's been changed from prototype to production model. It's only when you get up close that you can see all of the stand-out mods.
