The article focuses on how Howard Astill of New South Wales built his 1966 Ford Mustang into a show car. The car was not in a good condition when he got it but the six-cylinder engine worked. The body was folded up to get the radius on it. Other works include the flat firewall, the de-seamed rear quarters, recessed front indicators and reshaped rear valence.
