    Re: Worlds First Mustang Replica

    Very interesting, however it raises a few questions: 1.how much did it cost to use Ford, Mustang names and logos, Kit replica cars that use original donor car parts with don't have to pay any license fees. Building from scratch using new materials is a different. several years ago you could and still can purchase remanufactured parts (Mustangs in particular) to build a totally new 1964-66 Mustang clone. In California, however without a vin # you can only register it as home built kit clone car and the CA DMV will issue you a Clone VIN #, with no reference to it being a Ford Mustang replica. I sure every state DMV have procedures for registering Home built Clones, Brand new manufactured Replica cars as a commercial enterprise. 2. Is there a demand for such a Replica, how much is anyone willing to pay for an improved replica and how many cars do you have to build to have a profit margin.I know there is a market for one off custom builds, that's not the same as a brand new replica of a very famous American icon as a 64-66 Mustang with the latest advancements.

    All that being said I like the idea of building brand new versions of the most popular iconic cars. Nissan tried to do that back in 1995 (not sure of actual year) by restoring a 1972 Datsun 240Z car and then building 100 brand new copies to sell as a specials just before introducing the Nissan Z350. It failed, for what ever reason the project was scrapped. Just think what if Mazda made 100 brand new 1990 Miata NA as their 2015 25 years Anniversary model instead of the 100 2015 NC.

    What favorite car from your past would you consider purchasing as a brand new version?

    Would take any Chevy 409 also:
