Whether we like it or not, we may have to get used to the Mustang nameplate being used to describe a variety of body shapes. If the Mustang Mach E is anything to go by, there’s a good chance these new creations will share nothing more than a passing resemblance to the core Mustang product.
But what if Ford had gone a different way? What if they had decided to create a line of off-roaders that directly resembled the Mustang’s aggressive front end. Well, thanks to what we can only assume is some kind of impassioned Frenchman, we can wonder no more.
Behold, the amalgamation of a Mustang and an F-150 pick-up. As far as nose-swaps go, it’s not the worst thing we’ve come across, even if it does manage to hurt our brains just a little. If anyone’s seen the somewhat disappointing 2008 reboot of Knight Rider, where K.I.T.T morphed from a Mustang into an F-150, among other Fords, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s some kind of concept from the show.
The F-150, which is very much still a pick-up underneath, complete with 5.4-liter Triton engine, seems to have had a nose-cut off of a fifth-generation Shelby Mustang grafted on to it. The grille, hood, and fenders seem to line-up surprisingly well, although things get a little ropey around the front bumper, which appears to have had its chin extended in an attempt to match the rest of the F-150’s dimensions.
The truck was offered for sale on the French trading site Leboncoin. Perhaps more remarkable than the creation itself is the fact that it’s now listed as sold. Offered initially at €28,500, the seller was also open to trades.
But we want to know what you think: should this Mustang-ified pick-up be allowed to terrorize the French countryside? Should it be killed with fire? Let us know in the comments below.
