A fortunate Mustang Club tours the private museum of Mustang styling chief, 1964-73, Gale Halderman

It’s was Halderman’s sketch that formed the basis for the Mustang’s overall design, and he later was given the role of skillfully guiding the Mustang from clay-model dream to a realistic, fully producible car.

Halderman later received the Industrial Design Society’s Design Award for his work on the 1965 Mustang, and served as styling chief for the Mustang for eight more years. Mustang design advances under his leadership are said to include the ’67 SportsRoof and the ’71 Notchback and full Fastback designs.
