A Pre-Mustang Look into the Ford Styling Studio

Have you ever wondered what the Ford design studio was up to in the era that launched the Mustang?

Well, this film takes us to Ford, circa 1964, and introduces us to the people designing the cars of the (then) future. The narrator refers to them as "stylists," of course today we'd call them industrial designers.

It winds through a bit of history, and then reveals concept cars that presage features like memory-adjustable controls, and in-dash GPS. It culminates with the introduction of the Mustang, one Ford's greatest automotive hits. It offers an interesting look into the history of industrial design (and a fantastic jazz soundtrack to boot).
