10 Amazing Ford Mustang Junkyard Finds

The Ford Mustang has been in production since 1964. It is the longest running model name in the Ford lineup. These “pony” cars were designed to be sport coupes and convertibles, defined by their  “long hood, short deck” design. Theses ponies became larger and much heavier each model year in the the early 1970s, some weighing over 3000 pounds. There are many variations of the Stang in the 70’s, but this iconic car always maintains it’s mean muscular look. No matter what condition it is in…it is one tough lookin car. While these wheels are not in the prime any optimist can see the potential of what these Stallions were before they were Mustang Junkyard finds.


While these junkyard finds aren’t mine they are awesome none the less. Here are some of the most amazing Ford Mustang junkyard finds. May be you’ll get inspired and visit a Mustang junkyard near you.
