Mustang wagons have long been part of ponycar folklore. Some customs exist, but a factory-built first-generation Mustang shooting brake still appears to be mythology. Our friends at Hemmings have turned up some very nicely done cars that individuals have put together, a particularly fetching blue one has a very well thought out roofline and rear hatch. This whole bit of nonsense may have its genesis in a one-off wagon that Intermeccanica built for Barney Clarke and Robert Cumberford back in the '60s. It seems that you can do a lot with an early 'Stang and a Sawz-all if you're determined, and wagons are just the start of it.

      Leave it dead and buried.

      I like it. A Mustang wagon makes more sense than a "sports" SUV like a Porsche Cayenne.

      Honestly? I like it.
      Given the necessary shift away from SUVs, I think it could forge a name for itself. Maybe as a low-volume niche vehicle? Introduce it today as it's own model (not a Mustang though... that would be bad), with the long hood good looks of the sixties and I'd buy it.

      It'd have to be RWD though. With the Ecoboost six. Then you could give Lincoln a version with which to compete with the Caddy wagon. That would be a sweet ride.

      Meh.. I'll pass.. a 2-door wagon doesn't seem practical, much like the 90's 2-door Chevy Blazer..

      The coupes with the opera window....Being "old" myself (61) I do recall in 1966 FORD DEALERS in the NY / NJ area running a large dealer co-op adv. in Sunday paper with a drawing of a picture of base model 2-doors (side view) with wire wheels discs, W.W. tires, optional chrome rocker panels, and the opera windoes with a thin chome moulding encircling the window, like an "O". It also came with a vinyl top included. It was a co-op dealer special edition. I do not think it was factory. I think the wire wheels, WW tires, chrome rocker panels were factory ordered and a body shop installed the opera window & chrome trim, out sourced elsewhere. There were many of them, as about 10 dealers were "in" on the deal, as listed where to find them, at the bottom of the really large (1/2 page) advertisment. Each dealer had about 4-5 of them on the property. I saw NON in metallic colors! 99% were bright red, white, black or yellow. All had black vinyl tops.
