This is an original 1967 Mustang Junior built by the Powercar Company of Mystic CT back in 67. These were available in electric or gas powered versions to use for promotional purposes by Ford dealers and other companies. The are very rare original factory authorized promotional pieces and command high prices if you can find one, and the gas powered models get premium prices. The guy driving it is 6 foot 4 inches tall and his legs operate the gas and brake pedals that are located directly behind the grille. They have working headlights taillights and even brake lights along with a working horn. Mustangs were made from 1965-1967 but they also made Thunderbirds from 1955-66 and even miniature Mercury and Plymouth models. They would be considered a Go Kart by today's standards but were never intended for speed! they were used to get customers into dealerships so they could sell mom and dad a new car while the kids checked out the miniature version. Go to http://www.jrcentral.com for more information on powered promotional cars.
