Default 1962 Mustang 1 concept mold/buck

After seeing some other bucks linked and sold here, maybe there's interest in this mold. Using the supposedly original mold to cast a positive to produce an alloy body for the spare Taunus V4 driveline you have sure would be cool.

Not my ad or any connection to seller. An email-only contact c/l ad, so may be legit or may be a scam....

Edit- here is prior ad from Milwaukee Craigslist from a couple wks ago, which corresponds to the shown map in Miami ad-

More on the Mustang 1 and the bodywork / fabrication for it here: Silodrome 1962 Ford Mustang Concept

The original molds were plaster based. I know this as one of the guys who did it mentioned it long ago and thus why I use Ultracal 60 gypsum for quickie molds myself even to this day for one-off projects. Someone later could have made better fiberglass molds after the car was forgotten in the backrooms at Ford possibly? Unfortunately my friend is long gone and I can't ask him.

It would be fun to see a recreation of this car today but with a true aluminum coachwork made bodywork for it. (versus fiberglass)

I wondered about the total lack of reinforcement on the c/l mold. Dad had a major fixation on the original Mustang and thought "we" (translation me...) should build one ever since I can remember. He mentioned an old promo film of the build & I expect this is what he had seen decades ago.

Watching the mold-development portion of the film multiple times, I can't tell if the plaster, mat and 2x4 mother will detach from the surface register mold. If so it could be the original surface mold & be missing the mother. It certainly is clean of plaster.... without the original mother, accurate casting use is tough.

But if it's legit, it still may provide good template info for making a station buck.
