Ford has released pictures of a one-off Mustang that was created for Edsel B. Ford II.

Built for his 16th birthday, the one-off model features a pearlescent white exterior with blue racing stripes, a functional hood scoop and fender-mounted rearview mirrors. The model was also equipped with chrome trim and a bespoke fuel filler cap with the initials “EBF II" on it. The car also had a bespoke cabin with blue leather and aluminum trim.

According to Edsel Ford, “The rumble of the high-performance 289-cubic-inch V8 was always intoxicating. I only drove it for a few minutes that first day because there was snow on the ground, but as soon as the roads were cleared, I drove it almost every day.”

Unfortunately, the one-off car was destroyed in an accident four years later when a friend borrowed it.
