1965 Ford Zebra Mustang by Barris

Third Floor - History

Noted Hollywood customizer George Barris restyled this Mustang for Nancy Sinatra to drive in the 1965 movie Marriage on the Rocks. To achieve the desired effect, Barris reworked the roof into an open-front targa style, reconfigured the grille assembly, and installed a television and cocktail accouterments. Unusual even for an extreme custom, the roof and exterior side panels were covered with faux zebra fur. The modifications were so extensive that the car is difficult to recognize as a Mustang.
