Ford Motor Company wowed the crowds on the 1970 auto show circuit with this far-out Mustang hatchback concept. First displayed at the Chicago Auto Show in February 1970 at the International Amphitheatre, the Mustang Milano was one of a fleet of five Fords specially customized for the car show circuit that year. And while it never reached production, the Milano did foreshadow some significant future Mustang features—including the hatchback roof. Based on a production 1970 Mustang body shell but with radically different lines, the Milano was just 43 inches tall, seven inches lower than a standard showroom Sportsroof. The low roofline and radically laid-back windshield—67 degrees—created an almost bullet-like overall silhouette. Ford press releases called the flamboyant paint color “Ultra Violet,” setting it off with a leather interior with high-back bucket seats in bold lavender and contrasting rainbow stripes. A set of matching luggage, also in lavender leather, stowed in the rear compartment.
