This Artist Built A Replica Of The 1967 Ford Mustang Entirely With Wire (PHOTOS) by AutoJoshNG: 1:39pm On Jun 12, 2019


The 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 was an automobile sensation. It still is.

The first Ford Mustang GT500 rolled off the production line 52 years ago.

This classic car has been recreated, but this time, it was built entirely with wires.

A South African-based wire artist from Lesotho, Conty Fonane, built the GT500 using wires.

To build the life-size car, Fonane spent seven months and R180,000 ($14,137) in a Johannesburg showroom to complete it.

The 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 – nicknamed “Eleanor”- was built almost entirely out of wire, including its engine and seats.

Fonane built his Mustang at the Creative Rides showroom floor in Bryanston, Johannesburg, South Africa.

According to him, he worked every day, Monday to Friday, for seven months on the car. He spent more than 1120 hours of labour and R180 000 of raw materials later before the car was complete.

The wire car, consisting of stainless steel wire, aluminum tubing, and a set of real rubber tyres, weighs a whopping 400kg and requires a trailer to be transported anywhere.

Conty Fonane love affair with Ford goes back to his childhood.
