1967 Ford Bearcat Project Front End #1

Result inc Premium: £546

The Ford Bearcat was a concept vehicle developed by Ford during the 1960s. It was a two-seat sports car concept that showcased innovative design elements and featured a fibreglass body. The Bearcat concept was unveiled at various auto shows in the mid-1960s but was never produced as a road-going vehicle. The concept aimed to explore new design directions and demonstrate Ford's engineering capabilities and vision for future vehicles. McNea’s renderings of the Bearcat’s various front-end designs evoke a feeling of what a classic mid-engine sports car is all about and share all the hallmarks of an Italian Super-Car. However, the Bearcat had the potential to be a classic, one which might have graced our auction room floor had Ford decided to go ahead with production. Sadly we’ll never know.
