This 1969 Ford Mustang Started Life as a Hyundai Accent

Lusting after a 1969 Ford Mustang, but can’t afford one? Dream Customs India has got your back with this Hyundai Accent conversion

Yes, this is a 1969 Mustang, but only from a distance. It's actually a 2009 Hyundai Accent with a plastic surgeory done by Dreams Customs India

As expected, many things give it away, such as the absurd front overhang, overall fit and finish, and funny stance

Strangely enough, the back end looks quite convincing, apart from the trunk lid handle position

Inside, the first thing you notice is the steering wheel position. Classic Mustangs were left-hand-drive-only. This changed in 2015

Actually, they've mimicked the "double hoop" dashboard design quite well. However, the cheap Hyundai Accent center console ruins it

The two-tone leather interior looks weathered. We're not sure whether it's intentional or if they've simply used an old one

Oh, I'm sorry, were you expecting a V-8? The replica still uses the Hyundai Accent asthmatic four-banger

They've at least made an effort to modify the sound appropriately. It vaguely resembles a V-8, but there's no fooling anyone

On the upside, if you see it from a far, you'll wonder how some rich Indian YouTuber has managed to import a 1969 Mustang to India
