Photos: 2011 Ford Mustang GT “Reversion” Concept At SEMA

Posted by on November 10, 2011 - one

This was one head-turning red ‘Stang that popped out with the contrasting black and white floor setup of Dynatech’s SEMA booth. That’s not all. Once that flat red caught your attention, it was hard to turn away. Was it a classic with modern features or a modern Mustang with classic features? As it turns out, it’s a 2011 Ford Mustang GT concept car called “Reversion”. If you can’t choose between that modern muscle or that old classic feel, the best of both worlds in never impossible!

The builder and owner of this awesome ride is John H. Heermann, Johnny Sparks LLC from Haxtun, Colorado. Design and build credit go to Doug Kielian from Auto Kraft Body & Paint from Lincoln, Nebraska.
