This is a draft for what we hope will be a very memorable entry into the #INAMUSTANG challenge — where-in the best ideas will be made into short films.

For me, the prize might even be a media invite to some upcoming Mustang events. April 17th is the big anniversary of the original launch at the 1964 New York Auto Show, so things are likely pretty near on the horizon.

Ideally, these ideas would utilize a 2015 Mustang as the basis instead of the NeedForSpeed car shown here.

The inspiration, of course, is Charlie Webb’s $984,000 1965 Mustang GT350R.

Even with the 2014 concept as the basis — the results are pretty darn striking, if I do say so myself…

UPDATE! Since starting this article hours ago, we are basically finished creating the Car-Revs-Daily.com exclusive NeedForSpeed 2014 MUSTANG GT350R.

The results are broken into three groups:

— NeedForSpeed — Group

Sharp-eyed viewers may note: the lights. We did our magic pretty extensively to have LED and HID light action in every scenario. Not easy to do, nor explain. But draft-a-palooza below for the curious!

Cannot resist sharing it here and in the now.

Drafts everywhere, and too tired to determine which is worth including…
