Ever Dream of Driving a 1966 Ford Mustang Limousine? Yep – It Exists

Most rides that get turned into limousines are ones with designs that already lend themselves to that stately limo look. Think Lincoln Town Cars, Cadillacs, Mercedes Benzes, etc. Every now and then, someone gets an out-of-the-box creative urge to do something a bit different – Ergo stretch limousine versions of Hummers, Volkswagen Beetles and semi truck cabs.
