Notice the small Mustang emblem in place on the grille on this car, almost the only vestige of the Mustang's original ornamentation. This car is a rare '65 R-model, and the special front valance panel furnished on these cars eliminated the front bumper altogether and allowed more air to reach the radiator for better engine cooling. Notice also the engine oil cooler visible behind the lower grille opening. The small ports on each side of the radiator opening are for air-intake ducting to cool the front brakes. Another thing that's noticeable in this photo is the change in camber due to the upper-control-arm relocation. At rest, the tire appears to ride on the inside edge. Loaded with the driver and cornering at speed, the camber angle would then improve and move closer to vertical, thus enhancing the tire contact patch with the road.
