For all of us that met Gale, it was a great honor. These are all great Christmas ideas. MJB
The Mustang Club of Ohio wants to make other Mustang Clubs aware of the efforts to keep the Halderman Barn Museum open to the Mustang Community and various car clubs. As such, we are sending this information to other Mustang Clubs, and we ask that you pass this information along to your club members.
Ford Designer Gale Halderman created the design chosen for the original Ford Mustang, he guided the clay model team to the final full clay design and he oversaw the design elements of the original Ford Mustang to factory production. Gale retired from Ford after forty years, and he then converted the barn on his family farm in Tipp City, Ohio into the Halderman Barn Museum. Gale’s personal files and records are on display in his museum in addition to items contributed by others. Gale opened the museum to the Mustang Community as well as other car clubs without charging an admission to see the museum. Gale financed the cost of operating the museum out of his own pocket. Unfortunately, we lost Gale on April 29, 2020. Gale’s daughter, Karen Koenig, has the goal of keeping the Halderman Barn Museum open to the Mustang Community and car clubs without charging an admission fee. She hopes to be able to defer the cost of operating the Halderman Barn Museum by selling souvenir items and through contributions that are made to the museum. The Halderman Barn Museum currently has the following items for sell which will make great Christmas gifts for the home or garage:
Halderman Museum Banner (36’ x 12”) in Blue,Red,and Black - $20 Mustang Concept Banner (36” x 12”) in white - $20.00 Book “Mustang by Design” - $40.00 Halderman Museum hats in blue, green, red and black - $25.00 Mustang Concept photo - $10.00 Gale Halderman signature decals - $ 5.00
Shipping costs are in addition to the above quoted prices.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the above items will be used to defray the costs of keeping the Halderman Barn Museum open to Mustang Enthusiasts and car clubs.
