The Biodegradable 1969 Ford Mustang (Papercraft)

I have always been fascinated by papercraft. Over time, we’ve seen papercraft art that not’s only good to look at, but also functional, too (think papercraft Leica, people.) Here’s another one for the books, only this time, it’s for your eyes only.

Paper 1969 Ford Mustang

I say this 1969 Ford Mustang is biodegradable because it’s made entirely from paper. It was crafted and made into a reality by Jonathan Brand, who decided to work on the Mustang after restoring three vintage cars with his old man. Jonathan has printed out a 1:1 scale paper model of every component of the car, but actually has no plan to assemble the entire car.


With the help of 3D software, Jonathan flattened out all of the different parts of the car, printed them all out, and then folded and glued them together to come up with each specific component.

You can view Jonathan’s work, aptly called One Piece At A Time, at the Hosfelt Gallery from September 20 to October 29. Bring your papercraft Leica to take photos of this cool set of paper wheels.
