Overview
Ford Mustang

On April 17, 1964, New York World's Fair visitors were the first to glimpse a vehicle that would become a cultural icon. The first Ford Mustang would go on to reach its yearly sales target in just three months' time, reaching a production milestone of one million units less than two years later. In 50 full years of production, the Ford Mustang seemed to sync with the decades as they passed, ultimately growing into a globally sold flagship built to compete with the world's best.

Borrowed parts and fast development were the staples of the first Mustang program, which mandated a four-seat sports car weighing under 2500 pounds and retailing for less than $2500. Early examples of the car -- produced in 1964, formally sold as 1965 models, but referred to by enthusiasts as "1964 1/2" models -- were equipped with a 2.8-liter inline six-cylinder engine that did not hint at the tire-smoking V8 reputation that would come in time. Late 1965 models did not host the quirks of their predecessors: alternators rather than generators, no hidden "Ford Falcon" script underneath the steering wheel tirm ring, a new inline-six and a range of available V8 engines marked the Mustang's maturation. The Mustang GT debuted this year, formally pairing a V8 engine with additional comfort and convenience features. Texas-based racer Carroll Shelby turned his attention to the car, setting in motion a series of racecars and street-going sports cars that would become significant points in American automotive history.
