For those not familiar with Mustang history, the model was introduced at the New York World’s Fair in April 1964. Over 20,000 cars were sold in the first week of public release.
It’s interesting to note that while Ford chose the name “Mustang” to reflect the spirited image of the P-51 US World War 2 fighter plane named the Mustang, the public immediately associated the car with the untamed wild horse of the American West. Ford quickly adopted the image of a wild galloping horse as the badging symbol of this now classic car.
1965 saw the introduction of the sporty 2+2 model and through an arrangement with FOMOCO, Carrol Shellby began de production of the now famous Mustang Cobras. Whit a sportier uned suspension and hi performance 289 engines.
