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.
Ford brought the Mach 1 back for ’73 with nice styling upgrades, an array of new colors, and the retention of three V-8 engines: the 302-2V, the 351C-2V, and the 351C-4V Cobra Jet.
