The origins of the original 1964 1/2, 101 horsepower Mustang was the humble Ford Falcon. Officially, the car was released in April 1964 and called a 1965 model.
The 1967 and 1968 Ford Mustang, considered by many people as best Mustang pre 2000 series, was also the last "small Mustang", until the introduction of the disappointing Mustang II. 1968 1967 1967
1969 1970 Ford aptly described this series as "A steed for every need" and this was an accurate description for this new "mini Thunderbird Mustang" model which was nearly six inches larger than the original.
The 1971 series Mustang was the largest and heaviest Mustang ever produced. They were 14" longer and nearly 800 pounds heavier than the original Mustang. 1971 1973
1974 1977 Many collectors consider the Mustang II the worst Mustang ever made, but the reality is that this car became one of Ford's most important models during a very difficult time.
Some people might argue that the 1979 to 1993 Mustang was essentially the same car. 1979 1981
The 1982 to 1986 Mustang was very similar to the 1979 design but this series reintroduced the Mustang convertible which was released in 1982 as either a late 1982 or early 1983 model. 1983 1984 1985
One of the things that made Mustang such a successful car for Ford Motor Co. was the fact that the car could be so many things to so many people. 1989 1993
1995 Computer aided design played a bigger role in the engineering of this Mustang than ever before. Today, in six hours one engineer can do more structural testing and design then a team of 10 engineers taking two weeks would have done back in 1964.
