The history of the Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang was first seen in 1962 as a 2 seater concept car and has since had 6 evolutions and is still currently on sale in 2017. In 1963 the 2nd generation concept car appeared as a four-seater to see how well it would fair in the market against the likes of the Plymouth Barracuda.

The Ford Mustang was developed over an incredible 18 months and smashed early predicted sales estimates. It shared many components from existing Ford models like the Ford Falcon and Ford Fairlane.

As the years progressed changes naturally occured as the car market evoloved, sadly for the Mustang this meant bigger and heavier without matching performance improvements.
