History of the Ford Mustang

When the Ford Mustang first appeared not even the engineers at Ford knew that it would still be an industry leader fifty years later.15MUST.GT.shot_14 Many concept cars never leave the design studio or, if they do get out, they must still get past the critics of the annual auto show circuits.  However, the Ford Mustang has proven itself repeatedly. It’s been over fifty years since the Mustang 1 debuted as a two seat, mid-engine sports car at the world’s fair in 1964 in Flushing Meadows, New York.
