Who would have guessed how big the market gap really was, before Ford bridged it with this car? Customers camping outside the shops in order to grab one of the desired models … 680,000 units sold within two years … America was upside down, because Ford’s concept of “full performance at a fair price” had come to full fruition.
The Mustang was a trendsetter – so much so, the whole species of “Pony Cars” were named after it. Their typical features are the elongated hood, a relatively short tail, enough space for 4 people – but first and foremost, engines with more power than the running gear and braking system could handle … Even the first generation Mustangs came with up to 400 hp from just under 7 litres of engine capacity.
The essence of “the American Way of Drive” , unadulterated and undiluted.
