Interesting pony car still needing some attention
The original Pony Car – a legend takes its course
Who knew how big a gap in the market Ford had found with this car? Customers spending the night in front of the stores just to get hold of one of the coveted models… 680,000 units sold within two years… America was topsy-turvy, because Ford’s concept of “great performance at a fair price” was a complete success.
The Mustang was a trendsetter – the “Pony Cars” were not named after it for nothing. Typical characteristics of the genre are the elongated hood, a comparatively short rear, enough space for 4 people – but above all, engines with more power than the chassis or braking system could tame … Already with the Mustang of the first series this could be up to 400 HP from scarcely 7 liters of displacement.
“The American Way of Drive” in absolute pure culture, unadulterated and undiluted.
