MUSTANG-The Name Says It All(Vishal Bawa) MCAJ(MassCoMedia Student)

In 1967 the first big-block Mustang was introduced, the S-code 390 which was rated at 320 hp. This Mustang was not able to compete with the hot new SS 396 Camaro , so in 1968 the 428 Cobra Jet engine was introduced, giving the Mustang true muscle car status. The Ford Mustang has past a major milestone of fourty years! April 17, 1964 is when the first classic 1964 1/2 came out into the public and heads have been turning since. Check out a chronology of events.
The Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964. The car was an instant success that set a new record for first year sales. One story describes how a truck driver drove right through a showroom window, staring and enchanted by the car.

The car was the brainchild of Lee Iaococca, who envisioned an inexpensive, sporty car for the masses. On April seventeenth, 1964 Ford unveiled the Mustang Convertible at the New York Worlds Fair. These cars and others with early production features are often referred to as 1964 1/2 model year. The car was also offered as a hardtop coupe, the fastback was available to the public five months later.
