Most car enthusiasts can give you a rundown of Ford Mustang’s lengthy and famous history. That just goes to show how prominent Mustang has been in the world since its release in 1964. 

The concept for Mustang’s unique look was backed by the idea that boomers in the 60s would want cars that differed from those of their parents. What made the Mustang stick out when compared to other vehicles was how sleek the design was. 

Ford was shocked at how high the demand was for its new car during the year 1965. While Ford was experiencing success with its new car, the company faced competition from rival Chevy’s Corvette. 

Carroll Shelby 

Carroll Shelby was recruited during the mid-1960s to modify Mustang into a car that could compete with the Corvette.

To make room for new modifications, Shelby tossed Mustang’s rear seats aside and added in the following elements: 

  • Oversize front disc brakes
  • Fiberglass hood
  • Lowered suspension
  • Oversized tires on 15-inch wheels 

Manufactured through 1970, Shelby Mustang’s are considered some of the most desired Mustang’s on the market today. 

One interesting observation about Ford mustangs is that it began in the mainstream and remain mainstream. 

Second and Third Generation Mustangs

Second generation Mustang’s had to keep up with the rising competition. 

Their response: 

A better car.

Second generation Mustangs had easier to read instrumentation, more extensive engines, and more stability. 

While the third-generation Mustang featured the same 108-inch wheelbase as previous models, the car grew in overall size. A range of powertrain options became while higher horsepower came into play. 

Consumers seeking a luxury Mustang model were able to purchase the ‘69 Grande model while the Mach 1 and Boss models were released for racing. 

It’s impressive to think that Mustang is currently on its ninth generation of models that have been in production since 2005. Early success and collaboration with influential figures such as Carroll Shelby have propelled the Mustang into mainstream success.
