The public’s earliest look at the Ford Mustang was in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. Demand for the car was overwhelming almost immediately. On April 17, 1964, the day the Mustang became available for purchase, about 22,000 were sold. Ford estimated first-year sales of the car would be 100,000. That number was reached in just four months. In 1965, over 680,000 Mustangs were produced, setting a record for first-year sales.
 
The first Mustangs manufactured are considered 19641/2 models. They were available only as a convertible or a coupe, and sold for around $2,300. In 1965, the “GT” and “fastback” models were produced. Options available on the 1965 Mustang were a 271-horsepower engine, 3-speed “Cruise-O-Matic” transmission, remote- control outside mirror, and red band sidewall tires.
 
Ford updated the Mustang every year. In 1966, the interior of the car could be designed in 34 different styles and colors. Consumers were able to create “the car of their dreams” from a Ford dealer’s order book.
 
The era of the classic Mustang came to an end in 1973. It was replaced by a smaller, lighter car with many cosmetic changes. After 35 years of continuous production, today the Ford Mustang is one of the most successful and long-lived of collectible automobiles.
