To this day, the shape of the classic Mustang remains iconic and will probably be forever. In fact, the classic Mustangs are one of the most sought after collectible cars in the world. The first generation Mustang started out as a dream by Lee Iacocca (vice president and general manager of the Ford Motor Company at the time). He envisioned of creating a sporty youth-market car based on the compact Falcon. The first Mustang was introduced at the World’s Fair on April 17, 1964 and easily became a hit. Ford initially planned to sell 100,000 during its first production year, but over 22,000 Mustangs were sold on the first day. If any, the unprecedented success of the Mustang launched a new genre of automobiles, which we now call as “pony cars”.
