1965 Ford Mustang!; Some argue that a collectible car must have been built in fairly small numbers to make it exclusive, nd thus more desirable and valuable. So how do they explain why the 1965 Ford Mustang is such a popular collectible? After all, t attracted a staggering 680,989 buyers after its early public introduction at the New York World's Fair in April, 964. The 1965 Mustang set an all-time record for first-year sales of any new model.
Today's auto market is too fragmented with different types of cars for a single model to ever get the wildly enthusiastic reception of the first Ford Mustang in America. The top-selling car in 2008 was the Toyota Camry, hich found 436,616 buyers.Ever since its arrival, he Mustang has been a highly visible part of the American auto scene. Owners have included everyone from former President Bill Clinton and baseball star Reggie Jackson to Hollywood celebrities Jay Leno and Cher.
Most likely, ou've either owned a Mustang, r knew someone who did.Americans had few foreign models from which to choose in the 1960s, o domestic autos ruled the market.
Lee Iacocca, ho was the young, avvy head of Ford Motor's Ford division, elt that a sporty, nexpensive model would be hot because it would be youth-oriented and World War II baby boomers were getting their first driver's licenses. Also, he 15-29 age group was expected to grow by almost a whopping 40 percent between 1960 and 1970. Young drivers had been snapping up sporty bucket-seat versions of Chevrolet's Corvair with its European-style rear-engine design. Iacocca felt that Ford--Chevrolet's main rival--could beat the Corvair with a conventional front-engine sporty car, hich would be more easily understood by most Americans.The Mustang had the long-hood/short-rear-end design of post-World War II sports cars and initially was sold as a coupe and convertible and as a semi-fastback model with a fold-down rear seatback, dded in September, 964. The first Mustang prototype was a small, ow, lick mid-engine fiberglass body two-seater powered by a European Ford V-4 engine with 90 horsepower. Iacocca took one look at it and said it wasn't what Ford wanted to make because it was too "far out" to be a volume model. Additional prototypes were made, ulminating in the larger four-seat, ront-engine Mustang. "Now, hat's what we want," Iacocca said with a grin.Iacocca then shifted Ford Motor's high-powered publicity and advertising machines into high gear. The automaker had a sneak photo of the Mustang taken March 11, 964, nd the picture was used by major publications. About 100 reporters got Mustangs for test drives near the car's introduction date in hopes of getting good reviews. There was no internet or cable television, o time was bought on the three television networks on the night of April 16 to showcase the car for nearly 30 million viewers. And more than 2,500 major newspapers contained announcements and reviews on April 17. The Mustang made such a splash that Iacocca was pictured with the car on the cover of Time and Newsweek magazine.
