The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. It was initially introduced as a hardtop & convertible with the fastback version put on sale in August 1964. At the time of its introduction, the Mustang, shared its underpinnings with the Falcon & was slotted into a compact car segment.
Lee Iacocca's assistant general manager & chief engineer, Donald N. Frey, was the head engineer for the Mustang project. He supervised the development of the Mustang in a record 18 months, from September 1962 to March 1964, while Iacocca himself, championed the project as Ford Division general manager.
Drawing on inspiration from the mid-engined Ford Mustang I concept vehicle, Lee Iacocca ordered development of a new "small car" to Eugene Bordinat, vice-president of design at Ford.
The design teams was given 5 goals for the design of the Mustang: Seat four w/bucket seats, have a floor mounted shifter, weigh no more than 2,500 lbs, have a max length of 180" & sell for less than $2,500 w/multiple power, comfort & luxury options.
Introduced 4 months before the normal start of the 1965 production year & manufactured alongside 1964 Ford Falcons & Mercury Comets, the earliest Mustangs are widely referred to as the 1964½ models. Nevertheless, all "1964½" cars were given 1965 U.S. standard VINs with limited exception to the earliest of promotional materials & were marketed by Ford as 1965 models.
Standard equipment for the early 1965 Mustangs included: black front seat belts, glove box light, & padded dash. Production began in March 1964 with official introduction on April 17 at the 1964 World's Fair.
The 1966 Mustang debuted with moderate trim changes including: new grille, side ornamentation, wheel covers & gas cap. Ford's new C-4, "cruise-o-matic", three-speed auto transmission became available as an option for the 225 hp V8.
The 1966 Mustangs are differentiated by variations in the exterior, despite similar design. These variations include emblems on the quarter-panels behind the doors. All 1966 models had emblems smaller in height w/three horizontal bars extending from the design resembling an "E". Also changed were the front intake grilles & ornaments. The 1966 version was a "slotted" style & used the "Horse and Corral" emblem on the grille with the bars removed.
