The Ford Mustang is an
automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. It was initially based
on the platform of the second generation North American Ford Falcon, a
compact car. Introduced early on April 17, 1964, and thus dubbed as a
"1964½" model by Mustang
fans, the 1965 Mustang was
the automaker's most successful launch since the Model A. The Mustang has undergone several
transformations to its current fifth generation.
The Ford Mustang (first
generation) created the "pony car" class of American automobiles—sports
car-like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks—and gave rise to
competitors such as the Chevrolet Camaro, and Pontiac Firebird,
AMC Javelin, as well as Chrysler's revamped Plymouth Barracuda and the
first generation Dodge Challenger. The Ford Mustang (first generation) is also
credited for inspiring the designs of coupés such as the Toyota Celica and
Ford Capri, which were imported to the United States.
The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by the Ford
Motor Company from 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Ford Mustang created a new class of
automobile known as the pony car. The Ford Mustang (first generation)'s styling,
with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a
host of imitators.
Ford Mustang (first
generation) was initially introduced as a hardtop and convertible with the
Ford Mustang (first
generation) fastback version put on sale the following year. At the time of
its introduction, the Ford Mustang (first generation), sharing
its underpinnings with the Falcon, was slotted into a compact car segment.
With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall
dimensions and in engine power. The 1971 model saw a drastic redesign to
its predecessors. After an initial surge, sales were steadily declining and
Ford began working on a new generation Mustang. With the onset of the 1973
oil crisis, Ford was prepared, having already designed the smaller Mustang II for the 1974 model year.
This new car had no common components with preceding models. Since it was
introduced five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year
and manufactured alongside 1964 Ford Falcons and 1964 Mercury Comets, the
earliest Mustangs are
widely referred to as the 1964½ model. A more accurate description is
the "early 1965" model because it underwent significant changes at the
beginning of the regular model year. All the early cars, however, were
marketed by Ford as 1965 models, Ford Mustang (first generation). The
low-end model Ford Mustang
(first generation) hardtop used a "U-code" 170 cu in (2.8 L) straight-6
engine with a three-speed manual transmission and Ford Mustang (first generation) retailed
for US$2,368. Ford Mustang
(first generation) Standard equipment for the early 1965 Mustangs included black front seat
belts, a glove box light, and a padded dash board. Ford Mustang (first generation) Production
began in March 1964 and official introduction following on April 17 at the
1964 World's Fair.
One option Ford Mustang
(first generation) designed strictly for fun was the Ford Mustang Rally-Pac. Introduced in 1963
after Ford's success at that year's Monte Carlo Rally and available on
other Ford and Mercury compacts and intermediates, the Rally-Pac was a
combination clock and tachometer mounted to the steering column. It was
available as a factory ordered item for US$69.30. Installed by a dealer,
the Ford Mustang Rally-Pac
cost US$75.95. Ford Mustang
Rally-Pac Reproductions are presently available from any number of Mustang restoration parts
sources. A compass, rear seat belts, A/C, and back-up lights were also
Ford Mustang (first
generation) optional. The Ford Mustang (first generation) standard
interior features of the 1965 Mustang included adjustable driver
and passenger bucket seats, an AM radio, and a floor mounted shifter in a
variety of color options. Ford Mustang (first generation), The
Interior Decor Group was popularly known as "Pony Interior" due to the
addition of embossed running ponies on the seat fronts, and also included
integral armrests, woodgrain appliqué accents, and a round gauge cluster
that would replace the standard Falcon instrumentation. Also available on
Ford Mustang (first
generation) options were sun visors, a (mechanical) remote-operated mirror,
a floor console, and a bench seat. Ford later offered an under-dash
air-conditioning unit, and discontinued the vinyl with cloth insert seat
option, offered only in early 1965 Ford Mustang (first generation).
