Introduction to the Ford Mustang
The original Mustang design was created by Ford’s chief stylist Joseph Oros and when the finished car was introduced to the market in April 1964 it caused even more interest and excitement amongst the American motoring fraternity than its predecessor the Thunderbird.
With its racy and definitely masculine appearance, the low price tag and not least the excellent choice of name, the Mustang was a phenomenal success. In fact, by 1966, the sales figures were nearing the two million figure.
When first introduced, the Mustang was available with an option of four engine capacities. For the owner with good gas mileage uppermost in mind. Ford offered the 170 cu in or 200 cu in six-cylinder engines, while the 260 cu in and 289 cu in V8 engines were available to the customer whose prime consideration was acceleration. For those who required even more power beneath the hood, a tuned version of the 289 cu in engine was obtainable which developed 271 brake horsepower at 6000 rpm.
Beneath the attractive bodyshell the mechanical layout of the Mustang was quite conventional, comprising a front-mounted engine driving the rear wheels via the transmission unit, driveshaft and differential unit. A choice of either three- or four-speed manual transmission, or three-speed automatic transmission was offered. Front suspension on all models is the independent coil spring and wishbone type, while the rear axle is located on leaf springs. Telescopic shock absorbers are fitted all round.
For 1967 / 1968 the larger capacity 302 and 390 V8 engines became optional and these were followed by the powerful 427, 428 and Boss 429 engines. Inevitably, as engines got larger, so the body size increased until it could no longer be described as a compact sports car. Because it had lost the original Mustang individuality, sales inevitable dropped and in 1974 Ford launched the Mustang Series II.
