Classic Car- 1965 Ford Mustang

eBay

Maybe you were at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. While you were enjoying some delicious cotton candy and corn dogs you looked over your shoulder and saw this magnificent beauty in the distance. We are talking about the 1965 Ford Mustand, today’s Classic Car.

Have you ever wondered how Ford came up with the name for the stangs?

Executive stylist John Najjar, who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane, is credited by Ford to have suggested the name. He was involved in design work on the prototype Ford Mustang I. An alternative view was that Robert J. Eggert, Ford Division market research manager, first suggested the Mustang name. Eggert, a breeder of quarterhorses, received a birthday present from his wife of the book, The Mustangs by J. Frank Dobie in 1960. Later, the book’s title gave him the idea of adding the “Mustang” name for Ford’s new concept car.

Although some other pony cars have seen a revival, the Mustang is the only original pony car to remain in uninterrupted production over five decades of development and revision.
