This Day in History
On this day in 1964, the Ford Mustang, a two-seat, mid-engine sports car, is officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows,
Named for a World War II fighter plane, the Mustang was the first of a type of
vehicle that came to be known as a “pony car.” Ford sold more than 400,000
Mustangs within its first year of production, far exceeding sales expectations.
I hope to see you here!
