In 1964, the Ford Motor Company revolutionized the car industry with the release of the Mustang - the original pony car. Today it remains a landmark American automobile, and The Mustang is an evocative and colorful tribute. Such milestone cars as the 1965 Shelby GT350, the 1969 Boss 429, the 1984 SVO, and the 2000 Cobra R are highlighted with striking photos and informative text.
Almost from conception and certainly from its first appearance in 1964 (under the marketing direction of none other than Lee Iacocca), the Ford Mustang achieved iconic status in American car culture?with 100,000 sold in the first 90 days. Over the next 40 years, America's love affair with the Mustang flourished?for reasons amply documented in this celebration of the style and performance that have made the Mustang a classic?again and again. Packing 250 color photos of more than 80 vehicles into a compact volume, with detailed performance statistics and historical accounts of each Mustang, from the early fastbacks and coupes to the 2007 Shelby GT500, this is the ultimate field guide to the incomparable people's sports car.
