Mustang


I spotted this classic 1st generation Ford Mustang on the streets of Perth, Australia distinctive in its red livery and the distinctive stallion badge on the front grille. The Ford Mustang is an automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. It was initially based on the second generation North American Ford Falcon, a compact car.Introduced early on April 17, 1964, the 1965 Mustang was the automaker's most successful launch since the Model A.
The Mustang created the "pony car" class of American automobile — sports car-like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks — and gave rise to competitors such as GM's Chevrolet Camaro, AMC's Javelin, and Chrysler's revamped Plymouth Barracuda. It also inspired coup├ęs such as the Toyota Celica and Ford Capri, which were exported to the United States. Current competitive marques include the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro, neither of which can claim to have maintained continuous production since original introduction, a Mustang-exclusive class distinction.
