First generation (1964–1973)

Main article: First-generation Ford Mustang

First conceived by Ford product manager Donald N. Frey [2][3] and championed by Ford Division general manager Lee Iacocca, the Mustang prototype was a two-seat, mid-engine roadster. This would later be remodeled as a four-seat car penned by David Ash and John Oros[4] in Ford's LincolnMercury Division design studios, which produced the winning design in an intramural design contest called by Iacocca. To cut down the development cost and achieve a suggested retail price of US$2,368, the Mustang was based heavily on familiar, yet simple components. Much of the chassis, suspension, and drivetrain components were derived from the Ford Falcon and Fairlane. The car had a unitized platform-type frame, which was taken from the 1964 Falcon, and welded box-section side rails, including welded crossmembers. The Mustang grew larger and heavier with each passing year, culminating with the 1971 to 1973 models that were far different compared to the original 1964 model. The automaker was deluged with mail from fans of the original car who demanded that the Mustang be returned to its original size and concept.

Second generation (1974–1978)

Main article: Second-generation Ford Mustang

Pony cars were in disfavor by 1970, buyers preferred cheaper, fuel-efficient compact cars. The new-for-1974 "Mustang II" model was drastically smaller than the 1973 cars. On assuming the Ford Motor Company presidency, in December of 1970, Lee Iacocca ordered a smaller Mustang for 1974, initial plans required basing the 1974 Mustang on the Ford Maverick, a compact car of like size and power akin to the Falcon's, the Mustang's original base car. Those plans went undone in favor of a yet smaller 1974 Mustang based on the Ford Pinto, a sub-compact car. Such a Mustang could better compete with smaller, imported, sports coupés, such as the Japanese Toyota Celica and the European Ford Capri (then Ford-built in Germany and Britain, sold in U.S. by Mercury as a captive import car). The introduction of the smaller Mustang II was well-timed — two months shy of the first "Energy Crisis", in October of 1973. The first-year sales were 385,993 cars, almost that of the original Mustang's twelve-month sales record of 418,812 cars.[5] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 287 pixelsFull resolution (929 × 333 pixel, file size: 42 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...

Third generation (1979–1993)

Main article: Third-generation Ford Mustang

In 1979, the new Mustang was based on the larger Fox platform (initially developed for the 1978 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr). The Mustang's interior was re-styled to comfortably accommodate four people, despite a smaller rear seat. The 1979 Mustang had a larger trunk (boot) and a larger motor bay, for better service access. The body styles included a coupé (Notchback) and a hatchback; a convertible Mustang was offered in 1983. The offered car-trim levels included: "LX", "GT", the 1993 "Cobra", the 1984-86 turbocharged "SVO", and the 1993 "Cobra R". The available motors were: 105 hp (78 kW) 2.3 L four-cylinder, 109 hp (81 kW) 2.8 L Cologne V6 (made by Ford of Europe), and the 140 hp (104 kW) 302 CID (4.9 L), [6] all from the Mustang II cars line. Supplies of the 2.8 L proved inadequate, leading to its mid-1979 replacement, Ford's 85 hp (63 kW). 3.3 L inline-six cylinder motor, and a new 132 hp (98 kW) 2.3 L turbo-charged, four-cylinder motor, with V8-like horsepower, was introduced. Also, between 1982 and 1984, the 3.8 L Essex V6 was used. ImageMetadata File history File links 1993MustangGTConvertible. ...

Fourth generation (1994–2004)

Main article: Fourth-generation Ford Mustang

In 1994, the Mustang underwent its first major redesign in 15 years. The design, code named "SN-95" by Ford, was based on an updated version of the rear-wheel drive Fox platform known as "Fox-4". It featured dramatic new styling by Patrick Schiavone that incorporated some stylistic elements similar to those on earlier Mustangs.[7] However, unlike all earlier Mustangs, a notchback coupé model was unavailable.

The base model came with a 3.8 L V6 engine rated at (1994-1995) 145 hp (108 kW) or (1996-1998) 150 hp (112 kW), or (1999-2004) 190 hp (142 kW), while the GT featured the 302 cu in V8, now using the intake manifold from the Thunderbird, a 60 mm throttle body, and a 215 hp (160 kW) rating. The Cobra model also returned with its GT-40 equipped 302 cu in engine, now rated at 260 hp (194 kW). The Mustang was named Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year for the third time in 1994. The Canadian Essex (90 Degree V) engine was a V6 engine family built by Ford Motor Company in Windsor, Ontario. ...


After nearly 40 years, Ford retired its overhead-valve small-block V8 and in 1996, the 4.6 liter Ford Modular engine was introduced for the first time for the Mustang.[8] The Modular engine is Ford Motor Companys modern overhead camshaft (OHC) V8 and V10 engine family. ...


For 1999, the Mustang received Ford's 'New Edge' styling theme with sharper contours, larger wheel arches, and creases in the bodywork, but its basic proportions remained the same as the previous redesign. All 1999 Mustangs (except the Cobra) received "35th-Anniversary" badges on the front fenders,[9] but there were 4,628 GTs made as "35th Anniversary Limited Edition" models featuring unique exterior and interior trim.[10]


Fifth generation (2005–present)

Main article: Fifth-generation Ford Mustang

At the 2004 North American International Auto Show, Ford introduced a completely redesigned Mustang which was codenamed "S-197" and based on an all-new D2C platform for the 2005 model year. Developed under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang and exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace, the fifth generation Mustang draws inspiration from Mustangs of the 1960s, notably the 1969-70 models. It was this redesigned aesthetic that inspired Ford's Senior Vice President of Design, J Mays, to call it "retro-futurism." The 2005 Mustang's unique retro coupe styling complements its muscle car status with an approximate weight to power ratio of 11.5:1. The current Mustangs are manufactured at the AutoAlliance International plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The base Mustang, equipped with a 5-speed Tremec T-5 manual transmission, is powered by a cast iron block 210 hp (157 kW) 4.0 L SOHC Ford Cologne V6 engine, replacing the 3.8 L pushrod V6. The Mustang GT features a standard 5-speed manual Tremec TR-3650 transmission with an aluminum 300 hp (224 kW) 4.6 L 3-valve Modular V8 with variable camshaft timing.[citation needed] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (2272 × 1704 pixel, file size: 487 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Photograph by Kevin Foley, Waltham, MA USA.

Special editions and modified Mustangs

Main article: Ford Mustang variants

While the original concept for the Mustang did not foresee its evolution into a performance car, Ford has catered to individuals looking for more performance. Early variants available direct from the factory included the Boss 302 Mustang and Mach 1. While high performance vehicles fell out of favor during the fuel crisis of the 1970s, the tradition was carried forward in later years with the Ford Mustang SVO and Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. Over the years, third party vendors and independent car designers have utilized the Mustang as a starting point for their own designs. Designers such as Carroll Shelby and companies such as Roush Performance and Saleen have made a name for themselves by specializing in producing Mustang performance parts and building custom cars.[12] [13] Ford and other third party companies offered their own modified versions of popular Mustang in order to cater performance centric enthusiast who wants more power, sharper handling and better styling. ...
