The legendary Ford Mustang appeared in the lineup of the American manufacturer in 1964 in two body styles: a convertible and a two-door sedan (coupe). Within two years, the company sold 1,000,000 copies of the car. The manufacturer offered ample opportunities to customize the machine.

For example, only one Mustang interior could have been designed in one of 34 variants. A year after the start of production, various sports modifications of the Mustang began to appear. The car was overhauled in 1969. The car has gained in size and weight and also received new modifications.

The second-generation Mustang debuted in 1974. The car has become smaller but retained all types of bodies. In 1978, the third generation car was presented at the Geneva Motor Show. After that, the model was constantly updated with new body options and engines. In 1993, the Mustang IV entered the market, which was styled after the first models.

For the 40th anniversary of the brand’s history, the company has released the Mustang GT-R model, equipped with a 440-horsepower aluminum V8 engine. A completely new generation of the sports car was presented at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show. The new Ford Mustang is built on a modified platform and features a more aggressive body.

The first-generation Ford Mustang Convertible hit the market in 1964. In addition to the convertible, the model was presented in a coupe body. The design of the car was similar to the design of the Continental Mark II luxury coupe, which was produced under the Lincoln brand in the mid-50s. Under the hood of the car was installed a six-cylinder engine from Falcon with a volume of 2.8 liters.

In 1967, a new version of the car appeared, adding in length and height. Another modernization was carried out in 1969. The car moved further away from the initial concept. A full second generation was born in 1974. The exterior of the car went back to basics, and its design was developed by the Italian specialist Alessandro de Tomaso.

Between 1979 and 1993, the third generation Mustang Convertible was produced. The car was designed on the Fox platform, and the appearance and dimensions of the car resembled the Scorpio and Sierra models. The convertibles were powered by V6 engines. In addition, a charged modification was released with a V8 engine, developing an output of 175 horsepower.

In 1984, for the 20th anniversary of the car, the manufacturer released a limited edition GT350. In 1994, a new generation of Mustang was released, which underwent a major redesign. And in 2004, at the North American International Motor Show, the premiere of a completely redesigned car on the new D2C platform took place.
