Meet The BossFord MustangThe Ford Mustang was spectacularly successful from the very beginning of its long and illustrious run. Ford expected the Mustang to be successful of course, but even company executives were astonished at just how well received the car actually was.

They didn’t expect it to reach the 100,000 mark in total sales for the 1965 model year, but in fact they sold that many cars during the first three months. In all, over 400,000 Mustangs were sold for that initial model year and by the time the car was 18 months old 1 million of them had been produced.
