The first generation Ford Mustang is the quintessential American muscle car of the late 1960s. The Mustang project produced several early prototypes, but the official release was in mid-1964. Collectors refer to the 1964 cars as “64 1/2s.” In the early Mustangs, most of the interior, chassis, suspension, and drivetrain were carried over from the Ford Falcon and Fairlane. The styling, with its short back end and elongated hood, were a hit with consumers. It was the best selling Ford car since the Model A.
In Germany, the Ford Mustang was not called a Mustang. The name was already owned by an automaker named Krupp, who used the Mustang name for a line of trucks. In Germany, the Ford Mustang was called a T5.
The Mustang came in several body styles, including a hardtop, fastback coupe, and convertible. Special editions included the Mach 1, the Boss 302, Boss 429, and the Shelby Cobra 350.
One particularly powerful edition was the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302, which was a version exclusively for North America. It was a 2-door fastback coupe, which was front engined and utilized RWD (rear-wheel drive) and a manual 4-speed transmission. It used a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 4942 cm3 / 301.6 cubic inches. Its advertised power was 216 kW / 290 hp / 294 PS and it had torque of 393 Nm / 290 lb-ft. It had a top speed of 211 km/h or 131 mph. It was fast out of the blocks. It had a 0-60 mph time of just 6.7 seconds and a 0-100 km/h time of only 7.1 seconds. The 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 15.2 seconds.
