National Mustang Day

National Mustang Day

Each year, the Mustang world unites by taking their iconic ponies on the road. On 17 April 2022, Mustang enthusiasts celebrate the 58th anniversary of its initial launch. The Mustang was the introduction of a line of small sporty cars with sleek lines and an affordable price tag.

The Ford Mustang was officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, NY on the same April day in 1964. This soon-to-be-legendary car also debuted in Ford dealerships across the United States. 22,000 units were scooped up in less than 24 hours and 400,000 were sold in the first year.

The folks at Ford knew there was a market for a sports car. They designed theirs to overcome the inherent drawbacks in the category previously–including a choppy ride, poor weather sealing, and tiny trunks.

Ford was able to create a magic formula that stayed the course for more than half a century. The Mustang has always been an affordable, stylish, and sporty 2+2 with available V8 power.

An American Institution

The Ford Mustang continues to be the world’s best-selling sports coupe for the seventh year in a row according to Ford’s analysis of registration data from S&P Global Mobility. Over 9 million Mustangs have been sold since its launch back in 1964. National Ford Mustang Day celebrates the car that has become an American institution.

Worldwide events to honor the Mustang provide an opportunity to really appreciate what American Engineering can do, and how a car can change the face of the automotive industry.
