In 1964, Ford's new pony car was immediately embraced by the "Mustang" generation - those Baby Boomers who blossomed into a huge buying force - and were looking for a new car that fit their fun-loving, go-fast lifestyle. The Mustang, because its DNA included affordability, performance and cachet, was that car. One million Mustangs were sold in the first 18 months.
This show tells the story of America's love affair with the Mustang through the eyes of collectors, enthusiasts, journalists and former Ford employees who were there at the beginning, including Gale Halderman (who designed the 1965 Mustang), Henry Ford III, Mustang expert Jeff Burgy, authors John Clor, Bob Fria, and Matt Stone.
Mustangs of all generations were shot in beautiful high definition, wide-screen video and are featured along with rarely seen historical footage from the Ford Archives. There are also profiles on Carroll Shelby, Lee Iacocca and others.
