Production of the Mustang started in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964 and the automobile was presented to the general public on April 17, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. It is Ford’s third oldest nameplate currently in production. Original sales projections projected less than 100,000 devices for the first year. This mark was exceeded in three months from rollout. Another 318,000 would be offered during the model year (a record), and in its first eighteen months, more than one million Mustangs were constructed.
