Few cars have had the impact that the Ford Mustang did when it was introduced in 1964. The original Ford Mustang debuted at the attractive price of $2,368. Dealers were inundated with requests for the sleekly-styled new vehicle. Ford initially forecast annual sales of about 100,000 units. On the first day alone, dealers took 22,000 Mustang orders. During the Mustang’s first 12 months on the market, sales built to an astounding 417,000. Within two years, sales had catapulted to one million.
