About as popular a household automotive name as you'll find, the Ford Mustang is the longest surviving of the affordable breed of classic American muscle cars. Since its mid-1964 introduction, the Mustang has always been sold as a coupe and usually a convertible as well. Oil crises, tightening emissions standards and corporate budget cuts have put its future in doubt more than once. But thanks to its perennial popularity with consumers, the Mustang is not only a survivor but one of Ford's greatest success stories.
It's rare that you'll meet a car enthusiast who wouldn't love to have a classic Ford Mustang in his or her personal collection. But more recent vintages have plenty of appeal, while the latest Mustangs offer all the style and performance any car buff could want. Whether you're looking at performance, refinement, fuel economy, features or day-to-day livability, the modern Ford Mustang surpasses all its forbears.
