50 Years of Ford Mustang: 1964 - 2014

To celebrate 50 years of the world's greatest muscle car, we've gathered together six examples of Mustangs and their owners to represent each era - from the first generation 1964½ D-Code through to a current generation 2013 GT.

With the cars all lined-up for our feature shoot, Uncle Phil says, "It doesn't matter whether you're old or young, most people like a Mustang...it doesn't get any better than that!"

 

Through the years:
1960s:
Robert Van Stokrom's 1964½ Mustang 289 coupe D-Code. "How an old Mustang should be", says Uncle Phil.
1970s: Chris Leniman's 1970 Mustang Mach I with ('69 spec) Windsor 2V, Texas Speedway pace car. (Driver: Richard Dabbs)
1980s: Travis Folwell's 1989 Mustang Saleen (Fox body)
1990s: Ron Campbell's 1995 Mustang Saleen Convertible
2000s: Mick Romeril's 2002 Mustang Tickford-Converted Cobra
Current generation: From Mustang Motorsport, Craig Dean's 2013 Mustang 5.0-litre V8

Plus, in issue #366 we go into the history of the Mustang story, with some little-known trivia about America's favourite Pony car. We also take a peek at the new generation, 2015 model.
