The Mustang is one of the oldest nameplates in the automotive world--and rightly so. Since its debut on April 17 at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York, the Ford Mustang has stood for affordable performance and till this day it remains America's only pony car to stay in uninterrupted production over four decades of development and revisions.

The original concept of the Mustang was a reasonably priced “personal coupe” that, according to one of the car’s founding fathers, Lee Iacocca, would appeal to both men and women. Over the years, however, the Mustang quickly become an icon of American muscle and today ranks among the world’s highest selling sports cars.

Original sales forecasts for the first 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang was projected at less than 100,000 units for the whole of the first year but in a little over 18 months, Ford managed to move almost one million Mustangs.

Today the Mustang is into its fifth generation and continues to push the boundaries for what buyers can expect in a reasonably priced sports car. In honor of this iconic status, we’re celebrating the Mustang across the High Gear Media empire this month and next, so check out our full index of stories below. Additionally, in two week's time, we'll also bring you the first drive of the latest 2011 Ford Mustang, including the return of the 5.0 Mustang. Then in April, we'll bring it all home with a wrap-up on the day the Mustang was born--April 17.
