The original Mustang was a sports car for the masses, and Ford sold them by the millions. One reason why: it was actually quite the practical car, as this in-period advertising film shows.

This two-minute ad, uploaded to the Ford Heritage channel on YouTube, details some of the useful features of the new-for-'65 2+2 Mustang coupe. One of the coolest pieces of engineering is the rear seat area, which, when not in use, can fold down on itself and create a surprisingly large, flat storage area.

All these features, plus three body styles and three different sizes of V-8 engine, made the Mustang appealing to just about anyone. No wonder it became an icon.

The Salvage Title Mustang That Was Thought To Be A Shelby.
This 1966 Fastback was originally thought to be a true GT350 yet recent developments suggest otherwise. Originally thought to be a true Shelby GT350, this 1966 Mustang has recently been discovered to be a clone, albeit a pretty good one. Initial photos show a car that’s met an untimely demise, but look further and you’ll see some rather upsetting damage. If you’re anxious around twisted classic metal, we suggest you don’t look any further, but here’s the eBay listing in case you’re interested.
