The advertising campaign when the Ford Mustang was first introduced to the public was nothing short of massive. Beginning in April 1964, the Ford Motor Company flooded television with Mustang commercials on all three major networks at the same time. Many would say that it was the largest advertising campaign of any automobile introduction.

The first generation Ford Mustang’s high popularity is proof that Lee Iococca’s  idea of a pony car had the staying power to influence other manufacturers and countless car enthusiasts to this day. The pony car named a Mustang was quite appropriate. The Mustang at it’s introduction broke all post-war sales records in the US.

The Ford Mustang was conceived as a “working man’s Thunderbird,” according to Ford. The first Mustangs  featured a long hood and short rear deck and 1967 brought the first major restyling to the Ford Mustang.

Mustang’s First Major Restyling

The first redesign for the Mustang came about that model year most likely because Chevrolet was ready to introduce their Camaro model that year. And as it turned out the Chevy Camaro was a very close match to the Mustang in regards to specifications. The competition for the Mustang was definitely heated up. In addition to the new Camaro there was Pontiac’s Firebird, Mercury’s Cougar, and Plymouth’s Barracuda.

While the Mustang’s first major restyling appeared in 1967, the Ford Motor Company wasn’t about to depart from the long-hood, short-rear-deck theme that was so popular; so, they played up this theme for hardtop, convertible, and fastback body styles with a larger grille opening, twin inlet side scoops, a concave taillight panel, Inside there were new trimmings, and a new dash board and many more features. Whether standard or GT,  the rectangular mesh grille on 1967 models came with a large, center-mounted running horse ornament.

While the wheelbase remained the same, the Mustang was two inches longer than the previous year’s model.
