The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic vehicles in the history of the world and is also one of the most popular. Since its conception all the way back in 1962, the Mustang has been one of the most successful cars to have come out of the Ford factory. Over the years, the car has gone from a two-seater concept car to a monster machine and has undergone many changes in the process.
Due to its legendary status, the car has also featured in a number of movies and television shows and has been effective in product placement. In fact, during the celebrity era of the 1960s, the car became somewhat of a celebrity and was associated with the glitz and glam of Hollywood stardom.
