History of the Ford Mustang Pony CarBy 1964, large muscle cars were being replaced by smaller automobiles with big engines - good-looking power packs that delivered the power they seemed to promise. The Ford Mustang that hit the roads was like comparing a fast pony to a carthorse, and it was not long until the Mustang racked up 2 million sales in its first two years of life. Its attraction was in its smaller size, good looks and the powered it delivered.Unlike a large Chevy it was easy to park and possessed a thrilling 'sporty' look. Even the name suggested a wildness about it that young men of the day could use to impress their girls. The success of this car led to a growing demand for Mustang GT parts and accessories.High Performance with ComfortThe term GT (Grand Tourist or Grande Tourismo) refers to a high performance car that also offers comfort. Such GT cars can offer race car performance, but more comfort in the seating and ancillary equipment than a race car. The GT designation was suspended by Ford in 1969, but was then resurrected in 1982, when the 1982 Mustang was equipped with a 5 liter V-8 engine, leading to the GT 5.0 Fox Body Mustangs that were sought after in the 1980s -1990s.The 2012 Ford Mustang offers the power of 412 horses from its 5 Liter 8-valve engine, and is a magnificent example of what Ford can do with a headline pony car.
