Using the foundation from the Falcon, Lee Iacocca created a masterpiece of design built on a hefty dose of marketing acumen. Designer Roy Lunn and his small team constructed a prototype in just 100 days, allowing the car to debut at an affordable price in 1964 as a 1965 model. While all first-generation Mustangs are special, the fastback coupes are more so, with styling that has become an icon of muscle car design.The standard interior features of the 1965 Mustang included adjustable driver and passenger bucket seats, an AM radio, and a floor mounted shifter in a variety of color options. Ford added additional interior options during the 1965 model year. The Interior Decor Group was popularly known as "Pony Interior" due to the addition of embossed running ponies on the seat fronts.
