1966 Mustang Fastback
The Mustang needs no introduction but some might not know that the Mustang went from idea to production in a record eighteen months. The design team was given five goals. It must have room for four, have front bucket seats with floor mounted shifter, weigh no more than 2500 pounds, weigh less than 180" in length and sell for no more than $2500 with power, comfort and luxury options. It also had to appeal to not only men but women. From 1964 to 1966 this would be known as the early first generation of Mustangs. Only a few engine options and bodies would be offered, a 2 door hardtop, convertible and Fast back variant.
The first pre-production hardtop was sold at Barrett-Jackson in Arizona
