Answer . The Mustang, was introduced in April 1964, was built on the compact Falcons platform and came with a Falcon suspension--soft springs and four-wheel drum brakes.… The '64½ was actually considered a '65 by Ford, but many people now use the terms to differentiate changes made by Ford after mid-August 1964. At this time there were engine changes, the Mustang switched from a generator to an alternator plus interior and exterior color revisions. The car was 181 inches long. It was originally offered with three enginesa 170 C.I. six cylinder, a 260 C.I. 2 bbl V8 or a 289 C.I. 4 bbl V8 and came with a three-speed, four-speed or automatic.
The original design of the 2-seater concept car was by John NajjarFerzely and Philip C. Clark. The 4-seater production model (T-5) was developed by a Ford teamunder engineer D…onald L. Frey and became the 1965 Mustang revealedto the public on April 17, 1964. Lee Iacocca is credited as being the 'father of the mustang'. he came up with the idea to launch a small sports car in the ford line to make an affordable, fast selling car

Mr. Phil (Phillip) Clark came up with the idea for the Mustang two seater car while he was in Nashville, Tennessee on his way to California for the Art School of Design. He sa…w the running horses (wild Mustangs) and wanted to have that as his icon on the car he would create. First he gave the idea to GM (see Witzenberg Doc, 1971 about the GM Mustang) but that didn't work out..then in Advanced Design and Research, a place funded by Grants ETC, the car was completed in Clay--the Team that completed the Car included Jim Quinlan, Jerry Malinowski and others. The Car was liked by the Lincoln Mercury division Head, Eugene (Gene) Bordinat. Phil Clark had also designed several running horses for the car. The 1962 Two seater has one running horse on it, and then in 1964 it had been sent back to CLARK and Malinowski to "Streamline" into a one piece emblem to replace the original Cast two piece emblem. This emblem was put onto the production cars--after it went through a couple of others, see www.ponysite.de for more Mustang history.. The Two seater was the forerunner of the Re-designed Falcon. Phil Clark's Mustang Coupe design can be found in the 1963 Fall edition of Motorcade Magazine, signed by him.. Joe Oros and Donald Frey and others worked on the production car, and some of Clark's ideas transferred onto the car--scoop ideas, horse and some other minor adjustments. The Car was begun in 1962 to get ready for the 1964 Worlds Fair. The Prototype MUSTANG was a great marketing Scheme By Lee Iaccoca to launch the re-skinned Falcon sells..as they had many Falcon bodies left over. Along with the Advertising (J.Walter) group, Ford took the prototype to colleges in a time when T.V's were scarce and word of mouth would get around that Ford had a Race Car equal to the Corvette that was affordable..and everyone wanted one..so when it came out with just the scoop idea added and of course the Running Mustang Emblem, everyone wanted it..because Ford spent two years carrying the two-seater around to Market the re-skinned Falcon. . You can thank motivational management techiques for the original Mustang design, abetted by a shrewd chief designer, Joe Oros. Oros first worked for GM in the 1930s and early 1940s, then joined the independent George Walker group that shaped the vital all-new 1949 Ford and the cars and trucks that built on its timely success. When Walker became Ford's in-house design vice president in 1955, he made Oros an assistant, then named him to head the Ford Studio in 1956. Though Oros would supervise the design of almost every U.S. Ford-brand vehicle over the next dozen years, the Mustang was undoubtedly his biggest success as studio chief. Ironic, then, that his team's winning design was something of a rush job, just like that '49 Ford. Here, in his own words, is how Oros remembers the birth of the 1965 Ford Mustang prototype. Lee Iacocca wanted a car that was more of a personalized, sporty four-seater rather than a tight, European 2+2 package. Gene Bordinat requested proposals for it from our Ford studio, Lincoln-Mercury [and Corporate Advanced].. Oros remembered Clark fondly as one of the most talented designers of that time, and said so as Clark's original designs were revealed at the 40th Anniversary of the Mustang in Nashville, Tennessee....Clark had been almost forgotten until that day his daughter revealed the family treasure kept quiet for so many years.. Clark started in Advanced Research and Design (a new named department in that day), freelancing. Was recognized by Eugene Bordinat, who took two seater design from the Advanced design Studio and worked on in in the L-M Studio. Clark then worked closely on the project UNDER Bordinat, and many others were brought in. In the Meantime, Frey's group was working on the 4 seater design.. At some point the two came together--Mustang Prototype and Mustang 4 Seater redesigned Falcon. Ford's Benson Research tells the story of the 4 seaters guys fighting the Mustang Name that had been marketed for years to the appropriate age group and women--and those wanting FORD to produce a Race Car Program; so at the last possible minute the Cougars on the 4-seater were replaced SECRETLY and the 4 seater Falcon was then presented to the Public as MUSTANG...it would seem the name grew on both groups after a time---and stuck...along with CLARK's Original (streamlined version) of his Running Horse.
If you are interested in what events led up to the building of the first mustang you can check places like Wikipedia and Google. There you will find out how the iconic Ford Mu…stang came into being. Here are some links to get you started: - http://fordmustanghistory.org/the-history-of-the-ford-mustang/ - http://classicponycars.com/history.html - http://www.powerpassion.nl/mustang/story-engels.html - http://www.muscularmustangs.com/database/index.php - http://www.musclecarclub.com/musclecars/ford-mustang/ford-mustang-history-1.shtml That should be enough to get you started. If you want to know how it was actually made, that is a different story. The vehicle was made in assembly line fashion from cast iron and steel by American workers at a rate never before seen. It is an icon and can be studied in depth.

wen was the frist ford gt invented
The Ford Mustang was invented in 1961 by Lee Iacocca. The first prototype was built in 1962 but the first production model did not roll off the assembly line until late 1964.…
The Ford Mustang was first available for purchase at dealerships on April 17, 1964. The 'official' first Mustang had the VIN of 5F07F100001, and was intended to be a promo car… that would make the tour circuit to show off Ford's new car line. It was sold by an overly zealous salesman to an airline pilot by the name of Stanley Tucker. Ford later bought the car back from Capt. Tucker and it now resides in a museum in Dearborn, MI. The ford mustang was first introduced in 1964 and half ,the mustang was built in the middle of 1964. The Mustang was first conceived by Lee Iacocca in 1961. The firstprototype was unveiled in 1962 and the first production vehiclerolled off the line in late 1964. The Ford Mustang was first launched in 1964; the Shelby and GTderivatives appeared the following year. Lee Iacocca originaly presented the idea of the Mustang to FordMotor Co. in 1961. The first prototype was unveiled in 1962 and thefirst production models rolled off the line in late 1964. 1961 prototype mustang II, rear engine 2 seater, I can only find62's and 63's on the internet but ford has books with mustanghistory dating back to 1961. 1964 1/2 being the first productionstang. . The first year of production was in 1964, these cars are referred to as "1964.5's" because production didn't start until late '64. The original idea for the Mustang was presented to Ford Motor Co. in 1961, however.
from what i have researched noone has designed that model yet.
Well. In the 1960s there became an "addiction" and "want" for fast vehicles. And by the mid-60s Ford and Dodge had started those vehicles. The want for fast vehicles has never… went away since then. And as you can probably see, Ford, GM, and Chrysler are still in competiton trying to make the best V8 muscle car around today. Here's a look at some muscle cars today, their 0 to 60 mph times, and their engines and power. Ford Mustang GT - 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 w/ 412 horsepower Chevy Camaro SS - 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, 6.2L V8 w/ 426 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT8 - 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, 5.7L Hemi V8 w/ 390 horsepower

The Ford Mustang was invented in the good ole US of A!
Roughly 1964. Most fanatics call the first Mustang the 1964.5 because it was introduced in the middle of the 1964 model production year.
