According to my sources about 15,430 P-51's were built.
A Saleen mustang is produced by a company called Saleen and is a special model built and given a specific VIN identifying it as such. Saleen was started in 1983 by Steve Salee…n, a veteran race driver and produced its first modified Mustang in 1984. His continued involvement with Ford has produced both race cars and street performance cars, but it all started with the Mustang. A Shelby mustang is and was a modified Mustang tuned by Carroll Shelby's company. Shelby was commissioned by Ford to basically hot-rod Ford's best stock Mustangs and make them able to compete successfully in factory racing, as well as to build a scaled down road version that could be sold to the public. Ford, like Ferrari, believed in the adage of "race on Sunday, sell on Monday". Although he was involved in the 1965 model, the first real Shelby Mustang in name cam later, when production for the last Shelby Cobra ceased. Still alive and kickin' He's making the new Mustangs go fast and corner too! The current Shelby Mustang is pushing 500 horses and 480 pounds of torque !
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 first prototype was unveiled in 1962 and the first production vehicle rolled off the line in late 1964. The Ford Mustang was first launched in 1964; the Shelby and GT derivatives appeared the following year. Lee Iacocca originaly presented the idea of the Mustang to Ford Motor Co. in 1961. The first prototype was unveiled in 1962 and the first production models rolled off the line in late 1964. 1961 prototype mustang II, rear engine 2 seater, I can only find 62's and 63's on the internet but ford has books with mustang history dating back to 1961. 1964 1/2 being the first production stang. 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.
The Ford team in charge of naming the Mustang went through many possibilities, including Cougar, Torino, and Venice. Mustang was finally decided upon; #1- because WWII had… ended no too long ago, and the P-51 Mustang Fighter airplane played an incredibly important role in the war; and #2- The Mustang (horse) represented an untameable spirit which they thought would perfectly represent the car and its intended buyers. This is also why the galloping horse logo is running the opposite way that trained racehorses run around a track - that it will always be a free spirit, and follow its own will. R.H. Bob Maguire, my boss, and I were looking through a list of names for the car. I had been reading about the P-51 Mustang airplane and suggested the name Mustang in remembrance of the P-51, but Bob thought the name as associated with the airplane was too 'airplaney' and rejected that idea. I again suggested the same name Mustang, but this time with a horse association because it seemed more romantic. He agreed and we together selected that name right on the spot, and that's how it got its name. From "Mustang Genesis: The Creation of the Pony Car" by Robert A. Fria Taken from the Ford Website.

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 First Mustang (s/n 0000001) was a Wimbleton White 64 1/2 convertible sold , by mistake, to Capt. Stanley Tucker , an airline pilot, in St Johns', Newfoundland, Canad…a. It was a promotional car sent by Ford around the country to promote the new Mustang car. The salesman there, thought the car was to be sold and then did so when Capt Tucker showed interest in the car. It took 2 yrs for Ford to get the car back , in exchange for a new 1967 fastback Mustang (1,000,000,001th ). The '64 1/2 now resides in the Ford museum, still displaying the Nfld and Labrador license plates.

The Ford Mustang GT has a V8 engine, while the Ford Mustang has a V6 engine.
The main difference will be the length of the steering columns themselves. The one from the 1995 will be longer I believe.
The Ford Mustang was introduced to an eager public early on April 17, 1964.
In Ford Mustang
The first Ford Mustang was built in 1964. It debuted in April 1964 and was dubbed the 1964 and a 1/2. They were a mid-year car and some people called them 64 1/2's, but th…ey were actually '65's. Actually...the first Mustangs are indeed '64 1/2's...and recognized by Mustang Club of America as a separate run of Mustangs. The reason for this is varied, but one of the primary reasons is that the '64 1/2 had a generator, while the '65 cars were given alternators. There is also some difference in the radiator frame between the two years. Also the '65 was the first year for the fastback...which was not available for the '64 1/2 run.
