As a classic that has penetrated American culture, TV, and movies, this car isn’t going anywhere. 22,000 Mustangs were sold on the first day. The first Mustang, a convertible model, was meant to be used exclusively for a dealership tour.
One name Ford strongly considered was the Cougar. Eventually the powers that be at Ford came to an agreement and decided on the name Mustang and the rest is history. Designer John Najjar claims that he first pitched the name Mustang after the WWII P-51 fighter plane, but when he presented the idea, it got rejected. The commonly recognized horse logo on the Mustang took many forms before the release of the car. The Mustang created the category of the ‘pony’ car, a reference to its distinctive horse logo.
