Born in April of 1964.
- Cars made before September of 1964 are considered 1964 1/2
- 1964 1/2 models included only the convertible and coupe
- Fastback was introduced in the 1965 model year
- 1964 1/2 through 1966

Carroll Shelby introduced his GT-350's in fastback model (six convertibles exist from '66).
Engine options were:
1) 260 V-8 (early).
2) 200 Six Cylinder (4 lug wheels).
3) 200 Horsepower 289 (C-Code).
4) 225 Horsepower 289 (A-Code).
5) 271 Horsepower 289 (K-Code) (aka Hi-po 289).

GT package is second only to GT-350 in desirability and value today

1967 through 1968 (they were a little bigger).
Shelby GT-350 was joined by the GT-500 (big block) in this era.
Shelby also added a convertible to his offerings.
Largely due to consumer outcry started in Hot Rod magazine, a - 428 was added in 1968.
428 Cobra Jet was a success and one of the fastest things on the street.
You could order a Mustang and have the dealer put a 427 into it.
The age of the "Specials" arrive: California, High Country.

1969 through 1970 (even larger this time).
Mach I is introduced.
Boss 302 is introduced.
Boss 429 is introduced, women pick up children off the street.
Shelby's get completely civilized, Shelby himself turns the program over to Ford.
Body styles increase: Sportsroof, Coupe, Grande, and Convertible.
Options go ballistic: GT, Mach, Boss, Grande, Specials, etc. etc. etc.

1971 through 1973 (REALLY Big!)
Boss 429 and Boss 302 are replaced by Boss 351.
429 is normal engine option.
Shelby Mustangs are no more.
The age of the classic Mustang is drawn to an end (sniff).

If there's one thing Ford has learned in many years, it's the magic of how they are to preserve they're car parts such as Ford Tailgates to last for years.

Ford has been selling mass-produced automobiles in the all over the country, this really just show how popular Ford is. People won't gave interest on it if Ford automobiles are not worth buying for.
