The 1967, 1968, 1969, and 1970 Ford Mustang is known as a First Generation Mustang and was first produced in Dearborn, Michigan. The Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964, and is the second longest lasting production vehicle made by Ford. The Ford Falcon and Ford Fairlane set the manufacturing standard for the Mustang; many of the core mechanical components of this classic Mustang were indeed the same as these older models. Demand for the first generation Ford Mustang rose to over one-million units in the first year and a half, and made history for Ford as being one of the most popular classic muscle cars ever.
In 1967 the Ford Mustang got a big-block V8 engine, which produced 320 horsepower. The engine was originally used in the Ford Thunderbird, and this classic muscle car offered a range of interior options and also came in a convertible option. The styling of the Mustang was again updated in 1969, and is considered one of the recognizable muscle cars ever built. The 1969 and 1970 models were still First Generation Ford's, and most of the Mustang buyers were interested in the 335-hp V8 power of this classic muscle car. This First Generation Mustang styling ended in the early 1970's as the Mustang model continued to get heavier and more powerful, setting the standard for a high power muscle car.
