Today is the day our beloved Mustang was first introduced to the public back in 1964!!

So go wish your pony happy birthday... (and maybe even treat it to a wash and wax).

Anyone else here a fan of the early Mustangs?

We currently own a 1965 coupe, a 1985 GT and a 1991 GT. But we have previously owned a 1966 coupe, a 1968 High Country Special, a 1970 Boss 302, another 1985 GT and a 1989 LX 5.0L notchback. Here are some photos and info, if anyone is interested - current Mustangs - past Mustangs.

I too like the early models. A few days before I bought my '83 I was going to buy a '68 coupe with a hot 289 and a C-4. Unfortunately the engine was not in good condition when I went to pick it up and I declined on the purchase. Three days later, I became the owner of the '83 GT below.

Happy Birthday to all ! In the day of B. K. (before kids) I had a 65 2+2, 289 , auto and the old hang on factory air. Big mistake selling that car in 81 . So now with three kids and a wife that doesn't know the word SAVE and a new mini-van every three years, I can't afford one of those anymore. The 89 is a fun daily driver and being in Florida allows 12 months of top down weather. This looks like a 100% topless week !

I don't think I know anyone who can't appreciate a good example of those first generation cars. Back in 1964 there wasn't anything else that you could compare it to. Chrysler had the Barracuda which was a Valiant with a different roof line. GM didn't wake up until like 1967 with the Camaro, and Firebird. Later on in 1970 Chrysler went in pretty seriously with the new Barracuda, and Challenger cars.
I like the fastback (sports roof?) cars the best. Even today those cars turn many heads.

Kathy- Looks like you owned some really neat Mustangs!
My 85 celebrated its 16th birthday last month. It's the very 1st car I ever owned, bought brand new, tried hard over the years to keep it that way. Unlike the troublesome 85 you had, mine's been very reliable for 82k miles. I've been taking it to car shows for 10 years now, although the first few years it was not well received by spectators ("What's that foreign car doing here?" "That's not a REAL Mustang." etc.). These days the reaction is much different.
It's just so much fun to drive.
I'm a big fan of 1st generation Mustangs and would love to have a 69 or 70 Mach I someday.

Technically the cars such as the Mustang, Camaro, Javelin, Challenger, and their counterparts were called pony cars. They were cars that seemed to be created just in time for those 20 something year old baby boomers.
I always thought muscle cars were the big block hp pony cars or the heavy weight bigger bodied hp cars such as the Fairlane GT, Coronet R/T, Chevelle SS, and naturally John D's GTO.
They were all cool! I was born too late.

I love my 65 GT Fastback. It is an "A" code factory GT. It has black pony interior. Originally it was Rangoon Red but when my dad and I restored it (13 years ago!) we changed it to black. In the next couple of years I plan on changing it back to red. My wife and I love to cruise in it. I would like to keep driving my 90 Vert and buy another older stang. Something like a 65-66 convertible. Just bought a house so right now I am dreaming.

Well my little Vert turned 13 earlier this month. I love the car and have no intentions of getting rid of her. I won't make the same mistake that I had made with my 68 fastback w\ 289 4sp and (forgive me) 69 Camaro. Never sell your pride and joy or you will always regret it....are you listening Wes?? haha
