The Henry Ford - Dearborn, Michigan
Mustang Number One at the Driving America exhibit, The Henry Ford Museum. This car, serial number one, was originally purchased by a Canadian Airline pilot, Stanley Tucker. This is a 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible.
The Mustang was Ford's "sweet spot" for many years. It is an old industry cliche, "you can't sell a young man an old man's car. But you can sell an old man a young man's car." The sporty Mustang was a young man and a young woman's car. The under 30 crowd loved it, but older people also bought it, often as a second car. It appealed to a wide range of buyers.
