The legendary Ford Mustang has been around for about 60 years and has continued to be a contender against other vehicles down through the years. Let's take a look at the different Mustang generations.

In 1964, the Ford brought out the Mustang in New York. With its sporty style and powerful engine, it was a hot ride from the start. It grabbed the attention of so many people that Ford outperformed in expectations, selling more than 400,000 in the first year.

Some of the more popular first-generation Mustangs include the Bullitt, Eleanor, Mach 1, Boss 302, Shelby GT350, and Shelby GT500.

 

Second-Generation Ford Mustang (1974-1978)

When it gets to the second-generation Mustangs, it seems this line was more forgettable than others. Because of the energy crisis and stricter emissions standards, Ford drastically changed the look of the car, giving it an opera window and a vinyl top.

Some models that were more likable included special editions like the Mach 1 and King Cobra II.

 

Third-Generation Ford Mustang (1979-1993)

Ford revived the Mustang with the introduction of the Fox Body generation for the 1979 model year. The moniker comes from Ford's Fox platform shared with the Fairmont, Granada, and other Blue Oval vehicles. Fans rejoiced as the Fox Body embraced modern styling with first-gen cues and more capable powertrains. Along the way, the "Vanilla Ice" 5.0 Mustang appears and is cemented into American culture. Other standouts include the highly collectible SVO edition with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and the prized SVT Cobra and Cobra R. The Foxy Body Mustang enjoys support among collectors and tuners due to a plentiful and cheap supply and simple mechanics.

 

Fourth-Generation Ford Mustang (1994-2004)

It hosts a 5.0-liter engine until 1996 when it's replaced with a 4.6-liter V-8 engine delivers 300 horsepower.
