On April 17, it will be 50 years since the Mustang was introduced at the New York World’s Fair. I’ve been lucky enough to have a couple of Mustangs to test for Weekend Driver over the years; the two columns are featured on my website’s home page.
My favorite Mustang commercial of all time is this one from 1968; check out the older guy who drives off with… a high school chic? It’s a long commercial, something we don’t see anymore, but it just hits what the marketing was for the original car — not a muscle car, but something that everybody could afford and have some fun.
Happy Birthday, Mustang!
