Besides being perhaps one of the most iconic muscle cars of the American 1960s, it's important to look back at the history of the vehicle in order to reveal just how it changed the landscape of automotive advertising forever. Bearing the slogan “the car to be designed by you”, Ford Mustangs took the world by storm and allowed complete customization from the bottom up. Drivers could buy their cars, for usually less than $2,500 at the time, with as many fancy bells and whistles or as close to the stock release as they wished.

This alone would be enough to sell quite a few cars, but it was the aggressive advertising that really set the Mustang alight in the automotive world. Regular television spots were a staple throughout its development, but history was made on April 16, 1964. Just one day before its release, Ford timed and ran simultaneous television commercials on the three largest television networks in the United States: ABC, NBC, and CBS.

The results were almost instant. Customers flooded Ford showrooms nationwide and were in a frenzy to be some of the first to own the Mustang and over 22,000 vehicles were sold in just a single day. By the end of the production year, Ford sold over a quarter of a million Mustangs and this number almost doubled by the car's first anniversary. There's no doubt that the car was here to stay and Ford was definitely onto something in its approach to selling cars.
