1962 #1 Ford Mustang 1
This is the Mustang that started it all. And you still have a chance to get one.
The concept car dubbed the Mustang I made its debut at Watkins Glen on October 7, 1962. With American Formula 1 driver Dan Gurney, the Mustang I Concept made a shocking recorded lap time just shy of the pace set prior to the Formula 1 race in that year’s Grand Prix. This very car spiked renewed interest in Ford creating performance cars and earned the cover of Car & Driver in 1962.
It was only a few years later that a redesigned, street ready Mustang was in production and ready for the road. Car enthusiasts were out in force to buy the new breed.
