Do you agree that these are the Top 5 Ford Mustangs of all-time? There are a couple of interesting Mustang choices on this list, no doubt determined by the influence of the models on later designs. At number three, we have the 1979 Mustang. This was the first of the “Fox Body” Mustangs that were produced through 1993. This version of the Mustang helped revive the model after the down years of the second generation Mustang, which was a product of rising oil prices in the 1970s and car buyers’ tastes for smaller, compact vehicles. It’s understandable that the 1979 Mustang would make the list in terms of its influence. This style was produced for 14 years, and in terms of sales, is perhaps the most successful of the Mustang generations. Even so, this model doesn’t seem as memorable today. When you see Mustangs out on the road now, you tend to see classic first generation or more recent fourth or fifth generation models. There doesn’t seem to be as much interest in the second or third generation Mustangs produced from 1974 to 1993. Things that are retro tend to come back into style, so it will be interesting to see if these models become more popular in future years.
Predictably, the number one Mustang on this list is the first, the 1965, also known as the 1964 1/2, because it was released in the first quarter of 1964. The ’65 is a cool car, but my favorite from the list is number five, the 1969 Boss 302 Mustang. It continues to be influential today, and other than the Shelby, it’s the only classic Mustang on this list that seems to have aged perfectly. Check out these five Mustangs and let us know what you think. Are there any they’ve missed? Enjoy and ‘Share’
