The Ford Mustang changed the automotive world like no other car before or since. Mustang: Fifty Years, the first officially licensed book celebrating the Mustang's fiftieth anniversary, tells the story of this unbroken lineage of muscle. In the early 1960s, Lee Iacocca-then director of the Ford division at Ford Motor Company-convinced Henry Ford II to produce a sporty four-seat car aimed at the emerging youth market. That car, essentially a reconfigured and re-skinned Falcon economy car, became the Ford Mustang, and it changed the automotive world like no other car before or since. In Mustang: Fifty Years, acclaimed Mustang writer Donald Farr celebrates this unbroken lineage of muscle: its phenomenal first-year sales, the new "pony car" genre it pioneered, and subsequent models that include the Mustang GT, Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500, Super Cobra Jet, Boss 302 and Boss 429-all part of a line of American performance cars that continues on to this day. With 400 photos of the USA's iconic sports car and released in tandem with the Mustang's 50th anniversary, Mustang: Fifty Years is a must on the bookshelf of any gearhead or Ford aficionado.
