The first version of original 1964 - 1/2 Mustang from the American car-maker Ford was launched about fifty years ago. The powerful muscle car dubbed as 'Pony Car' was an instant hit and set the sales charts for Mustang on fire. Mark Reuss, GM’s executive vice president of global product development, purchasing and supply chain, said, “For five decades, the Camaro and the Mustang have been battling it out in every possible setting. These two cars have been striving to beat each other on the track, on the drag strip and on the streets. That competition is a big part of why both cars are so amazing, and so popular, today.”
