The 1966 Ford Mustang was created by workers of the Ford industry. When people think of muscle cars they automatically think of the Mustang. Its name is directly linked to horse power; which is the core of all muscle cars. It's the amount of horse power a car has. 1,000,000 Mustangs were produced and sold within the first 18 months of its introduction.
