On March 2, 1966, the millionth Ford Mustang moved off its Dearborn, Michigan, construction line. It was a V8-adorned convertible coloured silver frost, and it was taken away by a man names Stanley Tucker – a pilot who, by a peculiar touch of destiny, coincidentally purchased the first Mustang with a serial number.
It’s hard for folks to get excited about Milestone cars, as they’re much more common than the name suggests, Although the insane thing about the millionth Mustang is the unanticipated and rapid nature of how it happened. The model was presented in April 1964 and went up for sale shortly after. Those early autos are famously known as 1964 1/2 models, yet they’re actually 1965 models. So their 1 millionth make was produced in the auto’s second year of production.
to add some perspective, the Ford Model T was first presented in September 1908, and the millionth for this make was manufactured barely seven years after the fact in December 1915.
It’s not unanticipated that Ford could manufacture 1 million Mustangs in such a brief timeframe; large scale manufacturing is a grand feat. It’s surprising that they simply did. Consider that the Model T was an all-in-one – the “Universal Car,” as Ford dubbed it. The Mustang was a to some degree more speciality item. It was the more functional addition to Ford’s lineup, not the only one the built. That such huge numbers of were created and sold in such a brief span addresses the gigantic size and incredulous variety of the market at the time; obviously, the car had come a long, way since the early 1900’s.
