Don Frey, Product Planning Manger for the original Ford Mustang said, “We built the first prototype in an experimental garage, and employees flooded the place to see it. Their reaction was spectacular, and it was very revealing to us. We knew the car was going to be a roaring success from the start.”
Ford initially forecasted Mustang sales to be around 100,000 units; however, sales in the first 12 months more than quadrupled that estimate with sales at 417,000.
