Happy 60th Birthday, Ford Mustang

Today is the 60th birthday of the iconic 1964 Ford Mustang. The first one rolled off the assembly line on March 9.

It made its official debut at the New York 1964 World's Fair in April. Price for the basic model? $1,995.00!

I grew up in a Ford dealer family and I'll never forget Dad driving one home a convertible model on a gorgeous spring evening. A small crowd of neighbors gathered around our driveway. When he took us for a drive around the neighborhood, people were gawking and pointing.

By the way, with inflation, the cost of that Mustang today would be $19,848.13.
