When the Mustang debuted in the middle of 1964, it was an instant hit and the product line would carry Ford through the muscle car era and into the decades to come. Originally, the Mustang was targeted at the younger generation of car buyers who were looking for sportier cars rather than the big boats driven by their parents. These new youthful purchasers also were looking for a car that was inexpensive but still offered great performance. Given that the first 2 iterations of Mustangs were wildly successful cars for Ford in terms of sales, the 1966 version only featured a few minor tweaks. The most notable change between the 65 and 66 Mustang was the new grille which featured a floating Mustang logo and horizontal grille bars.
