Before April 17, 1964, a mustang was just a horse, but on that date Ford unveiled a car that gave the word a whole new meaning.
The company debuted the Mustang at the World's Fair as a two-seat sports car. The commercial for the car boasts of "dozens of options," power steering and power brakes. The Mustang would become synonymous with the motor brand and an instant classic. Check out the original in all its 1964 glory in the video above.
