Happy Birthday to one of the world's best-known sports cars.
Thursday marks the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang.
The car was introduced on April 17, 1964 at the attractive price of only $2,400.
The company originally hoped for annual sales of 100,000 cars, but on the first day alone 22,000 were ordered.
Within two years, sales hit the coveted one-million mark.
It has remained one of Ford's most popular models.
