Test Your Ford Mustang Knowledge!

Can you believe the Ford Mustang is turning 50? That’s right – it hasn’t missed a year of production in a centennial! And it had quite the debut in 1964, well beyond its game-changing performance and looks.

For the 50th anniversary of this very special car, Ford will be doing all sorts of celebrating! That includes 50 companies selling various festive items, such as watches, T-shirts, a leather jacket and model cars, and there will also be a special commemorative 50th logo.

There’s a lot going on during this special time of celebration, but let’s see how Mustang-centric you are! Try your hand at our Mustang quiz, then let us know all about your Mustang, whether you own it now or had one in the past!

Richard J 80% not too bad for an old guy who has always wanted a Mustang but never have......yet

Glenn C 90% should have 100. I knew the SVO came out in 84 but my tablet often causes me to make mistakes! Not very accurate sometimes with a stylus.

Amos R Well it covered my least knowledgeable years (mostly) in the history of the Mustang so I only scored 50%. Does anyone have a VINTAGE questionnaire covering Mustangs & Shelby's. Say, a really in depth 1960's era questionnaire, the more hardcore and technical the better! :) I've owned a '66 GT, a '69 'M' Code Mach I, a '65 2+2 Fastback (of course), and a couple more here and there to boot. '66 GT was my first car. Currently I still have the '66 GT (need to do a TOTAL restoration on it. To start soon since I'm retired.) All I have left at the moment are the '66 GT & the '69 'M' code Mach I. I says 'M' code on the Mach I because I'm curious to see how many of you young'uns (Not being disrespectful, I'm 51 this past Feb 3 2013.) can figure out EXACTLY which motor/carbureted configuration that's in it. It's the original motor, Intake & Top Loader 4 speed it came with. Good luck and keep it 'tween the 'bar ditches'! ;)

Marley 90%! Not bad for a girl. One can learn a lot from reading, building models and collecting hot wheels! Not to mention my dad! I'll have to settle for building models and collecting hot wheels until I can actually rebuild my own! Rock on my fellow Stang friends.

Eric H I got 80% right! Not too bad for a 'non-purist,' - my first Mustang was an '82 GL, and my current is a 1971 Mach 1 H-code.

Luci T Although I didn't score that bad yet not that great, it was fun to see how much I could recall! I wish I had an Mustang we took for granted!

RICK S I was raised on Ford cars and trucks. Any other make just does not do it for me. They seem to pale in comparison, some more than others. Like the Galaxie was the family car (and offered plenty of performance in itself), the Torino and Cobra were the muscle cars, the Mustang was the car everybody could love, and most did by ordering hundreds of thousands of them the first year. GM may sell more cars, but it took 5 lines to do it, and even with two truck lines they could not outsell the mighty F-150, WAY TO GO FORD. You prove everyday that in America it does not take a government bail-out to produce cars.

Thomas Guanella Thomas G. I was at an antique and classic car show not too long ago. I saw a man and his young son get out of their car. The young boy looked at his dad pointing to a 65 Mustang and said "Hey dad there's a Mustang!" Of all the cars and trucks that were at the show, that one stuck out from all the rest. I hope when the 50th Anniversary Mustang comes out, that little boy will be able to say, "Hey dad there's a Mustang!"

Ted I bought my first mustang in 1975; a 1969 gt350 Shelby, which I still own now. It has 108k on the clock and looks as nice as if it only had 38k! Maroon with white interior; 4-speed & 3:25 gears!

Rob S Question 3 is wrong. The Shelby GT350 was launched in 1965 and BOTH the Boss 302 and Boss 429 were launched in the 1969 model year.

Harry H. Servis III Hopefully the 2015 Mustang will be available with the new 5.0 and a V-6 instead of an ecoboost four cylinder engine. A four cylinder would bring back the Mustang II days, which we do not need !!!
10 months(s) ago via
Gary I was agreeing with you carter and yes the 429 did come out in 69 so it should be correct, but I think the key word was "Shelby" GT 350

Stan P Nice to see Ford at least mention the Mustang II for a change. Granted not the best car built, but due to the 70s gas crisis they had to do something. It was good enough to be featured on Charlies Angels at the time. Guess we were too busy looking at Farrah Fawcett Majors then.

Pam Williams I had a 75' mustang ii Ghia with a half landau roof. The car was silver blue with a dark blue landau half roof, I had a V8 302 engine so it had a lot of power. My dad had a green 65' mustang which was fun to drive, I took my driver's test in that car and got a 90. I was 10 when we got it and all 4 of us kids could sit across the back seat. My husband had a red 85' convertible which was fun to drive with the top down.

Rick S Yeah, what carter said! Geesh...Still got my 71 coupe I bought as a high school senior in 1976....it was being restored till the guy restoring it went bankrupt...only after I gave him $15K...no money left to finish it now (I'm actually sick over it)

Casey It looks like the answer to number 3 is wrong. Both the Boss 302 and Boss 429 came out in 1969.
10 months(s) ago via
carter 1969 brought the boss 429 not the GT350, that was 1965
