After more than 50 years, the Ford Mustang has made its way to the UK. Here are some of history's other landmark Mustangs.
In 1960 Ford boss Lee lacocca had a vision for an American-made sporty four-seater for less than $2,500. This 1962 was an early attempt.
By 1964 the various concepts had evolved into the iconic shape we know and love. Here is the original on display in the Ford Pavilion at the New York World's Fair on April 17.
The Ford Mustang was meant to appeal to Baby Boomers. It also created the "pony car" class -- sports coupes with long hoods and small trunks.
This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 looked brutal, but was beginning to pile on the pounds.
Ford's svelte 1970 Mustang Milano concept had more of a European feel, but sadly never made it into production.
Thanks to the 1973 oil crisis, the muscle car went on a diet -- hence this 1974 Mustang II hardtop.
The 1976 Ford Mustang II Mach 1 bore more than a passing resemblance to the European Ford Capri in side profile.
This 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra was a limited edition version. Only 4,313 were produced.
In 1979, the third generation debuted with a sleek "Euro" design. It was longer and taller -- yet 200 pounds lighter -- than the outgoing Mustang II.
For its 30th anniversary in 1994, the Ford Mustang was dramatically restyled to evoke the car's heritage and performance tradition.
The fifth-generation Mustang reverted to a sleeker fastback and shark-bite front with round headlamps, recalling the first generation models.
In 2009, the Ford Mustang celebrated its 45th birthday.
Ford launched the sixth-generation in 2015, and it went on sale across Europe for the first time in more than 50 years of production.
