The Ford Mustang, in a way, defines timelessness.
Think about it: Every generation of the Mustang has perfectly embodied the style and attitude of its era. The first generation was light, spindly; by 1969, it had grown into a brawny, bold muscle car. The 1980s Fox Body wore the creased, geometric styling that was a hallmark of the decade.
The mid-1970s Mustang, like the era itself, is best left forgotten.
Even today's Mustang, while it nods to the retro design themes of its forefathers, is a thoroughly modern shape, with detailing that puts it at the forefront of current automotive design.
Thankfully, some things have remained throughout. The Mustang has always had two doors and rear-wheel drive, with a V8 under the hood and a stick-shift available in the middle.
We love Donut Media's evolutionary morphs, and this one is another winner. It's fascinating to see how much has changed over the years—and more impressively, how many elements have stayed constant throughout.
