Before the Ford Mustang launched in 1964, executives at General Motors knew they were going to need another sports car other than the Corvair. It became clear when in ’64, 100,000 Ford Mustangs were sold in six months, and half a million by the end of the year. The Corvair on the other hand, was only moving 200,000 yearly.
