The Oklahoma Mustang Club started meeting in early 1978 and was incorporated on January 3, 1985. We received our official charter into the Mustang Club of America on May 5, 1984. There have been a lot of changes over the years. We have seen the Mustang hobby go from a few people to the two-hundred plus members our club now boasts. Our club's first car shows were nothing more than a few Mustang hobbyists getting together and showing off their cars. This has grown to the point where some of our members own eight Mustangs and some others only own some of the parts for a Mustang. But our common bond is the love of the FORD MUSTANG and the over forty years of pleasure it has brought its owners. Several of our members live in Mustang, Oklahoma (where Ford Motor Company unveiled the redesigned 1994 Mustang) Our club sponsors several car shows throughout the year. The club sponsors a local charity located in Norman, OK called A.B.L.E. (Able Bodies Learning to Excel).
History of the Mustang
From:The Complete book of Collectible Cars ©1987
Ford's biggest success of the '60's, originator of the "ponycar"
concept. Essentially a sporty compact with long-hood/short-deck proportions
based on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drivetrain components. Phenomenally
successful a generation ago, it is still avidly pursued by collectors today,
many of whom grew up with the car and are now reaching their peak earning years.
Introduced in advance of the 1965 model year in April 1964. The fastback was
added six months after launch, at which time some engine and equipment shuffling
took place. Modest appearance and options alterations marked the carryover '66
version. Despite cramped rear seat accommodations, still a practical everyday
car for the '80's, particularly with one of the thrifty sixes. A plethora of
available factory accessories and option packages means there's no "typical"
example of the breed, but cars with the "hi-po" 289 V8, manual shift, the GT
package, or all three are worth searching for. Unfortunately, they're also in
greater demand than tamer models, and bring correspondingly higher asking
