What year was this first ford mustang was shown to the public and what year did it come out?

As the launch of the Ford Mustang approached, Ford was confident its new sporty car was on target. Its job now was to let the country know about this new kind of car. The introduction of what popularly would be known as the Ford Mustang was an encompassing and brilliant marketing blitz. America had scarcely seen anything like it.

Technically, they called the first production Mustang a '64 1/2, not a '65 model year

Concept Mustangs started in 1960. A prototype was shown to the public in 1962 - it was a far cry from the final production Mustang - it was a two seater with a mid mounted V4 engine! Lee Iacocca ordered his design team to lengthen the car and add two rear seats. In 1963, the new prototype Mustang was shown to the public at the U.S. Gran Prix at Watkins Glen.
The Mustang as we know it was released on April 17, 1964.
The rest is history.
