As the car we know today, the Mustang was developed between 1962 and 1963 and a wide range of names were considered and used on the various design proposals, including Cougar, Torino, Allegro, Avventura and even Thunderbird II. But it was ‘Mustang’ that made the final cut and it remains tii today without most of the buyers knowing where the name came from.
