On March 9, 1964, the first Ford Mustang, a Wimbledon White convertible, rolled off the production line in Dearborn, Mich.

Instead of being kept by Ford Motor Co., the car was mistakenly sold to Canadian airline pilot Stanley Tucker, who later agreed to trade it back to Ford in exchange for the one-millionth Mustang.

The Mustang joined the list of ‘Most Influential Vehicles’ of the past 50 years.
