There is a lot of intel floating about right now about the forthcoming Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary, and it’s got everyone stepping back to reflect upon just how it is the pony car made it to where it has arrived, to date. Between artists’ renderings, captivating spy shots, CGI enhancements, and the sort, no one is short-changed when it comes to imaginary speculation about what the next chapter of the Mustang shall bring in the 2014 and 2015 model years.

This time around, we’re happy to pass along a series of design concepts (sketches) which Ford kicked around the sandbox before eventually pinning the right tail on the donkey. From the Mustang I sports car concept of 1962, to the design of 50 years later, this piece straight from ford definitely gives a solid kick towards what has been and what could be…you just have to sift through the finer details.

From Sketch to Production – The Evolution of the Ford Mustang badge

During the process of designing the new sporty car that would eventually become the 1965 Ford Mustang, the various design proposals went under many names including Avanti, Allegro and Torino. Even the design by Gale Halderman that was chosen as the basis for the production model was originally called Cougar until the Mustang name was chosen.

The Mustang name first appeared on the Mustang I sports car concept of 1962 and it featured a galloping horse badge conceived by designer Phil Clark. The emblem was evolved further for the production car in 1964 and has continued to receive updates in the nearly 50 years since.
