1965 marked a pivotal and unforgettable year for the American people as it would be the year U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson would officially declare war and send troops into Vietnam to fight against the communist regime. The decision would not be taken well by everyone, as it would spark protests and riots across the country. Many saw this fight as one that was not ours, as it was hard to portray the “good” versus “evil” within Vietnam. As much division as there was that year there would be one thing bringing the American people closer together, the freshly released Ford Mustang. Introduced just eight months prior, the Mustang quickly became America’s sports car. As the war would evolve, so would the Mustang, as it quickly became the face of American-made pride on the road.
