The Mustang nobody wants to talk about
The first-generation Ford Mustang started out as a pretty small Falcon sibling, then put on bulk every year until the cartoonish 3000-pound-plus 1973 models. For the 1974 Mustang, Ford switched to the compact Pinto platform... which turned out to be excellent timing, what with the nightmare energy crisis of late 1973.

10-speed automatic could be coming in 2018 Ford Mustang
The F-150 has one, and so does the Chevrolet Camaro. Now it appears the Mustang will also get a 10-speed automatic transmission. By way of Mustang6g.com, a dealership employee spotted the 10-speed in a drop-down menu for Ford's online parts catalog. It suggests the gearbox will be one of the powertrain options in a future Mustang. This information has not been confirmed by Ford, so we can't offer any more details beyond a "yeah probably" hunch.
