The Ford Mustang has been around since 1964-1/2, and is still going strong today. When it comes to mustang model kits, every year has been represented in model form, so you can build the entire lineage from start to finish. (Revell recently came out with a 2015 kit, so you're good to go!)

From AMT, Revell, MPC, even Maisto, scale model companies have got on board to produce some striking wide variety of different Ford Mustang kits for you to build.

Most of the variations of Ford Mustangs have been kitted in one form or another. From the Caroll Shelby GT versions, to the Mach 1 series, to different Cobra Mustang designations over the years. The model companies keep going strong, bringing us the scale models we all love to build.

The Boss 302, to the big boy 428 Super Cobra Jets and Boss 429, the models kits of mustangs keep you satisfied with many alternatives to engine sizes, wheels, and other combinations to swap parts with and build the kind of Ford Mustangs you want.

The scales vary, from 1/24, 1/25, to larger scale 1/12 and 1/16 kits. So there's a size and scale for everyone.

Which Mustang series is your favorite?

1964-1966 - The first years for the new body style, with minor changes in 1966.

1967-1968 - More body changes, but the same basic platform. The big block Ford engines became optional as well during these years.

1969-1970 - New body designs, same platform more or less. Exotic V8 engines like the Boss 302 and Boss 429 became available. The Mach 1 versions was gaining popularity too.

1971-1973 - Radical body changes from previous Mustangs. Same basic platform. There were a lot of options, such as the Ford Drag pack, along with many Hi-Po parts choices. The 351C made it's debut. The body style was famous from James Bond's Diamonds are Forever to Gone in 60 Seconds.

1974-1978 - The writing was on the wall after the gas scare of 1973, and smaller cars were in. The Ford Mustang downsized to a compact car, with a 4-cylinder ending up in most of them. There was a Cobra version, which had a V8 (302) as an option. But it lacked any real horsepower. The body style was made famous by Charie's Angels.

1979-1993 - The famous Fox body Mustangs. Introduced in 1979, it was available with GT styling, a 302 with a 2-barrel (and later 4-barrel), factory slapper bars, and dual exhaust. The car kept getting better each year, and with the 1987-1993 being the most popular, they had the new Ford EFI 302 with a hot roller camshaft and more horsepower.

Ford also snuck in their SVO version Mustang in 1984-1986, which had an intercooled Turbo 4-cylinder, Traction Loc rear with 3.73 gearing, a Hurst shifter, a "Dead" pedal on the floor, KONI shocks and struts, and five lug wheels with rear disc brakes.

1994-2004 - All new body styling. Introduction of the 4.6L, as the last Mustangs were available with the popular 302s. The Cobra versions had rear IRS, a first for the Mustangs.

2005-2014 - All new body style, which has a 'retro' look, harkening back to the original Ford Mustangs from the 1960's and early 1970s.

2015 - Up - New body redesign. Paddle shifters available as an option. The Mustangs get a new rear IRS.

Every year has been represented by a model kit, though accuracy, especially on the 1971-1973 years, may not be the best. With Revell's 2015 kit, you can now follow the lineage from begining to end.

Note that Carroll Shelby models were available for many years, though not continuously. The 1965-1966 years for sure, but also the more modern 2005-2014 models, which are very well known and popular today. There were also the Mclaren Mustangs (with Mercury Capri body parts), and the Saleen versions for several specific years. There were aslo special Jack Roush versions.

Everyone wanted a piece of the Ford Mustang business. It's the original American Pony car.

So there are plenty of versions for model kits, and plenty of ways to swap engines, parts, and other things to build the Mustang you like best.

Keep you pony stable full with these great model kits of Ford Mustangs in your collection today!
