Inside, Wally and Janice enjoy the most popular Mustang interior ever-the Interior Dcor Group, affectionately known by enthusiasts as the Pony Interior. Underdash, period-correct Ford air conditioning beats sweating in the New Mexico heat.

When we asked Wally and Janice what they like most about their 42-year-old Mustang hardtop, they agreed it was a 50/50 split between styling and the driving experience. Wally adds, "If I had to pick one or the other, I'd go for that unique Mustang styling!"
