I was in high school when the Car was named ...and I'm 69 now... you do the math.
When Ford opened a contest among their dealerships offering a prize of A HUGE (20" TV) and $10,000 to NAME Their New (competition to the Thunderbird, Sports Model, Fette Ford (located along the same stretch of highway our school was located on in Clifton New Jersey) the owner's teen aged daughter was a member of the internationally famous Clifton Mustang Band, he simply submitted the name and an image (Our School Logo) from her band uniform and the rest (as they say) was history.
You can just catch the image of the logo on the field itself
Clifton Mustang Marching Band - 11/12/16 (West Milford Tattoo - 2016)
