I did not know that.
but the question was, where was it first seen by public and part two, put on sale. Put on sale is a bit of a trick question.

The first Mustang sold to a retail customer, Ford says, was purchased by Chicago schoolteacher Gail Brown on April 15, 1964, two days before the official on-sale date. Brown, who became Gail Wise when she married her husband, Tom, still owns the car.

Really, Wow, that is interesting as well.
But we still need an answer to when it was shown and released for sale.

It was first unveiled to the World on top of the Empire State Building. They had to dis-assemble it to get it up there, where they re-assembled it.

You are correct, April 17 New York world fair, at the Ford Pavilion.
They went on sale the same day at dealers.
As we all know, it is done very different today.
The unveiling is top secret and cars often can't be order for months after this.

You win, so Post the next Mustang trivia question?

Didn't even have to google that one. One of the neat things about the MAA run was they arranged a very good dinner with a very interesting speaker who's name escapes me but he had a lot of neat stories about the Mustang and it's development and Mr Shelby
