3. Joe Oros: Ford Studio Design Chief
Joe Oros is credited with creating the initial clay model for the 1964½ Mustang. His striking design is said to have been the creative force that won over decision-makers at Ford, thus securing the internal green light to move forward with the Mustang project. Oros, who was a Ford Division Design Chief, received an Industrial Design Institute award for his work on the original Mustang.
Oros was also in charge of the Ford Studio that had won the open styling competition for the Mustang. His concept, called the Cougar, featured a wide stance, long hood, short rear deck and side sculpting that went on to become a Mustang trademark. More importantly, his design was a key ingredient in the overwhelming success in the market that is now central to Mustang lore. The Mustang was the first automobile to win the Tiffany Gold Medal for excellence in American design. The inscription read, “Mustang has the look, the fire and flavor of one of the great European road cars. Yet it is as American as its name and as practical as its price.�
From clay to production model, Oros noted that in his career, no car had ever been so little changed from original design to production. He was also adamant that the production car be called Cougar, which had been the codename for the car during development.

But the two things that caught my eye were the loss of Carroll Shelby in May and Joe Oros in August.

...
Joe Oros was the Chief Designer of the Ford Thunderbird, which was also Motor Trend's Car of the Year. Oros did such a great job with the T-Bird, he was designated as the Chief Stylist for Ford's newest project... the Mustang.
In August, Oros died at the age of 96. Shortly before his death, when he was being driven around town, he could be seen "eye-balling" Mustangs. Rumor has it every time he saw a Mustang, he wanted to inspect it for flaws.
Oros was heard at the age of 92 saying "It makes me feel proud every time I see one... After all of these years, Mustang has never lost its luster."
