Ford Division Design Chief from the
studio that created the initial clay model for the 1964 1/2 Mustang.
Mr. Oros' striking (and now famous) design was a key element in
securing the internal approval of the program. 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."
Mr. Oros received the Industrial Design Society Design Award for
design of the 1965 Mustang.
