Responding to the call for greater safety for car drivers and passengers, President Lyndon Johnson signs the US Motor Vehicle Safety Act into law. It mandates seat belts, energy absorbing steering columns and dashboards, warning flashers, and head restraints on all cars sold in the country.

March, 2: one-millionth Ford Mustang is built in less than two years from start of production.

September, 30: Mercury Cougar is introduced by Ford as "America's first luxury/sports car at a popular price".

Oldsmobile launches the front-wheel drive Toronado.

Variable power steering is available on Cadillacs.

GM introduces the industry's first energy absorbing steering column.

GM introduces front seat shoulder belts on 1967 models. (Rear seat shoulder belts are available as a dealer installed option).

Cadillac's front-wheel drive Fleetwood Eldorado is introduced as a 1967 model.

Chevrolet introduces the F-body Camaro as a 1967 model.

Pontiac introduces the Firebird, its third line of cars, as a 1967 model.

The US Senate, Committee on Government Operations, investigates allegations of harassment of Ralph Nader by GM. James M. Roche, GM President, apologizes for the incident in a statement before the Subcommittee on Executive Reorganization.

Persistant financial problems finally forces Studebaker to go out of business.

Chrysler innovation continues in 1966, when engineers modifies engines to create the Clean Air Package, an exhaust emission control system.

The front seat shoulder harness and the separate, self-contained rear window heater/defroster system are among Chrysler safety innovations this year.

Chrysler now owns 76 percent of the French car company Simca, giving it total control.

At the end of the year seat belts become standard in the United States.
