Specification

The very first Mustang Pony Cars arrived in mid 1964, although Ford designated them as 1965. Because of the numerous differences between the 64 and 65 cars they are now commonly designated as 1964 ½ cars.

 

Ford launched the Mustang in Coupe and Convertible form in 64, the first Fastback or 2+2 did not arrive until 1965. The 260 V8  found in this cars was only available in the early Mustangs and was discontinued in 1965 in favour of the 289 V8, making the 260 powered Mustangs one of the rarest.

 

The Mustang went on to be a huge success, going on to sell more than a million cars by 1966 and has stayed in continuous production to this day.

Model History

This convertible is one of the earliest Mustangs,  it was manufactured in Dearborn on the 7th May 1964.

 

It's tag is 76AM8607E5211 making it a Convertible (76A) in Wimbledon White (M) with Black Crinkle Vinyl interior (86).  We have been told that this was a one owner car until 2015.  The car was owned by a couple in Denver, Colorado, after her husband passed away his wife decided to have the Mustang professionally restored in Golden, Colorado. The car was then sold to a neighbour and we purchased it from them late 2015.

 

This is an exciting car because it is so early and still retains original features such as the generator and rally-pac dials.

Vehicle History

The interior of this car is in good condition.  The front and rear seats were upgraded to a Black Vinyl Pony interior during the recent restoration, although not the original finish they are period correct and look great.  The carpets are in nice condition, we believe that they were also replaced at some point during the life of the car.

 

The steering wheel, dashboard, chrome, door cards etc. are also well looked after with nothing detracting from the overall quality of the interior of this car.  You will be proud to show off this car either top down or top up.

 

 

Interior

Exterior

This Mustang has some really nice touches that, along with the overall finish of the car, make it stand out from the crowd. 

 

The Wimbledon White paint is offset beautifully by the newly replaced Black convertible roof and the sparkling chrome, making this car really pop.  To add a nice touch it has white striped tyres on the period correct pressed steel black and chrome wheels.

 

The glass and lights are in great condition and compliment the finish found on the rest of the car.

 

Overall this car is in great condition and I would rate it at 4 out of 5, with 5 being a garage queen that is trailered to and from shows and not driven.
