Fords biggest success of the sixties and the originator of the Pony car concept was essentially a sporty compact car but with a now legendary long hood and short deck proportions, built on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drive-train components, the Ford Mustang was introduced in April 1964 as 65 models and within a year became the fastest selling car of all time; with these early production cars now carrying special favor and becoming fondly known as 64 1/2 models by Mustang enthusiasts!

Recently purchased from the family of the original Little Old Lady from Santa Barbara owners and obviously always well kept, always garaged and looked after and mostly all original apart from one repaint in its original Sahara Beige color. The car has factory power steering and must be driven to be fully appreciated - the engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no noticeable oil leaks and the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
The car is still very striking with one very professional and still absolutely presentable repaint in its original Sahara Beige factory color paint and the original Black Rosetta Vinyl standard interior is still in fabulous condition with no noticeable flaws and a steering wheel and an original dashboard that looks as it must have when it left the factory floor over 55 years ago!
