1964 Ford Mustang 1/2 Coupe is one of the earliest production run of the iconic car. More importantly, this unique find is ready to go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions on 24th of May. This muscle car is regarded as the purest of all Mustangs and is a very rare car. Its price is estimated between $23,764 to $30,562 USD (£14,000 to £18,000). The car was originally built at Ford‘s Dearborn Michigan plant on 26th of June 1964. What is really unique about it is that it still houses its original 260CI V8 Engine and Cruise-O-Matic transmission.
The car was ordered and then produced with one-off array of factory fitted options including power steering, power brakes, rally-pac and AM radio with rear speaker with a very rare Studio Sonic Sound System. Its exterior is in Rangoon Red color, while the interior is in Red Beauty one.
In fact, the sale of the car comes amid the 50th anniversary of the original and greatest ‘pony car’ as well as the launch of a new 2015 Ford Mustang. This muscle car was a defining motorcar for Ford and an iconic symbol of the American Dream. Thanks to its stunning looks it has become one of the greatest American cars of all time.
Another interesting fact is that on the first day of launch – on 17th of April 1964 at the New York Worlds Fair, Ford secured over 22,000 orders. It had everything that customers could dream of: sporty looks, factory options, economy but with performance alternatives with the V8 engines. Fifty years after the initial customer’s excitement, this car still seems to delight.
