When Ford launched the Mustang in April 1964, the company marketed it with a low base price as the ideal second car for suburban families.  Unlike most other entry-level cars up to that point, the original Mustang looked sporty even with no options added.  Since it was introduced four months before the normal start of the 1965 production year and manufactured alongside 1964 Ford Falcons and 1964 Mercury Comets, the earliest Mustangs are widely referred to as the 1964½ model by enthusiasts.  Nevertheless, all “1964½” cars were given 1965 U.S. standard VINs at the time of production, and – with limited exception to the earliest promotional materials – were marketed by Ford as 1965 models. The low-end model hardtop used a “U-code” 170 cubic inch inline-six engine borrowed from the Falcon and a three-speed manual transmission. With a base price of 2,368, standard equipment included black front seat belts, a glove box light, and a padded dashboard. Production began in March 1964, and Mustang Serial Number One (5F08F100001) was sold on April 14, 1964, at the George Parsons Ford dealership in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. Official introduction followed on April 17 at the 1964 World’s Fair. The V8 models were identified with a badge on the front fender that spelled out the engine’s cubic inch displacement (“260” or “289”) over a wide “V.” This emblem was identical to the one on the 1964 Fairlane.

The 1964 1/2 Mustang Coupe available in this features a repainted exterior in its original shade of Wimbledon White and its original parchment interior. We will have more information on the particulars of this Mustang very soon, so please check back often.
