1964 Ford Mustang
1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible
4-speed with Air Conditioning and Rally Pac!
This is a 1964 1/2 Mustang...NOT a '65, there are some distinctdifferences between the two. A legit 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible optioned like this one is very rare and collectible!
Up until spring of last year this Mustang convertible was a lifelong Arizona car. I accidentally stumbled across it while looking at another classic car out in the area, it was in storage in a private collector's overflow building. If not for that day it would still be sitting there as it was not for sale. I got lucky and hit the guy on the right day and was able to talk him into selling.
This is a D-code 289 4 barrel Mustang convertible. From what I have been told by a number of Mustang collectors is that most 1964 1/2 convertibles were built with either the smaller 260 V8 or a six cylinder engine. When you factor in that this Mustang convertible is also a 4-speed manual transmission car, you really cut the production number down. Throw in the fact that this 289 4bbl 4-speed convertible was also ordered with air conditioning and the production number plummets to an extremely low number. Not done yet though, this early Mustang is also a Rally Pac option car.
As you would expect from a lifelong Arizona car, this Mustang is extremely sound and rust free. I can not imagine that you would be able to find a nicer never restored survivor. The undercarriage is incredibly clean and unaltered. Almost every part on this car is an original Ford factory installed part, I can find only a few basic wear or tune-up items that are not original to the car. At some point in the past the car was repainted white (original color combination was Caspian Blue with blue interior). While not perfect, the white paint still shines up very nice. The car does need a new convertible top and new carpet. All in all though, the car looks great.
I was told by the longtime owner before me that both the engine and 4-speed transmission in the car are the originals that the car was built with, I believe that to be true. All I did once I got the car home was give the engine a quick basic tune-up and it fired right up. The car runs, drives, and stops very nice. The engine sounds great and has plenty of power. The power top works as it should, and incredibly the A/C still works!
This is not your run of the mill first generation Mustang.
Very few 1964 1/2 Mustangs were configured like this one:
- D-code 289 4bbl Engine
- 4-speed Manual Transmission
- Air Conditioning
- Rally Pac
This is great opportunity to get one of the first Mustangs ever built, and get one that was optioned with both style and performance in mind. If we could go back in time this is exactly how most of us would order one of those early Mustangs!
The car is in mypossessionin my garage. You are more than welcome to come and inspect the car in person, as with any car purchase, I recommend you do that. If you can't make it to inspect the car yourself, you are certainly welcome to send a representative to inspect the car for you.
I have a clear title for the car in my name.
