The paint appears to be mostly original still and in well above average condition for the year. There are a few (only a few) bubbles along the bottom edge of car very common with all mustangs especially convertibles. The interior of this classy convertible is also in very respectable condition. I believe the bucket seats were swapped out during some type of restoration for a set with the headrests on them. Original interior color was Parchment and not Black. So it seems the entire interior was changed over to what it is today. Looks good and more comfortable. The Rally-Pac may have come with this car originally or not. it is on the column but not hooked up. This Pony was upgraded somewhat probably based on its owner's preferences. the manual 3spd transmission was upgraded to the cruise-o-matic automatic transmission in it today and the interior was changed from parchment to black. We assume the changes were done for comfort and practical reasons as that seems to be the common reason on many. Other gauges appear to function as they should. There are very little blems on this car. The Mustang looks good from every angle and shows extremely well as it was cared for all its life. It is indeed a beautiful car and when it comes to owning a classic car you're proud of. it doesn't get much better than a Red Mustang Convertible! Abit of Mustang history for your reading pleasure. courtesy of Wikipedia. - Enjoy - The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The earliest versions are often referred to as 1964½ models. but VIN coded by Ford and titled as 1965 models. though minor design updates for fall 1965 contribute to tracking 1964½ production data separately from 1965 data (see data below). with production beginning in Dearborn. Michigan on March 9. 1964; the new car was introduced to the public on April 17. 1964 at the New York World's Fair. Executive stylist John Najjar. who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustangfighter plane. is credited by Ford to have suggested the name. Najjar co-designed the first prototype of the Ford Mustang known as Ford Mustang I in 1961. working jointly with fellow Ford stylist Philip T. Clark. The Mustang I made its formal debut at the United States Grand Prix in Watkins Glen. New York on October 7. 1962. where test driver and contemporary Formula One race driver Dan Gurneylapped the track in a demonstration using the second "race" prototype. His lap times were only slightly off the pace of the F1 race cars. An alternative view was that Robert J. Eggert. Ford Division market research manager. first suggested the Mustang name. Eggert. a breeder of quarterhorses. received a birthday present from his wife of the book. The Mustangs by J. Frank Dobie in 1960. Later. the book's title gave him the idea of adding the "Mustang" name for Ford's new concept car. The designer preferred Cougar or Torino (and an advertising campaign using the Torino name was actually prepared). while Henry Ford II wanted T-bird II. As the person responsible for Ford's research on potential names. Eggert added "Mustang" to the list to be tested by focus groups; “Mustang. rdquo; by a wide margin. came out on top under the heading: "Suitability as Name for the Special Car. " The name could not be used in Germany. however. because it was owned by Krupp. which had manufactured trucks between 1951 and 1964 with the name Mustang. Ford refused to buy the name for about US$10. 00 from Krupp at the time. Kreidler. a manufacturer of mopeds. also used the name. so Mustang was sold in Germany as the "T-5" until December 1978. Mustangs grew larger and heavier with each model year until. in response to the 1971–1973 models. Ford returned the car to its original size and concept for 1974. It has since seen several platform generations and designs. Although some other pony cars have seen a revival. the Mustang is the only original pony car to remain in uninterrupted production over five decades of development and revision. As Lee Iacocca's assistant general manager and chief engineer. Donald N. Frey was the head engineer for the T-5 project—supervising the overall development of the car in a record 18 months—while Iacocca himself championed the project as Ford Division general manager. The T-5 prototype was a two-seat. mid-mounted engine roadster. This vehicle employed the German Ford Taunus V4 engine and was very similar in appearance to the much later Pontiac Fiero. It was claimed that the decision to abandon the two-seat design was in part due to the low sales experienced with the 2-seat 1955 Thunderbird. To broaden market appeal it was later remodeled as a four-seat car (with full space for the front bucket seats. as originally planned. and a rear bench seat with significantly less space than was common at the time). A "Fastback 2+2" model traded the conventional trunk space for increased interior volume as well as giving exterior lines similar to those of the second series of the Corvette Sting Ray and European sports cars such as the Jaguar E-Type. The "Fastback 2+2" was not available as a 1964½ model. but was first manufactured on August 17. 1964. The new design was styled under the direction of Project Design Chief Joe Oros and his team of L. David Ash. Gale Halderman. and John Foster[22][23]—in Ford's Lincoln–MercuryDivision design studios. which produced the winning design in an intramural design contest instigated by Iacocca. Favorable publicity articles appeared in 2. 00 newspapers the next morning. the day the car was "officially" revealed. A Mustang also appeared in the James Bond film Goldfingerin September 1964. 1967 Mustang fastbackTo cut down the development cost and achieve a suggested retail price of US$2. 68. the Mustang was based heavily on familiar yet simple components. many of which were already in production for other Ford models. Many (if not most) of the interior. chassis. suspension. and drivetrain components were derived from those used on Ford's Falcon and Fairlane. This use of common components also shortened the learning curve for assembly and repair workers. while at the same time allowing dealers to pick up the Mustang without also having to spend massive amounts of money on spare parts inventories to support the new car line. Original sales forecasts projected less than 100. 00 units for the first year. This mark was surpassed in three months from rollout. Another 318. 00 would be sold during the model year (a record). and in its first eighteen months. more than one million Mustangs were built. Several changes were made at the traditional opening of the new model year (beginning August 1964). including the addition of back-up lights on some models. the introduction of alternators to replace generators. and an upgrade of the V8 engine from 260 cu in (4. 3 l) to 289 cu in (4. 7 l) displacement. In the case of at least some six-cylinder Mustangs fitted with the 101 hp (75 kW) 170 cu in (2. 8 l) Falcon engine. the rush into production included some unusual quirks. such as the horn ring bearing the 'Ford Falcon' logo covered by a trim ring with a 'Ford Mustang' logo. These characteristics made enough difference to warrant designation of the 121. 38 earlier ones as "1964½" model-year Mustangs. a distinction that has endured with purists. Ford's designers began drawing up larger versions even as the original was achieving sales success. and while "Iacocca later complained about the Mustang's growth. he did oversee the 1967 redesign. ". From 1967 until 1973. the Mustang got bigger but not necessarily more powerful. The Mustang was facelifted. giving the Mustang a more massive look overall. Front and rear end styling was more pronounced. and the "twin cove" instrument panel offered a thicker crash pad. and larger gauges. Hardtop. fastback and convertible body styles continued as before. Federal safety features were standard that year. including an energy-absorbing steering column and wheel. 4-way emergency flashers. and softer interior knobs. The 1968 models received revised side scoops. steering wheel. and gasoline caps. Side marker lights were also added that year. and cars built after January 1. 1968 included shoulder belts for both front seats. The 1968 models also introduced a new 302 cu in (4. 9 L) V8 engine.
