First of all I am a Mustang Enthusiast. I have bought, old, estored and have won many trophies over the years with my Mustangs. In 2007 I traded a Ford Dealer my 67 GT Coupe I did for a new 2007 Mustang GT convertible (Fully Loaded) He gave me the new Mustang and 5K pocket change. So I’m just saying if I own it, tis a nice Mustang.
Keep in mind this is a 50 plus year old car, ou are not looking at a concourse trailer queen. But then the price isn’t that either.
To find an early car with all the correct equipment is rare. Many of the early cars were automatics. Correct carpet without foot pad and vinyl from carpet to sill plates. Ready to drive, njoy and show. It’s a real hit at the cruise ins! How often do you see an unmolested 64 ½ Mustang with a 170 C.I. inline 6 cylinder 3 speed manual? Nice driver quality early production car. it’s not very often that you see an early car with all the original equipment intact. Nice single stage original color Rangoon Red with white interior. Floor pans have been repaired as well as having new quarter panels.
I had planned to keep and enjoy it as I have desired an early car with the base 170 with a manual for years but I have a new business venture in the works and the extra cash would help.
Fresh engine and engine bay detail with correct tags. Fresh transmission rebuild by Zumbrota Bearing and Gear. New tires and brakes.
Do your research on the 64 ½ Mustangs. There are many things that are unique to these early cars. This car has all of those unique features intact.
I have this car listed elsewhere, o I do reserve the right to end this auction early. All funds will clear my bank prior to the car leaving my possession PERIOD.
You are welcome to view the car or have a third party inspect it. I will be happy to assist with shipping arrangements. I have a transporter that I’ve worked with over the years. I do have an appraisal on the car I did for insurance purposes when I bought the car. I will share that with serious parties. My reserve is less that that original appraisal but I have spent a lot of money in new parts as well as significant time making things right.
