1964 Ford Mustang ConvertibleWe're all on the lookout for a 1964.5 Ford Mustang convertible, but this is a standout amongst those rare few. It was born a D-code 289 car, and the research shows all the right signs of that rare block is still under the hood today! Plus, a ton of awesome features and the rare color combo makes this quite a distinctive icon that's up for grabs.
The factory-correct Wimbledon White is a great way to represent this historic car. After all, a white drop-top was used to help debut the Mustang line. Plus, you can tell they understood the significance of this car with the quality of the respray. So this sunshine-friendly convertible looks great out in the daylight. The chrome bumpers and trim also have the look of quality. This car keeps its appearance quite correct, right down to the wheel covers, and it's easy to understand why the look wants to remain stock. With only around 28,830 convertibles produced during the short 1964.5 run, it's one of the rarest versions of the first-gen Mustang.
The black roof has a timeless contrast against the white paint, but for true distinction, you'll want to power it down to reveal the crisp blue interior. The seats, carpeting, door panels, dash, center console, and steering wheel are all part of the sea of blue and the condition is a reminder of this car's commitment to quality. There's even a blue convertible boot to properly complete the full upholstery package. There are a few well-integrated upgrades. Some are easier to notice, like the blue over-the-shoulder seatbelts. Other upgrades are subtler, like the period-style air conditioning now runing on R134a (likely needs a recharge.) And this significant classic was meant for driving with front bucket seats, the grippy steering wheel, and this even has the desirable Rally-Pac with tach.
When you open the hood, the golden valve covers signal this is something special. This is a D-code convertible, and so Ford allowed the 289 under the hood. That means this example help to both launch the Mustang name and the mighty 289's reputation. That's why we're thrilled to have what's believed to still be the original motor under the hood. It's a correct 1964 D-code with a build date two weeks before the car. You'll find other 1964.5 correct pieces, like the generator, so this really represents it history nicely. More than just a collectable, it's also great to drive. The V8 fires up readily as it inhales from the four-barrel carburetor. It feels confident out on the road, and there are even nice driving features like the correct three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an exceptionally rare pony car that's also a great one to enjoy the drive. So if you love a classic you'll take everywhere and talk to everyone, call today!
