Footnotes

  • Ford created a new class of car almost overnight with the introduction of the Mustang sports coupé part way through the 1964 season, catching the rest of the US auto industry off guard. Brainchild of Lee Iacocca - subsequent saviour of the Chrysler Corporation – the Mustang is one of the most remarkable automotive success stories of modern times and arguably the pinnacle of his long career with Ford. Aimed at the affluent young, for whom a car was as much a lifestyle statement as means of transport, the Mustang succeeded brilliantly, achieving sales in excess of a quarter million by the end of ’64. This remarkable debut was followed by a staggering 524,791 sales in 1965, earning Ford a fortune.
    The secret of the Mustang’s success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder ‘economy’ to V8-powered luxury, while customers could choose from an extensive range of factory options, with the result that seldom are two Mustangs identical.
    This automatic transmission Mustang left Ford’s San Jose in 1967 plant fitted with a 289ci (4.7-litre) engine The latter has since been replaced by a rebuilt 302ci (5.0-litre) unit, which is basically similar but has a longer stroke and the added advantage of running on unleaded fuel. The car remained in California until the summer of 2000 when a UK Mustang dealer imported it into this country where it was restored and re-sprayed. Its previous owner then had the Mustang shipped to Guernsey where it was purchased by the vendor in 2001 and taken back to Kent. Since acquisition, the car has been kept garaged and driven only in summer months, covering approximately 2,000 miles. New parts fitted since 2001 include the exhaust system, radiator, brake shoes and cylinders, shock absorbers (x4) and rear leaf springs, while Torque Thrust II alloy wheels shod with B F Goodrich tyres are an attractive enhancement. Finished in Acapulco Blue with matching interior, the car is presented in generally good condition and offered with expired MoTs dating back to 2001, Swansea V5 document and current road fund licence/MoT.
