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 particular Mustang's VIN code reveals that it left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1965 fitted with the 289ci (4.7-litre) Challenger V8 engine, one of three alternative V8s on offer, which produced 200bhp. First registered in the UK on 23rd November 1966, the car comes with four expired MoT certificates, Swansea V5C document and MoT to May 2012.
