Footnotes

  • 'The Mustang can be tailored to be anything from a gentle in-town ladies' car to an impressive 130mph highway performer. Undoubtedly its almost infinitely variable personality is one of the car's chief attractions...' - William S Stone, 'The Ford Mustang'.

    Ford created a new class of car almost overnight with the introduction of the Mustang sports coupe 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.

    Imported into the UK in 2012, this particular '64 Fastback Coupé has the 4.7-litre V8 engine, which is coupled to automatic transmission. Other noteworthy features include air conditioning, power steering, floor console, aluminium radiator, 'Cobra' valve covers and oil pan, Offenhauser inlet manifold, Edelbrock four-barrel carburettor, electronic ignition, remote-control left-side mirror, and alloy wheels. We are advised that the car had undergone some restoration in the USA, while in the UK it has benefited from the attentions of RAW Autoworks of Bognor Regis. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices, current MoT, and a V5C Registration Certificate. The Mustang has been used sparingly since its arrival in this country, and the private vendor advises us that the car is only being sold because he does not have time to drive it.
