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. The brainchild of Lee Iacocca - subsequent savior 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 MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautifully restored Mustang GT stands out both in terms of its excellent condition and desirable factory specification. A close look at the trim tag and chassis number of this striking Mustang Hardtop reveals that the car was completed at the Dearborn, MI-based Ford plant on October 14th, in the first production year for the 1966 Mustang model-year. The car was finished just as it appears today, painted in the era-evoking Emberglo metallic exterior paint, with the interior clothed in Emberglo and Parchment "Luxury" edition trim, including the sporting bucket seats. The 2-Door Hardtop was optioned with the performance oriented 289ci V8 Engine, topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and 4-speed manual transmission. As a GT, the new Mustang received the grill mounted fog lights, GT gas cap, styled steel wheels, twin-tip exhaust system, disc brakes at the front, a wood-rimmed steering wheel and the Rally-Pack gauges adorning the dash area. Today, this sporting Mustang GT retains its desirable factory specification, and displays a wonderful and factory-correct restoration. The car has been judged in AACA competition and must have placed very well there. The engine compartment shows a period-looking Autolite battery, correct tags and decals, and the potent 4-barrel fed, 289ci V8 finished in the correct Ford blue color. Offered here is a stunning example of the classic Pony car.
