THE FORD MUSTANG

Introduced in April 1964 at the New York World's Fair, and conceived by Lee Iacocca, the Ford Mustang created an overnight nationwide sensation. It offered a winning combination of sporting performance, personal luxury, and crisp styling that spawned a new 'Pony Car' market and encouraged stiff competition from Detroit's other major automakers. Part of the Mustang's appeal was the wide range of options; Ford offered the ability to truly personalize a Mustang. A buyer could specify anything from a relatively tame six-cylinder coupe to a fully equipped convertible with one of three high-performance V-8 engines. While Ford projected first year sales of around 100,000, this mark was reached in a mere four months, making the Mustang's introduction the most successful in automotive history. By 1966, one million Mustangs were being driven on American roads. To this day, the Mustang is the only one of the original pony cars, Camaro and Firebird included, to have remained in continuous production since its unveiling.

Due to its mid-year introduction in 1964, the earliest examples of the Mustang were titled as 1965 models but are known unofficially as 1964 ½ cars.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Prairie Tan Metallic Ford Mustang with a matching interior is fine example of the legendary Mustang's first model year.

Unfortunately, much of the vehicle's early history is unknown, but it was acquired by the museum in the early 1990s from an auction. At the time, it was wearing the same color scheme seen today and presented in equally good condition. Well optioned, this Mustang is fitted with the 260ci motor, automatic transmission, and even air conditioning.

An effortlessly attractive model, the Mustang is synonymous with youth culture and American freedom. With the top dropped and the V8 rumbling, its next owner is sure to spend many happy miles behind the wheel.
