Vehicle Description

1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible

Since it was introduced 4 months before the normal start of the

1965 production year the earliest Mustangs were referred to as the

1964.5 model by enthusiasts. Nevertheless, all 1964.5 cars were

given a 1965 standard VIN at the time of production. Production

began in March 1964 and serial number 1, (5F08F100001), was sold on

April 14th, 1964 at the George Parsons Ford dealership in St.

Johns Newfoundland, Canada. The official introduction followed on

April 17th at the 1964 Worlds Fair. The gentleman whose name will

be forever written in Mustang history was Captain Stanley Tucker.

He walked into George Parsons Ford and found an all too eager

salesman who sold him the car....3 days before the model officially

went on sale. The rest, as they say, is history.

While all first year Mustangs were titled as 1965s the early

production cars are referred to as 1964.5 cars. Slight differences

are noted between them and the standard production 1965 Mustang and

this Mustang has all the correct early run parts on it. Owned by

our consignor and garage kept for the last 15 years, this potent

pony has been treated to a recent mechanical inspection, with the

results noted in our description. Add in some upgrades and this is

a car meant to be driven and enjoyed, not trailered from show to



An older Rangoon Red respray covers the exterior of this car and

presents with a few flaws, dry spots and texture on some of the

surfaces. The restored metal is mostly straight with the front and

rear quarter panels looking nearly factory fresh. Thin mustache

like chrome bumpers and bumperettes present well with a deep

reflective shine. The corralled horse within vertical and

horizontal chrome spears fills in the honeycomb style grille and

looks just fab. All gaps are good, and the freshman year Mustang

cove is showing off proudly. Bringing up the tail end are the

iconic tai lights and smiling thin chrome bumper below. 14-inch

chrome styled steel wheels adorn the corners and are wrapped in

thin whitewall radial rubber that is old enough to deem



Looking inside we are met with door panels covered in pristine red

vinyl tuck and roll with red textured steel door frames and shiny

chrome window cranks and door releases. Red standard buckets are up

front and a rear bench that are keenly done with no marks or tears

and have recently been replaced. A red center console races between

the seats and looks just fab with its black textured and ribbed

aluminum inlay. A chrome handled black knobbed shifter can be seen

growing from the console and is well within the drivers reach. A

dual eyebrowed dash pad sits atop the red full metal jacket dash

which contains the original instrument cluster, various chrome

knobs and sliders, aftermarket AM/FM radio, and glove box door. A

wood rimmed 3 spoke wheel is perched atop the fixed steering column

giving a nice touch to the basic instrumentation. Very clean red

carpet floods the floors and is protected by red carpeted mats with

pony logos to finish out our tour.
