In 1964 production was in high gear for the newly designed 1965
Ford Mustang. The highly anticipated Ford Mustang was honored by
being named the Indianapolis pace car of 1964 and Ford stepped it
up to accommodate the rising status of their new design. A special
convertible version was adapted as the pacer. It was manufactured
in white with a blue stripe on the hood and trunk. Ford also made
230 extra pace cars, available in convertible and hard top. The 64
1/2 convertibles had a 289cid engine, and the hardtops came with
the less powerful 260 V-8. Thirty five convertibles were sold to
dealerships and 195 hardtops were given out in dealer contests held
in April of 1964.
