In 1964 the Ford Mustang was the official pace car of the
Indianapolis 500. This is a true early (1964-1/2) Ford Mustang
convertible, as evidenced by the "stiffening skirt" along the edges
of the hood, unique headlight buckets (which can be seen on this
example) and factory-equipped with a generator charging system, 260
2V (F-code), large horns mounted down on the frame behind the
radiator, a brakelight pressure switch on the master cylinder, a
center "off" heater fan switch and a generator charge light. These
and other features are unique to the early 1964.5 Mustang. This
Pace Car tribute is finished in the proper white paint and is
equipped with the F-code 260ci V8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor
mated to an automatic transmission. Features include power
steering, rear backup lights, air conditioning, center console, an
electric top and spinner hubcaps. Other identifying features of the
pace car replicas include Pace Car Blue racing stripes up the
center of the hood and "Official Pace Car" decals along the sides
of the car. The center stripes did not get placed on the taillight
panel around the gas cap on coupes, but they did on the dignitary
1965 Ford Mustang
