transmission and conventional 2.80:1 axle and originally sold in
Dallas, TX at the 'Davis Ford Company' and this is a car that has
reportedly spent most of its life garaged in Texas and in recent
years in Arizona by its previous long time mature owner and is a
true time capsule.Ford's biggest success of the sixties and the
originator of the 'Pony car' concept was essentially a sporty
compact car but with a now legendary long hood and short deck
proportions, built on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drive-train
components, the Ford Mustang was introduced in April 1964 as '65
models and within a year became the fastest selling car of all
time; with these early production cars now carrying special favor!
The upgraded V8 from the Falcon six cylinder engine was the 260
c.i. V8 produced on the same assembly line with other 1964 Fords,
the early models were titled as 1965 models although they were
actually from the 1964 production era. After September 1964 the 260
V8 was dropped in favor of the larger 289 V8 like this particular
car!This car must be driven to be fully appreciated - the original
engine is extremely strong and responsive and the automatic
transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine
temperature always remains cool. The car is simply a superb example
with its original factory 'Silver Blue Metallic' color paint and
'Light Blue amp; White Crinkle Vinyl' standard interior! This is
one very superb example of this very collectible and desirable
early production example of the legendary Ford Mustang in turn-key
ready daily appreciating, daily driving and daily head-turning
