Vehicle Description

The 1964.5 Ford Mustangs are the early batch cars that get collectors excited, and this one is absolutely going to get you thrilled. It has been under the same owner's care for 35 years. He has made solid investments over the decades to make sure this striking color combo stays looking sharp. But at the same time, he's also made sure to respect this coupe's history, right down to the working AM radio. And this early pony car is even a D-code coupe, which kicked off the legendary 289 V8.

Black cars always seem to have a big appeal as classics. So when you can get an early serial number, first-batch Mustang that's also a factory Raven Black coupe, then you know you're looking at something quite desirable. It has been resprayed later in life and has been under decades of good care. So it retains an attractive shine, and the good gloss loves to show off the quality fit of the body panels. Contrasting the darkness, but offering a similar luster, the brightwork looks great on the wraparound bumpers, full trim, and iconic pony badge leading the way. Plus, the styled steel wheels and polished dual exhaust tips have the right sporty look for a D-code coupe. It's an attractive overall package where you'll be impressed with the level of care and style even if you didn't already know it was an early icon.

Only a red car can rival black for desirability, and this one has that, too. It just saves it for the inside. The trim tag tells us this one was born with this awesome color combo, and so you can absolutely understand why this has been held in such high esteem for so many years. In fact, there's believed to be an investment in restoring this interior more than once over the last 35 years. It means you get an inviting car with fresh carpeting, nice upholstery, and a smooth dash. And you'll love the vintage details, like the working courtesy light package, classic rubber floor mats, and the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. So the investments were all about keeping this feeling like a true classic, right down to the grip of the thin steering wheel. The only upgrade you're likely to notice is the armrest cup holder center console. It's a removable piece, but it's there to remind you that the best classics are also great for cruising.

You'll enjoy showing off this special motor, especially with the dark and tidy engine bay. A 289 cubic-inch D-code Mustang is a rare sight. It was the big V8 offered during the first half-year of production. It's usually hard to find a D-code VIN, and so it makes it even more impressive to have this one with an era-correct block and correct-style Autolite four-barrel carburetor. As you look around, you'll also spot other 1964.5-only pieces, like the generator. More than just history, this one was made to be driven. That's why you have nice updated details like a newer battery, newer MDS plug wires, and cast Cobra valve covers. This V8 fires up with an eagerness like a car that wants to hit the road. And it's easy to enjoy this rare pony with any-time driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission.
