For Sale: 1964 Ford Mustang in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Hardtop

There were several names proposed before the Mustang was given its famous moniker. These included Cougar, Panther, Colt, Stiletto, Comet, Allegro and many more. Even Ford couldn't have predicted how successful the car would be. On the opening day, 22,000 units were sold, and dealerships were taking waiting lists for several days after.

For consignment, a 1964-1/2, (sic, see below), model of the Mustang. This is verifiable as an early model as it sports several cues of the 1964-1/2 model that were refined on the 1965. Some of these are a large horn within the engine compartment, a generator in lieu of an alternator, specific louvering in the radiator support, no carpeting filling the gap between the rocker panel and the sill plate, and a center off fan position for the heater control. Yupperz, this is a 1964-1/2, with the window sticker, invoice, buyers order form and warranty car as well as extensive maintenance and restoration documentation.

Exterior
Guardsman Blue in a respray done with the body on the frame is bathing smoothed steel panels for this car. From the hockey stick cove in the doors to the front venting to cool the battery, this car is just beautifully done. This clean machine presents with beautifully polished chrome trimmings for the cove, bumpers, and window surrounds. A 260 badge is on the front quarter, and the iconic triple inverted V tail light clusters are gracing either side of the rear panel. On all 4 corners are the 6-blade fan-like wheel covers, standard fare for most Mustangs of the time, and wrapped in thin whitewall tires.

Interior
A flip of the door, and more blue vinyl covers the interior. On those door panels are a large clip style, (as opposed to screw on for the actual 1965), handle to open the door, another 1964-1/2 cue. Beautifully preserved low back buckets are up front and are in excellent condition. These show in tuck and roll insert and smooth bolster form with some chrome trimmings on the edges to hide the hinge. In back is a matching bench also with nicely preserved blue vinyl. The dash is super clean with the dual eyebrow dash top under which is the horizontal speedometer flanked by the two round temp and fuel gauges, warning lights and odometer in the black panel. This car is optioned with the rally pack of gauges added to the steering column. These are providing engine RPM, and a chronograph clock. Sitting proudly in the middle of the hump is a center console with black and aluminum bands running through it. It meets the dash in the center where we see temp sliders. An aftermarket radio now provides AM/FM and cassette capabilities and fits nicely into the original spot. In its midsection is the long stem manual shifter. Original slightly faded and somewhat stained carpet floods the floors, and a white headliner very nicely tight is up top for the interior.

Drivetrain
A 260ci V8 with a plethora of new parts installed over time yields a power plant that is pretty much rebuilt, but retaining its factory installed status. It presents very nicely with non-corroded bolt ons, sky blue valve covers and air cleaner cover. No hints of any oiling or leaks at the seals, and this mill is buttoned up. A rebuilt and correct 3-speed manual transmission is on back. The rear axle is a Ford 8 inch 3.00 conventional installation from the factory.

Undercarriage
Well preserved is the buzzword for this undercarriage, with some surface rust, plenty of patina and some light oiling from the rear pumpkin showing. Solid toe kicks and floor pans, rockers frame and a newer gas tank. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners, and suspension is nice and tight.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up, and the test track proved to be no challenge for this car. It accelerated smoothly, steered easily and cruised with ease at highway speed. The clock is not operating and the car pulls to the left when braking.

So, what's the difference between a '64-1/2 and a '65 Mustang? Not much and yet everything. From 50 feet away, they look the same; close up, they host quite a number of differences . The '64-1/2 Mustangs have always been '65 Mustangs-always. As enthusiasts, we call them "'64-1/2" because it's easier to say, but it's also a cult thing. Early '65 Mustangs have the distinction of being the first block of Ponies ever produced. They were an integral part of the Mustang madness that swept the world in 1964. And if you have a "'64-1/2" built at Dearborn, that makes it even more significant in the relative scheme of things, because it was born in the motherland. Otherwise it's an early 1965! This car was actually ordered and delivered to the owner prior to a physical showroom model showing up to the dealer, so it's an early early version!
