1964 1/2 Ford Mustang 'D' Code Convertible 4bl 289-V8 Automatic Transmission.
All of the mustangs made at the beginning of production were hardtops and convertibles mostly with either 6 cylinder or the base V-8 production engines. This particular Mustang is an extremely RARE Mustang as it had the most powerful engine you could get until Ford came out with the solid lifter 271HP motor in June 1964. This particular car has the 289 with a 4 BBL carb producing 210 HP. This designation of D code was only used for the 64 ½ year cars. There are numerous items on the '64 cars that are not on any other car. The most prevalent are the mounting of the cars horns to the frame rails of the car and the fact that they are much larger than the regular Mustang horns.
The interior is all original right down to the rare 1964 1/2 seat belts (FoMoCo). This is a NUMBERS MATCHING CAR and has the original factory RALLY PAC. The carpet has been replaced, as well as the convertible top and gas tank.
This past year, the transmission has been serviced, new floor pans installed, brakes, gas line, radiator rodded out, and a new timing belt.
This car was purchased by my father in 1982 from the original owner. I have the original owners manual and warrantee card. Odometer has 65,000 original miles. The car needs attention. The undercarriage is mostly rusted out there are some dents in the chrome bumpers.
