Simple. Wholesome. Timeless. For classic car buffs, these adjectives are worthy goals but hard to find in the real world. Welcome to MotoeXotica Classic Cars, where we are pleased to present this true early1964 Ford Mustang Convertible finished in rare Sunlit Yellow Built in Fords Dearborn, Michigan factory on May 14, 1964, a month after the car launched at the Worlds Fair, it is the embodiment of those three words.
Finished in its factory correct Sunlight Yellow (code V), a color only offered in1964 . The cars paint and trim are great overall condition, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The ponys windows are clear and intact while its lights are hazefree and look good. This Mustangs bodywork is straight and solid, the black, vinyl, powerfolding top is in very good order, the cars engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery looks new and the chrome blade bumpers look fantastic and fit tightly to the body.
Under the hood is Fords base engine, a 170 CID Thriftpower inline sixcylinder (vin code U) with a onebarrel carburetor, mated to a threespeed manual transmission (code 1) with a 3.50:1 differential (code 5). Mustangs did not get any more simple or wholesome than this one and this car is one of about 32,900 examples fitted with a sixcylinder engine during its first year.
This car rolls on General American whitewall tires, size 185/75R14 at all four corners. Each tire wraps around a steel wheel topped by a factory wheel cover.
Inside, the standard black crinkle vinyl (code 96) interior is in overall great condition. The front buckets and rear bench are in very good shape, as is the matching black carpet while the threespoke black and chrome steering wheel looks very groovy. The black, padded instrument panel and inner door panels are in very good order and echo the rest of the interiors theme. Completing the interior is a factory AM radio and the Ford Falcon gauge cluster that is only found in the early Mustangs.
Since it was introduced four months before the normal start of the 1965 production year and manufactured alongside 1964Ford Falconsand 1964Mercury Comets, the earliest Mustangs are widely referred to as the 1964 model. Nevertheless, all 1964 cars were given 1965 U.S. standardVINsat the time of production, and with limited exception to the earliest of promotional materials were marketed by Ford as 1965 models. The rush into production included some unusual quirks, such as the horn ring bearing the Ford Falcon logo covered by a trim ring with a Ford Mustang logo. These characteristics made enough difference to warrant designation of the 121,538 early versions as 1964 Mustangs, a distinction that has endured with purists.
The lowend model hardtop used a Ucode 170CIDstraightsix engine borrowed from the Falcon, as well as a threespeedmanual transmission. Standard equipment for the early 1965 Mustangs included black front seat belts, a glove box light and a padded dash board. Production began in March 1964 and official introduction following on April 17 at the1964 Worlds Fair.
Documentation includes a copy of Chiltons Mustang Repair Guide from 1965 to 1973. Competition to this Mustang in 1965 was limited to Plymouths Barracuda, which launched 16 days before the Mustang.
