The Ford Mustang was released in 1964 as an early 1965 model year car, which owners affectionately call the 1964 and 1/2 Mustang...and the world would never be the same. It was the fun/sporty alternative to the boring cars from the big three and with optional V8 power, disc brakes, and good looks, it was a game changer. Find this 1964.5 Ford Mustang here on eBay bidding for $2,025 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Gig Harbor, WA. This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!
This 64 and 1/2 coupe is one of the 92,000 units built in the first few months of 1964 Mustang production (sold as 1965 model year cars). Power comes from a 170 cubic inline Thriftpower inline-6 that squeezes out 105 horsepower from a 1-bbl carb...not exactly smokey burnout material, but the Mustang was light and still sporty compared to almost anything else on a dealers lot in 1964.
