Top down fun in the sun, this stunning turquoise blue Mustang is ready to cruise in style.
Synonymous with starting the age of the ‘pony’ car, Ford’s vice president and general manager Lee Lacocca envisioned a sporty youth-market car based on the existing compact Ford Falcon base. The Mustang was developed in record time on a shoe-string budget and was presented to the public at the World’s Fair on the 17th of April 1964 to much amazement and acclaim. Though Ford had planned 100,000 sales in the first year, over 22,000 orders had been placed on the first day! Ford had unknowingly started the Pony car craze.
The Mustang was initially introduced as a coupe and convertible with either a 170ci straight six, 260ci 2v, V8 and 289ci 4v, V8 and a solid lifter 271hp 289ci 4-barrel staring in June 1964. For the 1965 model year the fastback was introduced along with the enlarged 200ci straight six base engine and 289ci 2v, V8 replacing the 260ci V8 engine. The Mustang also came with a myriad of optional extras furthering its appeal to a broad marketplace from entry level grocery getters to all out-performance monsters. On the 1st March 1966, the one millionth Mustang rolled off the production line.
Incremental updates followed until the first major styling revision in 1967 with the length and width increased by 2.7" and 0.5" respectively; primarily to accommodate the new, larger 390ci big block V8 with 335hp to be the Mustang’s top performing engine.
This genuine C code 289ci 2V Mustang has had one single owner for the last 13 years since arriving in Australia in 2008. Retaining its original Frost Turquoise paint colour, it remains in very good condition for its age. During the current ownership new floors have been professionally welded in, new front shocks, brake system overhaul as well as a new blue ‘pony interior’ matching the external paint colour. A small history file accompanies the Mustang with receipts for all work carried out including importation documentation.
Great for those weekend getaways or Sunday cruises, this Mustang will surely impress.
This vehicle comes with RWC if sold in QLD.
