About

Originally Poppy Red with Black interior, now is Metallic Red (House of Colors) with a Palimino interior. When I purchased it in 2004, it had a pearl top coat applied and had ponies painted on the sides. It had a partial restoration of body and sub-frame done in 2007. Also replaced all rubber seals, gaskets, carpets, trunk liner and tires while it was in the shop.
This car was built in Dearborn, MI on April 8th, 1964 which makes it one of the few 1964 1/2 Coupes with the factory 289 4V and 4-speed manual transmission combination. The engine modifications (listed below) were done before I owned it and it was a participant of the 1991 Ford Motorsport Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, PA. I tried to verify this with Maple Grove Raceway but, they do not keep records for that far back.

Comments

  • With all the work done on this car, someone will be getting him/herself one heck of a deal at that price!

    Ford/Mustang fans: If you’re in the market for an early Mustang, take a look through this car’s album. I guarantee you’ll be impressed!

  • Thanks Jim for your comments on the restoration! Just so you know, I didn’t drive it in the snow, I just took a picture when they were shuffling cars around in the shop.
