1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible Manual Transmission V8
Vehicle Description

1965 Ford Mustang

Gallery Junction is pleased to offer this 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible.Lee Iacocca, Ford’s then General Manager, commissioned his design team to come up with a two seated roadster that would compete with popular European cars as well as the American Chevy Corvette Sting Ray. A design team headed by assistant manager and engineer Donald Frey was formed and the new project was titled the “T-5”. After some consideration it was agreed that a cross breed roadster and Ford Falcon would be more suitable to modern demands. After all, the Ford Thunderbird, which was Ford’s most recent two seater car, did not fair as well as expected in current car markets. The T-5 was given a new design commission and Lee Iacocca gives much credit to the efforts of stylist David Ash for making the renamed “Mustang” a smashing success.
The example offered here comes from long term 20+ year ownership. It was built early in the run at the Dearborn, MI plant and equipped with the 260ci V8 and 3 Speed manual transmission. The car runs and drives well. It is believed to be numbers matching throughout.
