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 early 1964 ½ Ford Mustang Convertible finished in rare Sunlit Yellow! Built in Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan factory on May 14, 1964, a month after the car launched at the World’s Fair, it is the embodiment of those three words.
Finished in its factory correct Sunlight Yellow (code V), a color only offered in 1964 ½. The car’s paint and trim are great overall condition, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The pony’s windows are clear and intact while its lights are haze-free and look good. This Mustang’s bodywork is straight and solid, the black, vinyl, power-folding top is in very good order, the car’s 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 Ford’s base engine, a 170 CID Thriftpower inline six-cylinder (vin code U) with a one-barrel carburetor, mated to a three-speed 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 six-cylinder 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 three-spoke 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 interior’s 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 1964 Ford Falcons and 1964 Mercury Comets, the earliest Mustangs are widely referred to as the 1964½ model. Nevertheless, all “1964½” cars were given 1965 U.S. standard VINs at 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 “1964½” Mustangs, a distinction that has endured with purists.
The low-end model hardtop used a “U-code” 170 CID straight-six engine borrowed from the Falcon, as well as a three-speed manual 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 the 1964 World’s Fair.
Documentation includes a copy of Chilton’s Mustang Repair Guide from 1965 to 1973. Competition to this Mustang in 1965 was limited to Plymouth’s Barracuda, which launched 16 days before the Mustang.
If an uncomplicated, evergreen classic convertible holds more appeal for you, if you’re a Ford or a Mustang fan, then you owe it to yourself to visit MotoeXotica Classic Cars and look it over for yourself.

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
