(6 photos of a 1964 Vintage Burgundy Mustang Hardtop) This is a one owner Vintage Burgundy 1964 Mustang hardtop. Roy Ratliff purchased it new on May 29, 1964 and still owns it today! It was our featured Attitude Of The Week photo for the week starting 2-15-09. Roy tells us more, "It came with a center console and Ralley-Pac. I rebuilt the motor in 2007 installing all new internals and had the carb rebuilt by Pony Carbs. In the beginning it was my hot rod, now it's my cherished ride. I will never be for sale as long as I live."|
(7 photos of a 1964 Pace Car White Mustang Indianapolis Pace Car Hardtop) This is a 1964 Mustang Indianapolis Pace Car hardtop. This is one of about 185 replicas that were sold in 1964 to the public. Not just any dealer could sell them though. They had to compete for them! The competition, called "Checkered Flag" and "Green Flag" contests, were based on the dealer's sales performance prior to the introduction of the Mustang in April of 1964. The top five dealerships in each district received a Pace Car replica. This car was won by Bennett Ford in Salt Lake City, Utah. The pace cars are all sequentially numbered (VIN) between 111500-126000. They have the same dataplate codes; 65A=hardtop, C=Pace Car White paint, 42=white & blue interior. Many were sold to customers with the stripes and lettering removed. Thirty-seven Wimbledon White 1964 Mustang Pace Car convertibles were created for the actual Indianapolis 500 race. Three of them were modified to be actual pace cars (4-speed transmission, tuned 289ci engines, lowered suspension, and speed rated tires). Another thirty-five convertibles with red, white, or blue interiors were used as Dignitary Cars. They were auctioned to dealerships and sold to the public after the race event.
