(1 photo of a 1964 Wimbledon White Mustang Convertible) This Wimbledon White was the first 1964 Mustang sold to the public. It was built on March 9, 1964 which was the first day of production. Pre-production models were built prior to March 9th. This Mustang was pre-ordered by a couple who received delivery at Powell Ford in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 16th. Which was one day before the official first day of sale for the new Mustang on March 17th. So, where is the second Mustang sold? Good luck finding it, as 22,000 Mustangs were sold on March 17th! This Mustang was delivered with the following options: Wimbledon White paint, 260ci 2V V8 engine, Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, Rally Pac gauges, power brakes, power steering, power convertible top, padded visors, reverse lights, a heavy duty battery, full-length console, tinted windshield, a push-button AM radio with antenna, rocker panel moldings, Deluxe wheel covers with spinners, white wall tires, heater delete, seat belt delete, dual outside mirrors, compass, day/night mirror, and 2-speed electric wipers and washer.|
(1 photo 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.
(2 photos of a 1964 Pace Car White Mustang Indianapolis Pace Car Convertible) This is an original official 1964 Mustang Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Replica. It's a Ford built replica of the one that actually paced the race. This is one of about 40 convertibles and about 190 hardtops built by Ford back in 1964. The convertibles were used as Dignitary (parade) cars at the race, then auctioned off to the dealerships. The hardtops were given straight to dealers. Of all the convertibles, only very few remain. This car has its original 210hp (at 4400rpm), 289 cubic inch, 4 barrel, V8 engine.
(1 photo of a 1965 Wimbledon White Mustang GT Hardtop) Wimbledon White 1965 Mustang GT hardtop owned by Reiny van Uden from Netherlands. It still has it's original 289 4V engine and an manual transmission. Reiny adds, "We bought this car in 1996 from the second owner. The first owner had the car for 29 years. We restored it in 1998/2001 to show condition. We have also the original window sticker. The car is a factory GT."
(1 photo of a 1965 Wimbledon White Mustang Shelby GT-350 Fastback) Same setup as the last photo, but showing more of the front end of the Shelby GT350. Looks like the exhaust pipes exit just past the rear axle under the car. I wonder if this one has mufflers?
(1 photo of a 1965 Wimbledon White Mustang Shelby GT-350 Fastback) This is a cool shot. I didn't know how cool it was until I got home and reviewed the photos I took. Check out the rain drops half on and half off the stripes. I liked this one so much that it was the cover art for our 2010 Mustang Calendar and the profile shot on our Facebook Fan Page.
(1 photo of a 1966 Wimbledon White Mustang Sprint Hardtop) Wimbledon White 1966 Mustang with a Sprint Package 200 A, 120 hp (at 4400 rpm), 200 cubic inch, inline 6 cylinder engine. Due to the popular demand of the 289 cubic inch V8, 1966 Ford introduced the "Sprint Package 200" followed by what we think might have been an "A" for automatic transmission and "B" for manual. Ford was not very proud of this solution to the engine shortage so the Sprint Package threw in several standard option upgrades for free (center console, courtesy lights, side accent paint stripe color matched with the car's interior, and the deluxe wire-style wheel covers) and advertised the package as a "Limited Edition". The engine on all models came with decal that read "Mustang Powered Sprint 200" on the chrome air cleaner. Most books have the "A" Sprint option listed as Manual transmission and "B" as Automatic. This car is an "A" model according to the invoice and appears to have an automatic transmission although the data tag is hard to verify. We also have a 1968 Sprint with the same situation but the invoice clearly states Sprint "A" and automatic transmission.
(1 photo of a 1966 Wimbledon White Mustang Hardtop) Wimbledon White 1966 Mustang hardtop owned by Dani Joyce from Australia. This is an awesome shot! It was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting August 28, 2011. Dani tells us, "This a very original unrestored 66 coupe. It was built in San Jose, California on 7 Feb 1966. It was imported to Australia in 2010 and I bought it a week after it arrived in the country. The car even arrived with the original pink slip and several US Nationals Parks passes. The car was purchased in the US from the same family who bought the car originally. It is an excellent example of the classic icon."
