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. |

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.

Another shot of the front bench seat. Does anyone remember driving a car with one of these? The whole bench moves forward and backward when adjusted. This is a tricky feat when you have a passenger. You have to coordinate rocking back and forth to adjust the seat. If you don't, the seat doesn't move. I remember saying, "We are going to move forward. Ready. One, two, three, go." Then I'd rock forward, the passenger backward, then alternate - we'd go no where. Pretty funny, actually.

"Aunt Myrna, if you ever want to sell your Mustang, let us know." This is what Allan and Nancy Eisentraut told their aunt Myrna of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin. Myrna bought the car new in 1966, drove it for years, then stored it in her garage for 16 years, untouched. Finally, one day in 1986, Allan and Nancy, got a call from Myrna. She wanted to sell them the car. Allan went there with his mechanic son. They pulled the Mustang out of the garage with the tires sliding on the ground. They were froze up with rust. After pounding the rust off the wheels to get them to turn; then taking the spark plugs out, pouring oil into the spark plug holes; and pouring gas into the carburetor, the Mustang started up - surprisingly, even with the old battery. It was quite rusty and a body man told them not to wait too long to have it taken car of. Within a year, the car had been repainted. Everything is still original on the car, right down to the plaid carpet in the trunk. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week picture for 8-26-07.

Ivy Green 1966 Mustang GT T-5 convertible that was once owned by Emmanuel Theux from Monte-Carlo. T-5 was the Mustang model sold in Germany, because the model name of "Mustang" could not be used because a trunk company had registered it first in Germany. Not sure how many people would confuse a Mustang truck with the Mustang car. This one has a K-code HiPo 289ci V8 engine. Emmanuel sold it to a private museum in Switzerland. Emmanuel has owned many Mustangs. Check them out by clicking here.

Emberglo 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 convertible with a 120hp (at 4400rpm), 200 cubic inch, 1 barrel, inline 6 cylinder engine. Promoted as the Millionth Mustang Success Sale, the Sprint 200 limited edition package was offered mid 1966 when Ford worried about inventory problems with the first V8 level upgrade 289ci engine. The Sprint 200 was a sport package specifically designed for the base 200ci 6 cylinder engine which were plentiful. Other Sprint options included center floor console; painted side accent stripes (color matched with the car's interior); deletion of the chrome rear quarter ornaments; and a set of deluxe 48 spoke, blue center wire-style wheel covers.
