4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 4 of the 1964 Collection) 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.

4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 9 of the 1964 Collection) 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.
(from page 10 of the 1964 Collection) Here is a great photo 105 of the original 1964 Mustang Replica Pace Car hardtops all together. Which one of these is the 5F08D172714 car? I think it's the white one third from the front in the second row from the right. Below the cars is Lee Iacocca and their receiving dealers at the "Checkered Flag Winners Day" in Dearborn on May 14, 1964.
