SILVERSTONE, England - An original 1964 Ford Mustang 1/2 Coupe, produced as part of the earliest production run of the iconic car, will go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ May Sale on May 24th.
The rare model, estimated to sell between £14,000 to £18,000, was built at Ford's Dearborn Michigan plant on 26th June 1964. The car has its original 260CI V8 Engine and Cruise-O-Matic transmission.
Sold to Alan G. Winslow of Virginia in October 1964, the car was delivered with a unique array of factory fitted options including power steering, power brakes, rally-pac and AM radio with rear speaker with a rare Studio Sonic Sound System.
Commenting on the car, Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “The Ford Mustang constantly figures in the world’s top ten favourite classics and with the price guide set here, this is a great value entry into that exclusive club.”
The sale of the car comes amid the 50th anniversary of the original ‘pony car’ as well as the launch of a new model this year.
