1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible
Enjoy our presentation of this classic 1964 1/2 early production San Jose, California built Ford Mustang Convertible. This Mustang was restored by it's owner approximately 5 years ago and has been garaged since. It is mechanically sound and a pleasure to drive with the classic 260 V8, as you can see in the video above. The owner chose a bright white instead of Whimbleton white. The interior features Pony upholstery in red. This is your opportunity to own unit production number 100426. 1965 Mustangs produced from March 1964 until late July 1964 are referred to as "64 1/2" Mustangs

The wheels of choice are classic reproduction 14-inch Styled Steel Mustang wheels wrapped in raised white letter performance tires sized at 195/70R14 on all 4 corners.
Unique to the 1964 1/2 Ford Mustangs were angled hood edges. These soon gave way to a rolled edge hood for the true 1965 model year Mustangs built from August '64 - on.
The power convertible top has been replaced with an expensive custom red canvas top, giving it plenty of flash with the top up or down. The top was $1,500 alone. The power top assembly works correctly as well. The top frame assembly has also been restored.
The interior has been restored in classic red vinyl throughout. Originally standard interior, this Mustang features Pony seat upholstery. The transmission of choice is the stock 3-speed manual paired with the center console.
A Signature Series Grant 3-spoke steering wheel has been installed.
The dash displays the classic horizontal speedometer reminescent of the Ford Falcon. Unique features to early 1965 Mustangs include a generator charge light on this classic speedometer cluster. The dash retains its factory components with exception of a Kenwood AM/FM Cassette Stereo and the classic Grant 3-spoke wood steering wheel.
The front and rear upholstery is in excellent condition. The seat belts are new. The rubber weatherstrip components were also replaced during the restoration work.
Under the hood is the correct F-code 260 V8. During the restoration, the engine was removed and stripped bare. It was rebuilt by a performance shop in Garland, Texas. The factory crank and cylinder heads are retained. All other parts such as pistons, rods, rings, bearings, gaskets, etc. were replaced. The block itself was black ashed in an oven, removing all deposits prior to the rebuild. This engine was factory equipped with a 2bbl. carburetor and rated at 164 horsepower. It now has a Ford 4bbl. intake (C40E-9425-B) and Edelbrock 4bbl. carburetor.
