A NEW APPROACH IN AN AGE OLD BUSINESS+44 (0) 1926 691 141
First released in 1964, the Ford Mustang created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable, and therefore it needed to share much of its engineering with an existing Ford product. They decided to base the Mustang on the smallest US Ford at the time, the Falcon. The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘notchback' coupé or convertible. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon, but compared to the Falcon its cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front end and shorter rear design, and both its roof and cowl were also lower in comparison. It's with those proportions and detailed with such iconic touches as the running horse in the grille, the cutaway side detailing and the rear lights divided into three sections, that the Mustang became a car people were instantly passionate about. This, all original Mustang GT 289 Fastback was built on 15th May 1965 at the Dearborn Ford factory in Michigan. It was supplied new with the more desirable A-code 4-barrel engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, disc brakes, dual exhaust, rear valance, spot lamps and rally pack. It was, and still is, finished in Wimbledon White with '65 Red Crinkly vinyl pony interior. The vehicle was imported into the UK in the late 1980s and has been enthusiast owned since. It is exact to factory specification and the car has been maintained regardless of cost and dry stored since its arrival. Described by the vendor as very original and rust-free, this genuine factory GT is not an imitation, clone, tribute or recreation. It has complete matching numbers and is a multiple show winner. In addition, the car has been documented in numerous magazine articles that included cover shots and a 6-page centre article in Classic and Sports Car. It was also featured and tested on Top Gear with photos and signatures by driver Tiff Needell. Supplied with an MoT certificate and UK V5 registration, this beautiful Mustang is an opportunity not to be missed by any muscle car fans.
