Outstanding three owner example from new! All original sheet metal, and loaded with rare factory options that include D-code 289-4bbl engine, air conditioning, power steering, power convertible top, tinted glass, wire spoke wheels, and more! Fully serviced, and a long time award winner at prominent Ford shows! Great investment!
Still one of the most desired collector cars throughout the world, the Ford Mustang! More than one million cars were produced during the first two years alone to satisfy hungry buyers in the mid-1960’s! Today some the most desired are the fully optioned convertibles, particularly the early 1964.5 examples built from March 1964 through August 1964. These unique examples have special features found specifically on the first units built. A special engine coding system, vented radiator support to help battery cooling, generator charging system, large horns, just to name a few. Very few of these continue to remain in rust free condition today, so finding a good one can be a real challenge!
We are very excited to offer this incredibly well preserved 1964.5 Ford Mustang Convertible finished in factory code correct Caspian Blue over Blue Vinyl Interior! Powered by its original D-code 289ci-4bbl V8 210 horsepower engine, C4 automatic transmission, and 3.00:1 conventional rear end ratio! A perfect setup for a highway cruiser in any climate! The option list for this early Mustang is quite strong with power steering, air conditioning, power convertible top, original working AM radio, 14” steel wheels with chrome wire spoke wheel covers, reverse lights, rocker panel moldings, padded sun visors, tinted window glass, seatbelts, rubber floor mats, single outside mirror with day/night interior mirror, and seat belts!
This wonderfully rust free example bears all original sheet metal from new, and just one older repaint finished in the 1980’s. It sold new from a Charlotte, NC Ford dealer to a doctor who ordered it special for his wife as a gift. When they came to sell it, it didn’t go far when their Rock Hill, NC neighbor who always admired the car purchased it for his own. We believe he was the one who decided to have the paint refinished during his ownership. He would maintain possession until Steve Woolard would purchase it in June 2000 with 93,000 miles on the odometer. It would only trade hands these three times since new!
Since 2000, Mr. Woolard would be an active member of the Southern Performance Ford Club (SPFC) and showcased his pride and joy avidly! It earned a First Place at the Grand National Mustang Show at Lowe’s Motor Speedway for 64.5-66 Open-Driven Class in 2002. It was also a multiple award winner, particularly in the SPFC Auto Fair Spring & Fall circuit taking either Class Winner or Best of Class honors twelve times, along with a Silver & 2 Gold Awards at Mustang & All Ford Shows! Trophies will be provided to the next owner as they stayed with this car.
Inside, you will find a remarkably well kept original presentation with factory floor carpeting & underlayment, factory seat upholstery & foam cushions; door panels, sail & kick panels; factory instrument panel & gauges; original seatbelts; and more! Mechanically, Mr. Woolard rebuilt the front & rear suspension components in 2012 along with a new, correct replacement radiator with hoses & clamps. Outside you will find a brand new convertible top and boot cover also installed in 2012. A new exhaust system was installed in 2012. The factory transmission was completely rebuilt in April 2015. New power top cylinders and lines were installed in May 2015, as well as new power steering lines later that same year with fresh Hankook radial whitewall tires.
Upon arrival here to the St. Louis Car Museum, we elected to replace the door sill plates and door handles for new. Under the hood, it was due for a some freshening, so we took the extra effort to detail the engine compartment with new radiator shroud, radiator cap, and upgraded 5-blade fan; new valve cover gaskets, all new drive belts, fresh brake fluid with new rear brake hose, cleaned & adjusted the brakes, along with fresh engine oil & filter. Once finished, we completely serviced the air conditioning system to ensure it blows cold. It is an exceptionally nice and structurally solid example that couldn’t be more ready to enjoy! It maintains all original major factory components right down to the carburetor, heads, intake, etc. as well as untouched factory door tag! Please call with any additional questions or to schedule a chance to see it in person! But don’t wait! Cars like this never last long! Thanks for looking!
