Introduced midway through the 1964 model year, the Ford Mustang was a smash success right out of the gate. The sporty compact car with the long hood and short rear deck proportions was initially offered as a coupe and convertible, which were soon joined by a fastback. In addition to the trio of body styles, the Mustang offered a choice of six- and eight-cylinder engines so there was something for every sporty car fan in Ford’s stable. Here we have what must rank as one of the nicest early Mustang convertibles we’ve ever seen, let alone offered for sale. This beautiful restoration was performed on a rock-solid California car and was obviously done to a very high standard. Indeed, this is what we call a “lasagna car” meaning that even the underside (the frame, floor pans, etc) is so clean that we’d eat our Sunday dinner off of it. The arrow straight body panels are painted in gorgeous factory Vintage Burgundy which is complemented with a beige convertible power top. All the chrome and stainless-steel trim is as pristine and stunning as the paint. The “wow” factor is further cranked up via the factory optional “styled steel” chrome wheels and the GT equipment (the grille-mounted driving lights and the “trumpet” dual exhausts which exit cleanly through the rear valence panel) which adds a sporty flavor. During the restoration, the interior, which is as nice as the exterior, was upgraded to the factory optional “Pony” package. As early Mustang enthusiasts know, that optional upgraded interior features built-in door armrests and embossed running horses running across the tops of the seats. This car also has the factory optional center console and factory optional air conditioning (which works great). A remote left hand sideview mirror, the wood-rimmed steering wheel and the “Rally Pac” gauges (which flank the steering column) are a few more factory options of this loaded drop top. Under the hood, the factory “C” code 289 2-barrel V8 resides and, as with the rest of the car, looks like it just rolled out of the showroom. Matched to the 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, it is a smooth performer with plenty of pep. Power steering and power front disc brakes add to the ease and enjoyment of wheeling this classic Mustang around. This car drives as good as it looks. If you are looking for one of the nicest early Mustang convertibles out there, we strongly suggest checking out this museum-quality example.
