1964 Ford Mustang Spec Explorer
The Mustang first debuted April 17, 1964 at the World's Fair held in New York. Ford sold 22,000 units the first day! It was advertised as having the "styling and features of expensive European road cars combined with an American mass-production price." The Mustang was a intermediate sized car offered in two body styles. The hardtop cost a mere $2,320, while the convertible could be purchased for $2,557. The Mustang came standard with a 101hp 170ci six cylinder. Three V8 engines were optional - the 164hp 260ci, 210hp 289ci, and a higher performance 271hp 289ci engine. Other standard equipment included bucket seats, floor shifted transmissions (automatic or manual), and a padded instrument panel. After the Mustang was used as the 1964 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car on May 30th, 190 special hardtop Indy Pace Car replicas (and 3 convertibles) were built. They where white with a light blue triple top stripe and had no mirrors. This site will call the first model as the 1964 Mustang, some (including Ford) call them 1964 1/2 Mustangs, and still others contend that they are early 1965 Mustangs. These 1964 Mustangs were all assembled before the early August 1964 plant shutdown for retooling. The retooling included changes in engines, alternator, and trim as well as the 1965 introduction of the fastback.
