|Odometer reading||54,135 miles|
|Estimate||£18,000 - £25,000|
The Mustang is an American icon and was originally based on the
Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the
assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964 and was
introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on April 17,
1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product
launches in automotive history. It sold over one million units in
its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with
revised models still in production today after 43 years. Ford
added a Fastback to its 1965 Mustang line-up but the convertible
holds a special place in American culture and was heavily
publicised as 'a car to escape the mundane nature of life.' The 'Le
Mans' stripes, which run the length of the car, reflected the
Shelby racing team colours and were originally blue over white.
Many different interpretations now exist and this example presents
with white stripes over a blue car.
This is though, a standard example of a 289ci convertible Mustang with automatic gearbox. The body is in good order; imported, as it was, from Arizona, a state with a notoriously dry climate. The vinyl hood appears to be original as is the correct eight-track cassette player. The GT350 aspirations do not stop with the paintwork however; it has been equipped with a stainless steel Shelby exhaust from front to back including the quad tail pipes and Shelby wheels and tyres. Complete with a full one year MoT test certificate, this GT350 looks the part but remains mild mannered so you can enjoy all the fun of open-top motoring.
