The Ford 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 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang 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 50 years. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power.
Built in San Jose, California, this fine example was first registered on the 1st January 1965 and is believed to have only had two owners while in the US. It is finished in the striking colour combination of blue with complementary blue interior and benefits from having a manual gearbox. The owner describes the engine, transmission, and paintwork all to be in excellent condition. The car comes supplied with a V5C document which shows the car was first registered in the UK on 1st December 2015 together with an MoT test certificate valid until November 2016. A very well presented example of this iconic piece of Americana.
