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.
This Mustang is owned by a car enthusiast and is only being sold due to lack of suitable storage space. This is a sound example in good solid order throughout. The 289c.i. engine is an uncomplicated unit and is known for its reliability. The vendor had the differential overhauled in September 2016, new universal joints were also fitted to the prop-shaft at the same time. The automatic gearbox was rebuilt by Stanton Automatics in Tonbridge also in September 2016. Benefitting from a full years MoT test certificate, this handsome example comes with a V5C registration document and receipts for the above work. Now could be the time to ignite your youth again as the new owner of this cool blue example.
