An American automobile icon, the Ford Mustang 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 53 years. Ford added a Fastback to its 1965 Mustang line-up, the convertible holds a special place in American culture and was heavily publicised as 'a car to escape the mundane nature of life.'
This Ford Mustang was imported into the UK in 2018 and has been enjoyed by the vendor since then. The 5.0 litre V8 engine runs well and sounds superb, this is mated to a manual gearbox making this a real muscle car to drive. As an added safety feature a rollover bar has been fitted. This handsome looking convertible is supplied with a V5C registration document together with the original owners’ manual and a small number of invoices. These iconic cars offer performance, style and fun all within the same package.
