Lot 189 - 1965 Ford Mustang Coupé
|Odometer reading||53,500 miles|
|Estimate||£13,000 - £16,000|
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 example is presented in pale yellow with black interior and is fitted with a 289ci V8 engine mated to an automatic gearbox. The car was imported in 2014 and has been looked after extremely well by the present owner. Its paintwork is in good condition as is the interior, including the headlining. These are great fun and with its rumbling V8 which sounds fantastic, it is a joy to drive.
