The Ford Mustang was the brainchild of Lee Lacocca and was branded as the first 'Pony Car', borne out of a need to compete with the flood of European sports cars coming into the USA in the sixties. 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.

Registered new in 1966, this superb looking example has more recently been imported to the UK in 2019. Since being imported the Mustang has been part of a private classic car collection where it has been treated to an extensive restoration. The coachwork was completely stripped and repainted and the interior was renewed. The engine was also fully inspected, and a comprehensive top end engine rebuild was completed, as such the Mustang presents in excellent condition and drives very well indeed. Fitted with desirable upgrades including an aluminium radiator and disc brakes at the front, the vendor reports the Mustang sounds fantastic when on song and drives very well indeed! One of the best we have seen, the Fastback is offered with a history file documenting the restoration, various sundry invoices, and the current UK registration document. We are sure it will be keenly contested at auction.
