Lots Of Pep Smooth Ride — I like everything about this car, it drives great, gets lots of looks, does great at mustang shows, the gas mileage is great, have to use premium gas, if you like classic mustangs this is a great car and for those who know a very rare 4th day production is very hard to come by.

1964 1/2 Mustang — Love the attention that it gets. Starts up every time I turn the key. The small 289 v8 engine is so easy to deal with and parts are very easy to get. Bow to the first Mustang. Now fifty years old.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Kewl — Needs a lot of TLC to bring her back to glory, but is doable. Floor pans are gone, a little cancer on the rear quarters, all the frames for the seats are there. Engine is a 262 in-line 6 single barrel carb, with mud dobber nest for free.Engine does roll over but will need to be rebuilt. Car came from Alabama.

I would rather have my first Mustang back than anything I have ever owned.

A Dream — I bought my 64 1/2 Mustang in 1968, when I was a high school senior, just before I graduated. I paid $1000 and bought it from the dealer who sold it originally to the only owner before me. I know it was a 64 1/2; it was untouched when I got it, and in fantastic shape. In addition to what you see on 'expert' sites, my 'stang had a at least three things you never see mentioned: No back up lights, 4 bolt wheels (I couldn't buy mags for that reason, nobody made them to fit back then), and my favorite proof: When you popped the ring that said 'Ford Mustang' off the center of the horn ring, it said 'Falcon Sprint' on the chrome hub. The 101 hp, 170 cu in engine had no power and wasn't all that good on gasoline - 18 mpg was typical - but who cared? I will never forget the sound of static from thunderstorms on the AM radio when I was on a date. I kept the car for three years, until the engine blew up and I sold it to my brother. I would give worlds to have kept it. over the past 40 plus years, I have had many dreams about the car, usually that I found it in the weeds in the lot behind my parent's house, rolled it out, and got it running. I was sitting in the office this morning and the Beach Boys' 'I Get Around' came on the radio. If ever there was a song made for my Mustang, that was it, Suddently, I was 18, shifting the three-speed transmission, and headed out on a Saturday night.

Drivin The Dream — This is the American classic that helped to define the muscle car era as we fondly remember it. Power, handling, and style are all off the charts for a 40 year old car. I haven't shaken a speeding ticket in it yet, but realistically, I didn't plan on it. At the same time, I don't regret crusin' in it for a second

Good Car But Wouldnt Stand A Chance Against A 69 Mustang Boss 429 Engine Yet — I like the car because its fast. It has a 6 cylinder engine. It's a manual transmission so it picks up speed faster This car is probably worth 5 grand in this day and age. This car is fun in automatic and manual
