Pros

This is the quintessential classic muscle car that set the standards for all muscle cars down to even her colors of Wimbledon White on Rangoon Red as seen on millions of calendars and marketing materials through the years. I will get cash offers for her while stopped at a red light, will constantly get windows rolled down comments and thumbs up honks, not to mention she even makes you feel like a rock star being that every once in a while you will find ladies panties placed into the car.

Cons

Re-known for running hot the 289 supplies great power but if the heat isn't kept in control your in for trouble. The steering system stock is crap, keeping in mind this was still considered a prototype mustang as they would make many changes to the 1965's as more feedback came in from customers who purchased early.

There Simply Is No Better Definition For American Muscle Than This Car; It Defines Muslce Car. — This is the quintessential classic muscle car that set the standards for all muscle cars down to even her colors of Wimbledon White on Rangoon Red as seen on millions of calendars and marketing materials through the years. There simply is no better definition for American Muscle than this car; It defines American Muscle Car as we know it.

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

Cons

Nothing worthy of being called a con.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
