How many 1964 1/2 Mustangs were made?
the1/2 is the answer,they were made in the middle of the year,but is the most sought after stane of the car.
I realize that it was made in the middle of the year, but the Shelby is the most sought after. The 1964 1/2 is the rarest. But I would like to know how many were made and how many of them were convertibles.
1964 1/2 mustangs produced standard coupes 92,705 standard convertibles 28,883 total 121,538
You seem to know what you'retalking about. I have a 64 1/2 mustang with a vinyl top. It has a 3 speed on the floor and a 260 v 8 engine. It was purchased new by my father-in -law and sold to me. It is burgandy color and I have been to Hot August Nights for 10 years and not seen this car. Is this as rare as it seems.
There is actually no documentation for 64.5-66 Mustangs, Ford destroyed the information you are currently looking for, no one really knows how many are out there. So giving a number for it is actually completely inaccurate, when no valid source for that information can be found. So, the answer to your question can not be given due to the lack of proper documentation.
Rifleman"s numbers were spot-on..Alex-youre kidding,right??I have documentation,including paint-codes,and options,for EVERY YEAR mustang,produced,from 1964(including feb.64,pre-production figures)..It"s available at any ford obsolete store!!!
Pre-production( mustangs built from dec. 18,1963-april 16th,1964)--101 coupes,,and 49 convertibles...
Ford destroyed the documents, and their is significant proof of that, if anyone gives you a number for those model years, it won't be accurate or precise.
In fact, if you were to try and get the marty report on any pre-1967 model mustang, you could not get any reliable production numbers of the car due to the fact that ford destroyed those numbers.
Thanks for the different responses to my question of how rare my Mustang is. As i said I have gone to Hot August Nights for 10 years and have never seen this particular car. We know it was manufactured before May 1964 cause we bought it on May14 1964. Soooooo if it is one of the 101 cars made pre May 1964 1/2 whats it worth as I am ready to sell it. Not versed in this so any advice will be much appreciated.
That is a very tough question to find a good answer to. All 64.5s carry a 1965 vin. I have a 64.5 A code 4 speed convertible waiting its turn to be restored. There is not really any documentation detailing trim and roofs still in existence for 64-66. You would need to have the sheets from all 101918 convertibles 65s built. Then separate the ones that were produced between 3/9/64 and 8/17/64. Whats makes this even harder is Ford says that the last 64.5 was built 7/31/64 and the 65s started the next day. However research has turned up 64.5s as late as 8/17. I think at the end of the day no one will ever know the true numbers for the 64.5-66 Mustangs.

What is your VIN number ... starting with a 5 indicates production year 64 + 65. Last numbers are actual car number. I have 5F08F100909, produced on 12.03 (third ever day of production). The 909 = 909th car produced!
to clarify ... 12 March.
Pete: If your car is the 909th car produced wouldn't the vin number be 000909? I was informed the last six numbers should be the consecutive build number. If I am mis-informed what build would the number 5F07C325011 be?
Pete, i have 5F08F101908. Date on door is 18C (Mar 18, 64). Someone in this post said 49 verts were built before April 16. Like yours that would make mine pretty rare but not sure where those numbers came from. Have you been able to find any source to validate early vert numbers? Thx, Mike
Snoopy: i understand your logic, but can't give an answer other than that's just the way it is. I haven't yet found an answer for what the 1 is. As Mike says, if you check your door date it will confirm your production. If you Google search the vin codes there is heaps of information in the www. Where are you Mike? I'm in Germany, there is a guy here who has something like car no. 124, first day of production. That would be a nice one to have in the garage!
Would be finer than frog hair Pete. I'm in New Mexico.
Just this thread, I was looking for information on my early Mustang before i put it up for sale. What i have found over 30 years of research, a rough idea of numbers exist, no actuals. the unit # started with 100000. I actually have a coupe march 10, 1964 build date all original VIN 100597. I was told by someone who worked the line that the lines had multiple models coming down and jsut because my VIN is 597 does not mean it's the 597 Mustang, it in fact means it's the 597th car built including all the other models. I have never validated that. Anniversary of the Mustang so I'm thinking it would be a good time to move my very early all original car.
I have a Question I have 1 numbers are 65 A Y 22 12S 45 5F07T721367 What would that make my date I'm really new to all this?
Right now, i believe there are 5 in existence. Numbers 3, 6, 11, 12, 15,
This is Bob Taylor. I just bought a 64 1/2 mustang with 57000 > miles on it, nice clean car. My son and I are going to restore this fall. > 260 , C4, Wimbledon white, blue interior. Most people say that there were only 92,705 coupes made. but mine is a original, and the vin# clearly states 204,000 But the Vin# has me > confused. It has two assembly plant codes on it, can you shed some light on > this for us? # 5TF07F204000. I know that the [F] is for Dearborn Mi. and > the [T] is for Metuchen, New Jersey, but have you ever seen a car with > both? Any info would be very appreciated. Thanks from the both of us.

Hi guy's here's a picture of the vin# Thanks again
I just purchased whatI believe to be a 64 1/2 289 A code 4 speed convertible...It was built the 4th day of August, has the 641/2 hood and beveled bezels, correct spare tire mount, Eaton p/s pump and many other 641/2 items ....yet has an alternator rather than the generator ?...some stats say 64/12 were produced as late as the 17th of August..I bought this car of the fellow that owned since 1974 ...original as ever everywhere
Camaro_red, I believe it is a 64.5 with out a dought. Being push to fill the high demand of orders, Formans on the line did whatever it took, to get them out, and putting a alt. is no big suprize to me! What do you think of my two plant build codes in my vin#?? My build date was July 28, 1964 and my unit # is 204000.Another odd thing about the 64 1/2s. Beautiful car you have there.
I have a 65 mustang, vin # 5F07F119842. It has a 260 and 3 speed manual transmission. I read it as a 64, correct? When was it made and how many with 260 engines in this coupe?
Why any car would have a tag showing both assembly plants would baffle most purists... I purchased my car from the man who owned it for 40 years.... Original interior is in incredible shape without a tear in any of the seats

My car has the 641/2 hood and headlight bezels, spare tire hold down is the slot not a J hook, seat belt holes for the front seats are staggered, has one 64 style pig tail on the rear tail lights and one short sealed unit..has the Eaton PS pump...even the seat belts are marked 64...built August 7 of 64
wmayfield707 To my knowledge there where no 65's that came from the factory with a 260 v8 it was discontinued, for the 65 model year, you could have a original 64 1/2!!!!!!!! NICE FINED. Go to this site http://iml.jou.ufl.edu/projects/students/Blommel/65.htm
