Hello, Both had deep concave wheels. This was actually a safety feature to protect the driver on impact, but was noted more for its style. The 1965 had the option of a wood grain steering wheel as part of the Interior Decor Group, while I do not believe the 1964.5 did. Best of luck, CarGrrl

I agree with Cargrrl. If you have a 64 1/2 Mustang, hang onto it!

Un-plug your horn(unless you like annoying your neighbors),,push your horn,and turn the ring to the left to remove it-now,carefully dismantle the backside,and remove the emblem,and surround-ring..If your wheel is a true 64 1/2,you will see "falcon sprint" behind the mustang emblem..If it is blank-it"s a 65-66 steering wheel..
