Does being a "borderline" 64 1/2 / 65 mustang add to its value?

Asked by Oct 17, 2015 at 01:43 AM about the 1965 Ford Mustang

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I have a 65 Mustang that has parts from both years.  Its a 6 cylinder T3
cruisomatic.  Production date of August 28, 1964. Dearborn. Buying parts is
a gamble on what year it needs.  I'm getting ready to sell it, I've had her 10
years and still havent finished restoring.  (paint and interior left),  I cant find
anything about these borderline cars and their value. She's all original with
a motor and transmission rebuid in 2011.

There is a lot of debate on this. I was trying to find a thread we went through this a few months ago on this very subject

I put all those in separate windows to make it easy to hyperlink, I sincerely wish you luck .. but one thing I can say with certainty is that it's valuable, but a $ figure is very difficult to say

No, not really- the reason is that they built a million of them, with that exact same body- the value in The Mustangs has to do with condition (and yours needs work), engines, and the fastbacks are desirable- now if it is a fastback, that is not the same old body-

With that late of a production date it's not borderline, it's a 1965 model. The "1964 1/2" Mustangs were introduced in April of 1964. The '64 model year run would have been over by July at the latest. My '78 Eldorado was shipped in August of 1977. It wasn't a '77 1/2, it was a 1978 model. Between April of '64 and January of '65 680,989 Mustangs were produced. All were "officially" 1965 models. Unofficially a "1964 1/2" would be one made before the start of the '65 model run. Yours was not. HTH. -Jim

Its technically a 65 and built after early August 15th retooling--65; no value difference on car--options make difference
