This is a 2 owner car, First was the grandfather and then, the car was willed to the grandson who restored the car.

This car was ordered early 1964 as what would become a K code car. Due to the factory not being able to supply enough cars early 1964 with the correct option, this car came to the dealer as a C code, a 289 2 barrel and a 4 speed with power steering . The dealer installed the 4 barrel, Power brakes and Air Conditioning.

This Mustang has both 1964 ½ parts and 1965 parts. It was built August 19th 1964!

All the outside chrome is in very good shape and original, but not show quality.

Ok the story,Car was special ordered because of the wait on Mustangs, This mustang was special ordered for August 19th 1964, It was ordered as a 289 4 barrel solid lifter, 4 speed, PB, PS car, what came was a 289, 2 barrel 4 speed, PS, C code, (go figure) owner had the dealer install the PB and 4 barrel, Owner took delivery in Jacksonville Fla.. He took the car home and his wife thru a fit because of the no air, he took it back to the dealer who installed the air. He drove the car from 1965 to 1995 then couldnt shift the car anymore, so he then gave the car to the son who drove it until 2013, who then decided to restore the car. He restored it insisting on keeping as much as original as possible. He passed in 2016. A dealer in Miami bought the car out of the estate and that is how i ended up with the car.Remember this is only the story that came with the ca, No way to prove it true or not true!
What is fact :This car was suppose to be built 19 days into August but due to the change over it wasnt finished until the 28th, with very special order options.
