Description for Ford Mustang 1964

In the early 90s a Mustang Club of America official learned that a this gem of Mustang history had been stored roughly 120 miles from his house for almost 20 years. After talks with the owner of the track he became the first and only private owner of the car. And circa 1991 he began a fully documented NOS restoration that would eventually earn the convertible a perfect score in MCA's exclusive Thoroughbred Class. As far as labor was concerned the restoration wasn't too difficult as the car was incredibly solid when purchased. In fact 95% of its parts some of them one-of-a-kind originals were reconditioned and bolted right back up using original and NOS hardware. And the 5% that couldn't be reused was carefully replaced with either NOS or completely custom components. In the final phase of the project the car's all-original body and frame were walnut-blasted to remove long-dead pigment. And correct single-stage Ford Fleet White was laid under a metallic blue stripe Indy tags and authentic pace car decals. Developed for the GT40 campaign labeled "experimental" and as far as anyone knows the only factory-installed Mustang mill of its kind this convertible's 450 horsepower V8 is a literal fairy-tale of Ford performance. Behind that hot small block an "experimental" Toploader 4-speed which wears a familiar C3 bellhousing turns a narrowed '59 Galaxie limited-slip around 3.25 gears. At the ends of the car a fully restored suspension employs a larger sway bar shortened coils de-arched leafs and original mismatched Koni shocks. And power meets the pavement thanks to painted steel wheels which spin NOS 7.75-14 Firestone 500 goldlines around faux stainless knock-offs. This blue chip pony has all the hardware documentation and prestige to ensure its status as "the most significant historic Mustang in the world".
