Very late in 1964 or very early in 1965 the first models were called 1964 1/2.

Dad had a '66 289 auto untill he found out a third kid was on the way. Weren't no room for three kids in the back seat of a mustang, even without the bulky car seats of today.

By the way how did we all live to grow up with out those things?

1964 1/2! the first Mustangs also used the 260 V-8 which was a smaller cubic inch engine version of the 289. the first Mustangs also had generators instead of an alternator. they were also built on the Falcon floorpan.

Of course, Mopar means "Mostly Old Parts And Rust" and trust me, with the cost of anything Mopar...this is a true statement! new parts and rust repair on these old pigs is NOT cheap! haha
In the 60's it was "Fix Or Repair Daily"

nice thing about those cars from the 60's, is that a peice of baling wire and chewing gum could fix a lot of breakdowns!

today you need a $10,000 computer to tell you what's wrong!

The Mustang was not introduced in late 64. It was introduced in Spring of 64, April, as a 64 1/2 at first. That's why they called it a 64 1/2 - because it was introduced far into a normal 64 model year run. - just at the tail end of the normal production run. --- But they sold a ton of them. They were wildly popular! There was nothing else sporty like them. They were the first of the small sporty cars. And the public loved them!
Soon switched over to the 65 model which was introduced in the normal August/September cycle.

Not many 64 1/2 cars around. The V8 cars had 260 V8's installed. Six cylinders, too, of course. But the 260 was dropped at the end of that run, and the 289 went in the 65.
So 260 powered 64 1/2 cars are uncommon now.

So...could you change out the word "far" and use "late" instead?


I think that's what he meant when he said "late 64" he meant that it was released half way through the 1964 model year run, not in the fall of 1963 like the rest of the 1964 line-up.
