Radwan Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible. Ford began production of its ‘pony car’ in the mid 1964 model year. Championed by Ford General Manager Lee Iaccoca, the Mustang was an instant success. Available initially as a coupe or a convertible, with a low starting price and a large choice of colors and options, the Mustang sold faster than Ford had ever hoped. It caught all of the other major auto manufacturers by surprise. It was so popular that through the 1965 model year the Mustang sold 680,989 units, its first year ! It remains one of the most collectible and instantly recognizable classic cars worldwide.
This particular example was manufactured April 28th, 1964. Just 2 weeks after the Mustang was first introduced to the public at the New York World’s Fair. The car still retains its original black license plates.
The car has been highly maintained and extremely well cared for. It is finished in its original color combination of Poppy Red with a black vinyl interior. The car has just completed a full top to bottom restoration with nothing left unattended. It is beautifully detailed throughout including its stunning interior and engine compartment. The mustang is well equipped with power steering, power convertible top, full console, automatic transmission, heater, AM radio, styled steel wheels, trumpet exhaust and more. The car is a show worthy example that is ready for both the show field and the open road. It is an amazingly straight, tight, and solid example. This is one of the very best and rarest mustang convertibles we have offered.
