2014 is a landmark year for Ford, for it was on the 17th April 1964 at the Worlds Fair that Ford unveiled to the world the Mustang. Originally Ford forecast sales of 100,00 in the first year of production – that figure was blown away, with the dealers selling 20,000 on the first day. Going on to sell more than 300,000 in the first model year of 1964 .
Over the next 18 months, over 1 million Mustangs were sold. The 1964 car was released mid year and as a result it became known as the “1964 ½”. In 1965 the Mustang became Ford’s biggest selling car since the Model A.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang we are offering for sale a limited edition of 20 cars based on 64, 65 and 66 Mustangs. All cars will come with new paint, new chrome, new interior trim, new carpets, 17″ chrome alloys, Shelby style steering wheel, gold cobra stripes and special 50th anniversary
