First Ever Mustang Convertible for Sale

1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible
1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible / Classic Muscle Cars

Just order for $5.5m

How special would a Ford Mustang have to be in order to command an astonishing sum of $5.5m for a Ford Mustang? Probably, one of the rarest Mustangs to exist, right?  Well, that's exactly what has turned up. Car classifieds site ClassicMuscleCars.com is presenting a 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible claiming it is the first Mustang ever built and also the first to be sold one day before the official launch.

There were 185 pre-production Mustangs produced on March 5, 1964, but they were used for testing and racing. Ford’s Dearborn assembly line manufactured the first production car on March 9.  The preordered Mustang Convertible was then delivered to its owner the evening of April 16th, less than one day before the official public launch on the 17th, therefore, making it even more collectible since it's the first Mustang sold to the public ahead of its official launch. Ford had aired a National television commerical campaign appearing on every network on the evening of April 16 which resulted in 22,000 cars sold the following day.

If you don’t have $5.5m available, don’t get too worried. The one-off 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Convertible can be purchased for only $42,064.26 per month with $1,000,000 down payment. It has the original registration plates and comes with full ownership history including a letter from William Clay Ford, who borrowed the Mustang for his grand daughter's wedding ceremony in 2006. After restorations in 1983 were made, the car keeps it outstanding appeal by looking like it just rolled off of the production line.

We used to back in the day and it was known as the Contour, now we dont get it at all, closest thing we have is the Focus which is an ugly POS.

completely agree with you ford is definitely desperate for money however... if they want to do better in northamerica... they should seriously consider bringing in their European models over here... ive seen them quite a bit while i was there and i wasn't much of a ford fan until now

I have to agree with carcrazy1234 it is pitiful that an American car company makes more models in the UK than the US. This is one of the reasons why I don't like the US and I live in Texas. I mean we don't get any good cars anymore that is the reason I am going to move to the Britain after college.

Why isn't this car in the Ford museum? Is ford really this desperate for $? If they don't already own this car they should buy it and put it away in their museum, its only right.
