1964 1/2 Mustang GT Convertible
1964 1/2 Mustang GT convertible. A beautifully restored, rust and accident free early 289 high-performance V8, 5 speed Tremec manual, 4 wheel disc brake, convertible with many upgrades and a well documented history. Being a C code car it appears to have been a 200 hp 289 when it left the factory but is now producing closer to 300 hp.
Purchased from its long-term owner and Mustang enthusiast, the car has been nicely restored, improved and refurbished to include rebuilding and upgrading the original 289 high-performance engine to include headers, a flow master custom exhaust system, cam, new Demon 4 barrel carb with braided stainless lines on a Weind aluminum intake, Cobra finned aluminum alloy sump and matching valve covers, MSD electronic ignition and distributor and a 5 speed Tremec manual transmission with a new clutch.
With the mechanicals taken care of the brake system was replaced with a dual reservoir master including compensator valve and a 4 wheel disc brake package added. This meant replacing the wheels with 15 inch American racing wheels fitted with new 215/60 R15s. The car’s bodywork and full paint were professionally done with the bumpers and other chrome parts replaced with new. The interior features the rally pack gauges, a Grant GT steering wheel, new carpets, a center console, and an AM/FM retro sound stereo system with Alpine amplifier and four speakers custom installed.
The car has all of its GT badges, the fog lamps in the front grill with their switch in the proper place on the dash, the trumpet exhaust exiting through the rear valance, the rally pack gauges and it’s 289 high-performance tags. While the car was being restored new LED sequential rear tail light fixtures were added as well as dual chrome side mirrors, a fresh trunk lining kit, all of the books and records as well as a Chrome water pump, chrome alternator, chrome pulleys, chrome coil and air cleaner were added to the engine bay.
The car has a white convertible top which is in good condition with no rips or tears, it’s original black boot cover, and comes with its original C4 transmission. All of the instruments, lights, heater fan etc. working properly.
It is an EXTREMELY strong runner due to the upgraded high-performance engine and the great addition of a f5 speed manual transmission. 100% ready to drive, needs nothing. This rare first year, GT convertible is ready to go. Please feel free to call me with any questions, for more pictures or video.
