The all new Ford Mustang - Price, Sporty Looks, Economy and Performance in one package.

1964 Ford Mustang

The big news in 1964 was the introduction of the Ford Mustang which got it's first debut at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York on April 17, 1964. It combined it sporty looks, economy, and performance in a package that had an affordable price tag. The Mustang had enough options that you could have it as an economy car to a luxury sports car. It had an extended hood, shortened rear deck, sculptured body panels, and sporty bucket seats and was still able to be a family sized sedan that you could get groceries with.

The Mustang set records that have yet to be broken today. In 1964 Ford produced 97,705 Hardtop Coupes and 28,833 Convertibles. The base price for the Coupe started at $2368.00.

Owners of the new Mustang's reported on finding the Fountain of Youth in a sports car. Other owners exclaimed "Ford has made three cars, the Model T, the Model A and the Mustang" It was clear that people of all generations loved the new Ford Mustang.

Their was an unusually large range in reported gas mileage. Figures ranged from 8mpg in the city to a staggering 31mpg on long trips. Part of the varying results may be due to the large number of engine and transmission options available to the end consumer.
