Usually you want a 1964.5 Ford Mustang convertible for its rarity... but this one is so much more than just that. It's a restomod with a powerful fuel-injected V8, upgraded suspension, five-speed stick, and a terrific A/C interior. This is exactly how to get the best of everything in one iconic package.
Everyone is on the lookout for a 1964.5 convertible. They have the appeal of being the first to launch this iconic American, and one of the rarest versions of them all. Plus, the black paint adds even more attention-grabbing allure. The dark mirror shine on the convertible body is the most intimating way to distinguish your Mustang from the more friendly pony cars out there. But from the first moment you lay eyes on this one, your thoughts are just as much about a modern mean machine as they are about a classic design. After, all the modern headlights make this pony car look like the glowing eyes of a hungry panther. Those Rocket five-spoke alloys are another instant clue to this car's modern performance.
Under the white folding roof is a fantastic red interior. This just seems like the perfect color for an aggressive Mustang like this. The bucket seats, carpets, door panels, and dash all have benefited from an investment during restoration that makes them feel quite fresh. With the top down, it looks like a volcano with red-hot lava at its core. More than just a terrific first impression, the interior has all the right features to make you happy. You get all the right classic Mustang driver elements like the three-spoke sports steering wheel and extra long speedometer flanked by round auxiliary readouts. There are also some great modern upgrades in this restomod, too. You get a cup holder center console, power steering, and an alarm system. Plus, there's an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD/XM unit that's connected to a subwoofer stereo system. And ice-cold R134a air conditioning lets you stay as cool as you look behind the wheel.
Under the hood of this Ford icon is another blue oval legend but a much more modern one. Just as the bright valve covers will tell you, this is a Ford Racing motor. The 302 cubic-inch V8 is already powerful right out of the box, but then it also received more go-fast goodies like a Holley electronic fuel-injection kit, Street Fighter ignition, MSD cap, and BBK long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this powerful V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the T5 five-speed manual transmission. As you look at how clean the undercarriage photos are, you can really tell that there are only about 2,000 miles on this one since completing restoration. While you're looking down there, don't forget to spot all the performance driving upgrades, such as the full Ridetech suspension with Fox shocks and adjustable coilovers. Plus, stopping is well in control, too, thanks to a Wilwood four-wheel disc brake upgrade and the modern grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires.
Complete with a ton of build receipts and owner's manual, this is the rare Mustang droptop that's also your restomod dream. Don't let something this unique slip away. Call now!
