  1. Completely new “feeling” of the driving experience,suddenly driving becomes style as well as substance,a new era has begun/beggining

  2. I bought the very first 1964 1/2 Mustang in Charleston SC. I had to leave it with the dealer to have in the showroom as it was the only one he had to show at the time. It was a white car with red interior, six cylinders, straight shift, white wall tires, radio and heater. I loved it and still wish I had kept it. t was a real head turner at the time. I believe the sticker price at the time was $ 2,500. Oh, for the good old days. I have always thought Ford should make an almost exact replica of that car. It would be a best seller.

  3. I love them. I had a used 66 289 4 spd GT back in 1971. That was a great car would love to have another. I have a 1989 fox body hatch with a 5.0 LX now and love it. Had a 1989 fox body GT hatch.

  4. I love them! I have an unrestored ‘65 that looks exactly like the one in the picture. It starts right up and runs great! I bought it in the mid ‘90’s for my daughters to drive to HS.

  5. Finest “sports car” Ford has made to date. Owned 8: 2 fastbacks (Hi-Po &Shelby Hertz) 6 convertibles (2GTs/ all 225hp/last 2 with a/c). Probably why, there are still outfits “manufacturing” replicas. Special Interest”: an outfit in Oakville Ontario used to be able to provide me with NOS parts (complete inventory) to allow me to restore each 1 to “factory original” AND sell accordingly. Not too bad, for a guy who had time on his hands AND the then ability, to have each and every component, repaired/re-furbished/restored by “craftsmen” who “specialized ONLY in that particular component/ a Generation, LOST forever.

  6. I’ve never see the appeal. The fastbacks are a nice looking car but the coupes look like a small runabout boat.

    The vast majority of them I’ve ever seen are automatics, which also limits their apple to me.

    They’re very popular, but quite a ways down on my list of cars I’d potentially purchase.

  7. Was a revolutionary design that took the auto manufacturers by storm and changed their direction 65 & 66 fastbacks were perhaps the best pony designs of all !

  8. I say it’s an early 65 Mustang. The 54’s and 65’s had a 260 cid. The 66 was available with the 289 cid. I stand on 1965 Mustang.

  9. God bless Lee Iacocca and his marketing genius! The very 1st will always be the iconic benchmark, for everyone else to follow. Decades ago, it was once said; “The first generation of the Ford Mustang will never reach “collector car” status, because way too many were made.” Haaaa! You want to really appreciate the 1st generation Mustang, then watch the movie Ford vs Ferrari!
