The term “Pony Car” is widely used to describe mid-sixties era, compact size muscle cars, namely the Camaro, Firebird and of course the term’s namesake and car that started it all . . . Mustang.
Young drivers had been snapping up sporty bucket-seat versions of Chevrolet’s Corvair with its European-style rear-engine design. So, Ford’s Lee Iacocca felt that Ford–Chevrolet’s main rival–could beat the Corvair with a conventional front-engine sporty car, which would be more easily understood by most Americans.
The Mustang had the long-hood/short-rear-end design of post-World War II sports cars and initially was sold as a coupe and convertible and as a semi-fastback model with a fold-down rear seatback, added in September, 1964.
This unbelievable time capsule is about as original as you will ever see! And it’s only been driven a remarkable 5,752 miles since new! But what’s really amazing is how incredibly beautiful this car is! There are plenty of low mile examples of early Pony and Muscle cars out there, but we’ve bet that you’ve never seen an all-original Mustang like this one! The car looks like it’s been completely restored. Except, it hasn’t! The paint, interior, engine compartment and undercarriage are beautifully preserved. It’s a car you need to see in person to truly appreciate. But, don’t wait too long! It’ll be gone in no time!
