1964.5 Ford Mustang D-Code 289 For Sale

1964.5 Ford Mustang D-Code

Triple Red Ford Mustang for sale. This is a rare car – the D-code signifies that this car was manufactured before the Mustang was officially released in 1965 – hence often referred to as a 1964.5. This particular car was car number 66,890 that rolled out of the Michigan plant in 1964. Mustangs were not produced sequentially and shared the production line with other Ford models like the Galaxy and the Thunderbird. So this really is a very early and rare Mustang.

This particular car also has the original and rare pre-release, legendary 289 cubic inch 4 barrel carb V8 Ford engine which only featured as an option in the 1964.5 Mustang. This can be identified by the breather pipe in the back of the block. This was the same block in other fords of the era like the Thunderbird, but in 1965, Ford updated their signature V8 design which featured in the 1965 and 1966 Mustangs.

I found this car in Austin Texas where it had been lovingly cared for by a father and son team who kept it in excellent condition. I shipped the car back to the UK and had some additional work done to get the car through its MOT – even though it isn’t a legal requirement, I felt it was important to ensure the car was in excellent, road worthy condition.

This is not a show car, but it is an excellent Sunday driver that is ready to go. You will struggle to find another original D-code in this condition. All old cars always need something doing to them, particularly to maintain this sort of condition, but this one really is ready to go. Its incredible.

This is a factory correct specification, matching numbers car.

Some Specs:

1964.5 Ford Mustang Coupe 2-door

Body Colour – red with red roof

Trim – correct standard red interior

Manufactured in Dearborn Plant, Michigan, 1964. (number 66,890 for all Fords in that plant that year – a very early Mustang. Most of the Mustangs produced in 1964 were from the Michigan Plant, with some being produced later at the San Jose plant in California)

289 cubic inch 210bhp V8 engine – original matching numbers

4 Barrel Carburettor – original spec

Four Speed Manual Transmission – the one to have (original spec)

Five spoke pressed steel wheels

NOVA certified

DVLA Registered in my name

Full MOT

Previous owner completed this work in the USA:

Uprated disc brakes on the front axel (all original removed factory front brake parts come with the car)

Upgraded distributor (modern coil instead of the factory dyno type coil – so it will start in winter and hold the engine tuning!)

Period correct spare wheel and trunk trim

New Fuel Tank

Work I commissioned in the UK by professional specialists at Ship My Car:

· Replaced drivers door catch

· New full washer bag kit

· Replaced offside rear wheel cylinder and adjusted shoes and handbrake

· Numerous welding repairs to chassis and underside – all visible and full record of work available for inspection to pass UK MOT standard (not undercoated so you can actually see the quality of the work)

· New central rear brake hose

This car is simply in excellent condition and is not a project car! Its not a show winning trailer queen either, but the pictures don’t really do it justice. It starts first time every time and lives garaged with a cover on.



Payment by BACS or cash by arrangement

I am happy to take you out for a test drive. If you want to take it for a test drive, you will need to have proof of insurance and make payment in full.

Offered for sale elsewhere so reserve the right to end the auction at any time.

Thanks for looking!
