AS Ford’s iconic Mustang celebrates its 50th anniversary, a1964 Mustang 1/2 Coupe, produced as part of the earliest production run of the iconic car, is ready to go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ May Sale on May 24th.

Regarded as the purest of all Mustangs, this rare car, estimated between £14,000 to £18,000, was built at Ford's Dearborn Michigan plant on 26th June 1964. Crucially it still has its original 260CI V8 Engine and Cruise-O-Matic transmission.

Originally sold to a Mr. Alan G. Winslow of Virginia in October 1964, the current vendor purchased the car in 2005 and brought it to the UK, making this a two-owner car.

Commenting on the car, Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “The Ford Mustang constantly figures in the world’s top ten favourite classics and with the price guide set here, this is a great value entry into that exclusive club.”

The sale of the car comes amid the 50th anniversary of the original and greatest ‘pony car’ as well as the launch of a new model later this year.

Nick added: “This year’s Silverstone Classic will be celebrating the anniversary of the model and taking ownership of this car could be a wonderful opportunity to get involved.”
