Lot 133: Ford Mustang 289 Fastback
The Ford Mustang of April 1964 still holds the record as the most successful Ford ever launched. Selling over 600,000 in the first production year. This actually spanned from April 1964 to August 1966 but it is still some achievement. The brainchild of one time car salesman come Ford Vice-President, Lee Iaccoca, the Mustang was aimed at the 1960's baby-boomers and at the European imports flooding into America. It was hugely effective in both aims. This 1965 Fastback was built at the Dearborn plant in Michigan and left the plant on the 28th January 1965. The Vin No shows that the car was a 289, 4 Valve, automatic Fastback. Since then the car has been transformed and now sports a 289 bored to + 030equipped with 302 heads, Edelbrock performance cam, four barrel 650CFM carb, MSD electronic ignition system, Hooker 8 branch headers, Flowmaster dual exhaust and Locker differential. Since landing in the UK in April 2007, the car has been the subject of over �4000 worth of expenditure, which included all new shocks, new brakes, ball joints, steering arms, all the necessary MoT changes for UK use, new steering wheel and a great deal more, which is detailed in the file. Finished in gleaming black, the body on this car is arrow straight, the black interior is super clean and has the fold-down rear seat, fire extinguisher and Sun Pro programmable Rev counter. To put this car on the road today would cost around �25,000. This is made up of purchase price of $30,000 (�16000), Shipping $1500+ (�1000) UKDuty and VAT �4675. That adds up to �21,675 before it is MoT tested.
