64 - 73 Ford Mustang Parts

The 1964 - 1973 early Mustangs spawned a fantastic new generation of American automobiles. This era of Ford Mustangs would later come to be known as pony cars. These Mustangs, with their long front ends, short rear decks and sporty looks, made the 1964 - 1973 Mustangs a Manufactures dream. Many manufactures tried to duplicate this Mustang but couldnt come close to capturing the spirit that this orignal Ford Mustang brought to the car buyers.

original 1964 mustang ad The 1964 Ford Mustang, Later called the 1964 1/2 Mustang , was only available in two models: the Mustang coupe and the Mustang convertible.

Both Mustang models were available with a 170 cid, 101 horsepower, 6 cylinder engine, a 260-2V, 164 horsepower V-8, a 289-4V, 210 horsepower V-8 and, starting in June, a 4 barrel, solid lifter, 271 horsepower, 289 cid V-8 engine.
