164 hp, 260 cu. in. overhead valve V-8 engine, floor-mounted Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, semi-elliptic rear springs with live axle, and hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 108 in.
An early Mustang with virtually unlimited aftermarket parts and ease is one of the most enjoyable entries into the classic car hobby. Offered as a complete package and needing little to enjoy right out of the box, this coupe is perfect for the first time buyer or novice. It has the economical 260 V-8 with 8.8:1 compression and 258 foot-pounds of torque. With features such as an automatic transmission, power steering, air conditioning, and desirable Pony Interior, it has the right components for a great, well-equipped cruiser. This Mustang has been restored, but today it shows some light wear from road use since completion. Nevertheless, the body, red paint, and interior are all in very good order. The white interior, complemented by a white vinyl top, truly makes this “pony car” stand out. An iconic piece of American motoring history, no collection is complete without a V-8 Mustang.
