    If that truly is a 1964 1/2, that was the first year they were made and that is a collectors item from $#^^%%^*&*%!!! Advertise this better and you should be able to get twice that much.

    Is the speedo needle resting in the 80 mph range? Or just my bad eyes?

    Thanks for the replies...

    Yes it's a 64 1/2. Actually it was made in the first 2 weeks of Mustang production.

    I'm only selling because i need the money. My kids tuition... Also, with three little kids and other interests vying for my time, it's time for someone else to take over stewardship. I maybe get a chance to drive it once or twice a month.

    As for the speedo, good catch! It is resting up there really high. When i reinstalled the cable after changing a light bulb in the panel, i didn't quite get it seated right. I'll have some time this weekend to putz around with it and get it sorted. It's kinda tough to get your hand in there and thread it back towards yourself, but no more than a 5 minute job (famous last words right? :))

    I think a patient seller could get more than what i'm asking for, but it's a tough economy. I'll definitely lose quite a few thousand dollars on it, but i didn't restore it to make money. It feels good to preserve such a cool piece of American history. When i bought it it was a solid car mechanically, but the paint was going south quickly and the interior was extremely rough. It was easy to envision it sliding into the abyss of neglect. That should just not happen to cars like this.
