1964 Ford Mustang:  not a “show room” only vehicle, or “trailer queen”, but one that I drive probably once every two weeks.  Typically, I take it into Fredericksburg to the coffee shop or very occasionally to the grocery store.  The fellow who restored the car bought it in May of 2002; when he had it appraised in July of 2003, the odometer read 44,444.  Now, it’s just over 50,000, for an average of about 521 miles per year.  I purchased the car on 6/27/2009, when the mileage was 46,885.   So, I’ve put on about the same per-year mileage.

An appraisal was performed by D.H. Auto Appraisals, specifically by Don Henderson.  His notes are that “the car is a very recent (2003) and excellent restoration of an all original car.  Everything has been restored back to the original where needed.  Workmanship is outstanding.”  I would add, however, that there were a few upgrades that 64 1/2s did not have, to wit: a pony interior, dual exhausts, fog lights, GT light bar, a rear valence panel, and a “cobra dress up kit”.

The Warranty data is: 5R08D101078.  It is a D code, 289/4barrel convertible.  It was built on July 21, 1964 in San Jose, California. The other plate information is: 76AD8621G7116.  Originally it was “Dynasty Green”, but was completely repainted in 2004 as “Rangoon Red”.  Where do they get these names?

The car has power steering, automatic transmission, original AC, power top, bucket seats, etc.

The original owner of the car later moved to Houston, Texas.  The restorer of the vehicle, Leland Landry, purchased it in Houston.  Leland is an interesting guy; he’s in his 80’s and restores cars as a hobby.  This is something he’s done for years, but now he has to “sub out” the work due to issues with his age.  He kept a notebook of all work done on the car, and by whom (receipts) as well as a CD with pictures taken during each phase of restoration.

He entered the car in the Mustang Club of Houston Auto Show in Fall 2004, where it was the “Class Winner”.  He also entered the car in the larger Houston AutoRama at the George R. Brown Convention Center in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.  Each year it won “Outstanding in Class“.  I have these awards with me.  The car is garaged here in Fredericksburg and is in outstanding shape.  As an aside, I have taken it out on the open road several times, once to San Antonio and several times to Comfort.  Leland also had it on the road occasionally.  While I’ve only had it  on the Interstate once, I may have hit 100 mph while day dreaming.  May have.  This car not only looks great, it runs as though it were new.  Normally when I’m behind the wheel I’m driving the speed limit, of course……
