The North American based automaker Ford has decided to revive the classic 1964 – 1966 Mustang, with the prices starting at 15.000 USD, but it won’t be as easy as going to a dealership and ordering the classic vehicle.
According to Ford, future customers of the classic Mustang will be able to order a new body-shell of the first generation model, including the convertible version, and they will have to “restore” it themselves by using Ford approved classic parts.
Ford says that the new Mustang body shell is using a modern steel and welding technique which makes it stronger and more reliable than the original. Once the body shell has been bought, the customer will need “goodies” like powertrain, brakes, suspension, electrical system or interior trim, which can be taken from an existing first-generation Mustang or purchased from suppliers.
The classic 1964 – 1966 Ford Mustang body shell can be bought for 15.000 USD, but spend your money wisely because restoring a car, especially a classic one, will most likely ruin your budget.
As a reminder, the Ford Mustang originally appeared back in 1964 and the first generation of the popular vehicle was made until 1973. The mustang takes its name from the P-51 Mustang fighter from World War II and the first generation was being powered by the 2.8 liter Falcon engine, which was developing 101 HP, but it was soon replaced with a 4.7 liter V8.
