The Mustang, was introduced in April 1964, was built on the

compact Falcon’s platform and came with a Falcon suspension--soft

springs and four-wheel drum brakes. The '64½ was actually

considered a '65 by Ford, but many people now use the terms to

differentiate changes made by Ford after mid-August 1964. At this

time there were engine changes, the Mustang switched from a

generator to an alternator plus interior and exterior color

revisions. The car was 181 inches long. It was originally offered

with three engines—a 170 C.I. six cylinder, a 260 C.I. 2 bbl V8

or a 289 C.I. 4 bbl V8 and came with a three-speed, four-speed or

automatic.
