Can you imagine keeping a car for 60 years? It would be like buying a new model off the showroom floor today and owning it until 2084. I’m having a hard time even wrapping around my head around what the world might be like in 2084 – at least as far as the automotive hobby is concerned. This car has been with the seller for six decades, and it’s finally being offered up to a worthy home:

The Pick of the Day is a 1964 Ford Mustang coupe listed for sale on by a private seller in Lenexa, Kansas. (Click the link to view the listing)

“After spending 60 years together, the time has sadly come where I must say farewell to my 1964 ½ Mustang. I bought the 260 V8 C4 three-speed automatic transmission Mustang coupe in May 1964 after seeing the first Mustangs put on display at the New York World’s Fair,” the seller says. “It was love at first sight.”

The Mustang’s beginnings, at least in terms of what the public knew, started out on February 6, 1964 when Lee Iacocca, Vice President of Ford Motor Company, issued a press release saying: “Ford Division confirmed today that it will introduce a new line of cars this spring. This new line of cars will be called the Mustang.” The official debut took place on April 14 at the “Wonder Rotunda” at the World’s Fair. One of the ways that Ford showcased the car was by offering people a 12-minute ride called the Magic Skyway in a Mustang convertible. The car was an instant hit. Over 418,000 units were sold in the Mustang’s first year, and one of them was the car we see featured in the classifieds today.

The seller says that a restoration was completed in 2005. A few upgrades were added at the time including a larger sway bar, a set of fog lamps, a Pertronix electronic ignition system, and sequential rear turn signals. The listing says that this specific car was also featured in Mustang 50th Anniversary festivities in 2014 and was later published in a magazine in 2017.

“I hate to say goodbye. Looking for a buyer who will give my longtime companion a good home in the years to come,” the seller says.

The asking price is $25,900. Included with the sale are spare parts such as seat belt buckles, horns, a generator, an AM radio, a gear shift handle, and even spare hubcaps.
