My family owns a 64½ Mustang convertible. Has always been called that. My stepfather was the 2nd owner, purchasing it from a co-worker. He went with the co-worker to help pick it out when it was purchased new. They were called 64½ because Ford began selling them in the spring of 1964.

The caption is incorrect. There were no “1964” Mustangs. All first year Mustangs were sold as 1965 models. Introduced five months prior to the 1965 model year, they have been called “1964 ½”, however. But the titles read 1965.
