The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The earliest versions are often referred to as 1964½ models, but
VIN coded by Ford and titled as 1965 models with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964. The new car was introduced to the public on April 17,
1964 at the New York World’s Fair.
