SERIALIZED MUSTANG TO BE AUCTIONED

Image result for first ford mustang to be auctioned

 

(FoxNews) – An original Ford Mustang claimed to be the first hard-top example is
coming up for auction. It will go under the hammer at Mecum’s Indy 2017 auction
in mid-May.

This is a 1965 Mustang with VIN ending in 00002, meaning it comes after the 1965 Mustang convertible with VIN ending in 00001 currently sitting in The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Both of these were pre-production examples,
hence the 1965 model year. The first production examples were famously sold
as 1964½ models.
