My Brother in Law has a '64 Mustang with a D-code 289, 4 speed car that was built 4/09/64. It was the 6 thousandth something one made.
It was built before the 4/17 intoduction date.
But the 289 with a generator is the rare part!
Every early Mustang is worth a few bucks more for sure!

I read an article recently in one of the Mustang mags about the sequential VIN numbers not representing the ACTUAL number off the line since there were multiple factories, not all came off sequentially, etc. Still that is a very low number. That article did have some visual cues to watch out for that could help figure out if it was one the World's Fair cars or special demo cars so that could be really cool if it was special like that.

68 Mustang 200 ci, Aussie 250-2V head, Dual Headers, Comp Cams 252H, DSII w/MSD 6AL, T-5, V8 suspension.

65 Ranchero 200 ci, late 170 head, Autolite 1101, 3.03 3 speed, Maverick 8" 4 lug rear with 3.55 gears.

The last six numbers of the vin should be 100031.

ACTUAL number off the line since there were multiple factories, not all came off sequentially, etc.

That is a true fact there where other cars with that same number except for being built at another factory (or assem. line) location :nod: Even so that would be a very early car :thumbup:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell what "#" Mustang you have or you come across. Ford started production of the Mustangs on March 9, 1964. They were built on the same assembly line as the Falcons. They shared the sequential numbers with the Falcons. There are no records that were kept by Ford. This has been discussed and researched by many. I have a 64 1/2 that was built on April 8, 1964. All I will ever know is that it was built in the first month. As to what "#"? No clue. If a guy is telling you that he has the "31st" Mustang made... He probably has some ocean front property in Arizona to sell, too. But... At a minimum, ask him to prove to you how he is coming to the conclusion that it's the # 31. Do not take it for face value.
