When it was introduced in mid 1964. Hence he 64 1/2 designation, the Indy 500 pace car was actually a Mustang convertible. Also, the movie Goldfinger featured an early Mustang convertible which James Bond’s famous Aston Martin slashed. It is widely debated whether this was actually a Wimbledon White or Phoenician Yellow sample. In actuality, Sally was originally Phoenician Yellow. A color available for 1964 1/2 Mustangs and eventually discontinued on Feb of 65. This gave way to the popular Springtime Yellow.

Some shots from the scene in Goldfinger below. Ford had to rush it for the shoot finding an example in Switzerland. Now is it white or yellow? Yellow with red interior? only in the 60s. But then again that was the beauty of the Stang. And the reason behind its marketing success. You could have it any way you want. Just tick off the spec sheet and place your order. It was truly a personal car. And the rest was automotive history. No pony car would ever come close.

By the way, one of Goldfinger’s most popularized characters was Pussy Galore. Though it wasn’t her driving this Stang.goldfinger_conv5.jpg
