Description

The Ford Mustang is an American automobile, originally based on the Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964, and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on April 17, 1964, and via all three American television networks on April 19. It was one of the most successful product launch in automotive history.

The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market.. The Mustang remains in production today after 43 years and several revisions.

Assembly: Dearborn, MI

 

The River Rouge Plant (commonly known as the Rouge Complex or just The Rouge) is a Ford Motor Company automobile factory complex located in Dearborn, Michigan at the confluence of the Rouge and Detroit rivers and Zug island. Construction began in 1917, and when it was completed in 1928 it had become the largest integrated factory in the world.

The Rouge measures 1.5 mi (2.4 km) wide by 1 mi (1.6 km) long, including 93 buildings with nearly 16 million square feet (1.5 km²) of factory floor space. With its own docks in the dredged Rouge River, 100 miles (160 km) of interior railroad track, its own electricity plant, and ore processing, the titanic Rouge was able to turn raw materials into running vehicles within this single complex. Over 100,000 workers were employed there in the 1930s.

After the 1960s, Ford began to decentralize manufacturing, building many factories across the country. The Rouge, too, was downsized, with many units (including the famous furnaces and docks) sold off to independent companies.

 

Engine: 8 Cyl. 289 CID

 

At introduction, the 289 CID two-barrel engine shared the spotlight with the 260 CID F-Code but offered an additional 46 HP and 29 CID. This over-bored version of the 260 generated 210 HP. Early production V-8 engines were equipped with generators instead of alternators.

The Particulars:

    This body is straight but showing rust as it sits.  Interior is complete but needs restoration.  No visible holes in the floor, but that is not guarantee.   Windshield is clear and no cracks.  This would be good for an intermediate restoration.
