Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: The Very First Mustang Hardtop

How about a Mustang that’s unlike any other on this planet? At Mecum’s May 16-20 Indianapolis sale, they’re going to auction off this 1965 Ford Mustang—three-speed transmission, 13-inch wheels and an inline six. The big feature? It carries serial number 00002, making it the first Mustang hardtop to receive a VIN. It is one of the 150 to 180 pre-production Mustangs built between February 10 and March 5, 1964. It looks beautiful in Caspian Blue, and estimate is $450,000-$650,000. This is some serious automobile history, folks. Details can be found here.

Looks like a no-sale at $300,000. That would have been maybe $50,000 for the nicest six-cylinder Mustang around, plus a quarter million bonus for the serial number.
