1965 Ford Mustang No. 00002

At first glance, this 1965 Mustang -though pristine- comes off as any other vehicle that rolled off the lot at that time. However, a closer look at the serial number on this thing and its value comes into light. And with a serial number of 00002, it’s clear that this ’65 Mustang was a pre-production vehicle. In fact, it’s the first hardtop Mustang ever produced. Period.

Available this Spring through Mecum’s Indy auction, you could indeed own one of the rarest Ford Mustangs on earth. It initially served as a demonstration car alongside the convertible with a serial number of 00001. The ride still features a 170 CI inline 6-cylinder engine complete with a 3-speed manual transmission, a Caspian Blue with Blue crinkle vinyl interior, and rides atop 13-inch wheels. It’s a true original, from which over 9 million Mustangs would be produced ever since. The building block for a great brand? You bet. How much? No official asking price but we’re fairly certain we can’t afford it. [Purchase]
