This is probably one of the most valuable Mustangs that there is. How valuable? Well, it’s the first “K-code” Mustang, the first one fitted with the High Performance 289 V8. It’s also one of the 180 or so pre-production Mustangs assembled before the Job One date of March 9, 1964. It was built specifically for Henry Ford II, aka “Hank the Deuce” with many custom touches installed by Ford Design, including a full leather interior, a leather roof and headliner and real teakwood panels. When Art Cairo bought it for $1,000 in 1974, he knew it was possibly a Ford family car but it wasn’t until he was interviewing Edsel B. Ford II for a Mustang publication that he found out that it had been built for Edsel’s father, who headed Ford Motor Company when the Mustang was being developed and first built.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
