1964-65 NY World's Fair license plate
1964-65 NY World's Fair license plate
I wasn't old enough to drive in 1964 but my parents had a car, I believe it was a Dodge Polara, and we visited this World's Fair in Flushing Meadows three or four times... sorry, but looking at this license plate makes me feel very nostalgic!

1965 Mustang GT
1965 Mustang GT "fastback" 2+2
The Ford Mustang was introduced at the New York World's Fair in 1964. Over 20,000 Mustangs were sold in the first week of public release. Soon after, buyers demanded improved handling and performance. In response, Ford announced the GT ("Grand Turismo") option in April 1965. The GTs had larger engines and gas tanks, heavier suspension and springs, and better steering.

This gorgeous 1965 GT fastback is a highly optioned, completely restored Shelby clone. It has beautiful blue paint, a black interior, Rally pac, custom Mustang floor mats, dual exhaust pipes that exit the rear valence through decorative chrome trumpets, front fog lights, automatic transmission, disc brakes, and factory air conditioning. The rear seats fold forward to create a two-seater with a spacious interior cargo compartment. Under the hood is a 289 V8 engine, 4 barrel carburator, a chrome Monte Carlo bar, and a Shelby export brace. The engine compartment is painted the blue body color. There are five styled steel wheels with P205/70R 14 BF Goodrich Radial AT tires. A professionally installed Pioneer AM/FM cassette stereo system is the only "non-original" feature in the car. The vehicle is garage-kept, is routinely serviced, and received its 2001 state inspection in August. Needless to say, this car turns heads wherever it goes!! Vintage GT Mustangs in this fine condition are prized by collectors and car enthusiasts around the world.

It is interesting to note that while Ford chose the name "Mustang" to reflect the spirited image of the P-51 US World War II fighter plane named the Mustang, the public immediately associated the car with the untamed wild horse of the American West. Ford quickly adopted the image of a wild galloping horse as the symbol of this classic car.
