Woman Who Bought First Ford Mustang Still Has It

One of my all-time favorite iconic cars is the Ford Mustang, especially the original. With Ford Motor Company ready to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang next year, they’ve tracked down the person who bought the first Mustang back in 1964, and she still has it!

According to  an article by David Kiley/AOLAutos, on

“Gail Wise was a 22-year school teacher looking for her first car, and she didn’t want to drive her folks’ 1957 Fairlane any longer. Johnson Ford in Chicago sold Wise her first set of wheels on April 15, 1964 not knowing it would be a classic. And wouldn’t you know it – she still has the keys and the car in her garage.

She actually bought it a couple of days before Ford President Lee Iacocca introduced the car at the World’s Fair. Her dealer didn’t know he was so supposed to hold them back until the big announcement.

The sparkling ragtop she and her husband enjoy today, though, went through some bad times. It sat decaying in their garage for 27 years until Wise’s husband, Tom, had it restored. The car looks spectacular today.”
