Mustangs built between March 1964 and August 17, 1964 were identified as 1964 Mustangs, or early 1965 Mustangs. Mustangs built after the date of August 17, 1964 were identified as late 1965 Mustangs.
The first year mustang, later called the 1964, was available in two models: the coupe and the convertible. Both of these models featured lengthened hoods and shorter rear decks than the prototypes, also chrome wrap-around bumpers and grilles with a running hose, and full wheel covers. Both the coupe and the convertible were available with a 170cid 101horsepower 6 cylinder engine, a 260 2-V 164 horsepower V-8, a 289-4V 210 horsepower V-8, and beginning in June, a powerful 4 barrel, solid lifter, 289cid 271 horsepower V-8 engine. 

Also available were a 3 speed, 4 speed, or automatic transmission, and a pick between a variety of rear end gear ratios. Featured in the interior was "wall-to-wall" carpeting, front bucket seats, or an optional front bench seat, rear bench seat, a sports car style steering wheel, floor mounted shifter, and full headliner. A total of 121,538 Mustangs were produced during the 1964 model run.

1965 brought few changes for the Mustang. The biggest change was the availability of a new fastback model, which was to become the basis for Carroll Shelby's G.T. 350. The 120 horsepower, 200 cid 6 cylinder engine replaced the 170 cid 6 cylinder, the 289-2V, 200 horsepower V-8 replaced the 260-2V, the 289-4V was upgraded to 225 horsepower, and the 289-4V hi-po remained unchanged. Other changes for 1965 included: an alternator instead of a generator, relocation of the oil filler, integral power steering pump and resevoir (most 64's had a remote mounted resevoir), a wire retaining ring was added to the gas cap, the horns were smaller and relocated, and the interior carpet was continued up the sides of the rocker panel and under the sill plate. 

A new interior option was added, the interior decor group (known as the pony interior), which featured special seat covers with running horses across the back, special interior door panes with integral arm rests and pistol grip door handles, five gauge instrument panel, woodgrain steering wheel, and woodgrain appliques on the instrument cluster, glovebox, and optionally on the center console. Another option introduced in April of 1965 was the GT equipment group. Available only with one of the two four barrel engines, the GT group included five-dial instrumentation, disc brakes, larger sway bars, quicker steering ratio, dual exhaust which exited through the rear valance panel, grill mounted foglights, and special lower body side stripes. A total of 559,451 Mustangs were produced for the 1965 model year.
