Hi:

I am interested in buying a 64-69, either coupe or covert. This will be a second car that my wife will use locally, so it will not be a garage queen.

I am looking for thoughts on which model would be the most user friendly.

A/T, PS, PB and A/C will be "musts."

I know it will be hard to find all those features. Which, if any, can be retrofitted?

Thanks

Sam

All the early Mustangs offered those options. You can easily retrofit them. There are many companies that cater to the early Mustang crowd. I happen to be biased towards the 65 myself. :)

Hi, I would go with a 68 or newer because of the steering column, the 68 was the first year of collapsible columns and they are a little bit safer John

For safety and selection based on your options, your best bet would be a 68 or 69. In late 1967 they passed a law making seat belts mandatory. In early 67 and before no safety equipment except a rear view mirror. Heck not many early first gen's even had emergency flashers. Convertables are hard to come by and are going for a pretty penny. Most of the fast backs are getting scooped up because of the Eleanor craze. That been said you can probably find yourself a good condition "little ol' lady coupe" with PS, PB AC and if you can find a GT, yes they did make GT coupes, you can get disc brakes too. Hope that helps.
