Original Owners Poster

We are looking for 1964 ½-1973 Original Owners or Legacy Family Members of the Mustang...

At the 45th Anniversary of the Mustang eleven original owners of 1964 ½ Mustangs got together to share their stories... Now we are trying to find more original Mustang Owners with cars from 1964 ½ through 1973.

Click the picture above and fill out the Registration Form and we will try and get a registry together and arrange to have us meet at the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang – we hope it will be at the Ford Motor Company Headquarters.
