Come to see the 2018 Feature Car: The first Ford Mustang!
Gail Wise, the 76-year-old owner of the first Ford Mustang, kept the car she purchased in her garage for 27 years. Now experts value of the sky blue convertible between $350,000 and $450,000, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Wise was only 22 years old when she purchased the vehicle in 1964 for $3,447.50. Nearly 16 years later, when the car stopped running, her husband Tom promised to restore it when he retired. He soon realized his wife purchased the car one day before the person who claimed to have the first model. To read more about this Ford Mustang click here.
