Mustang Fastback and Sportsroof models

The Mustang was initially offered as a hardtop and a convertible. The 1965 fastback was introduced in September 1964. The proportions of the FB are similar to the coupe and convertible models. The front fenders, hood and doors are all interchangeable. The wheelbase is the same on all three models. The fastback featured a sloping, streaming rear roofline reminiscent of early E type Jaguar and Porsche 356. The roof slopes down and ends about half way back into the rear quarter panel. To accommodate the roofline, the '65-'66 Mustangs have a shorter trunk lid and less storage space than the coupe and convertible cars.

The FB was also called the 2+2. This designation refers to the rear interior panel which could be folded down flat for additional storage, or up for two more seats. The legroom in the rear was cramped, not really suitable for two adults on a long trip. When the seat was folded flat, you could open a hinged trap door that gave you a continuous void space from the trunk to the rear passenger compartment. This not only increased the storage area, it was especially useful for carrying long items such as fishing poles or skis.

The rear roof pillar incorporated the "silent flow" vent, a triangular cut out that blended with the roofline . The exterior of the vent sported six pillars that look as ominous as a sharks gills ! Inside the car was a control knob that opened and closed the vent.

The 1966 fastback kept the same proportions as it's predecessor, with only minor cosmetic trim changes. In 1967 all the Mustang were restyled. The roofline of the '67-'68 fastback was extended all the way back to the rear taillight panel. The trunk lid was incorporated into the rear roofline . The car came standard with a rear seat. Unlike the earlier models, the fold down version was an extra cost option.

Fastbacks are meeting prices for comparable convertibles. Fewer early fastbacks survived than convertible Mustangs. Many were hot-rodded to imitate Shelby image, raced, wrecked , not preserved etc. Ford has re-released the Shelby and other hi performance Mustangs, sparking interest in the early cars. Notice how all the new Pony's resemble the fastback !? Good driver condition cars will cost $26,0000 on up, more for K code cars, Mach and other special editions. The Fastbacks will continue to climb in value.
