First Ford Mustang Owner

This year Ford is busy celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang. This car has a lot history full of admiration and love that Sanders Ford is excited to be a part of. The spirit of freedom and independence that comes along with the Mustang has inspired drivers for decades. Ford decided to go all the way back and find out the owner of the very first Ford Mustang owner from 1964.

The Ford Mustang has an interesting history. It first premiered at the 1964 World Fair, but Gail Wise already had one. She got the car two days before it was even supposed to go on sale. Wise said she was looking for a car to commute to her new job as a teacher in Chicago. She fell in love with the skylight blue Mustang that was shown to her in the storeroom where it was still covered. She bought it on the spot and immediately became somewhat of a local celebrity. People would wave at her and ask her to slow down so they could get a better look at it.

Wise paid $3214 and never looked back. After she got married the car became her husband’s everyday vehicle before it began to need repairs. In 1971 they put the Mustang away hoping to repair it but never finding the time. 27 year later they finally got it out of storage and had it restored. Wise was thrilled and said it looks just like it did the day she bought it when she was 22. They are now able to use the car as a normal everyday vehicle again and even their grandchildren are infatuated with it.
