Ford destroyed all their pre-1967 records (computer records were volumous in those days, and no one thought they'd be needed again). No one knows anything exact about production before then, although there are some educated guesses based on registries.
There are certainly other Caspian Blues out there!
Although the original records for '64.5 - 66 cars are not available, the Mustang Production Guide has percentages based on the cars reported in their database. Since the numbers are not truly random, they can only be used as estimates.
With that in mind, the guide reports that 7.4% of '64.5 cars and 9.7% of '65 models were painted Caspian Blue. Using known production figures of 28,833 '64.5 and 73,112 '65 convertibles, you can estimate that 2,134 convertibles were Caspian Blue in '64.5, and 7,092 Caspian Blue convertibles were made in '65.

I read that an 87-93 booster would bolt right up to my current manual setup with manual brake pedal. Has anyone done this? Does it actually fit? Seems to be a cheap upgrade rather than spending the cash for a new booster and pedal combo.
The engine bay thread got me thinking... it's nice to put a car to the screen names. On a car forum a pic of your engine bay is like a glimpse into your soul. But what about the rest of the car?
Here's the rules. Three pictures: exterior, interior, engine bay. Any angle is fine.
If you do some...
Hey guys, I’ve got a vacuum leak coming from my carburetor spacer. I used new gaskets when I was installing it, but the engine increases in RPM when I spray carb cleaner on it. Car has a hissing sound when running and doesn’t idle smooth.
How can I ensure I install the new carburetor gaskets...
