|"HI PERF" marking shown in the trunk of an original paint 1964 1/2 Mustang Coupe with the K Code 289 HiPo Option. It is a bit difficult to make out the "F" in this particular image, but it is there.|
As I mentioned, we will be featuring a "new" car on our Blog here soon. It is an early 289 High Performance equipped Mustang Coupe with a scheduled build date of June 8, 1964 in the Dearborn plant. It will not be a complete restoration like our HiPo Mustang Convertible, because it is an original paint car in pretty nice condition.
We will be sharing lots of little details on this original car as they are uncovered. Today, we will take a quick look at some really cool factory markings in the trunk. I wish the picture captured it better, but I believe you can make it out pretty well. You will see "HI PERF" marked on the panel in front of the gas tank. This was obviously applied before the body color paint was applied.
If any of our readers have markings on their HiPo Mustang like this, please send us a picture and indicate the scheduled build date and production plant of the Mustang.
