The first serialised Mustang (VIN 001) produced in 1964 sported the same colour, with a three-speed manual gearbox and a V8 engine. It's been the best-selling sports auto in the world over the last three years. Interestingly, while you can buy a standard white Mustang in showrooms in the United States today, this particular shade, Wimbledon White is actually not on offer.

As you'd expect, Ford has specced its modern milestone vehicle to match the original. sort of. "It's changed the perception because of its popularity".
