Carla Coleman’s Father Bought This ’65 Fastback Brand-New. She And Husband Jerry Have Rebuilt It Into A Modern Cruiser
In November 1964, Charles Modesitt placed an order for a Rangoon Red ’65 Mustang fastback. While most buyers chose the new fastback body style for its sporty looks, Charles and his wife Shirley had a more practical reason-they liked the fold-down rear seat because it provided a convenient place for their 3-year-old daughter, Carla, to sleep while traveling. Other than the C-code 289, the car had no other options, not even a radio.
