"I wanted a Mustang. Everybody in 1965 wanted a Mustang. I wanted a coupe but my husband wanted a convertible. He won and I'm very happy. I kept it because I couldn't afford to trade it in, and it became a member of the family."

Lyn Adams has driven her 1965 Mustang convertible continuously since 1965. She didn't park it, ever, saying, "I couldn't afford to trade it in. Every time I'd look at new cars, I'd think 'it runs really well, you love it, keep it. '"

Lyn recalled car-pooling seven children to school for "I don't know how many years," with four in the back, two in the front passenger seat, and one in her lap. "They'd put me in jail for that now," she laughed.

The interior is in amazingly good condition for the miles, a whopping 509,920.4—the odometer had turned over five times. The seat upholstery, Deluxe from the factory, is also original—"People ask, well why haven't you replaced it. I say because it hasn't torn yet."

The cars are safe and in mostly dry conditions, so getting them up and going shouldn't be that bad, the van being the easier, with a half -finished engine swap still in the Charger. Original Owner 1965 Convertible With Half A Million Miles !

The 289 has been rebuilt three times and the C4 automatic twice. "I don't think it needed it the second time, but I didn't take a chance. I was leaving for Pensacola." The trip was almost 1,000 miles each way, so the half-million miles makes sense now. Lyn has been attending MCA shows for the past five years, including New Hampshire and St. Augustine (FL). Plus, she drove her new Mustang cross country in 1965 from California to Virginia.

"They were rolling it off the truck as we were looking at cars so that's why I know that the dealership did not add things to it. I saw it come off the truck. The console, the convertible, the wire wheel covers, the pony interior, they were all extras. They all kept jumping the price up."

The Mustang's price was $3,600, almost $1,200 more than Lyn had saved. Today, she is very happy that she gave in and bought the car her husband wanted, saying, "I was of the generation that you did what your husband told you to do, so we bought this car, and I came up with the extra money to pay for it. Incidentally, the car lasted, he didn't. I still have the car. I don't have him."
