1964 1⁄2 Mustang Coupe
Owner: Renee Breads

In choosing a Second Runner-Up, the choice became much more difficult. It was tough to decide for sure. In the end, Renee Breads’ coupe was the majority winner for this award. The exterior lines are super simple and covered in a factory color for easy repair. And that’s a good thing seeing as this is Renee’s daily driver.

Equipped with a late-model 3V 4.6-liter and five-speed manual powertrain, this coupe offers improved and reliable performance, as well as an interior that envelopes its occupants with custom upholstery and modern amenities. If you’re not into racing, this might be your ideal ride, but we don’t doubt this coupe can turn just as well as it sits in traffic. -Photos by Cesar Andre
