Default 1964 1/2 Mustang emblem placement and question.

So I'm preparring to paint my Mustang this summer and was wondering about two things for my 64 1/2. One, is when, (what month), did Ford change to the "longer" MUSTANG script emblems on the front fenders? I believe the true 64 1/2's emblems were like a 1/2" shorter than the later production 65-66 emblems. Also, if anyone could give me the correct placement, say from the running horse emblems to the Mustang script on the front fenders, I would gladly appreciate it! I will be showing the car as "factory original", thanks.

Very nice article, thanks for the link!! Though it doesn't seem to specify exactly for a 64 1/2? , at least I'm not seeing it. For now I guess I'll place the MUSTANG emblem "in between" the space of the common 65-66 emblem, between the mounting holes. Or, unless an avid 64 1/2' fan tells me otherwise. I still have a few months to decide. Thanks Smitten.

For a 64 1/2 you do want the 4 1/2 inch. As for the date they changed, I would honestly go off the vin. I have a D code which puts me in that category. As for placement I would use the same starting point that I'm aware of, hole closest to your ci badge. At least that's what I have found. I'm makes sense that they use the same spacing, just one is longer.

Thanks again guys. Yes, I do want to use the specific 64 1/2 emblems. My car was built in June of 64' and it's an F code 260 so I'm guessing that the emblems were still being used then. I will base their location off of the link from mustang monthly.
