I've seen ideas from using a punch to push the pin in until it clears the plastic handle, to destroying the old one and pulling the pin out. Check some of the Mustang forums for how others "handled" it. No pun intended.

2006 GT, Strut Tower Brace, Gas Hood Struts, FR Intake Plenum cover, Metal Fuse Box cover, Moroso brake reservoir cover, Rear shock tower brace, Front Bumper Lip Spoiler, JVC DVD Head unit w/ back-up camera, satellite Radio and USB input, 2 - 12" sub-woofers, 4 - 6"x8" speakers, 2 - 6.5" speakers to replace the door subs, 3 amplifiers, LED lights under the hood and in the trunk, chrome e-handle on parking brake handle, chrome cup holder trim, and trunk lid cover with running pony emblem.

I had to cut my old handle out on my 65, the pin was stuck solid. I did try to punch it out with no luck.
Once the handle is cut away, the pin is a lot easier to get out.
The new handle and pin went together easily.
