Sounds like someone has done a disc brake conversion and it would be hard to say which rotor without knowing which conversion kit they used. As stated above the 64 1/2 didn't come with disc brakes.

Technically there is no 64 or 64 1/2 mustangs they are all 65's. The so called "64 1/2" was just an early production 65 and I'm pretty sure they did not come stock with disc brakes. The build date might say 64 but it should still be titled as a 65. Just like the 2010 mustangs that are out now yet it is 2009.

looked up the vin on the car today and its a 65 code A with a 4v(4v is 4 barrel carb correct?) 289. took off the front rotors and its got a 4 piston caliper. the pads were worn down to the rivets and put some serious grooves in the rotor so im ordering some new ones from ca mustang.

got rotors and pads for about 200. got them installed today now were doing the backs. getting some tires on it and driving it to my house to powerwash the years of dirt and crap off of it. ill probably redo most of the suspension in the fall in my suspension class. looks like its in good enough shape to make it well through the summer. im pretty excited for this car and its not even mine. told my cousin i might have to get a copy of thos keys made for me hahah
