around 7 seconds for the 4bbl 289 with a 4 speed, and upwards of 11 seconds for the I6 with the automatic

This can vary widely as this car was available with several different engine and transmission packages. Obviously a Mustang with the 170 cubic inch in-line 6 would not be as quick as a Mustang with a 289 4 barrel. The earlier models had a 260 V8, the later models had the more powerful 289.

The Mustang with the 289 4 barrel would go from 0 to 60 in about 7.5 seconds. Quarter mile in about 15.4 seconds @ 89 MPH.

In comparison the new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic economy car LTZ is just a tick slower. 0 to 60 in 7.8 seconds and quarter in 15.9. Not too shabby for something that will get you more than 40 MPG.

1964 Shelby Cobra 289 (288.5 cu in engine) 0-60 mph 5.8 Quarter Mile 13.7

This was the highest performance Mustang available in 1964. At the other end of the spectrum the 0-60 times for a Mustang with a 170 CID six cylinder with the A/C running is probably takes three or four times as much time to reach 60.

The 1964 came with the inline 6 cyl. and the 260 V8 . The 6 will probably be pretty slow but the 260 V8 if it has been rehabbed will probably get along pretty good , ya won't smoke a corvette but it will get over the real estate !

It depends on the engine. A car that old probably does not have original parts. Are you asking about an original or refurbished car?

it all depends on the engine and how the car is tuned and set up or if it has aftermarket parts
