My understanding is that Ford has assigned the 50th anniversary edition to the 2015 Mustang.

64.5 was a marketing/media designation. The cars were really 65s..

The Mustang was introduced in April, 1964, as a 1965 model. It was way off the normal fall introduction of new models. The first cars had the 170 c.i. six and 260 c.i. V8, which were replaced by the 200-6 and 289-8 after a few months. Many consider the pre-August cars to be 1964 ½ models, but it is not an official designation. To collectors, it makes a car unique and more valuable.

While the first model year was 1965, they decided to put out a 20th anniversary model in the 1984 models. Considering Ford had some problems with the 1981-2 models with the 4.2L V8 and turbo fours, I would imagine they needed all the PR they could find. They did not do a 25th or 30th anniversary edition, but tagged all the 1999 cars as 35th anniversary and the 2009 cars as 45th editions. The 2015 presumably will carry the 50th designation. It is a completely new car, with a lot of expectations. Technically it is the 51st production year, but it's a PR thing, and they tend to be flexible if it sells cars. And they have not said that there will be any such editions offered. At one time the rumor had 1000 special edition cars being released this spring and designated as 2014 ½ models.

They did tag the dash in the 1989 cars with a 25 plaque but no special attention other than that.

Didn't forget it, just didn't mention it. Just like I didn't mention the 2003 Centennial editions. Some of the anniversary editions were special option packages, like the 20th and 40th. The centennial edition was an option package only available in black. The 20th anniversary had major suspension upgrades, the first EFI 302 and the AOD. It also was only in white w/blue strip with GT-350 decals to emulate the first Shelbys.

One great thing about the Mustangs is that they can be anything from a basic daily driver to a tricked out show car. And Ford made the most of it, with numerous special models. To my knowledge, there are 28 variants of the Mustang.
