1964.5 Mustang oddities?
I recently acquired a unique 1964.5 Mustang that has a couple of things about it that I'm hoping a fellow VMF'r can help shed some light on. This particular car has 25,986 original miles. Original 'Paint OK' stamp, original sheet metal, exterior paint and interior, window sticker, purchase docs, letter from original owner...etc. Well documented originality. Here's where it gets odd:
The car is a factory D-Code 289 4v / 4spd car, but has no 289 fender emblems. No trace of holes, or ever having had holes. And again, they are the original fenders and original paint. Has anyone else seen this on their 1964.5 Mustang?
The other oddity is, there is no trace of it ever having had a window washer bag, window squirters, lines or pump. The original apron is in place but has no holes for the bag hanger. The holes through the cowl are there, but the paint looks undamaged, as in, it looks like there has never been a fastener through the mounting hole.
The car has a build date of July 14 and was delivered to Russ Davis Ford in Covina, Ca. Sold on July 28.
Any insight, help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Ongoing rotation of Mustangs to hold me over until this car is done.
