The Ford Mustang officially went on sale 50 years ago, but a 22-year-old Chicago woman was actually sold one two days early when she went shopping at a local dealership.

So, Gail Brown ended up being the first owner of a classic Mustang convertible.

Fifty years later, she's Gail Wise, married to her high school sweetheart Tom since 1966. And she still has the car and remembers the day she drove it off of the lot.

"Everybody was staring at me and waving and asking me to slow down and give high fives they were so excited to see the car," said Wise.

The skylight blue Mustang sold in 1964 for about $3,400.
