When the 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang debuted, buyers could choose from three body styles -- a hardtop, a fastback and a rag-top convertible.

It was already known that the 2015 Mustang will arrive as a fastback, but Ford today said that a drop-top version is also in the works.

Pictures of the convertible sport a shiny "5.0" badge on the side and chrome "GT" badge on the back.

It is assumed but not yet confirmed that all the standard engines -- the 5.0-liter V8, 3.7-liter V6 and that new 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo-four -- will be offered.

Expect to see the six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions on vehicle configurators as well.

Ford says the convertible Mustang will be available in late 2014.
