Description
 
The car market is changing rapidly, and perhaps the most surprising thing is that formerly common, affordable cars are now hot collectors items and Mustangs like this 1965 coupe are all former bargain-basement dwellers that are no longer second-class citizens, theyre automotive superstars. Someone has obviously invested big money in this sleek, black hardtop and it includes all the features youd want from your favorite pony car. Its hard to make black look this good without a lot of time and a lot of money, and thats obviously what happened here. Taking one straight, original car, it was refinished using a lot of hand labor to block the sheetmetal until it was straight enough to calibrate NASAs instruments, then shot with a few coats of the best black urethane you can buy. The gaps are so even and tight that they virtually disappear against the black body, and aside from the vivid red pinstripes (a theme used throughout the car) it is almost devoid of ornamentation so it looks quite sinister. No modifications aside from deleting the badges mean that it has a classic look, and with GT fog lamps up front, its a bit aggressive, too. Nice chrome bumper sparkle against the dark finish, along with the stainless window surrounds that appear to be in good original condition. If you want attention, driving this car will do it. Youll find black buckets inside, which were standard equipment on all Mustangs. The seat covers, carpets, and headliner are new and an aftermarket center console was added along the way. Its nice to see they went with the standard seats, which have a sporty, understated look that often gets overshadowed by the showy Pony interior, but it works just fine in this coupe. Aftermarket A/C was added, and while it has a look thats similar to the original under-dash unit, its more effective with secondary vents in the outboard positions. A woodgrained steering wheel frames the stock gauges, and again, youll find a red pinstripe that adds just a splash of color to liven things up. An AM/FM radio looks quite correct up high in the dash and the trunk is detailed with a recent reproduction mat. No early Mustang is complete without a 289 under the hood, and the snarky small block that powers this pony has a few upgrades that make it a blast on the street. Edelbrock dress-up parts and a 4-barrel carburetor give it period-perfect looks, while an MSD ignition system ensures that the fuel is fully burned. The A/C systems installation is ultra-clean and theres plenty of evidence of recent maintenance. The engine is painted correct early-1965 black and starts with a great small block bark from the twin Flowmaster mufflers; theres nothing else that sounds like it. A C4 3-speed automatic is hardly a demerit thanks to quick reflexes and relaxed cruising capabilities and youre certainly not going to hurt the rear end by having a little fun on the street. You can see that its led an easy life someplace away from snow and salt just by looking underneath, which is always a relief when youre talking unibody Mustangs. Styled steel wheels look great and have also been treated to a red pinstripe to tie the entire car together quite nicely, and they wear 205/70/14 BFG radials all around. You can probably count on Mustangs of this caliber getting more expensive in the future, but right now, you can have this one for less than the cost of resurrecting a project car. Call today!
