Cool original colors, an A/C interior, and a major upgrade to a 351
V8... this 1965 Ford Mustang convertible is classic that stands out
in all the best ways.
A red first-year droptop Mustang is always a desirable classic, but you can instantly see this one is a bit brighter than most others. While many are finished in a Candyapple Red, this one is finished in its factor-correct code-3 Poppy Red. This rarer color has been treated to a professional respray that takes advantage of modern clearcoat. So you get a nice deep gloss - exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible. Shiny chrome bumpers, correct bright trim, and 14-inch Mag wheels make for the right vivid companions. Plus, the white convertible top gives this standout a premium finish.
And if you like the way this looks with the top up, you'll love it with the roof off even more. With the flip of a switch the power folding roof reveals a factory-correct white interior. Just like the folding top, the white inside is bright enough to give this one a premium presentation - and that's before you check out all the features. You have the ultra-desirable center console in-between the sporty bucket seats. Plus, the air conditioning is running modern R134a. So you can stay as cool as you look behind the wheel of this classic droptop pony car.
By now, you might have picked up on the special fender badges. It would be many more years before the Mustang got the large 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8, but this '65 has it! It looks right at home in the engine bay with its big blue block, shining valve covers, and matching air topper. The large V8 inhales deeply through a Carter AFB completion four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority from long tube headers that add power as they feed the rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, with a thick sway bar up front, power steering, and a three-speed automatic transmission, this enhanced Mustang is also a fantastic cruiser.
The color combo will draw people near, which is just in time for them to hear the extra growl of the larger V8 - that's what makes this droptop Mustang an irresistible package. Don't miss out, call today!
