Highly correct and absolutely distinctive, this 1965 Ford Mustang
GT in its rare factory-correct colors, has all the right upgrades,
and keeps strong V8 power under the hood. So if you love true
standout classics, keep reading for all the best details.
The factory-correct code-F Arcadian Blue is always going to instantly attract an audience. But this one does it even better with a solid investment in a newer application that shines bright. The shade of the blue body paint looks like the product of mixing the dark blue on the striping and the white of the vinyl roof, so the full package feels exceptionally well coordinated. Plus, this has a hint of sinister sports car attitude in GT-specific pieces like the fog lights in the grille, GT gas cap, the triple stripe on the rocker panels, and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. So while it's hard to prove an original GT, this one doesn't miss the details. Overall fit and finish is very good, making it the kind of car you want to drive around and show off. The chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, the stylized steel wheel are complete, and all the little trim pieces are in place - right down to the proper GT badges on the fenders.
The two-tone blue interior continues this impressive color package. You can tell there has been an investment in all the essentials, like the seats, carpeting, door panels, dash, headliner, and center console. The result makes hopping in feel like stepping into a fresh blue ocean. As you slip behind the grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, you'll spot the full round gauge panel - another essential element of the '65 Mustang GT. As you gaze across the full dash, everything works as it should - from the heat/defrost sliders to the horn. But don't forget to spot one nice upgrade. The radio that looks correct with its bright knob-style appearance, but it's actually a modern AM/FM digital tuner with cassette player. So cruising with your favorite tunes is a lot easier.
This is a factory A-code car, which puts it in the heart of GT production. And under the hood is a correct 289 cubic-inch V8 topped with a four-barrel carburetor. Not only does the engine bay look like a great time warp with the correctly painted gold air cleaner, matching valve covers, and all the correct decals, but also there are plenty of signs that this could be original to the car. Even the three-speed automatic transmission is date coded to fit in an originality timeline. One turn of the key, and the dual exhaust let's people know it's the big dog V8 with its rumble. But more than just a high-performance pony, this loaded Mustang has some great anytime driving features like the power steering and power brakes with discs up front.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a first-year Mustang with a standout color combo and all the best of the GT package. And since all the right investments have already been made, this is the iconic coupe that won't disappoint. Don't miss out, call today!!!
