This 1965 Ford Mustang K-Code is in Tropical Turquoise with White.
“…those who will settle for nothing less than top performance…” - FOMOCO
The K-Code Mustang was a special-edition Mustang made between 1965 and 1967 that came from the factory with a special 289 high-performance cubic-inch engine beneath its hood.
K-Code cars featured a special badge on the front fenders that recognized their higher output V8 engine and performance characteristics. Air conditioning and power steering were not available, and the car was only offered with a 4-speed manual in 1965. The “K” represents the engine code found on the VIN number of these cars.
Buyers of the GT Equipment Package on their Mustangs could add the K-code option to their new ride for an extra $276 back in 1965.

Ford is bringing back its heralded Mustang Mach I, and plans to do so this spring, which apparently means between now and the first day of summer, which this year is June 20. Note: This is the Mustang Mach I, not the Mach E, so it’s a high-performance sports coupe, not a utility vehicle, and […]
You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
“This is how we World Premier during quarantine!” Ken Block says. “Three guys locked down in different parts of the country, using video chat to give you the FIRST LOOK at what might be the very next ‘Hoonicorn’ project! “Check it out as I chat with Ash Thorp (Hollywood graphic artist and designer of the […]
Sometimes collector cars are bought simply because of their rarity and value. But sometimes they are bought because of their story. For example, Jay Leno says he doesn’t buy cars, he buys stories. The Pick of the Day is a car with a story. The car is a 1978 Ford Mustang II, certainly not widely […]
With a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT leading the way and selling for £63,250 ($79,320), England’s H&H Classics reports that its April 29 online auction posted £600,000 ($752,500) in revenue with a 70 percent sell-through rate. “The sale attracted some 387 online bidders with log-ins from as far afield as California and New Zealand,” the […]
Maybe we need the police to investigate this one because the Pick of the Day is an intriguing offer but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com doesn’t answer all of our questions. The car is an unusually all-black 1989 Ford Mustang with dog-dish hubcaps and what appears to be a lowered stance. That would make sense since […]
Gale Halderman, the original designer of the Ford Mustang, died April 29 near Dayton, Ohio. Halderman has suffered from liver cancer, according to his family. He was 87. His iconic Mustang design sold more than 8 million units, inspired 6 model generations of design and has been continuously built for more than 50 years. Jimmy […]
On the 56th anniversary of its launch, Ford announced a pair of global honors for its Mustang: world’s best-selling sports car for all of 2019 as well as its fifth consecutive year as best-selling sports coupe. Since sixth-generation Ford Mustang global exports began in 2015 through December 2019, Ford has sold 633,000 coupes and convertibles […]
To celebrate the sale of the first million Mustangs, Ford did a special Sprint package in the spring of 1966. The package provided upgraded equipment for Mustangs with 6-cylinder engines, and proved successful enough that for 1968, a Sprint “Package B” option was available with a V8 engine. The Pick of the Day is a […]
If you bought a Ford Mustang Mach 1 back in 1969, you spent around $3,125 for a souped-up pony car powered by a 351cid carbureted V8 engine that pumped out 250 horsepower. Or for another $26, you could opt for a four-barrel intake rated at 290. Or, for $357, you could equip your Mach 1 […]
