The perfect Mustang fastback to drive and enjoy!
The 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Vintage Burgundy metallic over a black interior. This particular example was completed at the San Jose, California, factory on January 20th, 1965 and was dispatched soon after to Los Angeles, California. It is believed that this Mustang Fastback spent the entire early portion of its life in California before coming to the dry state of Nevada in the early 2000’s and just recently was released from a small private collection in Texas. Today, this Mustang presents wonderfully, having previously been subject to a thorough restoration. The date code correct 289ci V8 engine is still in place and has been upgraded to A-code specifications with a four barrel carburetor and intake. With stunning factory colors, upgraded performance and long-time California ownership provenance, this Mustang Fastback will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its next caretaker.

There was a new twist in the Ford vs. Chevy rivalry when it came to cars being searched during the month June on the ClassicCars.com marketplace. That twist was a Ford vs. Ford rivalry in which all-years Mustangs overtook all-years Ford in one of the two search lists. Oh, by the way, that all-years search […]
Dream Giveaway Garage and CJ Pony Parts are offering a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet as a grand prize in support of veterans’ and kids’ charities. It’s an opportunity to win a very rare, low-mileage classic. But there are only six more days to enter. The Pony Car Wars in the United States had […]
I was never a Fox Body Mustang fan, per se. It certainly was a big improvement on the Mustang II, but it never made me want to own one. I would however discover in auto crossing that these cars were far nimbler in the F-Street Class than my Pontiac Firebird. Being here at the ClassicCars.com […]
In the course of three weeks, I drove three performance cars: the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 455 horsepower from a 6.2-liter small block with direct injection; the Dodge Charger Scat Pack with 485 horsepower from a normally aspirated 392 Hemi; and the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium with 332 horsepower from a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC […]
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 […]
