For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is thrilled to offer this stunning red with white stripes, 1965 Mustang Fastback 2+2! The 1965 Mustang set an all-time record for first-year sales of any new model. Today's auto market is too fragmented with different types of cars for a single model to ever get the wildly enthusiastic reception of the first Ford Mustang in America. Americans had few foreign models from which to choose in the 1960s, so domestic autos ruled the market. Lee Iacocca, then the young, savvy head of Ford Motor's Ford division, felt a sporty, inexpensive model would be hot because it would be youth-oriented and World War II baby boomers were getting their first driver's licenses. Also, the 15-29 age group was expected to grow by almost 40 percent between 1960 and 1970. The 1965 Mustang hardtop coupe drew 501,965 buyers, the convertible 101,945 and the fastback coupe 77,079. Iacocca even told Carroll Shelby to build an affordable, modified, limited-production 1965 Mustang that could beat no less than Chevy Corvettes on race tracks. Shelby did just that, using the semi-fastback body. Our stunning red with white stripes fastback looks a lot like the racing version produced by Carroll Shelby. With a powerful 302 V-8 engine lurking under the hood, backed by a quick shifting manual 5 speed transmission and racing seatbelts to hold you in securely, this awesome mustang fastback is sure to be a red blur on the highway! So, if you're looking to stand out in a crowd of mundane musclecars, call your friends today at Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City to make this handsome iconic Ford yours.
