STK 2811 1965 Ford Mustang GT Tribute
The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile
known as the 'pony car'. The Mustang's styling, with its long hood
and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of
competition. The first generation Mustang was manufactured from
1964 until 1973. This handsome 1965 Mustang GT 'clone' has had a
careful restoration (2016) with significant mechanical upgrades.
The solid body was professionally reshot in Wilmington White with
Blue accent stripes. New exterior components include bumpers,
taillights and mirrors. Chrome and stainless trim are excellent and
period-correct American Torque Thrust 'D' alloy wheels mount 14"
BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The interior was fully restored using
'Pony' theme upholstery - seats, carpeting, door panels, tinted
windows and dash are all excellent. New weather-stripping was
installed along with new window cranks, handles and knobs. This
Mustang was a factory 'T' code car (200ci six), but horsepower is
now provided by a built 302ci 'Windsor'. The block was bored .030
over and the intake is a single-plane Edelbrock Performer fitted
with a tuned Autolite 4-barrel carb. Other engine upgrades include
new distributor, fuel system components, Champion aluminum radiator
and Mustang dress-up kit. Tri-Y tube headers are tied to a new
custom dual exhaust system with GT 'trumpet' outlets. The 302 runs
beautifully and sounds great. Power to the ground is delivered via
a 4-speed manual gearbox w/Hurst Comp+ shifter. The solid chassis
is equipped with power steering, power disc/drum brakes w/dual
master cylinder, shock tower brace, Drake 'Monte Carlo' brace, new
control arms/tie rods and new front sway bar. If you want a fun,
classic Blue Oval, this sharp Mustang coupe has your name on it.
