With an awesome color combo, upgraded V8 power, and big investments everywhere, this 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible is the kind of classic that looks so good and feels so good, that it becomes a member of the family.
Not only is the factory-correct Honey Gold a memorable color on this pony car, but also it was only offered for one year. So this one instantly has rarity and distinction, and that's why they invested nicely during the restoration to get it looking so good. The bright shine is exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible. And the luster really highlights the iconic lines with well-defined creases where you can see the sporty overhang of the hood, short rear deck, and the crease that runs the full length with a classic kick-up behind the door. And the details on this one are terrific. Not only do you have freshly-dipped chrome bumpers, but there are subtle upgrades. It includes a GT-style dual exhaust stylishly coming out of the rear valance, and the wheels are Mag 500-style units with detailed pony center caps.
The new black folding roof is an attractive contrast against the Honey Gold. And with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a terrific interior. The black continues inside, and the exterior paint also returns to accent the doors, dash, steering column, and center console. It makes for a stylishly intertwined color package inside and out that always looks awesome on a droptop. It has a fresh and premium feeling everywhere, including the desirable "pony" package on the seats. You get all the best classic elements, including the center console with the floor shifter. Plus, they added subtle upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, a wood-rimmed steering wheel to match the trim, and provisions for R134a air conditioning.
The 289 cubic-inch V8 has a fresh and clean presentation that signals a solid investment in the powerhouse. And when you see that this one not only has the right shiny pieces, but also fresh components like the belts, wires, and hoses, then you realize that they invested in both the looks and the fundamentals. The V8 has been enhanced with performance upgrades including Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, and ceramic coated headers feeding the stainless dual exhaust. Plus, you have all the right supporting component, from a bracer bar to a Champion aluminum radiator with electric fan. The three-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and feeds a stout Ford 9-inch. And power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich T/As mean this one has the right features to enjoy the drive.
Complete with owner's manual and restoration photos, this is the distinct and rare iconic classic Mustang done the right way.
