Vehicle Description

There's a hierarchy when it comes to 1965 Ford Mustangs, and for the performance lovers, the K-Code HiPo 289 is king. So finding an ultra-desirable fastback that has been preserved and restored to show-ready standard is absolutely awesome. This significant classic even comes with outstanding documentation.

Collectors know a K-code Mustang is in the one-percent rarity range of total pony car production from the first few years. So these high-performance coupes are always in high demand. That's why it's extra special to find a well-done one. The panels line up nicely, which adds to a proper presentation of the factory-correct Rangoon Red. There have been the correct investments in this coupe along the way to keep it both looking correct and well-respected. So for example, the paint was resprayed about 10 years ago, but it's condition would make some 2020 restorations jealous. The brightwork is complete and straight on everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers to the correct high-performance 289 badges. We particularly like how this one retains a classic-style, but it still knows how to announce its extra performance with the right period-correct features. There's a GT-style dual exhaust setup and the styled-steel wheels are Mustang icons. Plus, the double redline tires are nice performance pieces that also coordinate with the paint.

There's even more period-correct distinction when you open the door. It starts with the cool red and white combo. The trim tag tells us this is factory-correct, and the two colors are quite striking as they interweave throughout the interior. It's especially nice in the details, like the red seatbelts against the white upholstery. And just like the exterior, this all looks clean and complete. Vintage fans will love details, like the working courtesy lights, wood-like trim, and the AM radio that's there for display. Performance lovers will be instantly attracted to the center console with floor shifter, wood-rimmed chrome steering wheel, and the desirable Rally Pac tack and clock mounted on the steering column.

As much as you'll love the interior and exterior, it's the rare K-code HiPo 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood that will truly impress. After all, it's the motor that took home the trophies around the globe, and the presentation today has a great look, right down to the decals. While Ford didn't do numbers-matching criteria in 1965, this car has a known history, and the motor is believed to be original to the car. The V8 inhales deeply from the four-barrel carb, and it was even recently overhauled and tuned by Champion Carburetor to keep this HiPo pony running right. Even the undercarriage photos show you the comprehensive care and investments in this coupe. You see it everywhere from the correct red oxide underside paint to the fresh suspension components that give you confidence when driving this classic. And the H-pipe dual exhaust combines with the control of the four-speed manual transmission to make you the conductor of a high-power symphony while you enjoy this fastback to its fullest.

The sale come complete with the original window sticker, owner's manual, documenting photos, receipts, owner history info, and more. So to have such a stunning Mustang also be so rare is the kind of treat we all can't resist. Call today!!!
