This 1965 Ford Mustang has a golden glow and fastback distinction
from the first impression. And as you dig into the details, like
the upgraded V8 power and full upgraded suspension, you see this is
an icon that's made to be enjoyed.
We all love the first-year Mustangs because they launched the icon,
but not all of them are created equal. After all, the 2+2 fastback
is arguably the one that's in the most demand, and this one has a
golden glow that holds close to Champagne Beige. The full execution
of the paint and body looks good, but it will never be anything
that will make you too nervous to drive this one. And that's a good
thing. It has a road-ready GT kind of style with the trumpeted dual
exhaust coming out of the rear panel. And the styled steel wheels
have a golden finish to harmonize with the paint.
The interior has a distinct and factory-correct Ivy Gold and
parchment two-tone. Not only are these cool colors, but also you
have the right vintage pieces, like the fold-down rear seats and
floor shifter for the three-speed automatic. While this has a full
classic look, keen eyes will also spot some very worthwhile
upgrades. For example, there's modern Dynamat insulation underneath
the carpeting. And the radio is a retro-style unit that has an
AM/FM digital tuner. The wood-rimmed steering wheel is mounted on
an Ididit tilt column, and that gives you a clear view to the
GT-style round gauge package.
We have plenty of receipts documenting over $25k invested in this
coupe over the last few decades, and the engine bay has been a big
benefit of this. The 289 cubic-inch V8 was rebuilt in 2002. It's
now upgraded with features a Holley four-barrel carburetor, HEI
distributor w/Taylor Pro wires, and a serpentine belt system. It
fires up nicely, and makes a sweet tune out of the newer dual
exhaust. And don't just listen to those pipes; follow them in the
undercarriage photos. There's where you'll spot a clean look of
even more investment. This includes a Heidts tubular A-arm front
end, tubular frame bracing, and a Heidts four-link rear with
adjustable coilovers and heavy duty sway bar. You'll spot even more
nice upgrades, like a Ford 9-inch rear that was rebuilt in 2014,
power front disc brakes, modern BF Goodrich Comp T/A tires, and
rack & pinion power steering.
The sale comes complete with not only the build receipts, but also
maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is the sporty
fastback pony car with the right investments to feel even sportier
on the streets. So don't miss your chance on this great driving
icon. Call today!!!
