This 1965 Ford Mustang 2+2 takes all that you love about the
first-year fastback and upgrades it with the best features like an
A/C interior, five-speed, and a powerful stroker V8 with less than
300 miles on it. And all this pony car desirability is wrapped in
an awesome red-on-red sleek style.
Crisp lines, great detailing, and sporty sheet metal make this one
timeless. Rangoon Red is always a great choice on a Mustang for
highlighting the fastback's dramatic long hood/short deck design.
Plus, these always had the best profiles with the race-ready rear
window slats. It's an overall package that was done with care where
you have great body panels, good gaps, and a high-gloss
presentation. Everything from the bumpers to the styled steel
wheels has a bright style. So it's already an impressive-looking
pony car even before you release the hood pins and show off what's
The full red interior creates one of the coolest coordinating
packages with the exterior, and the trim tag tells us this full red
style is factory correct. The level of quality tells you there was
a solid investment here during restoration, and there were even
nice extras that are well-integrated. The upgraded premium "Pony"
package bucket seats now have headrests. The radio is a retro-style
radio that has a modern AM/FM digital tuner with iPod input. The
classic-style air conditioning unit blows cold with modern R134a
refrigerant. And it's a true driver's car with a Moto-Lita sports
steering wheel, a full set of auxiliary readouts, and a
classic-style Rally Pac clock and tach.
The engine bay is where this pony car proves it's a true beast.
While it was born a fine C-code coupe, this one now is powered by a
347 cubic-inch stroker V8 built by the Masters at BluePrint
engines. This powerhouse is rated at 419 horsepower and 445 ft-lb
of torque right out of the box - and we have the dyno sheet to
prove it! If the motor looks exceptionally fresh, it's because it
is. This was only installed about 300 miles ago, and it's still
running its break-in oil. The upgrade to a five-speed manual
transmission means you get to take full advantage of the upgraded
powerhouse. There are valuable additions everywhere to make this a
solid road machine, like the aluminum radiator, upgraded shock
tower bracing, and newer bushings. Plus, power steering, power
brakes, and front discs make for a good anytime driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, title
documentation, and the dyno sheet. This is a rare and speedy red
fastback that has the enhanced V8 to back up its appearance. A
turn-key package like this will always be in short supply and high
demand, so you better hurry if you want to make it yours. Call
