For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

There are very few things that make Mustang lovers more excited than seeing a first-year K-code convertible. And this ultra-rare drop-top has its numbers-matching HiPo 289! But that's just the beginning of this 1965 Ford Mustang GT convertible's appeal. It has been restored to have a beautiful color combo inside and out. Plus, it's an awesome driver's car with an upgraded five-speed and a supercharger...yes, you read that right. SUPERCHARGER!

This car is quite a rare opportunity. The K-codes were expensive and rare, and when you add that to the convertible setup, you are looking at a Holy Grail kind of car. That's why they invested correctly in a restoration. The Rangoon Red makes for a cherry red icon with some added luster from an upgrade later in life. Bodywork is excellent with straight panels and good alignment throughout, which means you can shut the doors with confidence. The brightwork is complete and straight on everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers to the special High Performance 289 fender badges. As a true K-code Mustang, it's already most likely a real GT. And this one has all the correct indicators, right down to the exhaust hanger mounts. So it shows off the best features with the fog lights in the grille, triple rocker stripe, proper GT badging, and the trumpeted dual exhaust mounted through the rear valance. And everything from the styled steel wheels to the well-fitting convertible top makes for an award-worthy icon.

The interior is a beautiful red and parchment two-tone presentation. There's extra care in the restoration to give you a smooth dash pad, deluxe door panels, and the desirable "Pony" pattern upholstery. You have the best in vintage premium features like a power convertible top, a center console, and an AM/FM radio. There are terrific details, like the color-matched convertible booth, classic floor mats, the correct trunk mat, and the courtesy lights that greet you when the doors open. But what you'll love the best is the driver-ready style. You have front bucket seats, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and Rally-Pac with clock and tach.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 289 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. Ford was known to stamp the VIN on these K-code motors to help identify the special blocks that were approved for HiPo duty. And while this has a significant history, we bet that you're also interested in the obvious upgrade to a Paxton supercharger. We like this setup. Not only does this give you some serious added power, but also there is a bit of history here. Ford had a few ultra-hot first-gen T-birds with Paxton Superchargers. And Carroll Shelby would also flirt with upgrading the 289 with a Paxton on some later GT350s. And the engine bay likes to keep a full classic style with this upgrade by having a vintage-style presentation to the intake, battery topper, hoses, decals, and more. So the presentation looks like it's answering the question of "What if Ford asked Paxton to upgrade the Mustang?" Because you have an extra-power pony this one was also upgraded to a five-speed manual transmission to give you an extra gear and better ratios to enjoy it all to the fullest. The clean undercarriage reminds you this is a car you can drive with confidence. And while this true sports car wants you to feel the road, you also have the right driver features, like front disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records This is an ultra-rare Mustang that gives you the best classic features while keenly giving you awesome driver upgrades. So if you want an all-around stunner, call today!
