This 1965 Ford Mustang GT hardtop was restored in 1997, it was stripped down to its frame and sandblasted. The body was repainted in its original Rangoon Red paint and features "FORD" lettering on the hood, a black vinyl top, black interior, and dual exhaust finishers that exit the car below the rear bumper.
The rebuilt A-code 289ci V8 has rebuilt heads and is paired with the original 4-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes an aftermarket stereo, a 5-gauge instrument cluster, and a floor-mounted manual shifter. Configured with the GT Equipment Group, this Mustang has GT emblems, lower-body stripes, and grille-mounted foglights.
This Mustang is equipped with original-style wheels and 2-year-old Hancook whitewall tires. The body has a few minor nicks and scratches on it, with the original windshield and chrome trim.
The cabin is furnished with black carpeting, black front bucket seats with lap belts, and a black rear bench seat. Equipment includes a 3-spoke steering wheel, manual windows, an aftermarket radio, and a floor-mounted 4-speed manual shifter. Another element of the GT Equipment Group is a 5-gauge instrument cluster, which is shown in the photo gallery. That contains a 140-mph speedometer and readouts for the fuel level, oil pressure, amperage, and engine temperature.
This Mustang has an A-code engine, meaning it is equipped with a 289ci V8 with a 4-Barrel carburetor. The engine was rebuilt when the Mustang was restored. Since then, the engine has accrued approximately 25,000 miles. The carburetor was rebuilt last year and the motor has rebuilt heads that enable the engine to accept unleaded fuel without the need for additives. The engine is connected to the original 4-speed manual transmission that was equipped with a new clutch in 1997.
Last year, this Mustang received a new 2-cylinder brake system that replaced its 1-cylinder front and rear brake hardware.
The car comes with a protective bra for the front grille, a set of mag wheels with whitewall tires, and its original AM radio.
