This 1965 Ford Mustang gets it right exactly where it counts. You
have enhanced V8 power, the control of four-on-the-floor, and
plenty of sporty detail upgrades. It makes the right way to deliver
the upgraded performance attitude.
The upgrade to red paint from green was done later in life to give
this Mustang both a timeless and bold look to get noticed. It has
been done with care to have the kind of gloss that really pops in
the sunshine. It gets its fundamentals right, too, including good
gaps, clean glass, nice lines, and the doors that line up well.
Brightwork is also clean, complete, and shining. It all makes for a
driver-quality and driver-ready car that you can show off with
pride. And those 15-inch Cragar Eliminator 500 wheels fit in with
the classic style and shine. Plus, these icons of speed even have
an extra meaty rear set to give you the ideal sporty stance.
Black always looks good against red, so this one has an attractive
style. It's also nicely detailed with the carpet, headliner, and
dash all having a new-like appearance. And you'll even appreciate
the little details, like how the bright under-dash lights still
greet you when the door opens. And this one has the right feeling
you want in a driver's classic. There are factory features like the
low-back front bucket seats and thin/grippy three-spoke steering
wheel. They are joined by upgrades like the auxiliary readouts and
a Hurst floor shifter.
Under the hood is Ford's 289 cubic inch motor. It has a sporty
style with the black Ford Racing valve covers and air grabber. And
the red lettering goes great with the bright plug wires. It has the
look of power, and so this V8 backs it up with upgrades like a
Holley four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, and long tube
headers feeding the dual exhaust and Super Turbo mufflers. You'll
also notice good supporting components like the aluminum radiator,
MSD coil, and bracer bar across the engine bay. You have full
control over the enhanced V8 thanks to the four-speed manual
transmission. And as you look underneath, you'll see nice details
like power front disc brakes. Plus, the traction bars and wider
rear tires know how to get the power to the pavement.
This is the bright and powerful pony car that makes for a fun V8
cruiser. So if you love driving your icons, call now!
