For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1965 Ford Mustang Fastback

The Mustang was originally available as either a hardtop or convertible, but during the car's early design phases a fastback model was strongly considered. In 1965, a newly introduced fastback body version with its swept-back rear glass and distinctive ventilation louvers became available.

Imagine having the coolest new car on the block in 1965, the Ford Mustang. Then ramp that up and imagine the coolest version of said wildly popular Mustang, that being the Fastback version. Couple that with a 289ci V8 and strap a 4-barrel carburetor on and now you are living large. One of the most desirable built versions of this ultimate cool, we give you this fastback to grace your driveway and also give you the ability to turn the key then drive away. Who wouldn't want this restored version of one of the most popular cars ever built.

Exterior
From the galloping pony on the front honeycomb grille, to the fog lights which frame the nose vents that sit beside the single headlight, all the way back to the sloping rear roof line with the iconic louvers this beautiful pony car possesses little faults. It's all about awe with the respray in Springtime Yellow, which presents with some inclusions and evidence of body work in the lower panels, restored chrome and brite-work, and 14" chrome styled steel wheels wrapped in Hankook rubber. Then for giggles, let's throw in a tasteful black tri bar racing stripe right above the rocker. Bringing up the rear is a galloping pony emblazoned gas filler cap, chrome encircled through holes for chrome tipped exhaust, and chrome reverse light bezels. It just does not get any better than this.

Interior
Hold that last thought...because throw open the doors and reveal a pristine black colored vinyl interior seating setup of 2 bomber style buckets. In back a large fold down flat carpeted hinged floor can be magically transformed into a rear 2 plus 2 black covered vinyl bucket/bench. This is grounded by fade free black carpet and a simple long stem chrome gear shift lever mounted in the black and silver center console between the buckets up front. Looking at the dash, we see a wonderful amalgamation of padded vinyl topper and black colored painted lower all fronted by a standard black plastic 3 spoke steering wheel. A standard black face gauge cluster is within a black crinkle finish camera case bezel and mounted atop the column is a 2 gauge rally pack which includes the tachometer and clock. In the center of the dash, we see a retro style AM/FM/Cassette stereo and just below is the controller and outlets for the dealer installed AC.

Drivetrain
A pop of the hood and you'll be transported back in time as you gaze upon the fully restored black engine bay. A proper 289ci V8 resides between the fenders painted in black. A gold air cleaner assembly and chrome valve covers dress up the well restored bay nicely. This mill is fed the proper mix of air and fossils from a rebuilt 4bbl carburetor. Attached is a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission which sends power back to Ford 8" conventional axle with 3.00 gearing.

Undercarriage
A nice view underneath with a mix of black paint, patina, factory undercoating and surface rust. The unibody rails and rockers are rust free and the flooring show signs of replacement, while some smaller areas of rust are noted. Good suspension, which includes independent coil springs for the front, and leaf springs are on for the back. Manual drum brakes are on all 4 corners and we see a stock style dual exhaust system snaking its was rearward. All buttoned up and looking just dandy.

Drive-Ability
Slipping inside I gazed at the new instruments, cranked up the radio, and I was off to the test track. Here I could feel the 289ci pulling me forward while being pushed backwards into my seat. Smooth shifting, good handling and bias free braking from the drums were noted. The tachometer and clock weren't working during my drive but all else was perfect.

Flashback to 1965, suburbia in the driveway, hottest car to come along in years, and it's in your neighbor's driveway. Fast forward we are in the new millennium, same car in your driveway, and the car looks and performs just as good as it did when it left the showroom. Come on down, where we only have the coolest of the cool hanging around!
