For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The 1964.5 Ford Mustang convertible is one of those true rarities that's always in demand. So it's great to find one with a true classic attitude, distinctive V8 power, and a tantalizingly low serial number.

Ford had a huge hit on its hands with the first-generation Mustang. It was an instant icon, and so when looking for the ultimate classic, you want the earliest example you can get. That's what makes this one so appealing. You'll see the trim tag in the pictures that show an April 1964 production date and a serial number that's one of the lowest you're going to find for a while. Plus, with only around 28,830 convertibles produced during the short 1964.5 run, it's one of the rarest versions of the first-gen Mustang. It's presented in a color that stays close to the Phoenician Yellow that Ford offered in 1964, and so it's distinctive while also vintage. This has a bright style in the sunshine, because after all, a convertible belongs out on every sunny Sunday. The chrome looks bright, the trim is complete, and the black roof looks attractive against the yellow. So it makes for the right balance of an attractive vintage style on a car that's also not afraid to hit the road. And as you look at the full package you'll see this is a convertible that's meant to cruise.

With just a flip of a switch, the black top folds back to reveal a full black interior. So it offers a well-coordinated color combo with the roof up or down. The seats, door panels, carpeting, and other fundamentals retain a stock presentation, and if original, it all looks quite impressive for the age. And part of this extraordinary stock style is also in the details, like the matching convertible boot, the AM radio there for display, and the working courtesy lights. And with the classic grippy steering wheel, clear gages, and desirable center console, this is a classic drop-top that's right for cruising.

When you open the hood, the bold blue on the large air grabber and valve covers grab your attention. But it's what's beneath them that's really special. This is an F-code Mustang, which means it came from the factory with a 260 cubic-inch V8. Once the 1964.5 production switched over to 1965, this option was gone. So it's a cool piece of original history to correctly have under the hood. That's why they have maintained it to be a strong runner, and there are even newer pieces like the water pump and thermostat housing. You'll want to show off this cool collectible everywhere, and so there are easy driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.

This is a cool drop-top where the production history ensures it will remain rare forever. So if you love a true classic that's part of an exclusive club, you need this early Mustang convertible. Call today!!!
