For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Ford Mustang combines a cool/coordinating color combo, a touch of the right upgrades, and some very vintage details to make this feel like a proper classic with true cruiser appeal.

Rangoon Red is a great look on these Mustang coupes. It's a 1965-correct color that was part of an upgrade later in life. That means this coupe keeps its history while also having a nice gloss in the sunshine. Not only is the body attractive, but also so are the details. This has bright bumpers/trim, clean glass, pliable weather-stripping, and doors that close with confidence. The premium vinyl top has a quality fit, and bright white against the radiating red has the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. There is also an updated set of alloys that look like the Mustang's styled steel wheels (the factory wheel and hubcaps also come with the sale.) The full impression strikes a balance of an attractive package that you can drive with pride.

The full red interior makes for a harmonized package in and out. It's quite a bold setup that looks especially vibrant on the fundamentals like door panels, upholstery, and dash. And the headliner is white just to keep a cool sense of continuity. It's an impressively detailed setup, right down to the lights that greet you when the door opens. Your overall impression of this car inside and out is one that was made to be an easy cruiser. So you have nice extras here, like the armrest center console with cup holders, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and Mustang floor mats in black to hide any dirty shoes of those hopping in for a joyride. This is a solid driving setup with front bucket seats, a grippy classic steering wheel, and clean gauges. And have you counted the gears on the shifter yet?

Under the hood is the unmistakable long block of Ford's 200 cubic-inch inline six. The bright red motor, overall tidy look, and good look of the wires, hoses, belts, and other fundamentals all show that there has been proper care and recent investments. So it makes for a strong motor that fires readily and drives great. Sure, we all know there are some nice V8s that fit under there, but there's something extra cool about having the correct displacement powerhouse in this T-code coupe. But because this was made to be a cruiser, they upgraded this to a five-speed manual transmission. So you get the original motor, but better ratios to fully utilize the powerband.

This Mustang appreciates its history while making the right investments to be a solid cruiser for today. That's why it's irresistible. Call today!!!
