For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Alpharetta, Georgia

Vehicle Description


As many of you may know the Ford Mustang production began in 1964 with early production cars being referred to as 1964 1/2 models even though they all got titled as 1965 year cars. This is one of those early production cars built on July 14, 1964 and is. a D-Code 289 4bbl car produced in Poppy Red with the black interior.  This particular car lived a very good life with only 2 owners prior to our purchase. Sold at Bob Ford in Dearborn, MI The original family owned it until 2015 when they sold it to another family in Michigan. The second owners treated this beauty to a professional restoration completed about 4 years ago.  I had the opportunity to buy it and had it transported to me in an Enclosed Trailer to our showroom here in Alpharetta, GA. It is a stunning example and is one that you can turn the key and drive and enjoy! It is what I would call local show car quality and will win its share of trophies at the local events if that is what you enjoy but best of all it really runs, drives and handles the road beautifully. I will do my best to provide enough images, a video walk around and start up and an honest description to help you decide if this is the Pony for you. I am also a transport broker and get you a great rate on Enclosed Transport anywhere in the country and I also welcome overseas buyers as well. Sit back and enjoy!!!

As mentioned this Poppy Red, 2 owner classic Pony received a very extensive, professional restoration that was completed about 4 years ago and only about 500 miles added since the restoration.  Paint and Body look fantastic and it was done in the correct, original Poppy Red color which has an orange/red tone to it.  Body panels are very straight overall and doors open and shut very nicely.  All of the chrome, trim, and badging on the exterior were replaced with new including bumpers, front grill, side mirrors, etc. If I had to pick anything I would say that the rocker panel trim was not put on as carefully as it could have been so it has some small indentations if you look closely. Otherwise, the overall paint quality is very nice and will gather a crowd at the local shows and cruise-ins. Glass all looks great, windows roll up and down nicely and all of the weather stripping  was also replaced at the time of restoration.  Be sure to watch the walk around video as well as look at all of the pics provided. 

I hope the next lucky owner enjoys this Pony with the top down as much as possible but also nice to know that it does have a brand new black convertible top as well. It is a power top that was also rebuilt at time of restoration and operates great and latches down nice and tight across the windshield. It also comes with a brand new boot cover for a clean look when the top is down. 

Complimenting the Poppy Red Exterior is a beautiful Black interior also fully restored. Xmat sound deadening was put down below the new carpeting. Door panels, dash pad and front seats were redone and new seat foam in the front seats as well. Rear seat might be original but looks close to new as well. Interior lighting was upgraded to LED and a fantastic Custom Autosound Stereo was added that fits right in the original radio slot and has bluetooth so you can pair you music and phone. Nice JBL speakers neatly mounted in the kick panels and in the original front grille area of the dash and a subwoofer in the trunk. All of the gauges, turn signals, horn etc are working. Center console looks great and an aftermarket unit sits on top of it to add some cup holders and storage. Nice set of Pony Mat finish off the interior. You will be proud to show off the inside of this Mustang at all fo the events!!

Professional restoration means that this Pony runs as good as it looks!! The original D-Code 289 4bbl was pulled and completely rebuilt as was the C-4 Cruise-O-Matic transmission.  This classic Mustang drives superb!!! Original Power steering was completely redone and the 2nd owner added Power front disc brakes so this car handles and stops as good or better than new.  All new brake and fuel lines and a new fuel tank was added.. All new suspension with Polyurethane bushings, new shocks, and 1"lowering springs done in front with air shocks and new leaf springs in the rear. New dual exhaust has a great tone.  The undercarriage was solid overall according to the 2nd owner but had some pinholes in the floorpans so they replaced the floorpans with original style pans and did a very nice job. The trunk was also nicely finished off with spare tire, jack,in bag etc. A new set of Styled Steel wheels wrapped in white wall radials really finish off the vintage look.  This Mustang is an absolute joy to drive and will turn heads everywhere you go. Be sure to watch the video to hear it start up and running as well. 

AsI mentioned this 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible comes with great original documentation including the original Window Sticker from Bob Ford in Dearborn, MI. I also have the original sales invoice, original title and registrations from the original owner through 2002. We also have the original owner manual. It is always nice to have such original documentation on your classic car investment!!
