For Sale at Auction: 1965 Ford Mustang in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

This custom 1965 Ford Mustang fastback known as "Mustang Magic" was originally built by Eddie Paul in the late '70s. In 2007 it once again made its way back to Paul for a much-needed multi-year refresh. Painted bright red and equipped with a custom interior, this custom consists of all-metal fabrication except for the Shelby-style fiberglass hood. During the build, Paul widened the body by 12-inches, fabricated the front flares using original Mustang fenders and widened them with an air chisel. He also blended the front flares into a Trans Am-style front air dam, hand-forming it from 22-gauge sheet metal and widened the rear by welding new Mustang quarters on top of the old ones, then shaped it with a hammer and dolly. The car has a total of 11 Can-Am-style scoop openings. Power to motivate this custom comes from a 289ci V8 engine backed by an automatic transmission. Built at the Edelbrock factory in California, the engine comes equipped with a Carter Super Quad 625 cfm carburetor and a Crane Blazer 228-2H camshaft with 276hp at 6,000 RPM with 242 ft/lbs of torque. The stock 2.80 gears were replaced with Perfection American Zoom 4.11 gears for the drag strip. The interior features Deist safety belts, a Vilem B. Haan 14-inch leather-covered steering wheel, AutoMeter gauges and reclining RECARO LS seats with re-created hand-woven jet-style fabric. As a bonus, Paul also signed the car between the gas filler and right taillight before applying a clear coat during his final restoration. ** PREVIEW
