The 1965 Mustangs - A Highly Anticipated SequelAs is typical with car release dates, the 65 Mustangs were introduced in September of the previous year. What was not so typical was the fact that Ford had just released a 1965 Mustang version six months prior, in April of the same year. Thus, the earlier pace car version is still known as the 64 1/2, whereas the 1965 Ford Mustang version is known as the late model '65 Mustang. It can get a bit confusing, but hopefully we've clarified it for you.Ford had rushed to get the 64 1/2 prototype out to the general public, with the announcement that the Mustang would be the Indianapolis pace car of 1964. In an effort to keep cost down and speed up production, Ford borrowed a few parts from their earlier models, namely the Ford Falcon. 1966 was the last year that Ford used these parts and in 1967 the Mustang was revised and made more uniquely its own.It seems apparent that Ford's marketing plan was highly successful. After giving away 195 1964.5 hardtop Mustangs, Ford then sold 1965 hardtop Mustangs at a 5 to 1 ratio over convertibles and fastback versions. Today, this makes good news for 1965 fastback owners as it is a rarer find. The fastback may not have sold as well in 1965, but it provided a basis for the future Mustang Shelby GT350 which was housed in fastback Mustangs. The 65 fastback was referred to as the "2x2 fastback" because although it was intended as a two-person car it had room for two more in the fold down rear seat.Introduced April 17th, 1964 at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York, the 1965 Mustang was first available as either a coupe or convertible. The fastback became available in September of 1964.All Mustangs built between March of 1964 and August 17th, 1964 are considered "early 1965" model Mustangs (a.k.a.: "sixty-four and a half"). The 260 cubic inch V-8, engine (engine code "F") was standard equipment on early '65 models, with an optional 289 cubic inch V-8 available (engine code "D"). Also available in early '65 models was a 170 cubic inch, six-cylinder engine (engine code "U"), and in June of 1964, the 289 cubic inch "Hi-Po" engine (engine code "K") became available. A three speed manual transmission was standard equipment, and four speed manual transmission and three speed automatic (the "C4") were options.Mustangs built after August 17th 1964 are "late 65" models. Engine options for late 65's were improved to include a standard 289 cubic inch engine with a 2-barrel carburetor (engine code "C") replacing the 260 cubic inch engine, with an optional 289 cubic inch engine and a 4-barrel carburetor (engine code "A") available. A 200 cubic inch in-line six cylinder replaced the 170 cubic inch in-line six cylinder which was available in the early 65 models. The 289 "Hi-Po" (engine code "K") continued as a late '65 option.
