For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Ford Mustang Roadster is made for the true drivers and enthusiasts out there. With an iconic racing design, a thoughtful layout, side pipes, four-on-the-floor, a powerful 347 stroker motor, and much more, it's all about getting in touch with the essential fun of driving.

Wimbledon White with blue racing stripes painted on top... you know you're looking at a GT350 tribute. This has nice racing detail, too, like the hood pins, hood scoop, chin spoiler, side scoops, rocker stripes, and racing-style Torq Thrust wheels. There are even some nice speedy additions that go beyond the standard tribute, like the R-series front bumper, a CS-style integrated rear spoiler, a color-matched rear bumper, and a thundering set of side pipes. It all makes for a distinct car that was carefully crafted. We're told the consignor owned this car for decades. And it's not just this was upgraded to be a cool Shelby tribute, but it was also upgraded from a coupe to a roadster. You can see how the conversion was done with care from the smooth feel of the door tops, windshield frame, and rear panel. And a particularly nice touch is how the racing stripes continue through the padded roll bar. Plus, without windows or doors, you get a smoother style that doesn't need exterior door handles. While this is a custom creation, we also bet Carroll Shelby would have tried to delete the roof and shed as much weight as possible if he could have. After all, you've seen the Cobra, right?

Since this one is one to the world, the interior has some added style. It includes custom two-tone door panels, smoother rear inner panels, and bold blue upholstery that coordinates with the exterior stripes. And we like the level of thoughtfulness inside. It's in everything from the classic Cobra badges to the radio installed in the passenger door so that the swatch panel can take center stage. And you can tell this Shelby tribute is a driver-focused setup with the racing front bucket seats, grippy sports steering wheel, classic Hurst shifter, and a complete set of AutoMeter gauges with large speedo and tach.

The extra-tidy engine bay shows off the best in Cobra pieces, like the ribbed valve covers and polished Monte Carlo bar. But unlike the GT350, this has a big displacement increase with a 347 cubic-inch stroker V8. It's a full-performance build that also includes aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. There are also nice supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, a Pertronix FlameThrower distributor, steel braided lines, and the batter mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. A nice set of Hedman headers allow this V8 to exhale with added power and plenty of thunder from the side pipes. You take complete control of this soundtrack with the four-speed manual transmission. Subframe connectors, front disc brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As make for a great all-around power car package.

This is a fun way to have a true driver's pony car. So if you love a powerful roadster with a sharp Shelby-level style, don't miss this custom. Call now!
