For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Columbus, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Cruisin Classics is very excited to present to you the newest addition to our showroom - this stunning 1964 � Ford Mustang Convertible! Production of the 1965 Mustangs began in March of 1964 and Ford formally introduced them at the World's Fair on April 17, 1964. This particular car was manufactured on April 13th, 4 days before the debut - making this a very early 64 �. This Mustang has been lovingly cared for all of these years and it looks spectacular. It is dressed in it's original color of Rangoon Red and according to information passed along by previous owners it was resprayed in 1978 and again in 2005. The paint still shines well after 18 years but does have small imperfections. The white, power convertible top is in very good condition with a nice, clear plastic rear window and it works just as it should. The bright-work on this car is in exceptional condition as are the badges and emblems. The bumpers, rocker covers, door handles, rear quarter accents, window trim, wiper arms, top surround, gas cap, rear lights, side mirrors, and grill all gleam in the light and really accentuate the red paint. The gas cap is correct for 64 � and lacks a security cable. The Mustang emblems that grace the front fenders are the correct 4 3/8" size (later versions are 5"). This beauty sits on 1966 Mustang GT steel wheels with logo center-caps wrapped in brand new Travelstar thin white-wall tires. The original hubcaps with faux knock-off's are in the trunk and are in very good condition. When the hood opens up you'll see that this pony has it's original D-code 4.7 liter 289ci V-8 that was factory rated at 210hp. The black engine block is topped with gold valve covers and a gold air cleaner with black snorkel. The engine bay is very clean, tidy, and stock - containing all of the features that differentiate a 64 � Mustang from 65 models. The hood springs are black, as they should be, and the hood's leading edge has a "stiffening skirt" as opposed to the more rounded edge on later models. The hood bumpers are flat-topped with a phillips screw inset into the center. The radiator core support has vents in the front to keep the battery cool as well as factory assembly line markings designating it as an AT, PS, PT optioned car. The two large horns are located behind the radiator support and their relay is below the regulator. The power steering pump is an Eaton model and the distributor features an oil wick at the bottom. On the passenger side of the engine you'll find a generator (as opposed to an alternator) and an extra long oil dipstick toward the front of the car. The shock tower supports are black, as they should be. The V-8 is mated to a C4 automatic transmission that sends power to the rear with a 3.00:1 standard differential. Exhaust exits through cast manifolds leading to a single exhaust. The brakes are manual with a single resevoir and drums on all 4 corners. When you open the driver's door you'll immediately notice that is has a like-new black deluxe vinyl pony interior. The interior was redone in 2015 (only about 300 miles ago) and it looks fabulous. While it is no longer a stock 64 � interior, it is beautiful and comfortable. The under-dash courtesy lights illuminate the interior as soon as you open the door. The door panels have been replaced with newer ones that have integrated arm rests and pistol grip handles. The glass is in great condition throughout the car and the windows all roll up and down with no issues. The black carpet looks new and is topped off with very nice logo floormats. Between the bucket seats is a full-length center console (as originally ordered) in very good condition. An aftermarket black arm rest with storage box and cup holders has been added atop the center console, but it is not permanently affixed and is easily removeable if desired. The original steering wheel is in great shape with a working horn. The padded dash is crack-free and the bright trim on the gauge cluster and glovebox looks very nice. The driver's air vent knob has an "A" on it and the heater fan has only 2 speeds with off in the center as only 64 �'s do. On the dash is a "GEN" light that would change to "ALT" in later cars. Also on the dash are controls for the 2-speed wipers, the original AM radio (inop.), and a working cigarette lighter. Though the original radio doesn't work, there is a hidden AM/FM receiver with remote that is there to provide some cruisin' tunes. The back seat is equally as nice as the fronts and features seatbelts for passengers. The light in the glovebox works and you'll find an unopened pack of "Mustang" cigarettes from the era inside - just in case you want to make use of the four ashtrays in the car. As you exit the interior and shut the door, you'll see the color-keyed black door lock button which was changed to silver in later cars. In the trunk is a treasure trove of cool extras. The trunk is lined with an original-style plaid vinyl mat topped with black carpeting. There is what seems to be the original bias-ply white-wall spare and the afore-mentioned original hubcaps. In addition, there is a black boot cover for the top, a new FOMOCO washer fluid bag, a new spare tire hold-down, the original 64 � style door handles, and best of all - the original arm rests and door panels with a bunch of great hand-written notes about the car from it's third owner written on the backsides. The third owner had the car for over 22 years and named the car "Sally". He took it many shows and won countless awards with the car. He listed the mileage at 65,000 in 1988 - it currently has only 68,400 miles on it. That's only 3,400 miles in 35 years, no wonder it's still so nice! We also have a great deal of car and owner history in several binders that came to us with the car. Let's face it, there are more 1965 Mustangs than you can shake a stick at, but it's exceptionally rare to find a very early 1964 � with a D-code engine in this condition and with such great provenance. This is an excellent opportunity to get one of the earliest Mustangs made that's ready to hit the road to the next car show today and bring home a trophy!
