The first-generation six-cylinder Mustang may not be the muscular
powerhouse that pony cars evolved into, but it captures precisely
what Ford originally intended the Mustang to be: a fun-to-drive
sports car that wouldn't break the bank. These days, however, the
inline-six pony car is fast becoming a unicorn amid the popularity
of both factory-original and V-8-swapped Mustangs. Here is a 1965
Mustang Fastback 2+2, powered by the 200 ci inline 6 cylinder a
mated to an automatic transmission. We can't remember the last time
we saw a 6 cylinder Fastback 'Stang, but we always love to see
them. The "Poppy-Red" paints looks stunning under a bright summer
sun; and it's a nice change of pace from all those bright red 65
Mustangs. The inline-six in the '65 is a pleasure to drive. It
generates plenty of torquey power, yet runs smooth and can be tuned
to get decent fuel economy. Cornering is a thrill: Instead of going
nose-down into a turn like the V-8-powered brute, the nimble
six-cylinder Mustang hugs the corners, handling like real pony car.
