Not all pony cars are created equal. When you can find a real-deal 1965 Ford Mustang GT in its rare factory-correct colors and has an upgraded A/C interior, well then you realize that this coupe is more than just affordable...it's an exceptional classic.
The factory-correct code-5 Twilight Turquoise is always going to instantly attract an audience. But this one does it even better with a hint of sinister sports car attitude courtesy of the GT package elements. After all, these icons get so much cooler with the correct GT elements like the fog lights in the grille, the white triple stripe on the rocker panels, and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. Overall fit and finish is very good, making it the kind of car you want to drive around and show off. Chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, and all the little trim pieces are in place, right down to the factory wheel covers and proper GT badges on the fenders.
Open the door, and you'll love to see the correct code-62 blue & white luxury interior. Everything looks great in complementing dual colors on the seats, door panels, and dash. You've got plenty of original pieces like the center console with wood paneling that matches the steering wheel, glovebox, and gauge panel. And speaking of the gauges, you get the GT-specific five-round readout panel that's very desirable on these '65s. If you look close you can also spot some terrific upgrades. This includes the radio that looks correct with its bright knob-style appearance, but it's actually a modern digital tuner with an auxiliary input so you can play modern music in your classic. And everyone loves to have ice-cold air conditioning, especially when it's running modern R134a for easy servicing.
As a true factory GT, that also means you had to have the upgraded V8. So yes, under the hood is an A-code 289 cubic-inch motor with the enhanced compression and correct Motorcraft four-barrel carburetor. Not only does the engine bay look like a great time warp with the correctly painted gold air cleaner and valve covers, but also the V8 is believed to be original to the car. One turn of the key, and the dual exhaust let's people know it's the big dog V8 with its rumble. But more than just a high-performance pony, this loaded Mustang has some great anytime driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
So here it is, a real deal GT wearing it's original colors and a fraction of the price of a fastback. And at such a great price, you know you better call today or may regret it tomorrow!
