Looking back 50 years from today it is easy to forget the magnitude of that revolution, which was due in no small part to the seemingly endless choices allowing a Mustang owner to personalize his or her new steed. The 1965 model year featured three body styles, four different engines, more than 40 optional factory extras and almost thirty dealer add-ons. The result was one of the most varied and individualized fleet of cars ever made, including this attention-grabbing 1965 Mustang GT, a genuine A-code model equipped with the 289/225 HP small-block V-8. Everyone loves a 1965 Ford Mustang, but when you can fine one like this in its rare factory-correct colors, this pony car is a true standout from the crowd. You can easily love the distinction of this handsome factory-correct X-code Vintage Burgundy Metallic. It was not one of the main colors when new and many have been switched over to more basic paints like red, so this hue is a true find. It's this Mustang's original color, but the modern application adds an extra luster that the factory never could in '65. But even with all this character that makes it valuable, the car also gets the fundamentals right. Gaps and alignment are up to factory standards, which already makes it a standout at most car shows. But then there's the brightwork. The mirror-like bumpers, the iconic Mustang ''corral'' up front, wheel covers all make this a very cool cruiser without being too flashy. Just like the exterior, the interior did not bow to pressure for a more standard color over the decades. This makes the factory-correct black crinkle vinyl a unique feature that will draw attention at the car shows. The highly original interior presents especially nice today with the complementing colors on the bucket seats, door panels, and carpeting. You get the factory three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1965, which offers a sportier look and holds a complete set of gauges. Even the original AM radio is still in place! Since the interior and exterior have not bowed to modern conformity, neither does the engine bay. Instead of an overblown V8, this cool cruiser keeps its original-styling V8. The 289 cubic-inch motor offers plenty of power to move you down the road, and when you do take it to car shows, everyone will love to see something this honest. After all, the Mustang was originally built with the idea of being a practical car for the weekdays and something fun for the weekends and this example does exactly that. We love V8 Mustangs and have plenty we can show you but this car is something different. This one is for someone who appreciates the heart of the Mustang and its culture. If you think you can truly appreciate this all-American classic, please call today!
