For Sale: 1965 Ford Mustang in Alpharetta, Georgia

$32,995

Vehicle Description

The Atlanta Showroom is offering this 1965 Ford Mustang. In 1965 the Ford Mustang Executive stylist John Najjar, who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane, is credited by Ford to have suggested the name. Najjar co-designed the first prototype of the Ford Mustang known as Ford Mustang I in 1961, working jointly with fellow Ford stylist Philip T. Clark. The Mustang I made its formal debut at the United States Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, New York on October 7, 1962, where test driver and contemporary Formula One race driver Dan Gurney lapped the track in a demonstration using the second "race" prototype. His lap times were only slightly off the pace of the F1 race cars. An alternative view was that Robert J. Eggert, Ford Division market research manager, first suggested the Mustang name. Eggert, a breeder of quarterhorses, received a birthday present from his wife of the book, The Mustangs by J. Frank Dobie in 1960. Later, the book's title gave him the idea of adding the "Mustang" name for Ford's new concept car. As the person responsible for Ford's research on potential names, Eggert added "Mustang" to the list to be tested by focus groups; "Mustang," by a wide margin, came out on top under the heading: "Suitability as Name for the Special Car." This 289 V-8 is bolted to an automatic transmission for top down cruising. The chrome dress up kit on the engine is a nice touch for the engine bay. Options include: AM/FM radio, CD Player, Manual convertible top, Power Steering, Vinyl interior, White Wall tires, and Rally Wheels.
