Classic Car Overview

This is a 1965 Ford Mustang Sleeper Series. It is well worth the time to read. This car is 1 of 6 ever built! In 1964 when the new Ford Mustang was introduced to the public, Carroll Shelby and Ford Motor Company developed what was to be the Sleeper Series . A body sedans were outfitted with the Drag Pack which consisted of the high performance 289, 4 speed transmission, limited slip differential and rally pack. Carroll Shelby ordered (6) A body Mustangs from Ford with the Paxton SuperCharger. The cars were delivered to Carroll Shelby with the Paxton SuperCharger in the trunk. A.F. Escobar & Sons Ford Dealership in Norwalk, CA took delivery of the cars. The suspensions were customized to Shelby standards. These 6 Mustangs were auctioned off as a promotion to 6 lucky people. However, they had to be campaigned on the drag strip. The first test of the Mustangs drag ability, it ran a 13.87 mile with a speed of 103.09. Not bad for a street car. In 1967, the car broke a rod during a drag race. The car was taken back to Ford where a 302 block was acquired. The motor was built to Shelby Specs. ED Iskenderian of Iskenderian Cams personally ground the cam. The Paxton was updated, reinstalled and the car was returned to the owner. When the original owner became ill, the car was stored in an environmentally controlled garage where it stayed for 10 years. The current owner used Mustang Decoder website to start his research on the car. He then called Shelby American in Las Vegas, NV thinking they could help him with the information. He made an appointment with Carroll Shelby and he drove the car to Las Vegas. When he met with Carroll Shelby, he looked at the car like it was a standard 1965 Mustang until the current owner told him the story. Then he got a big smile on his face, as only Carroll Shelby can, and hugged the current owner. He said son I have to tell you, your car does not exist . It turns out that Ford was building the Mach 1 Mustang behind Shelbys back.
