Classic Car Overview

For consignment, a 1965 example of the very popular Ford Mustang from the first year and in convertible form. A mild restoration about 6 years ago, and some cosmetic enhancements during our consignors ownership make for one great driving, simply to work on 6 cylinder pony with an automatic transmission. A drivers driver if you will. A nice color change for the paint, a smoothly working convertible top, chrome drilled wheels and a beautiful interior which is clean and basic yet functional. One of the great examples here donning the halls of Classic Auto Mall. Exterior Driver quality crisp white paint drapes the straight steel rust free panels of this car. A few inclusions and minor scratches are seen in a few areas along with some loss of definition on the rear wheel arches due to body repair. Overall shiny and nice white paint over straight steel panels that are minding their gaps make up the body. Up front, flanking the galloping Mustang badge are the single headlights in the faux vented inserts. Like new chrome, correct and very nice badging, the hockey stick cove with the chromed trim on the rear quarter and clean lines running the length of the body. With shiny chrome clad drilled wheels, this first year Mustang has you arriving in style and class. A white, clean canvas top is in excellent condition, mostly clear rear windshield, and flawless up and down power motion tops this classic. Deeply treaded 195/70R14 radials wrap those snazzy chrome wheels. Interior With nearly every part of a 1st generation Mustang interior available from a catalog its hard to tell these days whats original and whats replaced. But I can tell you this, the interior before us is clean, mean and looking just fine. Black ribbed vinyl door cards grace the textured steel door shells and are dressed with chrome for the cranks. Slipping inside leads our posteriors to a pair of tuck and roll and smooth vinyl lowback bomber style buckets, all in excellent condition, nice and tight, and show no signs of wear. A matching bench is in the rear and appears as nice as the buckets. Black carpet, clean and like new, floats this interior and is protected by Mustang embroidered mats up front and holds the chrome T-handle shifter on the hump. In front, this dash is all original with the central speedometer, and a single flanking circular gauge cluster on either side. A nice factory steering wheel is in front of this dash, and as we pan right, an original AM radio is inserted and installed into the center. A note to the trunk space with the charcoal gray carpeted liner, which looks just fine. Drivetrain Under the hood we see a very nicely restored 200ci inline 6 cylinder. It is in a really clean black engine bay with the engine painted Ford blue and matching blue painted valve cover and air cleaner to compliment. On top is a 1-barrel carburetor and nice supple rubber hoses and no corrosion can be seen under this hood. On back is a 3-speed automatic transmission which sends power to a 7.25 rear axle weighing in with 2.75 gears. Undercarriage Overall very nice underneath, clean black paint, surface rust on the usual suspects, solid floor pans and toe kicks and rockers. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners, and torque boxes are all solid. Bottom inside of the doors are clean, and the thresholds are looking good. Single exhaust is on in stock form and looking good, albeit with some surface rust. Drive-Ability A very easy starter, and smooth idle during warmup. Off to the test track, and here at said track, this car performed flawlessly. Nice smooth acceleration, tight steering, and bias free panic stopping. Shifting was a breeze with the automatic, and cruising at highway speed proved no problem for the 6 cylinder under the hood. With some nice new restored parts on this car it has a touch of pony class, and just a little extra than the run of the mill 1965 Mustang. A drop top to enjoy and drive without the fear of a stone chip or scratch in a multi-thousand dollar paint job. Money well spent on the interior and engine which all work together to make this car an A grade consignment and an eye catcher/head turner. 5F08T769287 5-1965 F-Dearborn, MI Assy Plant 08-Convertible T-200ci 6 Cylinder 1bbl 769287-Sequential Unit Number WARRANTY TAG BODY 76A-Convertible Standard Interior Buckets COLOR R-Ivy Green TRIM 26-Standard Black Buckets DATE 26T-June 26th 1965 Build DSO 23-Philadelphia AXLE 2-Ford 7.25 2.75 Conventional TRANS 6-C4 Automatic
