Mustang’s third body style emerges.
The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.
Classic Car Overview
Purchased from owners in southern Ohio, believed to be the 2nd owner. I think I'm #3.
Car was a 6 cylinder, automatic and was mostly disassembled. Doors, top, interior and front fenders were removed.
VIN 5F08T758461 73,082 convertibles were made for 1965.
The original color was a light blue with a blue/white interior.
I acquired it in November 2021 and worked on it until about October 2022 to complete. It is a nice driver quality car with great appearance and performance. Since completed driven periodically and has not achieved the 500 mile break in.
This car has not seen rain or weather since completed. It has been garaged and covered since completed.
It is a responsive engine and drive train. Really looks nice.

What does it need:

I will require complete payment before car or title goes anywhere. (Scams)
Any certified check has to clear my bank before the money part is satisfied. Even certified check scams are too prevalent.
The car wont get on a car carrier/shipper truck until all is satisfied. I don't pay the shipper. I will gladly help with the shipping effort but pickup is at my home in Kentucky.
