1965 Ford Mustang Hardtop For consignment, a mostly original example with light-handed tasteful modifications to improve on the original. A former 6 cylinder car, now with a powerful V8 is here for the taking. A ground up car restored 3 years ago, taking 2 years to complete with new rear quarter panels, rockers, trunk floor, and a deep end of the pool paint job. Now with added power steering, power brakes, new suspension and described as a great driver, we present to you the 1965 Ford Mustang. Exterior A Rangoon Red respray covers the exterior of this car and presents with a deep end of the pool finish that goes on for miles. The restored metal is very straight with well minded gaps and bright and shiny chrome and stainless trimmings. Thin mustache-like chrome bumpers present well as does the grille surround and corralled horse with its spear assembly. A Shelby GT350 style scoop is adorning the hood and the freshman year Mustang cove is showing off proudly finished in a custom brilliant white. Classic polished lip 15-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels on all 4 corners and area wrapped in 215/60R15 blackwall radial rubber. Bringing up the tail end is the atypical pony car short trunk lid and below are the always recognized 3 segment chrome trimmed tail lights. A shout out to the trunk with its black steel and gray underlayment liner. Interior Looking inside we are met with door panels covered in pristine white vinyl tuck and roll with a red molded surrounds and black textured steel door frames with shiny chrome window cranks and door releases. Red and white deluxe Pony buckets are up front and a rear bench all show as keenly redone with no marks or tears. Red vinyl makes up the smooth bolsters and for the inserts we see white tuck and roll vinyl with a red galloping horse embossment on the seat uppers. A chrome T-handle knobbed shifter can be seen growing from the carpeted hump and between the buckets is an aftermarket console with a storage bin and twin cup holders. A dual eyebrowed dash pad sits atop the black full metal jacket dash which contains the original instrument cluster, various chrome knobs and sliders, AM radio, and glove box door. A wood rimmed 3 spoke wheel is perched atop the fixed steering column and gives a nice touch to all the black. A clean red carpet floods the floors and is protected by carpeted Mustang logo mats while a tight black vinyl headliner hangs above. Drivetrain A beautiful blinged out and rebuilt 289ci V8 sits comfortably in the black engine bay. Ford Blue paint bathes the block, cylinder heads, intake and valve covers, and has been fitted with a solid flat tappet performance camshaft and Holley 600cfm 4-barrel carburetor. The bling factor comes in the form of a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner assembly, and I cant get enough of the FoMoCo windshield washer bag. Bolted to the back of the powerful mill is a C4 3-speed automatic. Out back is a Ford 8 rear axle to spin the tires. Undercarriage All good under here with no rust, all front suspension and steering components appear to be new with independent coil springs and power drum brakes. Not to be outdone, the rear sports new shocks and leaf springs and power drum brakes also. Dual exhaust snakes its way rearward and is toned down by a pair of stainless steel mufflers. Bringing up the rear is a new gas tank. Drive-Ability The candles lit right up, running on all 8 cylinders, and gave us a real ride. No bucking bronco here very smooth from the well-done restoration. All functions were operational at the time of our drive, oh and did I mention its fast too! Keeping its original looks then taking some liberties with an eye-catching paint scheme and matching interior, this consignor did a fab job on the add ons. Visually its stunning, and speaking from the seat of my pants, its powerful! The Rangoon Red and the Torque Thrusts bring it right down to earth in a heavenly way. All original cars are cool, but this slightly tweaked in design and performance is definitely the way to go with a 1965 pony. 5F07T701912 5-1965 F-Dearborn, MI Assy Plant 07-Mustang 2 Door Hardtop T-200ci I6 701912-Sequential Unit Number Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
