GORGEOUS RAVEN BLACK, STUNNING RED INTERIOR, NICE RESTORATION, PRICED RIGHT!
Early Mustangs are just as awesome today as they were in 1965 when Ford sold more than a million of them. Six cylinder cars like this 1965 coupe make for fantastic entry-level hobby cars simply because they're stylish, reliable, and parts are incredibly easy to get and affordable. There aren't many cars that are more beloved than the first-generation Mustang.
Wearing a recent coat of Raven Black, this handsome coupe looks far more expensive than it is. Judging by the condition of the undercarriage, it's quite likely that this pony is still carrying all its factory sheetmetal and that since 1965 it's led a pretty good life. Super straight sheetmetal got a thorough once-over to ensure that it was straight, then two-stage urethane went on top, giving it a fantastic shine. Classic first-generation Mustang details like the chrome quarter panel ornaments and Mustang emblems on the front fenders mean that it was done to factory specs and a bright red pinstripe accentuates both the graceful line that runs along the tops of the fenders and the stunning black-over-red color combination. A stock "corral" lives in the grille, the bumpers are probably original and still shine up nicely, and those taillights are among the most recognizable in the entire automotive kingdom.
If you're a regular reader here at Streetside Classics, you also know that our personal favorite color combination is black with a red interior, and the bright red guts in this Mustang look absolutely fantastic. The interior is simply splendid, with reproduction seat covers, bright carpets that haven't been baked by the sun or worn down by passengers, and door panels with correct detailing and hardware. The instrument panel is the early style with a wide speedometer flanked by auxiliary gauges on either end, all framed by the original deep-dish steering wheel. Cars like this were typical daily drivers for many folks, so that explains the relative lack of frills, but with a newer Kenwood AM/FM/ stereo, it's ready to cruise anywhere, and the 3-speed automatic transmission is a willing travel partner. Even the trunk is reasonably-sized for your gear and as you can see, it's in outstanding condition.
Don't make the mistake of underestimating the 200 cubic inch inline-six under the hood. This engine was a mainstay of Ford products throughout the '60s for good reason: it's smooth, torquey, and quite thrifty out on the open road. In today's climate, it kind of makes sense, doesn't it? It still cruises at modern highway speeds and pulls down fuel mileage that any modern Mustang would be pleased to own. Recently detailed under the hood, it's wearing Ford Blue engine enamel, a correct air cleaner and carburetor, and a fresh alternator for reliability. It fires quickly and easily with its characteristic grumble from the single exhaust, and pulls the lightweight little coupe around with aplomb. A new gas tank and correct transverse muffler have been recently installed, so it's ready to enjoy immediately. Flashy red wheels with original hubcaps and 185/75/14 whitewall radials complete the bright look.
No other car in the world is as beloved as Ford's pony, and you can find out why for a very reasonable price. Call today!
