Not all great bargain 1965 Ford Mustangs are created equal. There are some cool cruisers out there bent on keeping it very original (and we've got a few of those for sale, too.) But then you get a coupe like this – shimmering Burgundy with upgraded wheels and trim. It's the kind of custom Mustang you would have built to get attention in '65, so you know it grabs even more today.
Someone really enjoyed making the right investments in this coupe's appearance, and it's you who can benefit. The original code-X Burgundy has been given a professional respray to have the kind of modern gloss and shine to make it look like a cherry Tootsie Pop. The full luster in the deeper shade of red makes for the perfect backdrop to coordinate with the new darker black elements. The rocker stripes that match the pattern used on the hood and trunk give this a mixture of a Shelby and sinister-style attitude. Plus the hood scoop borrowed from the later '60s Mustangs is a powerful statement. Add in mirror-like bumpers and trim, and top it off with large 17-inch U.S. alloy wheels – now you've got a coupe that knows how to standout in a crowd.
A black vinyl interior continues this aggressive attitude. But this isn't a full sea of darkness. The desirable console has the stylized bright strip running though the center of the car. Plus, there's plenty of brightwork on the original style dash and door panels. And speaking of original, this one feels authentic right down to the correct trunk mat. But a classic like this was meant for driving. That's you you'll enjoy resting your left hand on the upgraded sports steering wheel, and your right one will gravitate to the chrome shifter.
Ford's reliable and perky 289 cubic-inch V8 moves the lightweight Mustang enthusiastically through any traffic. The engine bay is presented nicely with bold the Ford blue on the block as well as satin black Edelbrock air cleaner. The tidy wire, hoses, and belts tell you this has been well maintained. Plus, you get extra power and rumble as this V8 exhales through long tube headers that feed the X-pipe dual exhaust. The throaty sound the V8 makes will be the kind of intoxicating rhythm that will have you wanting to take this classic everywhere. Adding to the drive anywhere/anytime attitude is the three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and an adjustable coilover rear suspension.
With the great looks, the right features, and a gone tomorrow price, you know this classic Mustang is getting plenty of eyeballs. So hurry if you want to take this one home. Call today!!!
