FULLY RESTORED IN 2013, EXCELLENT CONDITION, GREAT COLOR COMBO, AWESOME STANG!
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 coat of code R Ivy Green, this handsome coupe looks far more expensive than it is. Judging by the condition of the bodywork, this car was never a winter weather beater and since 1965 it has probably led a pretty good life. Super straight sheetmetal got a thorough once-over in 2013 to ensure that it was straight, then two-stage urethane went on top, giving it a fantastic shine that's a lot nicer than 1965 had to offer. 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, which is kind of refreshing given how easy these cars are to modify and how popular various "clones" are today. A stock "corral" lives in the grille, the front bumper is probably original and still shines up nicely, the rear bumper is brand new, and those taillights are among the most recognizable in the entire automotive kingdom.
The unusual and tasteful color combination is the perfect period complement to the Mustang's low-key personality, and the medium green guts in this Mustang look absolutely fantastic. A few original bits might be showing their age but the rest is simply splendid, with reproduction seat covers, rich carpets that haven't been baked by the sun or worn down by passengers, and door panels with correct detailing and hardware, all installed in 2013. 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, now wrapped in leather. Cars like this were typical daily drivers for many folks, so that explains the relative lack of frills, including the original AM radio in the dash, but 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 with a correct mat and full-sized spare tire.
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, durable, and quite thrifty out on the open road. In today's climate, it kind of makes sense, doesn't it? Rebuilt in 1999, 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 Red 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. New suspension components and correct transverse muffler have been recently installed, so it's ready to enjoy immediately. Original steel wheels with original hubcaps and 195/75/14 whitewall radials complete the authentic 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!
