289 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, 4-WHEEL POWR DISCS, PWR STEER, ICE-COLD A/C, AWESOME PONY!

With all the merely “pleasant” Pony Mustangs selling like hot cakes these days, it's nice to see one that walks with a lot more swagger. Recently restored with performance and killer looks as the main goals, this restomod beauty is one of the slicker early Mustang coupes we've featured here at Streetside, and we've had quite a bit. Slick burgundy paint with white stripes, a wicked stance, and a powerful 289 V8, this '65 Mustang Pony checks all the boxes.

But before we talk about the hardware, let's take a look at how pretty this sporty coupe is. With a finish that looks borrowed from a late-model color palate, the Burgundy Metallic paint looks just right on the vintage coupe's bodywork. Miles deep with a great luster that pops out in the sunlight, it has a great shine thanks to a fairly recent application, plus an inviting look that doesn't hide the Mustang's identity behind excessive flash. Instead, it shows off straight sheetmetal, good gaps, and a lot of the love that went into the build. But it is a Restomod after all, and the builders added some custom touches: the GT350-style front valance, scooped hood complete with hood pins and lanyards, and the GT350-style side scoops, and the ...

Description

289 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, 4-WHEEL POWR DISCS, PWR STEER, ICE-COLD A/C, AWESOME PONY!

With all the merely "pleasant" Pony Mustangs selling like hot cakes these days, it's nice to see one that walks with a lot more swagger. Recently restored with performance and killer looks as the main goals, this restomod beauty is one of the slicker early Mustang coupes we've featured here at Streetside, and we've had quite a bit. Slick burgundy paint with white stripes, a wicked stance, and a powerful 289 V8, this '65 Mustang Pony checks all the boxes.

But before we talk about the hardware, let's take a look at how pretty this sporty coupe is. With a finish that looks borrowed from a late-model color palate, the Burgundy Metallic paint looks just right on the vintage coupe's bodywork. Miles deep with a great luster that pops out in the sunlight, it has a great shine thanks to a fairly recent application, plus an inviting look that doesn't hide the Mustang's identity behind excessive flash. Instead, it shows off straight sheetmetal, good gaps, and a lot of the love that went into the build. But it is a Restomod after all, and the builders added some custom touches: the GT350-style front valance, scooped hood complete with hood pins and lanyards, and the GT350-style side scoops, and the trumpeted exhaust out back. Clearly, they were thinking carefully about this car as it was going together, and when the painters laid down those White Pearl Metallic stripes (those aren't decals), they took them end-to-end for an awesome look that adds to the already off-the-charts curb appeal. Sure, it's no trailer queen and some minor imperfections can be found upon closer examination, but with street presence like this, this higher-end driver-quality Pony won't find any complaints from me. The blacked-out front grilles and upgraded headlights complement the car perfectly, and with a racing gas cap and smooth rear valance, "sporty" doesn't even begin to define this coupe. Bright chrome trim on the bumpers, window surrounds, and lights is all quite nice, and the entire car has a very polished look that hasn't been diminished in the short time since it was built.

As nice as the exterior is, the upgraded interior will get your heart racing for sure. A classic Pony interior is always the best choice in a 1st generation Mustang, especially the two-tone black-and-white hides draped around the sporty buckets that anchor this cabin. In great shape and all-day comfortable, they're far more supportive than anything from 1965, and the fresh-looking upholstery continues onto the matching backseat (which barely looks used) and complementary black door panels at the flanks. The interior also offers a taut headliner above, plush black carpets below, and a super-clean dash-pad up front, all of which fully insulate the cabin and make this Pony feel tight and superbly finished inside. An aftermarket center console with cup holders and extra storage is a great addition to any Mustang, and the brightly chromed T-handle shifter that manages the C4 automatic transmission is just a short reach away. There's a GT-spec gauge panel ahead of the driver - filled with original-style units - and the bright accents on the gauge bezel, glove box, and door handles really spice things up inside this sporty interior. Anchoring the cockpit is a beautiful 3-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel that feels great in the hands of the driver, and a modern retro-style AM/FM/AUX head unit powers upgraded speakers stashed inside the cabin. And perhaps best of all, a modern R134a A/C system was cleverly installed into the cabin, and it blows ice cold air through chrome vents attached underneath. Out back, the trunk is solid, albeit not quite as neatly finished as the rest of the cabin, but still features thick black carpets on the floors for insulation.

Under the hood is where the party really gets started, where a powerful 289 V8 runs the show. Augmented with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an Edelbrock aluminum intake, it was built to deliver solid performance that can still handle regular driving on modern roads, offering up responsive power up and down the throttle. Torquey, smooth, and virtually bulletproof when well-maintained, the small block has enough horsepower to embarrass any Camaro that wants a taste, effortlessly moving the lightweight coupe around town, and the motor is beautifully presented with Ford Racing valve covers and a matching Ford Racing air cleaner. Block-hugging headers help the small block breathe easy and feed into a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system below, which sounds fantastic whether at idle or at full bore. Chrome shock-tower braces and a chrome inner fender stabilizer help stiffen the body in and out of the corners, while a big aluminum radiator with an auxiliary electric fan helps keep the whole show nice and cool under any conditions. The aforementioned C4 3-speed automatic transmission is the perfect complement to the snarky V8, spinning a Ford 9-inch rear end that can handle off-the-line power and highway cruising speeds alike. Power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes drastically improve this Mustang's road manners, while air shocks out back help set that wicked stance. Slick 15-inch Cragar S/S wheels are always in fashion and they carry staggered 215/45/17 front and 245/45/17 rear performance radials that fit the car's personality perfectly.

Given the price of the conversion and the quality of the paint and interior, we have to call this car a screaming bargain because it would take considerably more to replicate the build. And like most Pony Mustangs here at Streetside Classics, we doubt it'll last long. Call today!
