CLASSIC FASTBACK, 289 V8, 4 SPEED MAN, COLD A/C, PONY INTERIOR, PWR STEER, NICE!
There's a hierarchy when it comes to 1965 Mustang bodies, and the 2+2 is king. This was inaugural year for the highly sought after fastback body, so having one that looks this original isn't just attractive; it's also a sound investment.
Crisp lines, great detailing, and a beautiful Rangoon Red paint job make this one timeless. This Mustang started out life a more mute color, but the point of a pony this beautiful is to be recognized. Bright red is always a great choice on a Mustang for highlighting the fastback's dramatic long hood/short deck design, and the sporty side cove that carves through its flanks. Workmanship is excellent, and you'll probably find that no panel was overlooked when this one was being refinished. It even has some nice upgrades with the GT-style wheels and grille.
If you thought the paint on the outside was bright, just check out the brilliant white interior. It has been kept near pristine, as well as the dark carpts. This has been given the special Pony package, which adds a touch of class with horses running wild on the seatbacks. The premium packaging also included the dash wood paneling, to match the three-spoke sports steering wheel. Keen eyes will notice that this one has been upgraded to the GT-specific full gauge panel. While this is great for the driver, everyone else in the car will really enjoy this fastback's ice-cold air conditioning. Even with all these upgrades, this Mustang hasn't lost its everyman vintage charm that made it an icon. In fact, it even still has its original AM radio.
Under the hood of this pony car is a correct C-code 289 cubic inch V8 motor. This two-barrel carburetor model has plenty of power to enjoy on Saturday night cruising. We like the pull of this motor, but we also know how value-priced this fastback is. So, we suspect most of you looking at this 2+2 may have some plans of utilizing your cash savings to invest in the huge world of speedy parts for this versatile motor. Still, the best performance part is already installed on this coupe. The four-speed manual transmission has a smooth and quick action Hurst shifter, and knowing how to row these gears is the best way to make sure the V8 is performing in its optimal powerband. But despite the fastback style, this one is not completely about speed. When it's time just to enjoy a long road trip, this pony has no problem stretching its legs. Mustangs are not typically fussy or finicky. They are built with stout parts backing their sporty looks, so you don't have to be afraid to drive one. In fact, the power steering and the modern grip of the Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTS tires are signals that this one is begging for more than just the long way home.
This is an affordable way to get one of the most desirable styles of the early Mustang. We know it won't last long in our showroom as fastbacks never do. Be first and call now!!
