1965 Ford Mustang

This 65 Mustang was rebuilt from the ground up. The car runs and drives fine with no issues. This Mustang purchased at an estate in Southern California. Vehicle can be seen or driven in Williamsport, PA area. We can arrange shipping for you, or arrange your own, or come drive it home! Has 3500 miles on it since completion of the total rebuild/restoration. Starting with the body, chrome and paint.......... A frame up restoration. The Car has always been a southern California Car and very little rust had to be dealt with, but the small amount of rust that was found was cut out and replaced with metal. This includes the area below the back window where Mustangs traditionally collected water. Many weeks were spent getting the body to show car condition before the Ford Mineral Grey enamel paint was applied with ghost stripes, and then clear coat added after that. The doors, trunk and hood fit better today than when the car first left detroit ........ simply because more time was spent fitting them properly than when new. The bumpers, grill and trim were re-chromed or replaced if the quality was lacking in any way. SUSPENSION: The old school looking 17" Centerline wheels mounted on new rubber (less than 3,000 miles) retain the original look the owner was striving for. A great deal of work was done to keep the tires and wheels inside the original wheel wells. The suspension package was also re-built and updated including Shelby upper control arms, 620 lowering springs, 1 inch sway bar in the front and 3/4 inch in the rear, Caltrac traction bars and line loc on the front brakes which were changed to 13 inch Cobra front disc with cross drilled rotors and 12 inch rear's with upgraded calipers on all 4 corners and stainless steel lines front and rear ...... plus 5 leaf reverse eye springs. The car drives smooth without any body roll and the stopping power is quite good even with the added power under the hood. ENGINE BAY: The original 289 V-8 engine was re-built and up-graded by famed Ed Hale engine shop near San Diego. The engine like the rest of the Car was upgraded for more performance ......... but still keeping in mind the firm goal of being reliable and easy to drive even in traffic. Upgrades under the hood include World's product heads, 2.02/1.60 valves and roller rockers, Shelby valve covers, single plane modified intake to clear stock hood, modified carb for blow thru with Extreme Velocity carb hat, full ASD ignition, custom fitted radiator with custom brackets, single T70mm turbo kit, custom forward facing headers, Tial blow off valve and JGS 40mm wastegate with 3 inch exhaust out the back, polished 3 inch down pipe done with stainless and aluminum, sumped stock tank and sending unit with boost regulator, AN feed and return lines for A1000 Fuel Pump mounted in the rear. The battery was relocated to the trunk and sits in a custom billet housing. The engine was not run on a Dyno but conservative estimates put the horsepower output in the 350 to 375 range. TRANSMISSION/DRIVETRAIN: The car is fitted with a close ratio toploader 4 speed transmission with a scatter-shield, king cobra clutch and roller bearing upgrade to clutch pedal, 3.5 inch aluminum driveshaft to a Custom Currie heavy duty housing rear end, Currie axles, limited slip and 31 spline axles to a 3.25 ratio. Again ....... a great deal of planning was put into the engine and drivetrain mods to insure there is not a weak link anywhere in the drivetrain. INTERIOR: As with the exterior of this Mustang, the owner wanted the interior to reflect the original and classic good looks of the original 1965 Mustang. The front seats and the rear seats are new old stock and then an aftermarket gauge package, shift light, air fuel ratio, and boost gauge have been added. The metal area of the door panels and the dash correctly match the exterior mineral Grey color. The stereo system has also been upgraded with new speakers front and rear plus an amp and sub-woofer mounted in the trunk. The trunk is about the only thing that is not completely finished on this car, and the finishing of the trunk only involves hiding the wires for the sub-woofer and attaching the carpet which is already installed ...... but the new owner needs to do something! Had a mouse in the trunk at some point and having the and the interior shampooed / cleaned as there is a musty odor. No damage however beyond that. Payment by bank wire only.
