1965 Ford Mustang GT K-Code

There's a hierarchy when it comes to 1965 Ford Mustangs, and the 2+2 GT with the K-Code HiPo 289 is king. This was inaugural year for the highly sought after fastback body, so having one with all the best numbers-matching V8 under the hood, four speed, and amazing presentation inside & out means you're looking at rare pony car royalty.There's just something about a Wimbledon White Mustang. The regal name and virginal shine made it a popular tie-in with this icon. A big investment in a factory-correct respray on this car means it pops just as nicely in the sunlight as it did the day it left the Dearborn factory doors over fifty years ago. But beyond the perfect Mustang hue, this car gets its details right. The trim is complete and brightly shining; the gaps are tight and uniform; and the doors hang correctly and shut with a reassuring 'thunk'. But if all you're interested in is having an aggressive pony car, then you're eyes have been locked on the full GT packaging. It has the nicer front end with fog lights in the grille, dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence, and of course, the black triple stripe running down the length of the sides. Correct badging all around, including the GT emblem on the fenders. Plus, the iconic Mustang steel wheels and correct double redline tires all tell you this fastback is the total package for those who really care about authentic and rare Mustangs.The interior has been professionally tailored to coordinate with the pristine white and black exterior. The two-tone bucket seats and matching door panels add a touch of class that's only amplified by the premium "Pony" package with horses running wild on the seatbacks. This has a desirable center console, and boldly protruding from the center is the stick shift. That will be your favorite place for your right hand, and you left one will love the gloss black classic steering wheel. Beyond that is the full round gauge panel, which was specific to the '65 GTs. Even more desirable is the optional Rally Pac tach and clock on the steering column. So yes, these pictures are correct...This Mustang looks and feels period correct and premium right down to the AM/FM radio and heat/defrost controls.As much as you'll love the interior and exterior, it's the rare K-code HiPo 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood that will impress even the most fickle Mustang enthusiast. It's the motor that took home the trophies around the globe, and the original numbers-matching powerplant still lives in this engine bay. It shows all signs of great care, foregoing too much racy flash and instead sticking to a nice and tidy factory appearance. With the turn of the key, the dual exhaust gives a high power V8 symphony, and the smooth shifting four-speed makes you the conductor. The Ford nine-inch rear end has versatile 3.50 gears to give it plenty of punch around town but still cruises reasonably at highway speeds. The aforementioned double redline tires and front disc brakes means both a classic appearance and good roadholding.There were only 7,273 K-Code '65 Mustangs ever made. Just think about how many have been harvested or abused over the last half-century, and then you realize what a treasure a complete and cared for car this fastback really is. Rare opportunities like this are fleeting, and forever regretted when missed, so call today!!!
