1965 Ford Mustang GT

Someone really knew what they were doing when ordering this 1965 Ford Mustang GT convertible. It's hard to find a more desirable first full production year pony car than a factory built, black-on-red V8 GT with a four-on-the-floor. And now with a high quality restoration, here's a rare opportunity at your dream turnkey classic Mustang.Code A Raven Black is one of the coolest ways to represent this American icon. The dark mirror shine on the convertible body is the most intimating way to distinguish your Mustang from the more friendly pony cars out there. The pictures don't even do this paint justice. The level of investment into this car's restoration meant taking it down to bare metal, epoxy priming it, and then adding the factory-correct darkness. Plus, this one still has all the right GT equipment included from the factory, including the fog lights in the grille, the badges on the fender, and the bright trumpet-style dual exhaust out back. The whole premium droptop look would not be complete without the optional iconic styled steel wheels. As a very cool touch, the Goodyear double redline tires seem like the perfect matching endcaps to the side rocker red accent package. But more than just appearance, this one has a great story. The car was delivered to the Charlotte ordering district when new. A father and son duo found it in the local area in 1980, and they have cared for and restored it over the last 35+ years. So this highly desirable convertible has been a true Charlotte area car all its whole life!Under the black folding roof is a fantastic red interior. This just seems like the perfect color for an aggressive Mustang like this. Not only does it match the exterior accent color, but also it just makes this Mustang look like a volcano with red-hot lava at its core. It pops! More than just a terrific first impression, the interior has all the right features to make you happy. This includes desirable options like the premium "pony" package on the bucket seats and the center console. In fact, the wood paneling and bright trim running down the center of the car does a great job of coordinating with the three-spoke steering wheel, upgraded AM/FM radio, and ultra-desirable round gauge package that was specific to GT cars in '65.As a GT, you would expect something special under the hood. That's why it not only looks fantastic with the shiny air grabber and valve covers, but also if you look closer at this 289 cubic-inch V8, you'll see a four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the motor has been bored .30 over when rebuilt for added displacement/performance. Best of all, there are only about 20 miles on this full rebuild package. But the investment in this convertible was not just the motor. You can see in the undercarriage shots how everything is so tidy, and you even have the correct red primer. As immaculate as this Mustang looks, you won't be able to resist taking it out on the road. After all, the four-speed manual means you have complete control over the powerplant on your favorite backroads. And the front disc brakes provide the level of security that makes this a truly upper-class classic.A '65 Mustang GT convertible is already a rare and desirable site. So when it has been restored to demanding standards and finished in its awesome factory-correct colors, well then, you know you how quick you have to be to take home this rare pony. Call today!!
