1965 Ford Mustang base

This is a factory V8 car. I don't know if this is the original driveline. We bought it from an elderly man that owned it since 1982 and it was sitting since 2004.I don't know if it's number matching, but I assume it's not.

This is a base model that has no power steering and no power brakes.

There is no door tagso I can't verify what the original features were.

It starts right up and I move it around the yard every couple of weeks.

Runs & Drives but is NOT ready to be driven away, I strongly recommend a trailer to haul back to your place.

The previous owner said it was an AC car and he provided the old AC components (refer to photo). All the components are old and need to be rebuilt.

From 20' away, this is a real head turner; but, once up close you can see this really needs to be restored. This is not a rust bucket like so many others are, however there is clear evidence of body work to the quarters androof. There is a small amount of rust evident around the back window (refer to photobuck link for detailed photos), but since this is a Texas car the rust is low overall.

The seats are decent but will need new factory covers installed.

Tires all hold air (like new condition with tread, but evidence of cracks in sidewall from sitting for 13 years).

Engine does not smoke or knock, but it needs a full tune up. We left the oil in it so the buyer could see it "as is" - no evidence of water or coolant, etc.

I set the reserve low because I really need my garagespace back for upcoming home remodel projects.
