1965 Ford MustangThis is my Father's 1965 Ford Mustang 289 V8, it has been sitting in a storage facility for the past 5 years, and was kept in a garage for 20 years prior to that.
My older brother drove this car back and forth to college at Miami University, and then to San Diego State University throughout his 20's, hence the stickers on the back windshield.
This Mustang has been in our family since inception. My Father is the original, and only owner.
He has many stories of him in his younger years, early 20's, transporting 4 kids and a dog on vacations, and holidays in this little Mustang.
My Mom then drove the car, after getting fitted with some "cherry bomb" mufflers on it in Chicago. My Dad said the whole neighborhood knew when she was coming home because she would back the car down around turns, letting the exhaust rumble throughout the neighborhood, terrorizing the up-tighter folk.
My Mom always thought the car was dangerous because it was rear wheel drive, and light, so the rear end would always slide out. I recall my Dad saying they would put bags of sand in the trunk to counteract that.
I am hoping someone will enjoy this car for all the memories and stories it has had over the years, and appreciate it for the former glory it once was, it has brought our family a lot of joy from owning it the past 50 years.
The buyer will have to arrange for the car to be picked up with a trailer, as I do not have the means to ship it.
