1965 Ford Mustang
Classic Americana doesn't get much better than a first-year 1965 Ford Mustang all dressed in red. And because this V8 hardtop is a memory-maker, you'll be glad it even comes with some interesting paperwork.
When the lines are this iconic, you know you need to have a body this straight. The long hood with aggressive overhang; the deep C-channel that runs along the profile; and the sporty three-element taillights that meet form-fitting chrome bumper it's all what we look for on the coupe that launched the legend. In fact, everything looks correct on this one, right down to the factory wheel covers with Mustang center caps. But there is also a little something extra, too. The bold red paint was added later in life. So while the Candy Apple hue still looks as American as apple pie, it has an extra degree of luster that the factory could never deliver back then.
A pristine black interior is always desirable in a classic, and this one really goes the extra mile because the seat covers, carpeting and dash have received recent investments. So nearly everything you see and touch has been nicely refreshed. Your position in the driver's bucket seat is exactly what you want in a vintage coupe. Your left hand grips the three-spoke steering wheel and your right one rests comfortably on the gearshift. The gauges are crystal clear, and all the right original functions work such as the heat/defrost controls. Even the original-style AM radio is still cranking out tunes, so you truly have a great vintage atmosphere.
The engine bay has some nice upgrades like the bright air topper and matching valve covers. But just like the rest of this car, you're going to really like it for its level of vintage appeal right down to the correct washer fluid bag. Plus, we know you'll like that this C-code car correctly has Ford's trusty 289 under the hood. The V8 still carries the correct two-barrel carburetor, which goes nicely with the added growl of the newer dual exhaust. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission for easy cruising, and this pony car is a great anytime driving choice.
The vintage charm of this coupe is only amplified by the paperwork that accompanies it. This includes the owner's manual, early hand-written maintenance records, and the original temporary tag for when it was sold new in '65. This '65 Mustang is exactly what you want in a classic. So don't let it slip away, call today!
