1965 Ford Mustang
A 1965 Ford Mustang built to be a proper cruiser is always an attractive idea. So take a look at the upgrades like the fuel-injected V8, A/C interior, high-discharge headlights, and all the other pieces that make this a classic for the modern era. A red first-year Mustang has instant appeal. The long hood, short deck, and deep C-channel running down the side ushered in a whole new era of American style that had the rest of Detroit scrambling to catch up. But this example also has much more appeal than just history. You see it in the details like the mirror-like chrome bumpers and the shine of the HID headlights. Plus, an updated set of wheels gives this pony car a little Bullitt-style attitude. Inside you can tell they invested in some thoughtful upgrades just by the appearance of the seats. The exterior red is now joined by a tasteful black, and the way this is united on the custom black seats with red piping really gives the whole interior a sense of harmony. This has all the right classic Mustang elements, like the bright gear selector, artful three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that is the large speedo flanked by round readouts. But there are also plenty of comfortable upgrades. You get a center console that has an armrest and cup holders. There's a retro-style AM/FM stereo that has a digital tuner and aux input for the most modern music players. Plus, the air conditioning is blowing cold from modern R134a. And the modern Holley Sniper EFI readout lets you know there are some nice upgrades under the hood, too. We always love seeing Ford's famous 289 V8, especially when it has some extra flair in places like the polished valve covers, air topper, and compressor. But what's really impressive is the substance behind the shine. This replaced the classic carb setup with a performance fuel-injection module that you get to dial in from the interior readout. And you get to enjoy the performance soundtrack even more as headers feed a glasspack-style dual exhaust. You even have the right supporting components like an MSD distributor and newer hoses. Plus, an aluminum radiator with an electric fan is there to help keep this V8 running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Yokohama tires, and you start to see how this Mustang was made for cruising. This is a nice classic with the right upgrades to be a real driver. That makes it distinctive, useful, and irresistible. So don't let it slip away, call today!
