1965 Ford Mustang K Code 4 Speed Fastback
This is a gorgeous 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback that is an authentic 4-speed K Code that is all numbers matching. When this car was restored, it was turned into a tribute Shelby GT350H while retaining its original features as a K Code fastback. Our Southern California consignment client has owned this Mustang for the past 20 years and has kept it looking nearly as-new. With what appears to be complete recreated inspection markings and numbers matching, this could easily be shown at regional concours events as well as driven on tours. The beautiful black livery features gold racing stripes and the famous Shelby GT350H stripe along the side. The paint quality is excellent and after 20 years still shows extremely well. All of the Shelby badging is complete, including on the wheel center caps, door sills, etc. If we didn't tell you that this was a tribute, you wouldn't know. The black vinyl interior is nearly as new as well, and it also has the abundance of Shelby badging. We love the fold down rear seats that are a feature of the fastbacks. The matching numbers four-speed manual transmission is the way to go and provides the excitement and pleasure of the full driving experience. The interior includes a full array of instrumentation including a Shelby tachometer and all the necessary auxiliary gauges. We love the fact that Carroll Shelby personally signed the passenger-side sun-visor at his office in California! As an authentic matching numbers K Code, this Mustang has its original high-performance 289 CID engine. As a $442 option when new, the 271 hp (202 kW) "K-code" High Performance engine was the single most expensive Mustang option, and only 7,273 of the 680,992 Mustangs sold in 1965 were so equipped. With a skilled driver, K-code/4-speed equipped Mustangs could do 0-60 in around 6 seconds, and put down mid 14-second mile times with ease. This Mustang has many of the Shelby upgrades and looks as aggressive as it performs. The undercarriage is in very nice condition with no signs of rust or damage. Our full inspection revealed that the passenger side trailing arm is slightly bent and the high beams are not functioning. Everything else works well and functions great! The Hagerty Price Guide has the No. 2 example of the K-Code fastback valued at $71,280, so this is priced right.
