1965 Ford Mustang GT Fastback

Someone really knew what they were doing when ordering this 1965 Ford Mustang GT. It's hard to find a more desirable first full production year pony car than a factory built black fastback. And this rare example has had a ton invested during its 10-year restoration to keep that original spirit while making it a better all-around driving machine. Code A Raven Black is one of the coolest ways to represent this American icon. This dark mirror shine is the... result of a $11k investment in the paint alone. it's absolutely worth it. Because on the fastback body, this dark hue is the most intimating way to distinguish your Mustang from the friendlier pony cars out there. Plus, this one has all the right GT equipment, including the fog lights in the grille, the badges on the fender, and integrated exhaust out back. Yes, this one comes with the paperwork to let you know it's a rare and real-deal GT. We love how the red triple-rocker stripe gives this midnight hero the look like it's out for blood. The upgrade to a polished Halibrand-style Shelby wheel adds to the distinction and sporty appeal. Just like the exterior, the interior has been given a solid investment to be the perfect mixture of vintage and upgrades. The bucket seats are upgraded later-model high-back units for better comfort. There was another $1,000 invested here, and so they have been expertly integrated thanks to covers following the proper Mustang pattern. Also, just like the exterior, this is a tasteful integration of black, red, and chrome. You see it everywhere from the center console to the GT-style round gauge package (and yes, those are modern readout with a cool red glow.) The radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM digital unit that fits nicely into the original knob-style housing, and there's even a plug-in for your iPod. So you can have more modern tunes without losing the vintage feeling. In fact, retaining the vintage atmosphere has also meant expertly integrating incognito upgrades like the power windows and modern R134a air conditioning. Under the hood is more black and chrome in a show-ready total package. Spokane Performance built this 289 cubic-inch V8 by reworking the original heads, and adding upgrades like the fabricated valve covers, upgraded pulleys, Monte Carlo bar, large aluminum radiator, and a Holley Performance four-barrel carburetor. The result is a stout V8 worthy of this A-code car's heritage. Plus, you take complete control over this performance build with the rebuilt close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. All this power is nothing without control, that's why there's been a recent investment in the suspension that includes a Total Control Products front strut and coilover setup, Flaming river power rack & pinion, and an Eaton Truetrac rear with a limited slip, traction bars, and 3.55 gears. Plus, with upgraded front disc brakes, ABS, and the modern grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires, this Mustang is a true handler. The sale comes with a ton of paperwork documenting both its authenticity and its investments. This includes the original window sticker, bill of sale, warranty card, factory build sheet, dealer invoice, title documentation, owner's manual, build receipts, services manuals, and a CD filled with restoration photos. There's so much that went into this build that we can't list it all. So call us for all the details on this amazingly restored and upgrade real-deal first-year Mustang GT.
