1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

Mustang, Mustang, Mustang! to quote the television advertising in 1965. All the while urging you to walk on your wild side, and your personality will go from dull to a thriller when you get behind the wheel of a 1965 Ford Mustang!

For consignment, a mostly original version of the 1965 iconic Mustang. A 1965 289ci V8 C code car is here for the taking. This car has been lovingly cared for by the current consigner since the early 1970s and actually was used to shuttle a good friend of my crack decoder home from kindergarten in the early 1970s. Since 1977 the car was safely stored in a garage when not in use and serviced at the local Ford dealership.

Sporting its original side and rear window trim and glass, and original grille, it is truly snazzy. Factory paint presents very nicely, with just a few minor faults from inconsiderate parkers on the doors and a large ding on the back from a parallel parking mishap that also involves the rear bumper. The front bumper looks as if it has also had an encounter with something stronger than the bumper! All steel which shows some rust on the outer rockers, is bathed in Springtime Yellow, and shows some aging with additional paint thinning and chips at the gaps. On the pillars some invasive rust is noted on the drip edges.

Looking inside we are met with original door panels covered black vinyl. There are some faults on the padded armrest and lower panel of the door on the driver's side and the passenger's side door is good with just some rub off of the shine on the chrome trimmings. Buckets up front and a rear bench are original and showing in black. Black gaffer tape is covering a hole in the middle of the driver's bucket. Black carpeting covers the floors and is faded on the hump. The dual long eyebrow padded black dash has instrumentation in front of the driver, and a glovebox for the passenger. It has remained virtually unaltered since it was driven off the showroom floor. A tight black headliner is above.

Looking original and unrestored for the engine bay and inserted 289ci V8. Under the gold air cleaner covering is a 2-barrel rebuilt carburetor. On the back is a C4 3 speed automatic with a Ford 8-inch 2.80 rear axle. Some rust on surfaces and an overall nice patina to this engine and bay.

A fine coating of surface rust is seen throughout, particularly on the suspension and brake drums. Floor pans are solid and slightly rusted, and the unibody is solid. Single exhaust sends spent gasses to the rear of the car.

This car sprung right to life running on all 8 cylinders, and gave us a real ride. All functions were working, and braking was solid.

Keeping its original exterior, and most of the interior, this consigner says they drive the car about 500 miles a year. Garaged and showing some age, it will need some TLC on the exterior, and just a few tears repainted on the interior.
