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 with a light-handed tasteful modifications to improve on the original. A 1965 289ci V8 A-code car is here for the taking. A western car, spending most of its life in Arizona and only coming to the east coast in 2020 when our consignor moved. Having been mostly restored in 2013 along with some cosmetic add ons and upgraded engine internals bringing it closer to the heralded Hi-Po specs and paperwork plus service records back to day one with the original owner. We present to you the 1965 Ford Mustang.
A Poppy Red respray covers the exterior of this car and has some inclusions and cracking in a few areas but otherwise a very. The restored metal is mostly straight with small dinging of the drip rail trim on the passenger's side. Thin mustache like chrome bumpers present well as does the grille surround and floating fog light, corralled horse, and spear assembly. All gaps are good, and the freshman year Mustang cove is showing off proudly. Highly polished 15" American Racing Torque Thrust wheels on all 4 corners and area wrapped in blackwall radial rubber. A shout out to the trunk with its super clean plaid mat, plaid spare tire cove, and steel rear firewall that has been installed for extra safety.
Looking inside we are met with door panels covered in pristine black vinyl tuck and roll with black textured steel door frames and shiny chrome window cranks and door releases. Black standard buckets are up front and a rear bench that are keenly redone with no marks or tears. A black center console races between the seats and looks just fab with its wood applique and ribbed aluminum inlay. A chrome handled black knobbed shifter can be seen growing from the console and is well within the driver's reach. A dual eyebrowed dash pad sits atop the black full metal jacket dash which contains the original instrument cluster, various chrome knobs and sliders, AM/FM radio, and glove box door. A wood rimmed drilled 3 spoke wheel is perched atop the fixed steering column and gives a nice touch to all the black. A clean black carpet floods the floors and is protected by clear rubber mats white an ivory vinyl headliner hangs above.
A beautiful blinged out 289ci V8 sits comfortably in the black engine bay. Inside are some consignor-stated upgrades to make it on par with the legendary Hi-Po 289 and on top we see an aluminum intake manifold and 4bbl carburetor. The bling factor comes in the form of chrome valve covers, air cleaner assembly, shock tower bracing, and Shelby style Monte Carlo bar. Long gone is the original C4 automatic and in its place is a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission courtesy of The Mustang Shop in Phoenix, Arizona. Out back is an 8" 3.55 geared TracLoc rear axle.
All good under here with no rust, all front suspension and steering components appear to be new with independent coil springs and power drum brakes. Not to be outdone, the rear sports what appear to be new shocks and leaf springs and power drum brakes also. Dual exhaust snakes its way rearward and is toned down by a pair of made in the USA stock style mufflers. Bringing up the rear is a new gas tank.
The candles lit right up, running on all 8 cylinders, and gave us a real ride. No bucking bronco here very smooth from the well-done restoration. All functions were operational at the time of our drive, oh and did I mention it's fast too!
Keeping its original exterior color, and most of the interior, this consignor did a fab job on the add ons. Visually it's stunning, and speaking from the seat of my pants, it's powerful! The Poppy Red and the polished Torque Thrusts bring it right down to earth in a heavenly way. All original cars are cool, but this slightly tweaked in design and performance is definitely the way to go with a 1965 A-code pony.
