1965 Ford Mustang Fastback
1965 Ford Mustang Fastback
The Mustang was originally available as either a hardtop or convertible, but during the car's early design phases a fastback model was strongly considered. In 1965, a newly introduced fastback body version with its swept-back rear glass and distinctive ventilation louvers became available.
Imagine having the coolest new car on the block in 1965, the Ford Mustang. Then ramp that up and imagine the coolest version of said wildly popular Mustang, that being the fastback version. Couple that with a 289ci V8 and strap a 4-barrel carburetor on and now you are living large. One of the earliest built versions of this ultimate cool, we give you this fastback to grace your driveway, and also give you the ability to turn the key and drive away, in this fully restored version of one of their most popular cars ever built.
From the galloping pony on the front honeycombed grille, to the fog lights which frame the nose vents that sit beside the single headlight, all the way back to the sloping rear roof line with the iconic louvers this beautiful pony car possesses little faults. It's all about awe with the near perfect Rangoon Red respray, restored chrome and brite work, and classic original polished wheel covers and dish rims. And for giggles, let's throw in a tasteful black racing stripe right above the rocker. Bringing up the rear is a GT emblazoned gas filler cap, chrome encircled through holes for chrome tipped exhaust. It just does not get any better than this.
Hold that last thought…because throw open the doors and reveal a pristine black vinyl interior seating setup of a 2+2. This is grounded by fade free carpet, and a simple “T” gearshift between the luxury buckets up front. Looking at the dash, we see a wonderful amalgamation of Rangoon Red metal, and black vinyl with chrome bezeled circular instruments flanking a speedometer. Also, factory air hangs below the dash, as well as 2 additional aftermarket gauges to keep the driver up to date on essentials as they pertain to the massively upgraded power plant.
A pop of the hood and you'll have to squint, because there is so much bling you will barely be able to stand it! A proper 289ci V8 topped by an Edelbrock Torker 2 Intake, and a 600CFM Edelbrock electric choke carburetor. Attached is a C-4 automatic transmission. Malory provides the electronic distributor, and its coupled with an Access Supercoil. Exhaling is done by Long Tube headers, and stock exhaust.
Doesn't get any better than this, rust free, good floorpans, unibody seams, and power drum brakes with dual master cylinder.
