1965 Ford Mustang Coupe
When introduced at the 1964 World's Fair, the Ford Mustang began the era of the “pony car”. Named not for its title “Mustang” but for ushering in a class of American Muscle cars, that were affordable sporty coupes with long hoods, and short rear decks. Wildly popular, the Mustang design flew off the showroom floors. Even today current models make use of the running horse emblem, that has stayed with the car for 55 years.
For consignment a “parts all there and original” 1965 Mustang. With plenty of patina on the paint, good chrome, clean untouched interior, and running fine, this car could be driven right out the Classic Auto Mall front door and enjoyed or taken and restored. Either way it's all there!
A heavy respray of Caspian Blue covers the panels of this car. Orange peel texture abounds, however there is no rust, panels are straight, and all chrome badging and brite-work on this car are very good with no pitting or dulling. Standard clean Mustang wheel covers are noted on all 4 corners.
Blue vinyl abounds interior-wise with door panels, seats, and dash covered with it. All appears original and clean, certainly not perfect, but no rips or tears on the buckets or back bench, slight puckering on the driver's door panel where it meets the armrest, but all the basics that this car was born with are still there. Carpet is good, and is blue, and the white headliner shows some wear with minor staining near the stitching for the panels, and a tear near the rear window.
Flipping the hood, we assume the engine is original, as it is the correct engine the car was born with…that being a 289ci V8 with a single 2-barrel carburetor and attached is a Ford 3.03 top loader 3-speed manual transmission. The engine bay is unrestored, and even the original FoMoCo windshield washer bag is intact and attached!
The typical surface rust, however, frame appears solid. A heavy coating of rustproofed covers the floorpans, and some of the frame, and it appears structurally sound. Rockers show the same heavy undercoating, and appear solid, and the bottom of the doors show no rust whatsoever.
Unfortunately, not a lot is known about this car other than what the eye can see. It runs, starts quickly, and appears to have all its born-on attachments. A total package and a do what you want with car, but you have a great start!
