STK 2604 1965 Ford Mustang
The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the 'pony car'. The Mustang's styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of competition. The first generation Mustang was manufactured from 1964 until 1973 and this handsome 1965 Mustang coupe has had a nice restoration. The solid body was professionally reshot in original Ivy Green in 1981 and the finish is still in very good condition, but there is a little webbing on the rear deck. Chrome and stainless trim are excellent. Period-correct Mustang 'Magnum 500' chrome wheels mount BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The interior was fully restored and is stunning – seats, carpeting, door panels and dash are excellent. An aftermarket AM/FM sound system delivers your tunes. This Mustang was an 'A' code car from the factory – 289/4V 'Windsor'. This engine compartment looks totally stock, but we are not positive that it is the original engine. At time of purchase, the current owner was told that it is the original engine that was completely rebuilt in 2012. This 'A' code Windsor with 10.0:1 compression and Autolite 4100 4-barrel carb was factory rated at 225bhp and 305lb/ft. The motor runs beautifully and sounds great through dual exhaust. Power to the ground is delivered via a 4-speed manual gearbox and factory differential. The solid chassis is equipped with manual steering, manual disc/drum brakes w/new dual master cylinder and new shocks. If you want a fun, classic Blue Oval, this sharp Mustang coupe has your name on it. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
