You're looking for a first-year 1965 Ford Mustang coupe that has been upgraded to look amazing and be as easy to live with as a daily driver. Don't believe it? How does A/C, cup holders, a five-speed stick, and a performance 5.0-liter V8 sound to you? And if you don't want to break the bank to get it all, this is the one.
It's ok to say “WOW!”, because everyone else is too. The investment in the two-tone is worth the price alone. This looks like the classic black and gold color combo, but when the sunlight hits it, you'll see the dark hue is actually a deep green. So casual glances will give you a thumb's up for a nice interpretation of the Hertz Shelby GT, and people who look closely will be blown away by the true unique color combo. Plus, there's a great-looking red pinstripe that provides a dividing line to further distinguish this custom work. But don't get too focused on the paint, or you might miss some fantastic details. For example, the bumpers have been polished so they can rival the gold for shine. Plus, this coupe has plenty of cool upgrades that keep the Mustang's iconic heritage in mind. For example, the second air intake below the bumper recalls the GT350R, and the fiberglass hood with air scoop is Shelby-inspired, too. The side scoops on this coupe are reminiscent of the California Special. And the triple rocker stripe and trumpeted dual exhaust are classic GT touches. But while there's plenty of history in the details, the 17-inch Body Coddington wheels reminds us all this custom Mustang has a style all its own.
The tan and black interior not only continue the exterior's two-tone spirit, but also its premium feeling, too. There has been a solid investment here to make sure that everything feels fresh on the door panels, dash, carpeting, and seats. In between the front buckets is a custom center console that provides comfortable support on long trips and even has cup holders. But that's far from the only upgrade. There's an anti-theft system with power locks, and the stereo is now a modern AM/FM/CD unit with aux input. Plus, air conditioning running modern R-134a means you can stay comfortable no matter the time of year. But your favorite upgrades go to the heart of the driving experience. Your right hand is instantly attracted to the Hurst shifter, and your left one loves the grip of the smaller-diameter sports steering wheel. And that huge tach with shift light gets your senses ready to experience some serious power.
Under the hood is a Ford legend, but a younger one that you might be expecting. It's a 5.0-liter V8 block borrowed from a '93 Mustang. It looks great under the hood of this classic thanks to investments in plenty of polished components, including the Ford Racing valve covers, matching air topper, upgraded pulleys, bracer bar, and Monte Carlo bar. And more than just look great, this is a powerful setup with the performance V8 inhaling deeply through a Quick Fuel double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority from the long tube headers that feed the dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over the enhanced V8 and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the Borg Warner T5 five-speed manual transmission. But if all you see is pure power than you're not seeing the whole package. For example, this transmission not only provides upgraded performance, but also it has the right gears for highway cruising. And the large aluminum radiator with electric fan can keep everything running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. No matter if you use this for performance or commuting, you'll enjoy features like the four-wheel disc brakes, grippy modern tires, power steering, and upgraded suspension with stouter components.
