This 1965 Ford Mustang fastback is a true vintage machine that highlights what you love about the first-year pony car. It's a desirable 2+2 style that has a cool color combo, vintage features, and an overall impression that it wants to turn back the clock.
A red Mustang is always going to be rolling nostalgia, but this one does it a bit better. While this is a true fastback, it also has a different kind of style than we often don't see. No one has tried to make it into a GT350 or .....
Eleanor clone. There's nothing wrong with those, but we also like the vintage honesty here. The radio-style wheel cover, single tailpipe, and clean lines are more about what pleasant people purchased when they went down to their local Ford dealer in 1965 to join the Mustang herd. And the bright chrome, nice gloss, clean glass, good gaps, and complete trim all have that kind of look like when this car was king of the neighborhood for those first few months when it was brand new.
Inside is a full red interior, and the trim tag tells us this was born with a full red package inside and out. So it's hard not to get excited about a Mustang you can say is a full red-blooded American. Plush carpeting, clean upholstery, good door panels, and a smooth dash all make this coupe inviting. The later restoration investment seems to focus on keeping this looking stock. That means terrific details like the correct front seatbelts, the working rear courtesy lights, pony logo floor mats, and a proper fold-flat rear seat. Even the AM radio is working in this time capsule-style fastback.
Under the hood is the correct T-code 200 cubic-inch inline-six. It is impressively detailed with the blue block, classic battery topper, and all those correct decals. Plus, it shows the right maintenance with newer pieces like the alternator, hoses, wires, and distributor cap. So it makes for a respected and strong-running car. So while you might be thinking about all the added power V8 that fits so well in this engine bay, we really appreciate the impressively stock presentation here. This is the kind of classic that wants you to feel the road, but it also has modern touring tires and a smooth-shifting three-speed manual transmission to ensure it's also a confident driver.
Complete with the owner's manual, we love how this rare first-year fastback retains the kind of honest and clan style that showcases why all of America really fell in love with the Mustang. So don't miss this icon, call today!
