The Ford Mustang is a legendary nameplate, and you'd be hard-pressed to find much to complain about with this example. This first-year 1965 Ford Mustang is both a lot of fun and highly correct, connecting the timeless Ford small-block V8 under the hood with a manual transmission. Powered by the aforementioned 289 C.I. Ford small-block V8 and breathing through a 4-barrel carburetor, this '65 Mustang isn't hurting for power in any way. Torque is put to the pavement through the use of a .....
quick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission, which is also good for plenty of smiles behind the wheel. The correct exterior "Vintage Burgundy" paint looks stunning and covers this Mustang's straight bodylines wonderfully, complimenting the shiny chrome brightwork. One look at this Mustang leaves no doubt in your mind as to why the Mustang was so successful in its day! The floors, frame, trunk and jambs are all in great shape, and each present well. Opening the twin doors reveals a correct, sweet, and refurbished black vinyl interior, complete with comfy bucket seats that are perfect for cruising. Everything's been redone, so the interior looks almost just as it did coming off the showroom floor in 1965. Options on this '65 Mustang include power steering, front disc brakes, factory gauges, an aftermarket SunPro tachometer, a vintage-style AM/FM digital radio, a heater + defroster, dual chrome mirrors, a woodgrain steering wheel, aftermarket front and rear speakers, vent windows, and a mean-sounding dual exhaust system. The car rides on a slick set of 15" American Racing wheels over B.F. Goodrich RWL tires for a classic, muscular look. And as sweet as this Mustang looks, it runs and drives down the road even better than it appears. With that 4-speed manual transmission, it's sure to put a smile on your face, and it's ready to go at the turn of a key.
