If you are looking for a quality first-generation Mustang, this beautiful specimen might be your car. This restored 1965 C-code coupe captures all the excitement from almost 60 years ago when the Mustang forever changed the automotive landscape. It epitomizes the classic Mustang look with its timeless lines and Poppy Red paint, and offers a sporty ride with its V8 engine and modest proportions.
Built in August 1964, this particular Mustang represents the first month of production for the revised 1965 model. It was the subject of a thorough restoration and has more new parts than can possibly be listed here. The floors, frame sections, rockers, and torque boxes are all solid and free of rust problems. The body was repainted in its original Poppy Red and looks fantastic; is there a better color for a first generation Mustang? All the chrome and moldings were replaced or reconditioned, as were the lenses, emblems, and trim pieces. Note the 289 Hi-Po badges on the fenders. The classic 14” styled steel wheels wear double redline bias ply tires that look so perfect under this car.
The factory C-code 2-barrel 289 was replaced with a rebuilt 4-barrel 302. It resembles a 1965 Hi-Po engine with its black paint, chrome valve covers, and open element air cleaner, but the practicality of a distributor vacuum advance canister keeps things real. You will have to look closer to see performance parts like the aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold that has been painted black, or the Holley 4160 carburetor. The balance of the drivetrain consists of a C4 automatic transmission and 8” rear end with 2.80 gears. The brakes, steering, and suspension are all in good operating condition as well.
The car has a standard black interior that looks factory fresh. Seats, carpet, door panels, headliner, dash, instruments, switches, bezels, steering wheel, sunvisors; everything looks new. Same with the mirrors, door seals and window felts. The only change from stock is a digital AM/FM radio that fits in the original dash opening. Everything is functional as well including the the speedometer, fuel gauge, lights, turn signals, wipers, washers, horn, and heater/defroster. The trunk houses a full size spare, and check out the chrome plated scissors jack!
This Mustang presents a very appealing package. It is a gorgeous car inside and out, in turn-key condition with a V8 engine. While this classic can be appreciated by anyone, just be prepared to draw attention from all types of people wherever you go.
