Description for Ford Mustang 1965

Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, n sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, n order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.

West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and beautiful example of this professionally restored original southern California 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible! Owned for over 30 years by a renown retired Los Angeles mechanic/entrepreneur who revolutionized the automatic transmission in the 1970's/80's by both creating and founding a parts company with one of the first parts catalog for this industry, renown tooling and manufacturing company and by inventing an early transmission dynamometer and new planetary gear set. He raced muscle cars at 'Willow Springs' and 'Button Willow' and this particular 1965 Mustang Convertible was his own personal creation and labor of love.
