Description for Ford Mustang 1965

Few color combinations are as striking on a vintage Mustang as Raven Black over white. On offer here today is a choice example of a 1965 Mustang GT Convertible which was delivered new in just that combination. This Mustang came to me from the second owner who had held the the keys since 1970. During his adolescent years. the second owner worked as a prep boy at Bob Murphy Ford in Morton. Il. He assisted the original owner in filling out the order form for this very car. spec'ing the car perfectly with the GT package and without backup lights as he preferred the clean look of the car without them. That same prep boy. the man who would become the second owner of the car. would later learn to drive in this car as the first owner was his driving instructor. In 1970. the second owner finally purchased the car and began a 44 year stretch of ownership. The car before you is rare not only for its color combination. but also because it is a documented GT. Though many cars claim to be GTs. few cars other than Metuchen built cars have the provenance to back it up. When this car was stripped to bare metal for restoration. grease pencil markings on the front of the radiator support were revealed which clearly read “GT” along with the other option codes for the car. Pictures of this marking come with the car upon sale as does a picture of this car sitting in front of the second owner's house next to his other car (a 1967 GT500 in lime gold) in which the car is clearly in GT trim. Also with the car is the original Ford Registered Owner Identification Card. original Bob Murphy Ford key fob. and original door tag. The second owner opted to use a reproduction door tag during the restoration of the car but wisely set aside the original for safe keeping. As it sits today. the car is a beautifully restored example of a 1965 Mustang GT convertible. The body and paint were done around 2000 and show extremely well to this day. During the restoration. the car needed only a slight amount of repair which included floor pans and lower quarter panels. Otherwise. fenders. doors. hood. and truck are all original to this car. The work on the car was done well. this is not your typical bondo-filled car. The interior was also treated to a freshening with mostly all new components and the convertible top was replaced. In fact. the top has been kept up since it was installed so as to prevent wrinkling. Under the hood. you will find a clean and correct engine compartment which is detailed to a high enough standard to impress near any Mustang enthusiast. The car drives extremely well and. frankly. is the perfect car for Spring-time cruising. If you are looking for a great car for the coming Spring. you have just found it. Not only is the example offered here displayed in one of the very best color combinations. but it also has the rare distinction of being a legitimate factory GT car. This example is priced well in the marketplace and will certainly not be available for long. Please call Vernon at 913. 232. 2136 with any questions. I am available to speak with you about the car 7 days a week but please no calls after 8pm Central Time. If I miss your call I will return it promptly. Vehicle is located in Overland Park. Kansas which is a suburb of Kansas City. We encourage all interested parties to come view the car and would be happy to arrange for a showing. Our showroom is not normally open for walk ins. You will need to make an appointment with me so I know you are planning on coming in. This car is for sale locally. I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Car is sold "as is" with no warranty. Thank you all for taking the time to view this car and I look forward to answering any questions you might have on this wonderful Mustang GT!
