Description for Ford Mustang 1965

I purchased this Mustang around 1999 and it literally came out of a barn. The old man who owned it along with many other old cars had died and the estate was selling everything. The Mustang had been in storage since the early 1970's. Although the car was in very good condition, it was dis-assembled in preparation for paint. I don't know how long it was in this condition. It still had bias tires, which I still have, on the original styled steel rims. When I got the car home, I found that it was in excellent condition. I did replace some parts like the carpet, tires, and some of the small chrome pieces. The car started right up but needed the original carb rebuilt. I replaced the gas tank and it has been a great runner ever since. The car was painted shortly after I got it and had no rust. I did have the right rear quarter replaced at that time with one off a doner car. The quarter had been damaged at some point and the body man felt that replacing it was the best option. It was painted in its original Prairie Bronze. In the years since I have replaced the rims with a wider version although I have the originals as well. Last year I replaced the door panels because the handle part on the drivers side was slightly frayed. I have the originals.I recently had the carb rebuilt again. the car had 29,000 miles on it when I purchased it and has 31,423. I believe this mileage to be original to the car but have nothing to document this. The seat covers and headliner are original. I replaced the valve covers with aftermarket gold ones because the original owner had painted the originals blue. You can see the gold paint on the originals. I will include the originals as well as any other parts I have with the sale of this car. The car is missing a piece of trim that goes around the back seat on the passenger side but other than that, I believe everything is all there.
This car came with the original GT package with the fog lights, duel exhaust, and other GT options. Ithas power steering and disc brakes in the front. It has the gauge package but the clock is not working. It has the fold down rear seat. Basically it has every option that was offered with an A code fastback in 1965. Everything is original on this car and it runs fantastic.
Rarely does something this original and in this kind of condition become available. Don't let this car pass you by.
