Description for Ford Mustang 1965
Red with white is already a great combination on any convertible, so when you get it on an iconic 1965 Ford Mustang, it's an irresistible find. We probably don't even have to mention the 375 hp V8 or its movie connection, right?You can't argue with the image of fun that this bright red Mustang projects, and it's not an illusion. This neat ragtop wins friends everywhere it goes simply because everyone knows it's impossible to not have fun behind the wheel of a Mustang convertible. It's in exactly the right condition for enjoying it on the road. After all, a sunshine friendly droptop needs the luster that comes from a professional application of modern paint. Fit and finish are good with the correct 289 and Mustang badging on the front fenders; nicely fitting shiny chrome bumpers; and everyone loves the iconic steel wheel with a bold blue Mustang center cap.Underneath the white snug-fitting power folding roof is matching white seating. So whether you have the top up or down, you get drive around featuring this unbeatable color combo. Of course, we're pretty sure you want to go topless to showcase this premium "Pony" package interior. Everything looks great in complementing dual colors with red carpets, white on the seats and door panels, and then the two schemes coming together on the dashboard. There's a great center console with wood paneling that matches the steering wheel, glovebox, and gauge panel for a premium and uniform touch. And speaking of the gauges, you get the upgrade to the GT-specific five-round readout panel. The whole interior is a true and terrific original-style presentation.Under the hood is one heck of an upgrade. The engine bay looks nice with its shiny Shelby-style bracer bar and Cobra valve covers on the 289 cubic-inch motor. But more than just a performance appearance, there was a serious investment into making this a hot V8. Around 15,000 miles ago it was completely rebuilt by a performance shop specializing in NASCAR motors. They went to work giving the motor a bored .30 kit, ported and polished sodium valves, 5 angle valve job, 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and raised the compression to 11.5:1. The result is 375 horsepower at 5,000 RPM. Oh yeah, this is one fast pony, and everyone knows it thanks to the growl of the header-fed FlowMaster dual exhaust. Plus, all of this performs fine on everyday roads thanks to reliable support components like the Petronix electrics and Griffin aluminum radiator. And you'll have no trouble commanding this wild pony thanks to features like the stout C4 three-speed automatic transmission and the grip of modern Bridgestone tires.Complete with documents like build receipts, maintenance records, and the owner's manual, this is a beautiful pony on the outside with the heart of a true stallion. Did we also mention the car was in film Children of the Corn II? Yes, this is truly unique and fun icon, and once it's gone, you'll likely never find one as cool again. Call now!!
