Description for Ford Mustang 1965

We're all on the lookout for a 1964.5 Ford Mustang convertible. So to find one in a great correct color package and its original V8, you know this is quite a distinctive iconic you can pick up for under $30K.Ford had a huge hit on its hands with the first-generation Mustang. It was an instant icon, and so when looking for the ultimate classic, you want the earliest example you can get that has both originality and rarity. That's what makes this one so appealing. These first-batch cars built during the summer of '64 are prized possessions. Plus, with only around 28,830 convertibles produced during the short 1964.5 run, it's one of the rarest versions of the first-gen Mustang. The factory-correct Rangoon Red is such a great way to represent the first-run of the original pony car. And this one has the added distinction and sophistication of a white vinyl folding roof. Plus, it has all the right brightwork elements you love from this classic like the form-hugging bumpers, side scoops, Mustang-branded gas cap, and great styled steel wheels with the Mustang logo in the middle. Inside, the red seats, red carpets, red door panels, and red dash all coordinate so nicely with the exterior. Even the classic three-spoke sports steering wheel with the perfect thin grip is rendered in red. Plus, the premium center console has nice black and silver elements that coordinates so nicely with the dash. And while this one appears authentic, right down to the gauge cluster, there is one nice subtle upgrade. The reteosound radio retains the classic knob-style appearance of the original radio, but it hides a modern AM/FM digital tuner with an aux input for the most modern music players. Combined with Kenwood speakers, this means you get to cruise around with the top down and listen to all your favorite music.When you open the hood, the bright valve covers and air topper grab your attention, but it's what's beneath them that's really special. This is an F-code Mustang, which means it came from the factory with a 260 cubic-inch V8... and that's the block that's still under the hood today! Once the 1964.5 production switched over to 1965, this option was gone. So it's a cool piece of original history to have this still under the hood. The same goes for the generator. After all, it could easily be switched to an alternator, but it has been kept in this one all these years because Mustang people know to look for this special short-run component. And with features like the power steering, power brakes, and the three-speed automatic transmission, you can comfortably drive this benchmark classic to all the shows you want.This is a nice deal on a desirable icon that's becoming rarer every day. So hurry up before someone else realizes how good this convertible is, too. Call today!!!
