Description of 1965 Ford Mustang

Here's a stellar nut-n-bolt restoration of an ultra-desirable first-year 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. So as you look over all the details strong V8, overdrive transmission, tasteful upgrades you'll soon know what everyone else does, this is one superior 'Stang.
Someone really enjoyed making the right investments in this convertible's appearance, and it's you who can benefit. The original Poppy Red has been upgraded to Red Fire Pearl Metallic borrowed from the Lincoln color palette. And this upper-class upgrade is exactly how you should view this droptop. The full book that comes with the sale documents how this was taken down to bare metal and was carefully restored. So now you have a shine that's miles-deep, and the sheetmetal that showcases creases that other people didn't even know existed on these first-year pony cars. And all the details are great, too. The bumpers are mirror-like to shine as bright as the paint; all the glass is clean and clear; and the upgrade to Mag wheels is a fine way to be distinctive while still appreciating Mustang heritage. So this is not only the one you proudly take to car shows, but don't be surprised when you've got to place a few awards in its correctly-matted trunk.
While the snug fit of the black convertible top gives this one a classy appearance, we like it even better when it's neatly folded. After all, you still get the great appearance of the black from the interior and boot covers, and now you also get to showcase the premium "pony" package. But this is a looker for more than just the horses embossed in the seatbacks. There was plenty left in the restoration budget so that the carpeting, door panels, and the special seats all feel fresh and premium. And speaking of premium, you've got a woodgrain steering wheel that nicely coordinates with the applique on the dash. And as you look over this whole dashboard, you'll see some terrific upgrades, like the GT-style round gauges panel. Plus, there's a retro style radio that features an AM/FM digital tuner and an input for modern music players after all, there's nothing better than having your favorite music while enjoying top-down motoring.
This was born a six-cylinder car, but something this cool deserves extra power. That's why it now has Ford's robust and iconic 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It looks great with the bright valve covers and matching air topper. Plus, the freshness of the components lets you know the restoration budgets was invested in there, too. It has great upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, extra bracing, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. And don't forget to check out the undercarriage where the clean presentation, fresh bushings, newer dual exhaust, and other components let you know how thorough the work was on this convertible. So if this total package seems like the ideal classic for cruising, then you'll be excited about great driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with plenty of build receipts and the full photobook on the restoration, you're looking at a stellar Mustang that has been given all the right investments to reach the upper-echelon. So if you're ready for a superior turn-key icon, call today!
