Description for Ford Mustang 1965

We're all on the lookout for a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback because these are the ideal icon of classic American speed. It only gets better on an example that was restored less than 1,700 miles ago to deliver a slick and seriously speedy pony. So dig into the details on all the upgrades, including the six-speed transmission and performance-built 393 V8.
Crisp lines, great detailing, and sporty sheetmetal make this one timeless. The Patriot Blue is close cousin to 1965's Caspian Blue, and it has the sleek clearcoat look of quality. It delivers a first impression that's both sleek and sophisticated, and that's exactly what you want on upgraded machine like this. The paint is great for highlighting the fastback's dramatic long hood/short deck design. When they invested in the paint and body, they also made sure that the brightwork had extra shine to go with the glossy finish. Plus, these always had the best profiles with the race-ready rear window slats. The full white stripe package on the rockers and running over the top add to this competition attitude. And it's hard to miss some of the very sporty upgrades. The fog lights in the grille and Mag-style wheels are the kind of thing you'd expect on a Mustang GT back in the day. And the huge power bulge of the cowl hood also tells everyone that this is far more than just a sharply restored fastback.
The interior continues the exterior's blue and white color theme, and so it's quite striking from the moment you open the door. There are some nice vintage elements, including the fold-down rear seat, but what will really impress you are all the well-integrated upgrades. For example, the front bucket seats are high-back units borrowed from a much younger generation Mustang, but they have been recovered to blend in here nicely. And beneath the new carpeting is proper Dynamat insulation. The stereo has a retro knob-style look, but it's a modern AM/FM digital tuner featuring Bluetooth and a USB input. This has an awesome driver's setup with a bright Pro 5.0 shifter, wood-rimmed Lecarra sports steering wheel, and a full AutoMeter Phantom gauge package with large speedo and tach.
When you pop the hood, the tidy setup and fortified components instantly signal upgraded power. The consignor states this is a 351 cubic-inch V8 stroked to 393ci total that was professionally balanced. More than just monster displacement, this has the right go-fast goodies like Edelbrock aluminum heads, Comp Cams 270 hydraulic camshaft, Cloyes True Roller dual timing chain, Magnum roller rocker arms, ATI harmonic balancer, Edelbrock Performer RPM air gap intake, and topped with a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor. It even has the right supporting components, like a Holley fuel pump, MSD ignition, and a Griffin four-core aluminum radiator w/electric fan. You have full control over this big power motor better than anyone else did in '65 thanks to the upgrade to a T56 six-speed manual transmission. This has been reinforced with a McLeod aluminum flywheel, twin disc clutch, and pressure plate. This feeds a custom DSS driveshaft on its way to the Detroit Locker rear end. The undercarriage photos show fresh components, boxed frame connectors, traction bars, adjustable shocks, and front disc brakes. So this is an awesome all-around driving package.
Here's a rare and speedy fastback that has the enhanced V8 to back up its enhanced appearance. A package like this will always be in short supply and high demand, so you better hurry if you want to make it yours. Call today!!!
