1965 Ford Mustang --
No reason that all Mustangs have to be stock, right? This neatly modified 1965 Ford Mustang coupe still has all the things we love about Ford's pony car, including V8 power, but adds an aggressive look that makes it stand out in a crowd. Not radical, but a comfortable cruiser with new A/C that will always be the center of attention. A little bit of Shelby, a little bit late-model GT, and even a little bit GM with the cowl-induction... hood, this cool Mustang definitely looks the part of an aggressive street brawler. Nothing you see is a simple off-the-shelf mod, it's all custom work that was done to enhance the conservative looks of the Mustang coupe without altering the clean lines and classic shape. And in that regard, it's a big success. You probably notice the stripes first, a pair of Shelby-style black stripes running the length of the car. They're joined by a pair of stripes on the rockers that is reminiscent of a GT350, and they're all painted on, not decals. The work was done a few years ago, so there's some use and age on it, but after the wows that everyone gives this car, they'll never notice the little flaws. The grille and bumpers (in fact, all the bright trim) was painted black and most of the emblems were removed, but it reminds us that a 1965 Mustang is still one of the best-looking pony cars ever built. The interior sticks to the Mustang formula with buckets up front and a bench in back. The upholstery is original-style and it's nice to see a center console with automatic shifter. Black carpets, a recent dash pad, and new door panels all look great and keep with the OEM feel inside. The big wood-rimmed steering wheel and factory gauges are your primary interface, although all the gauges need to be connected and there's still a little TLC required. The good news is that the under-dash A/C looks the way it might have in 1965 and it's brand new, so it is extremely effective. AN AM/FM/CD stereo slots neatly into the original radio's spot and there are Mustang-logo floor mats. There's also a neatly finished trunk with a proper plaid mat that fits well. The C-code 289 cubic inch V8 under the hood pretty much sticks to the factory recipe, so it's reliable, torquey, and fun to drive. There's still a Ford intake and 2-barrel carb up top, so it's pretty good on gas, and the factory exhaust manifolds now feed a dual exhaust system that probably frees up a few horsepower. Other upgrades include an aluminum radiator up front to keep it cool on the hottest days, power steering, and power front disc brakes. A few Ford Blue accents look good in the satin black engine bay and you can tell where the money was really spent on this Mustang. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and the original 8-inch rear end hangs out back with highway-friendly gears inside. A Flowmaster exhaust system with turn-downs just under the rear valence sounds awesome, and it has been augmented with air shocks and those handsome 17-inch wheels with a modern Torque Thrust look and staggered 215/45/17 front and 235/45/17 rear BFGoodrich radials. If you like the look, this car will make you very happy. It runs great, has plenty of power, and handles better than most early Mustangs. More proof that a modified Mustang can always be the center of attention. Call today!
