DESCRIPTION

You already know we love early Mustangs around here, but this 1965 Mustang GT coupe hits the sweet spot. Dressed in up proper GT regalia with a great color combination, it's a great balance of nostalgia, performance and style, with a side helping of rarity to go with it.

This is a real-deal GT and it's wearing relatively rare code 5 Twilight Turquoise, which is its original color. In truth, it's hard to make an old Mustang look bad, and the brightly colored paint dresses up the formal coupe bodywork and makes it look modern and grown-up, not like a boy-racer. Thankfully it still carries original-style bodywork, which means no scoops, spoilers, or other add-ons to spoil the fun, and the white stripes along the rockers are proper GT pieces, so they look like they belong. Fit and finish are good for a car that's surely going to see a lot of time on the road, but it's older paint so it's not going to win any trophies; just get in and drive! GT fog lamps and a correct rear valence with the exhaust trumpets poking through are correct for a GT model, and there are proper 'GT' and '289' badges in the right places. Bright chrome bumpers look to be in very good shape, and I particularly like how the bright red taillights show up so vividly against the turquoise paint.

The two-tone code 67 Light Aqua and White bucket seat interior is just as stylish as the bodywork. Deluxe "Pony" bucket seats lend it a sporty look, and while this car originally sported a 3-speed manual, you'll note that there are four gears showing on that Hurst shifter (the original 3-speed comes with the car as well). Original carpets and door panels might be showing their age but that's not a big deal, and the 5-gauge instrument cluster is another GT-only part (in 1965 anyway) that is more evidence that this car is what it appears to be. A factory AM radio is still in the center of the dash, but it's probably due for an upgrade if you're going to drive this one. Things like the dash pad, headliner, and kick panels are also good shape and in back, the trunk is finished with a plaid mat with a full-sized spare and matching cover.

Ford's 289 cubic inch V8 is a Mustang tradition, providing plenty of punch and a fantastic exhaust note that only a small block can deliver. As a GT, this one is an A-code, which means a 4-barrel carburetor and 225 horsepower. Thanks to an upgraded Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Mallory ignition system, it has instantaneous throttle response, and with a Cobra dress-up kit, you'll be anxious to open the hood every chance you get. The engine is painted Ford Blue, which is correct for late 1965, and it looks like there's a fresh radiator up front and a newer aluminum water pump. The 4-speed manual transmission snaps through the gears without stuttering and feeds the original rear end, which still carries highway-friendly 3.00 gears. A correct dual exhaust system sounds suitably mellow and recent KYB shocks tame the handling. You'll notice it comes with front disc brakes as well, a first for Ford this year and only available on the GT's and GT350s. Factory styled steel wheels are a perfect period look and carry 195/75/14 whitewall radials for a traditional '60s look.

If you're looking to simply have some fun in an old Mustang, this one has a great pedigree and a ton of potential, delivering everything the Mustang is famous for. Call today!
