DESCRIPTION

This is a powerful, cool, and significant classic all in one package. It's a restored 1965 Ford Mustang K-Code fastback that was said to have been turned into a drag racer back in the day. And today, it keeps that legacy going with a correct HiPo V8 that has a direct connection to Holman Moody.



First year Mustangs always have our attention, but if you want to get people talking even within the Mustang community, this is the car for that. It's a real-deal high-performance K-code fastback. They are a true rarity, and so they are always in-demand. That's why this one was given a solid restoration investment, and the consignor states it has been driven less than 100 miles since completion. It's a coupe with good fundamentals including straight body panels, shining brightwork, and a quality respray of the correct Rangoon Red. The overall impression tells you that this is one detail job away from the center spot of a show field, but really, it's currently presented correctly as a car that wants to be driven. It's unmistakably something quite speedy with the Thunderbolt-style teardrop power dome in the hood. And those black steel wheels subtly draw attention to the small front tire drag racing setup.



The full red interior shows more of the restoration's investment in quality. The door panels, carpeting, headliner, dash, and upholstery all have a fresh and inviting feeling. It was a detail-oriented build, right down to the working courtesy lights. Of course, this is also built to be a competition driver. So you have front bucket seats, racing-style lap belts, a Hurst floor shifter, and provisions for a Rally Pac (it's present but it will need servicing.) And while most of the superfluous weight was left out of this race-style coupe, there is one addition that adds zero bulk, but a ton of prestige. Gale Halderman, the Mustang's first designer, signed the glovebox lid of this first-year fastback.



The engine bay has dark inner walls to really funnel your attention to the V8 heart in the middle. K-Code Mustangs are special because they came with Ford's performance-built High Performance (HiPo) 289 cubic-inch V8. Not only do you have a correct 1965 K-Code replacement block, but also this was built by a true master: Al Moody of Holman Moody. The famous race shop never messed around when it came to serious performance, and that's why this motor starts with being bored out to 331ci total. It also has a Holley 715 CFM LeMans four-barrel carburetor, Shelby ram box intake, "LeMans grind" performance cam, new rods, new pistons, and reworked heads. The big air grabber reaches into the domed hood to inhale fresh oxygen, and this one exhales with authority out of a correct Arvinode-style dual exhaust. It's a big power setup, and you have complete control thanks to the toploader four-speed that feeds the stout 9-inch rear end. Traction bars and wide drag radials keep the power on the pavement, and subframe connectors and front disc brakes keep everything feeling confident.



This is the restored real-deal HiPo K-Code fastback that has been blessed by the best to be a terrific quarter-mile king. Oh yeah, you know this one you need in your collection. Call today!!!
