The holy grail of 1965 Mustangs. You see all these great features: K- code Hi Po motor, 4-speed, GT, Caspian blue and a blue and white pony interior. Amazingly enough this car was born this way, documented with 2 build sheets!! Less then 10 miles since a total nut and bolt rotisserie restoration. The owner is a Mustang collector. He bought this car in it's original unrestored condition. It is the real deal with the original drive line it was born with, correct down to the rally pack on the column. He had it restored by the experts including Mustang Restorations.
EXTERIOR: Absolutely stunning. I'm gonna say it is better than it was new. The body panels fit perfectly well. Every panel is square and flush, even around the headlight bezels to the hood. I've never seen one fit this good. It is absolutely straight from every angle. The Caspian blue is drop dead gorgeous. The metal flake was laid out evenly and the paint is polished out like glass. It looks like you could dive right into it. Every single piece of exterior trim and chrome has been replaced. Upfront has a sparkling pony grill with the GT lights. New 289 high-performance emblems on the fenders. New door handles, stainless moldings, mirrors, bumpers etc. All of the glass has been replaced, every gasket and rubber seal has been replaced. The door jambs are show quality- painted beautifully, all the hardware, nuts, bolts, latches, wetherstrips are new. It sits on a set of upgraded radial dual stripe redline BFG tires with new GT wheels.
INTERIOR: Just as amazing as the outside. Two tone blue and white pony deluxe interior is 100% restored. The seats are rebuilt with new cushions and upholstery. It has sport fold down seat in back. New deluxe door panels with knife handle door openers. The dash area is pristine. The lenses, bezels, trim, dash pad all look new. The deluxe steering wheel and rally pack tachometer and clock are both pristine. Overhead is a white headliner and visors that are new. On the floor is new carpet, matching embroidered floor mats and correct 4-speed shifter. The interior lights work.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: You'll certainly get a reaction out of anyone that sees this engine compartment. It is beautifully detailed. The legendary K code 289-271 hp motor was rebuilt to factory Hi Po specs. Original motor with proper dates and casting codes on all major components. The correct grind cam and solid lifters came from Hollman Moody. It is the correct motor, casting codes and dates are near the oil pan. Correct distributor, the correct carb is completely restored (there is a Holley on the car now, the owner didn't want the restored carb going bad while the car wasn't being used). All the metal is pristine with glossy finishes. New cadmium plated bolts. The paint okay stamps and stickers are all in place. It has reproduction hoses and clamps. It's an actual Autolite reproduction battery, bolted down properly. The washer bag is hooked up to a new washer pump and the squirters. It has correct canister fuel filter and pump, correct master cylinder with clip on cap. Correct quick ratio steering box. This is a high revving motor, there is a rev limiter installed, set at 4,500 RPM until the motor is broken in.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Meticulously restored. All the metal looks pristine, painted glossy blue. New rubber mat, decals and weather strip. Original GT rim with a new matching redline tire for a spare. It also has jack assembly.
UNDERSIDE: The correct Top Loader 4-speed with original tag was completely rebuilt by Top Loader expert David Kee. The original rear end with 3.50 gears and original tag was rebuilt. It has the heavy duty GT suspension and it was completely rebuilt and detailed to original specs. The brake system was completely restored, it has disc in front. Correct reproduction GT dual exhaust with resonators and trumpet tips going out the valance. The fuel system was completely replaced with correct components. The bottom of the body is all clean metal painted to factory specs- primer floors with body overspray. Every part under this car was restored.
Ford does not have records on the Mustangs prior to 1967. The build sheet is the only documentation and very few Mustangs are lucky enough to have it. After the car was built they were to be thrown away. This car has 2! One was found in a door, the other behind the headliner.
If you could go back in a time machine to 1965, could you order a better one than this? If you want the ultimate this is it!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the ca
