The first-year fastback pony car is one the rarest and most desirable versions out there, and this 1965 Ford Mustang 2+2 is a factory A-code car coming off of long-term ownership. So you'll love everything from the shining paint to the vintage details that make this such a standout icon.
The trim tag tells us this was born a code-M Wimbledon White coupe. The paint was refreshed later in life, and it was a solid investment. That means added luster from a modern clearcoat and the smooth look of a professional hand applying it. In fact, this is a well-presented detailed package. The doors line up nicely, the weather-stripping is pliable, the glass is clean/clear, and the bumpers and all other brightwork shine beautifully. It shows the kind of carefully kept attitude you expect on a car that has had the same owner for over 35 years. We wouldn't suggest it needs anything because it's pretty darn good looking right now... But there are plenty of us who also look at this and realize it's only a vinyl stripe package away from being a cool GT350 tribute. And the blue will even go with the inserts in the Western-style turbine wheels.
The other thing the hint of blue goes with is the factory-correct blue interior. The carpeting, upholstery, dash pad, and other fundamentals all show good quality from the right investment and care. You even have cool details, including the classic floor mats with pony emblem and working courtesy lights on the pillars that give this the cool fastback style. And yes, the rear seat still folds flat. While you'll love the classic style, this one is also meant to be a good cruiser for today. For example, the factory center console now also has a removable one on top of it that has an armrest and cup holders. And the radio is a Kenwood AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette for better driving music. Plus, we love the SW gauges under the dash just as much for their added info as their period-correct style.
The A-code cars added more power to Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8, and this one takes that spirit up a notch. It's a clean-looking motor with the classic golden valve covers and matching big air grabber. But beneath the stock style is a motor that was rebuilt later in life (around 2000) and now inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It has a solid feeling out on the road that tells you this one loves to go for a drive. And there's even power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission for cruising ease.
There has been the right care and investments over the decades that have gone into this first-year fastback. It makes for a standout classic that's ready to hit the road right now. Call today!!!
