800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Racing stripes and a hot 289 V8 make this 1965 Ford Mustang a cool classic And the nicely detailed style delivers a first-year pony car with quality and distinction.
White always looks good on a Mustang because it reminds us of a Shelby... especially when it also has racing stripes. Of course, this is its own unique piece with aggressive red that fully goes over the top of the car. And this one also wants to impress with its brightwork. The bumpers look brand new, the stainless trim looks excellent, and even the grille looks crisp and clean. Plus, the added polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add to both the shine and the sporty prowess. The overall appearance is a straight, clean, and bright coupe that was made to be driven.
Those racing stripes not only look distinctive on the outside, but they're also a preview of the full red interior. The carpeting, dash pad, and door panels have the quality look of a more recent investment. There are even nice details, like the working courtesy lights. And of course, everyone likes the look of a crisp "pony" package premium interior. There's also room for well-integrated upgrades. This includes a retrosound AM/FM digital tune for better driving music. And there's both a wood-rimmed steering wheel and a column-mounted tach for a better driver's experience.
Under the hood is Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8. It has a bit of classic style with the golden valve covers and the air grabber w/callout. But it doesn't take much time before you spot that this is an upgraded powerhouse. It has been enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand Street Warrior intake, and long tube headers feeding into the dual exhaust. There are also good new supporting components, including the distributor, plugs, wires, and aluminum radiator. It fires up eagerly as a good driver's coupe should. This is the kind of classic that likes you to feel the road, but there are also the right cruiser features like a three-speed automatic transmission and the grip of wide modern tires.
This is the first-year pony car with added distinction and power. It makes for a quality cruiser at quite a nice price. Call now!
