Description for Ford Mustang 1965

This 1965 Ford Mustang GT Convertible is a factory K-Code car that was restored by itsprevious Indiana-based owner six years ago. Work included new Honey Gold paint and some bodywork along with the fitment of new floors. The matching numbers VIN-stamped HiPo 289 V8 was rebuilt two years ago and is backed by a factory close-ratio 4-speed manual.I acquired the car in 2013 and have sinceinstallednew front suspension, Bilstein sport shocks, rally pac, dual redline tires and a Waldron concours exhaust system. The car has been driven less than 2k miles over the last four years and is now offered with a period-correct Tri-Power induction setup (extremely rare), a clean Indianatitle from the previous owner, and a current Vermont transferable registration in the my name.

Of the nearly 1.8 million Mustangs built from the start of production through 1967, K-Codes make up less than 1% of the total. This original Honey Gold Convertible is the only one that I can find listed in theHiPo registry. True K-codes are getting harder and harder to find.

The paint has been very well applied and is complimented by Pony wheels with color-matched accents. Car is stunning in person. Pictures do not do it justice.

Fog lights in the grill and dual exhaust tips distinguish the GT model (this car is a true GT). The power convertible top is well fitted and featuresa clear rear window as seen above.

The restored interior is fitted with several upgrades, including a new Rally Pac gauge cluster (Not seen in this picture), wood rimmed wheel, and black vinyl Pony seats. All of the gauges work as they should and the car has NOT been modified with an aftermarket radio.

The trunk is fitted with a correct patterned liner, and similar material was used for the spare tire cover and tool kit bag.

The original matching numbers 289 cubic inch HiPo V8 was rebuilt less than two years ago and is set up to run fantastic on 93/91 octane pump gas. The exhaust is a new Waldron Arvinode Concours system and front disc brakes are fitted. The suspension has been upgraded with Bilstein Sport Shocks and complete new front suspension from Scott Drake. The engine bay is nicely detailed and the engine is fitted with finned aluminum valve covers. Car also comes with correct chrome valve covers.

The period-correct Buddy Bar Tri-Power induction setup is included with the sale. The manifold is fitted with three matching Holley carburetors (66 date coded) and a correct air cleaner. This is a period correct an extremely rare unit.

The rear end is a correct Ford 9″ with 3.50:1 rear gears. The underside is nicely detailed, with crisp looking black paint on the floors and structural members.

The chassis tag is attached, and breaks down as follows: Convertible, standard interior (76A), Honey Gold Metallic paint (C), black crinkle vinyl interior (26), produced July 15, 1965 (15U), DSOCincinnati region (31), 3.50:1 axle ratio (5), 4-speed manual gearbox (5). The Warranty number translates as model year 1965 (5), Dearborn plant (F), convertible body (08), 289 4v HiPo engine (K), unit 789709.

Special notes - The car has brand new BF Goodrich dual red line tires. Any pictures with BF Goodrich T/A's are the old tires. Also, pictures of car on the lift show the old exhaust system. I apologize in advance for the mix of old and new images. Any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask. This is not a perfect Concours correct Mustang with every single part date matched and coded correct but it is a matching numbers engine to chasis Ultra Rare K-code Mustang and a very well restored one at that. Its a very special Mustang that would fit in any high-end collection. Lastly, you will not find a better running and driving Mustang anywhere. This car runs like it was built yesterday.
