Description for Ford Mustang 1965

This is a Chameleon car on multiple levels. Depending on how you look at it, it's a Classic, or a Street rod. It's Old School, or Current Gen. The paint of course, defines the term and looks awesome. Check out the balance of respect for this original Pony car, with select upgrades that change its character. No matter how you look at it, this car is a winner. As you approach this car from a distance, or... as it drives by, the paint will be the first thing you will notice. And the second, and third. It was expertly applied and the effect as it transitions from Gold through Purple is slick and smooth. But one of the reasons it looks so good, is that it is highlighting the classic lines of a Mustang. It catches the light around the headlights and leading edge of the front fenders that are underlined by a thin chrome bumper. The hood, with leading edge scoops, hood pins, and vents, offers plenty of curves for the light to play off of. As it transitions down the side of the car it is particularly dramatic and resolves nicely as the fastback blends into the trunk. The iconic triple taillights with a Mustang gas cap fit right in and are underlined by another sharp looking bumper. Set it all on a set of chrome 18" Weld Racing wheels, and you have the perfect blend of Classic and Current. That theme continues in the interior too. Open the door and you are greeted by a classic Mustang interior that has been refurbished with new black carpet and upholstery. There are pleated door panels with splashes of chrome and the new vinyl on the seats looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. A deep dish, three spoke steering wheel with a chrome Mustang center sits in front of a black dash with fine chrome piping outlining the gauges. But then we get to a few updates. There is tachometer mounted on one side of the steering column with a clock on the other, also known in the early Mustang world as a "Rally Pac." A stock looking Mustang radio is really a face plate for a Custom Autosound head unit, and the stock temperature controls for the ventilation system also control the Vintage Air A/C with under dash vents. Mounted on the floor is a shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission which hints at the performance orientation of this car. Pop the hood and some of that performance will be on display. More Classic and Current here. This car was delivered with a 289 4-barrel from the factory. Lately it has been updated a bit and there are tons of receipts on the engine build, so ask your salesperson about them. It now sports a K&N air filter with a Holley 4-barrel carb handling the fuel mixing duties. An Edelbrock Performer RPM intake gets the mixture to trick heads that breath much better than the original units and Magnaflow mufflers make it sound great. MSD ignition components assure good spark and new plugs, cap, and wires get the job done from there. The chassis and suspension also received some upgrades with cross member bracing, frame rail connectors, and with a couple of beefy sway bars added to keep it cornering flat. New bushings and heavy-duty shocks help it handle the extra cornering loads with grace and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes provide the stopping power needed to haul it back down from speed. No matter how you look at it, this car is a winner. Come on down, check it out, and you might decide to look at it as yours.
