Hard to believe the 1965 Mustang is creeping up on 60 years old, and they are as popular as ever!
Finding an original car is becoming more difficult every day as we are plied with resto-mods, pro-touring, and over the top restorations, and in constant pursuit of trying to make our collectable vehicles, perform, and drive like today's high performance offerings...I get it! Nothing like hopping in a classic car, turning the key and having more horsepower on tap than the car could have ever imagined when it rolled out of the factory. All great stuff! I’m with you. But, when you have a classic car in its original configuration, that hasn’t been torn up, down, or otherwise modified, you’ll discover that there are some pretty sweet driving, great sounding, and well performing classic cars out there.
Case in point, this 2-owner 1965 Mustang coupe is one of the nicest driving little coupes I’ve ever had. Nicely appointed with it’s “Pony” interior, A/C, front disc brakes, and mellow sounding dual exhaust, you’ll want to be driving this Mustang all the time!
The rebuilt 289 is really just the right size engine for these cars, and as we all know, bucket seats, and floor shifters just lend to the original sportiness of the Mustang. The Mustang has lived consistently through the years, changing with the times, and keeping it’s pedigree in tact today, respectfully to the likes of this very body style.
Doesn’t matter who you are, if you’re a classic car enthusiast or not, whether your beholden to a particular brand ,or you like all cars, old and new. You know what this car is!! It’s one of the icons in our hobby. There’s classic cars that are very unique, classic cars that only cater to a few enthusiasts, classic cars that are so rare, and or desirable that they are held in extremely high regard, and then there are a few classic cars that you just can’t go wrong with no matter what, and that’s a first generation Mustang! A true icon for the ages.
