A rust-free Mustang and my research has shown that it was delivered to Texas in 1965 and has stayed in the state for its entire life.
The car was in beautiful shape when I purchased it and over the past 5 years it has been meticulously cared for and improved, albeit it not an exact restoration.
The improvements are the things that people seem to appreciate. It was repainted in Candy Apple Red (‘66) and not the unpleasant ’65 red. The car was completely outfitted with all of the GT/pony goodies including the GT instrument panel and console with wood grain appliqué, black pony interior, front fog lights, and exterior GT nameplates. A new black roof was installed and it was converted from manual to power. The engine compartment was completely detailed to original, with a little clear coat to make it shine. The mechanical points were eliminated and replaced with an electronic ignition. One cool thing (I think) was the installation of dual exhaust with Flowmasters and dual GT trumpets showing in the rear. This change allowed the engine to finally “breathe” with a noticeable increase in get up and go, plus the mileage is now 20mpg +.
With the automatic transmission this is really a fun car to drive. But don’t be fooled by being a six cylinder, it has won a lot of car show trophies and will continue to win for you.
