<Up for sale is a 1965 Ford Mustang engine code "A" with the 289 factory V8 4B carb option. We have owned this car for over 12 years and has never seen the rain or snow while in our possession.
the information that i will provide is the best of our knowledge as we have only had the car for 12 years total so the total past is unknown.
color is black which still shines
there is a little paint peeling on the hood where the word "FORD" is mounted
there is some bubble rust on the rear fenders but nothing horrible. For the age it is pretty impressive.
the chrome has very little pitting and is original
we do know that the hood and drivers side door we replaced at one time but everything else is original
4 BRAND NEW TIRES and FULL SIZE SPARE
Brakes we also recently done as well
Red in color.
split bucket seats up front with the bench in the rear.
there are no tears in the seats and the carpeting is in great condition.
there is an aftermarket radio mounted just behind the shifter with pioneer speakers in the back because the original radio did not work.We did not want to alter the original radio or wiring so we left the original equipment in place and just wired the radio and speakers separately.
We are not sure if the TACH works as we have barely driven it over the past 12 years but we just wanted to make sure to inform you of this.
drivetrain and power train: 9/10
**NUMBERS MATCHING**BUILT OUT OF DETROIT MICHIGAN WHERE IT ALL BEGAN**
We were informed by our mechanic awhile back when we purchased it that the VIN matches the body and the engine. also known as a VIN code "A" which was one of the rarest but strongest V8 options at that time.
it is an automatic- no shifting problems or slippage. drives like a champ.
the engine fires right up and has its oil changed every year even though there are less than 100 miles a year driven on the car
the carburetor was replaced with a holley 650 double pumper.
the exhaust was swapped out with a straight pipe setup, Full 2inch stainless steel.
as stated above the brakes were done a few years ago but the car is very rarely driven so they are still like new.
**** car will come with replacement emblems for the sides and hood, NEW weather stripping for the doors, and a NEW side mirror as well****
We had it locally appraised by a mustang restoration shop and they stated that as the car stands it is worth $11-$12,000. A couple key features that make it more unique are ...
the fact that the car is an ORIGINAL BLACK EXTERIOR WITH A RED INTERIOR colored car. From the factory and this was a very unique color combo at the time.
it is a VIN CODE "A" which was one of the more powerful options of the time
by looking at the VIN as stated above, he mentioned the car is possibly one of the first 1000 made. But due to the lack of documentation on cars this old i can NOT guarantee this statement. Just what i was told by him
If you have any questions please let me know. I will fill you in as best as possible. Call to stop in and see this Mustang
