For sale is a very nice 1965 Ford Mustang in Arctic White exterior with black interior.
The car was originally procured in San Jose, California with a DSO of Seattle, Washington. It lived most of its life on the pacific north west.
It starts up easily cold or hot and cruises down the road quietly with ease.
Suspension, steering box, brakes are in good working order. It drives the way most Mustangs are supposed to. Light, nimble.
Interior has also been restored including a new carpet, headliner, door panels, seat upholstery (front and back), rubber Pony logo trunk mats, dash pad, instrument cluster. It also has new rubbers all the way around including a new windshield, windshield wipers. The exterior chrome trim is in good shape and has no damage apart from a few small scratches.
There has been some weld work done on the chassis, however the work was well done (see undercarriage photos). The paint job is very good. An easy 9.5/10.
History : The previous owner had purchased the car in the mid early 90s from a newspaper ad which read simply ’65 Mustang $3000 456-7239 (see photo included in the gallery). He began to restore the car in 1997 by rebuilding the original 2 barrel carburetor (C6DF-F, receipt copy included in gallery). Shortly there after the engine was completely rebuilt (receipt copy including in gallery) to the tune of 2143.42. The engine build included a competition cam, .30 over piston set (turning the engine from a 289 to 302) with stock crank, rod specs. Engine build specific outlined in the paperwork included with the car. In 2001 the transmissions was slipping and was also overhauled (receipt included in gallery) including rebuilsing the torque convertor. The restoration continued up until mid 2019 where the car received an excellent paint job with laser straight body work, good panel fitment followed by overhauling the rear differential. The current mileage on the odometer is 11,6XX which, according to the receipts puts the engine mileage at about 15,000-20,000 mile range.
This car has been mechanically, and aesthetically restored with the restoration process taking almost 20 years. Its ready for the new owner to enjoy her and perhaps add his personal touch.
