1965 Mustang GT “K” Code *

Model Year History Overview:

The Ford Mustang was the greatest single automotive success of the 60’s.  It raised Ford sales volume by well over half a million cars, and set an all-time record for first year sales of any new model.  This remarkable accomplishment can be credited to Lee A. Iacocca, the engineer turned salesman, who worked his way from an obscure sales position to vice president/general manager of Ford Division in five years.  Iacocca’s idea was a new personal car, a young person’s car, inexpensive to build, yet peppy and sporty-looking. The very first Mustang came in 1964 ½.

This Mustang GT convertible “K” code model is very rare.  It was the first “Muscle Car” Ford built with the small Mustang body.  Buyers of the GT Equipment Package could add the K-code to their order for an additional $276 in 1965. The cost to add this engine to new Mustangs without the GT package was $328. Only 270 Convertibles were built.

Black, black red color combination stands tall. Paint is excellent and shows 9 on a 10 scale.  This car runs on factory rally wheels with new redline tires.  Car has full spare and jack in trunk, a red russet undercarriage.  Engine is powered by a 289 V-8 solid lifter 271 hp correct & true K code with dual exhaust.

  • “K” Code refers to the letter “K” in fifth position of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to identify engine size.
