1965 Mustang GT

History Overview:

Mustang was the greatest single automotive success of the ‘60’s and raised Ford’s volume by well over half a million cars. This set an all time record for the first year’s sales of any new model from 1965 through 1968. Mustang came in three basic forms: hardtop sedan, a convertible and a semi-fastback coupe. The crisp notchback hardtop like this car was unquestionably the sales leader. Part of Mustang’s appeal lay in its myriad of options.  For $ 170.00 the GT package offered an assortment of goodies, including front disc brakes, a full-grade instrument panel and special badges.  A variety of interiors were available along with accent stripes and special moldings for the exterior.
The first Mustang engines were the 170 CID Falcon six-cylinder and the 260 CDI small block V-8.  Later a 200 CID engine replaced the six and the V-8 was bored out to 289 CID.
The previous owner said this is a California car he has owned for 25 years.  A rotisserie restoration was completed in August 2006.
