1965 Ford Mustang fastback 2+2. Factory 289-4V A code, four speed, Rally Pack, disc brake car. Numbers matching. Stunning color combination of Honey Gold paint (code C) with Ivy Gold interior (code 28). The original door tag confirms the rare factory options and color combination. Rare factory options include; A code 289-4V motor, Rally Pack, front disc brakes, and top loader four speed. This car has only 126,800 original miles. I purchased this car from the second owner who lived in Arizona. The car was originally sold new in Utah to the original owner. Being a Utah/Arizona car the he body is very dry and has never had any rust. Full bare metal window out paint job to its factory original color. Near mint original interior. A lot of time and money has gone into the preservation of this low mile survivor.
MOTOR- Approx 20k miles on rebuilt original (A-code) 289-4V motor. Headers with H pipe exhaust. New dual flow master mufflers, tail pipes, hangars, and tips. The car sounds awesome with the deep throaty tones of the exhaust. New aluminum radiator, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, Holley Street Avenger four barrel carburetor, water pump, fuel pump, gas lines, fan, chrome valve covers and air cleaner. Fresh complete tune up including, plugs, coolant flush, oil change, spark plugs, cap, rotor, wires, fuel filter, belts, radiator hoses, ect. The motor starts immediately and sounds awesome. 50 lbs. oil pressure at idle. I only use non ethanol fuel only.
TRANSMISSION & DIFFERENTIAL- Original rear end with 3.00 gear ratio. Limited slip posi. Original four speed top loader transmission. Upgraded Hurst shifter with new shift bushings. Fresh transmission and differential service. The transmission shifts crisp and precise through all gears.
ELECTRICAL- New battery, alternator, high torque starter, coil, pick up coil, voltage regulator, electronic ignition, ignition module, starter solenoid, and ignition switch. All of the electrical is in good working order. The fuel gauge, volt, temp, and oil pressure gauges, dash lights, radio, dome light, interior lights, ect, all work properly.
PAINT/BODY- According to the second owner, both he and the original owner always garaged the car. This is evident as the original interior is in pristine condition. The body and undercarriage is in exceptional preserved condition with no rust. The car received a full bare metal repaint in 2013. The car was repainted its original color of Honey Gold. The car has been driven approximately 1500 miles since its repaint. The body was completely disassembled. The doors, hood, trunk, bumpers, trim, glass, ect. were removed. New windshield. The door jambs, interior side of the doors, and trunk area were all repainted. The paint job alone cost over $12,000. New front and rear bumpers (originals included). GT fog lights were installed. All of the door, window, body and rubber seals were replaced. The undercarriage has been preserved amazingly well with the factory/dealer installed undercoating. The undercarriage, original floors, rockers, ect. are pristine as seen in the pictures.
INTERIOR- Near mint original interior (Ivy Gold). The interior is all original with the exception of the front seat upholstery. I just had the front seats professionally redone with exact reproduction seat upholstery and padding. New aluminum seat side trim and sill plates. I replaced the original seat belts with Shelby style racing lap belts (very similar to the belts in my 66 Shelby). Updated wood steering wheel, new rubber floor mats. The original rear seat upholstery, carpet, visors, dash, door panels, and headliner are in near mint condition.
SUSPENSION/WHEELS/TIRES- New rear leaf springs, upgraded performance shocks front and rear. All of the front end bushings, upper and lower ball joints were replaced. Chrome strut tower brace. Fresh alignment. Brand new BF Goodrich tires. 215/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rear. Brand new 7 and 8 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels with center caps. The car handles great, steering and suspension is tight. This car has the perfect stance.
OTHER- New gas tank, fuel sender, heater core, heater blower motor, and heater box seal. All of the door and trunk locks work.
This is a very rare optioned Mustang. Very few were ordered with these options and in this color combinations. Factory A code, disc brakes, Rally Pack, and a four speed top loader. Essentially this Mustang has the same options as a GT. I never thought I would consider selling this Mustang, however I also have a 1966 Shelby GT 350 and need the room for other cars in my collection. Many hours and thousands of dollars have gone into the preservation of this low mile survivor. Serious buyers only. This is a very reliable, solid, and good driving car. The Mustang runs, drives, handles, and looks exceptional. Clean Washington title.
. I have all of the stock parts that were removed from the car. The original parts are included with the sale of the car (radiator, 4V intake, hub caps, valve covers, air cleaner, radiator over flow bag, bumpers, front seat belts, ect.)
