The Ford Mustang is an American automobile manufactured by Ford. It was originally based on the platform of the second generation North American Ford Falcon, a compact car. The original 1962 Ford Mustang I two-seater concept car had evolved into the 1963 Mustang II four-seater concept car which Ford used to pretest how the public would take interest in the first production Mustang. The 1963 Mustang II concept car was designed with a variation of the production model's front and rear ends with a roof that was 2.7 inches shorter. Introduced early on April 17, 1964, (16 days after the Plymouth Barracuda) and thus dubbed as a "1964½" by Mustang fans, the 1965 Mustang was the automaker's most successful launch since the Model A. The Mustang has undergone several transformations to its current sixth generation. The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the pony car. The Mustang’s styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of the competition. It was initially introduced as a hardtop and convertible with the fastback version put on sale in August 1964. At the time of its introduction, the Mustang, sharing its underpinnings with the Falcon, was slotted into a compact car segment.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this one of a kind extremely well documented 1965 Ford Mustang. The body has the original quarters, hood, and fenders, deck lid, and splash pads with a new aftermarket rear bumper, signal markers, and new windshield as well as a Monte Carlo bar and export brace. The paint in the famous Cascade Green with a completely rebuilt and recovered manual black vinyl top, and looks incredible even better in person. The interior has beautiful Palomino ’69 Cougar seats matched to the interior with under dash aftermarket oil, water, and volt gauges as well as front and rear seat belts with shoulder harnesses and a 6-point NHRA padded roll bar which adds safety as well as rigidity to the Mustang. The 302ci V8 has had a few upgrades done to it including a NASCAR mechanical fuel pump, Edelbrock heads, ported with roller rockers, a mild hydraulic cam, forged pistons with steel rods, and a 3-speed automatic C4 transmission all done at trusted shops in the Metro Detroit shops. There are pictures as well as a ton of receipts that follow through the restoration, that document it fully.
