In case you haven't noticed, we're having a lot of trouble here at Streetside Classics keeping early Mustangs in stock. If you're reading this, then this high-visibility 1965 Ford Mustang coupe didn't sell immediately upon arrival, which has about a 50% chance of happening each time a new pony shows up. If there's one car you can bank on, it's the Ford Mustang.
You can't go wrong with bright colors and this one wears a coat of brilliant yellow paint, which sure gives this coupe a look that gets noticed. We like it when early Mustangs are honest, and this one doesn't need stripes, scoops, or wings to stand out, instead relying on the famous Mustang look that's one of the most beloved in the entire automotive world. Workmanship is pretty good, and starting with a good southern car never hurts, although the finish does have some signs of use and most of the trim is original. The quarters are straight and clean, the doors fit well, and details stand out against the shiny paint. Check out the sharp crease that frames the side cove, the chrome insert, and the shiny chrome bumpers that glitter. The '65s had a cross-hair emblem in the grille, so they're easy to spot and this is a real C-code car, so the '289' emblems on the front fenders were earned the right way.
The Mustang's interior looks great in any form, and the recent black Pony upholstery looks dressy when combined with that bright yellow paint. It looks like most of the interior soft parts are recent, including the seat covers, carpets, and door panels, and they all match the factory stuff exactly. The original dash carries factory instruments including the original wide speedometer with bright markings, and the knobs and handles are in good shape. The floor-mounted automatic shifter reminds you that the Mustang could be configured just about any way a customer wanted, so this one is dressed up without being over-done. There is no radio, but that means it's ripe for an upgrade and the dash hasn't been hacked up, so it will be easy to make it look right. The trunk carries a correct mat, spare tire, and a matching tire cover.
This is a real C-code car, and the 289 cubic inch V8 under the hood sticks to the original formula. That means a 2-barrel carburetor, a smooth, torquey idle, and Ford Blue paint on the engine and valve covers. The only notable deviations from stock include the open-element air cleaner and a power dual reservoir master cylinder on the firewall, which works in conjunction with front disc brakes, a nice upgrade. The C4 3-speed automatic is quick-witted enough to be a great dance partner when the road starts to twist and the door tag says it carries 2.80 gears, making this a great highway cruiser. It has also been upgraded with a mellow-sounding dual exhaust system, so it sounds like a Mustang should sound without getting too aggressive around town. Magnum 500 wheels look great on vintage Mustangs and wear recent 15-inch blackwall radials for a no-nonsense look.
So if history's any indicator, the clock is ticking on this nicely turned-out Mustang. If you're interested, you really need to call today!

After being in the collector-car business for a decade prior, Donna Robbins opened the doors to the first Streetside Classics showroom in Charlotte, NC in 2008.
