If you're in search of an early Mustang convertible, and we know there are a lot of choices out there, you might want to consider this pretty bright yellow 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. It's got all the features you want (power top, power steering, A/C, and a 289) plus a color combination that looks great and stands out in a crowd.
Quite honestly, there's nobody out there who doesn't like the early Mustangs. Even Camaro guys have to admit that they're neat little cars and whenever you're driving one, well, life seems a little brighter. That's why we like this one so much, because the bright yellow paint is impossible not to love (it was originally code R Ivy Green). It embodies the spirit of the Mustang, playful and fun, without taking itself too seriously. Fortunately, the bodywork is quite good underneath and it appears to have lived its entire life down south, so it's tidy underneath. Mustang convertibles can sometimes be tricky to restore with their unit-body structures, but this one fits together quite nicely and with a relatively recent repaint, it shines up well. Is it perfect? No, of course not. But it does have a wonderfully casual look that's a big part of its appeal.
The black Pony interior contrasts brilliantly with the yellow bodywork and remains as inviting as ever. Given that it was originally equipped with a standard interior, almost everything is new and today it shows only very minor signs of use that are more about character than show-worthiness. The GT-style dashboard covers the vitals and a correct early-style Rally-Pac has been fitted to the steering column. The shifter for the 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission sits proudly on the transmission tunnel, sans console, and there's a period aftermarket A/C system hanging under the dash (needs to be serviced). The woodgrained finish on the dash is in remarkably good condition given the age of the car and the only major modification inside might be the newer AM/FM/cassette radio in the center of the dash. Other neat features include a aftermarket cruise control and a white power convertible top that's in very good condition and offers a matching boot for when it's stowed. The trunk is correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat and spare tire cover so it looks right.
There's no way to determine if an early Mustang like this is "matching-numbers" in the technical sense, but the C-code 289 currently living under the hood looks quite correct and brightly detailed. The C-code cars had 2-barrel carburetors, but this one now carries a fresh 4-barrel, perhaps in the quest for more horsepower, which is never a bad idea. It's quite neatly done, with finned Edelbrock dress-up parts and chrome Monte Carlo bar atop a correct black engine block. It starts easily and feels smooth and torquey, so this Mustang is a great travelling partner no matter where you're going. Power steering is a rather important option, even on a lightweight Mustang, and the automatic transmission teams up with 2.80 gears to make it an awesome highway cruiser. A proper dual exhaust system has a nice V8 burble to it and thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate, the undercarriage is in very good original condition. Handsome styled steel wheels with 205/70/14 blackwall radials are the perfect rolling stock on this bright little ragtop.
This car gets a lot of things right, and we can guarantee that if you like the color, you're going to love the rest of the car. Call today!
