There's a hierarchy when it comes to 1965 Ford Mustangs, and the K-Code HiPo 289 is king. Finding one with its rare numbers-matching V8 under the hood, four-on-the-floor, and a premium presentation inside & out means you're looking at rare pony car royalty.
A high-performance Mustang is often rendered in red or black, but this one goes for a more premium feeling with its factory-correct Caspian Blue. Only available on 1965 cars, this is an attractive way to stand out. There has been an investment in a professional respray that gives this one an added depth when the sunlight hits the modern application. Bodywork is excellent with straight panels and good alignment throughout, which means you can shut the doors with confidence every time. The brightwork is complete and straight on everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers to the iconic 289 badges. And you can really tell this is a first-class pony car by more than just its interesting paint and trim. The styled steel wheels and are white vinyl roof are part of a total package that announces its premium presence while remaining period-correct.
There's even more period-correct distinction when you open the door. It starts with the factory-correct blue crinkle vinyl seats. They coordinate nicely with the side panels, carpeting, dash, and even the exterior paint to give this coupe the appeal of a deep blue ocean. You get all the great iconic features like the bucket seats, dual cowl dash, and the three-spoke sports steering wheel with pony logo center cap. But then there are also nice subtle upgrades like the retrosound radio that keeps the classic knob-style appearance while upgrading you to a digital AM/FM tuner with cassette player. But from the moment you spot the rare Rally-Pac and rest your right hand on the chrome gearshift, you begin to realize how special this '65 Mustang really is.
As much as you'll love the interior and exterior, it's the rare K-code HiPo 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood that will impress even the most seasoned Mustang enthusiast. It's Ford's racing motor that took home the trophies around the globe, and so it's fantastic to have the original numbers-matching powerplant still living in this engine bay. It has the right amount of flash on the air topper and valve covers that also proudly announce its high performance heritage. But more importantly, you can see that everything has been maintained correctly on this significant motor from the belts & hoses, to the correct decals in the engine bay. With the turn of the key, the dual exhaust gives a high octane V8 symphony, and the four-speed manual transmission makes you its conductor. The Ford nine-inch rear end has versatile 3.50 gears to give it plenty of punch around town but still cruises reasonably at highway speeds. Plus, the thick sway bar up front is great for handling, and the wide set of BF Goodrich T/As keeps plenty of rubber on the road to truly enjoy this rare performance pony.
There were only 7,273 K-Code '65 Mustangs ever made. Just think about how many have been harvested or abused over the last half-century, and then you realize what a treasure a complete and cared for car this coupe really is. Rare opportunities like this are fleeting, and forever regretted when missed, so call today!
