Early Ford Mustangs were and always will be inexpensive fun. This 1965 Mustang coupe is just the right kind of car to get started in the hobby and no collection is complete without one of Ford's pony cars. It's not perfect, it's not a horsepower monster, but it is a clean, dependable, fun way to have fun in an old car without breaking the bank. No other car can deliver the experience of an early Mustang for so little cash.
You can hardly go wrong with a classic Wimbledon White Mustang, which means you're going to get a lot of attention. It was never intended to be a show car (coupes just don't command the prices to justify a $10,000 paint job), but it presents rather well and you won't worry about driving it just about anywhere. Rain? No problem. Bugs? Forget about it. Parking lot? No worries. It's got a clean, honest look that works best on coupes and it's been spared the stripes and wings that plague so many other ponies. You'll note that it fits together pretty well, with good gaps and reasonable seams all around, so it has probably never been wrecked or rusty and seems to have led a pretty good life. A few chrome pieces make the Mustang look dressy, including the 1965-only grille with the cross-hairs, the quarter panel insert, and, of course, a shiny gas cap in the center of the rear panel. This is how Mustangs have looked for decades.
The black bucket seat interior is how this car was originally delivered and it's in very good shape overall. It's probably a combination of original and replacement parts, because some things are just too nice to be 50 years old, including the carpets and the seat covers. There's a deep-dish steering wheel and the standard instruments keep an eye on the basics. The dash pad, headliner, and other soft parts don't need any attention at all, and with an AM/FM/cassette radio powering speakers on the rear package shelf, it's ready to go. The shifter for the 3-speed manual transmission falls easily to hand and looks great between the seats and the back seat is in great shape, too. A neatly finished trunk with a full-sized spare tire makes this car feel complete and ready for a road trip.
Experts will note that the VIN contains a "T" which means a smooth-running 200 cubic inch inline-six, which is hardly a handicap. It's got a legendary reputation for durability and smoothness, and if you look around, you'll find a lot of guys who are very passionate about this engine. It looks quite stock with bright orange paint on the air cleaner and valve cover and black everywhere else, which is how they were delivered in 1965. The transmission shifts crisply and smoothly and with relatively relaxed gears out back, it's a wonderfully efficient car on the highway. The exhaust gives the six a great sound that's a little different than all the V8 cars but never annoying. The important parts are quite solid and blackwall radials on vintage "kidney bean" aluminum wheels give it a '60s performance look.
For entry-level fun, it's hard to beat a Mustang coupe. Everyone loves these cars and few will realize just how affordable they are. A great opportunity for the first-time classic car buyer. Call today!
