1965 Mustang Convertible - 289 4V 4 - Speed Gorgeous Poppy Red!

When it comes to top notch Pony cars prices of documented collector pieces and serious pro-touring builds climbing faster than a P-51 in a dog fight, owning one of these high dollar classics can be more nerve racking than fun. That's why the smart hobbyist who likes driving and enjoying his hardware buys a slick, fully sorted steed like this 1965 drop-top. With a fire-breathing 289 under the hood, an awesome restoration and exceptional attention to detail, this impressive Pony will have you rolling in style!

The beneficiary of a professional, ground up restoration, this slick pony features a seamless layer of Poppy Red pigment that's been highlighted by white stripes and sealed in a glossy clearcoat sheen. Take one look down the sides of the car's rock-solid body and it becomes very obvious that great care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to better-than-factory standards. Step closer to that body's mirrored finish and check out its straight and glossy surfaces. Grab the pivotal pieces of that well-adjusted sheetmetal and experience the kind of excellent fit that's right at home reflecting a summertime car show. Then step back to admire one well-done cruiser that's built to exacting specifications thanks to a great combination of skilled workmanship and first-rate finishing techniques.

It's obvious that Ford has always sweated the details on the Mustang. And with completely new brightwork and bolt-on pieces, this car presents a finished, high quality appearance that goes far beyond nice paint and fresh decals. At the front its solid body, an attractive Pony Grille hangs classy driving lamps between clean headlights, chrome-trimmed parking lamps and a mirrored bumper. At the top of that grille, like-new glass rides between stainless wipers, stainless trim and a monochromatic roof. At the sides of that glass, traditionally sculpted sheetmetal lays the groundwork for small mirrors, subtle emblems and old school door handles. And at the back of that sheetmetal, peaked fenders and a second mirrored bumper frame clean tail lights, a highly detailed fuel filler and dramatic stainless exhaust tips.

'Keep it simple' is a good philosophy when it comes to performance and reliability. And the builder of this top notch Mustang did exactly that by bolting a familiar 289 under the car's long orange hood. At the top of that fully sorted mill, a chrome, freshly decaled air cleaner feeds air in to a coated Edelbrock 4-barrel. Below that carburetor, an aluminum Edelbrock intake rides between factory heads that are equipped with aluminum, Cobra stamped valve covers. In front of those heads, a Mallory distributor sends fire through 7mm Ultimate Heat Protection Wires, which snake around jet coated headers. In front of those wires, new V-belts spin the alternator and crank. And at the front of those belts, a correct pulley fan helps cool a factory Ford radiator. Aesthetically, the Ford blue small block sits in a completely restored engine bay that's been carefully stamped and fully detailed. And nice pieces like Satin Black brace bars, an Autolite Sta-Ful battery topper and a pliable FoMoCo washer bag provide a perfect amount of visual punch!

Open the doors and you'll find a fully restored cockpit that's clean, functional and attractive. Bucket and rear bench seats wear pleated Pony covers between 2-piece lap belts and new chrome hardware. In front of those seats, a black - trimmed dash hangs rebuilt Rally - Pac gauges between chrome accessory knobs and a AM/FM Cassette radio. Below that dash, a stylish shifter sits in a full length console on like-new carpet that's protected by thick Pony floor mats. Opposite that shifter, layered door panels are decorated with pristine stainless trim, new chrome handles and fully functional courtesy lamps. In front of the driver, a classy wood steering wheel twists around a brilliant Mustang horn button. And behind the passengers, a correctly restored trunk hangs a factory decal above a full-size spare tire and fresh mat.

Whether you're a diehard Ford fan or a new enthusiast who's just breaking in to the collector car hobby, this Mustang convertible is an excellent fit. With small block power and timeless styling, you'll turn plenty of heads wherever you go. This documented Poppy Red A - code 4 -speed checks all the right boxes for any Pony car enthusiast.
