This Mustang is a factory K-Code car and it's sporting a glossy Black Exterior Paint finish, Manual Convertible Top, Black Interior, 15'' Magnum 500 Wheels, BFGoodrich Radial T/A Tires, Chrome Bumpers, Polished Trim, and a Dual Exhaust System! The previous owner of this Mustang let us know that his father actually purchased this Ford back in the 80's. He would ride around in this '65 with his dad, creating lasting memories. After cruising it around for a few decades, his father decided to bring this Mustang back to life with a complete Nut and Bolt Restoration that was done by local experts here in the Metro-Detroit area! After it's completion, this Ford was passed down through the family, while also being meticulously cared for! Under the hood sits a Ford 289ci Hi-Po V8 Engine with an Autolite 4-Barrel Carburetor sitting on top. Power is sent to the rear tires through a Toploader 4-Speed Manual Transmission and a Ford 9'' Rear End with approximately 3.89:1 Gears and Limited Slip. This Ford is also equipped with Manual Steering and Manual Front Disc Brakes with Kelsey Hayes 4-Piston Calipers.

The interior of this Mustang was wonderfully restored and it's in terrific condition! Take a look inside to see this Ford sporting Front Bucket Seating, Rear Bench Seating, Black Vinyl Upholstery throughout, Black Carpeting and Floor Mats, 3-Point Steering Wheel, Factory Dashboard Gauges and Rally Pac Gauges, Aftermarket AM/FM Radio and Speakers, Center Console, Floor Shifter, and a Spare Tire that's located in the trunk. The undercarriage of this Mustang looks incredible like the rest of the car! Take a look underneath to see the nice condition of the Frame Members, Torque Boxes, Floorboards, Pinch Welds, Rocker Panels, New Fuel Tank, Fuel Lines, Brake Lines with an Adjustable Proportioning Valve, Brakes all around, Complete Drivetrain, Steering Components, Independent Front Suspension, Leaf Spring Rear Suspension, along with the New Dual Exhaust System that's fitted with Factory Replacement Mufflers!
