Ford Mustang 302 CID V8 1965

General description : Now for sale in our Houston showroom is a sweet Presidential Blue 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. This 1965 Mustang is part of the first generation Ford produced from 1964 until 1969. Within the first production year more than 417,000 Mustangs were sold, setting a new record for a new model from Detroit; not to mention creating an entire class of automobiles by itself. These cars had sporty long hoods, along with short rear short decks, and became the progenitor of the "Pony Car" market. The ’65 Mustang was the beginning of a market that still is going strong today, with Camaros, Challengers, Cougars, Barracudas and more joining the fray in the early years. This good-looking 1965 Mustang is equipped with a 289 CID V8, topped with an Edelbrock 4 barrel, and backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission. Fire this pony up and you'll hear the unmistakable rumble of a long tube header-equipped small block with dual exhaust. Jump in, crank up the 289, lower the power top, turn up the radio, slip it into drive, and head down the highway. You'll be thrown back to the sixties in the blue and white Pony interior, done in synthetic leather; while you listen to your tunes coming from the Pioneer speakers mounted in the front kick panels. And, if all of that gets the speedo needle to far to the right, a gentle squeeze on the brake pedal gets the front Wilwood disk brakes a-clamping, and you're back to the speed limit quickly. All this Pony Car wants to do is cruise down the road with the top down, giving its occupants that free feeling that is like nothing possible from a hardtop ride. Options on this beautiful convertible Mustang include: Air Conditioning, Vintage-style AM/FM Radio with Cassette, Power Convertible Top, Custom Aluminum Wheels, Power Steering, Seatbelts, Vinyl Interior, and Radial tires.

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
