Ford Mustang 289 V8 1965

General description : GORGEOUS C-CODE 289 CONVT, AUTO, PS, PB W/DISC, FACT COLORS, RALLY PAC, PONY INT

When you think about your perfect 1965 Ford Mustang convertible, this is exactly what comes to mind. After all, when it has been given all the right investments in paint, a show-stopping interior, and plenty of V8 power, this is a terrific total package droptop.
The iconic lines of the first-year Ford Mustang convertible are instantly recognizable the moment it turns a corner. But what really impress is when a car as crisp as this one. The sheetmetal has well-defined creases where you can see the sporty overhang of the hood, short rear deck, and the crease that runs the full length with a classic kick-up behind the door. Of course the other reason you can see this so well is because the factory-correct Rangoon Red has been give the kind of professional respray that too extra time to apply. That's why the paint appears so smooth as the light rolls evenly across the panels. And competing for this shine is terrific brightwork on everything from the full rocker trim to the wraparound chrome bumpers. And this one has also been given some period-correct upgrades like the styled steel wheels and the GT-style trumpeted rear exhaust. But the boldest detail is the pony emblem up front that's now backlit to keep this cherry red Mustang absolutely memorable.
Black goes great with red, and this one showcases that the best. Not only does it have a nice deep black convertible top, but with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a terrifically intertwined color combo. This is a terrific two-tone as the black on the seats, door panels, carpeting are merged with the red door tops and floor mats. Even the center console and dash utilize these two colors perfectly. It's a fantastically coordinated total package that's a show-stopper all on its own. But more than just look great, this has the details right, too. After all we all love the look of the premium "Pony" package on the seatbacks, and the condition tells you they made a solid investment here. There's even the desirable Rally Pac mounted on the steering column for display. Plus, the radio has been upgraded to a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with an input for your iPod – because a cool cruising droptop like this needs to have the best tunes available.
Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8 is a terrific powerhouse for both power and dependability. And when you see that this one not only has the right shiny pieces, but also fresh components like the belts, wires, and hoses – then you realize that they spent good money maintaining this icon. The V8 inhales deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of a stainless dual exhaust. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes, this one has the right features to enjoy the drive.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the iconic classic Mustang done the right way. That's why it's always going to be in demand. Don't miss out, call today!

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
