Ford Mustang 289 V8 1965

General description : Description
This 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible is not only originally an A-code car, but also the colors have been upgraded to an absolutely awesome theme. So you already know this one has the distinction you really want.
A well-done black car instantly grabs the right kind of attention. And this one turns it up a notch. Straight body panels and clean lines make sure that the glossy paint can truly complement the sheetmetal. And because this is a sunshine-friendly drop-top they even added a hint of metallic to the paint to really make it pop in the light. The chrome bumpers have that ideal look where they contrast the black while still accompanying the shine. Styed steel wheels, ribbed rockets, and bright dual exhaust tips add to the unmistakable sporty style that keeps this pony car an icon.
The black roof looks good against the black paint, but when you fold it down via power top switch, a whole new personality emerges. The white interior gives this the kind of sophisticated color combo that has the same appeal as a tuxedo. And it's a well-done setup where the white convertible boot and whitewall tires really help make this an intertwined color package. This white interior was an upgrade later in life, and it was a full changeover with nice seats, door panels, center console, lower dash, and even the steering wheel. Of course, high traffic areas are thankfully done in black. There's even a hint of patina in places like the center console that will make people believe that this could be the factory setup (we won't tell, if you won't.) In fact, the only modern piece in this true classic you may really notice is the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. It means you get upgraded driving music in this classic cruising convertible.
Under the hood is Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8. The engine bay has some extra flair with bright valve covers, a matching air topper, and even additional bracing bars. There's even a new stainless dual exhaust. It has the right features for an easy cruiser, like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and deep tread on the modern tires. With a little added investment, this one can really be your favorite classic boulevard machine.
You want a Mustang convertible for sunny day fun, and this V8 drop-top really has that extra appeal inside and out. So you know it's the pony car for you. 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
