1965 Ford Mustang
Zoom icon


Very few classic cars can carry the distinction as one of the highest produced cars of its time and as well as some of the rarest cars of its time, but yet the Ford Mustang is able to do this for nearly every year. Think about it, as many Mustangs were produced in 1969 only a fraction left the factory as BOSS 429s. If you include the 64.5 Mustangs, Over 600,000 mustangs were produced in just 1965 alone! of those less than 8,000 were k-code 271hp Mustangs. That's 1.3% of the entire production run. Now you can understand why were are really excited about this 1965 Ford Mustang K-code fastback.

Not only did this leave the factory as one of the rarest mustangs out there, but it also left in arguably the greatest colors - Code A - Raven Black. It's accented very nicely by the rare palomino pony interior. Quick observers will notice that it wears all the correct GT components, but I don't believe it to be a real GT. The mustang doesn't have much documentation short of owner's manual and hipo manual. But, from what I can tell, it very well could be a dealer installed GT package because it's all there - correct gauges, fog lights, 13/16 front sway bar, AX coded steering box, exhaust out the rear, correct stripe, badging, etc.. But without documentation, there's no way to know for certain.

The paint shows very well and we would call it good driver condition. It's black so it shows a lot of the minor flaws that colors like red and yellow wont. But a good wet sand and buff and this car would eliminate a lot of the flaws that have occurred over time. Most of which are just from road debris. Whoever painted it clearly knew what they were doing because the car is straight and clean. I'd just say it's probably a 10 - 15 years on the paint.

Pop open the hood and you'll see the correct 289ci V8 wearing the correct big exhaust manifolds, correct dampener and correct dual point distributor. These K-codes made 271hp at 6,000 rpms! Today this engine fires up easily and sounds great. Backed to the engine is the correct BX code close ratio top loader 4-speed manual with a 8.8 rear out back.

Inside the interior shows extremely well. The tan palomino interior features bucket pony seats, folding 2+2 rear seats, wood grain steering wheel and a upgraded AM/FM cassette player. It's a great accent to the black exterior and a color combination that you just never see on these old mustangs.

Don't miss your chance to own this one of a kind Mustang. Contact Shelton Classics & Performance at 704-663-0432 or for more information
