HIGHLIGHTS: Factory C-code Toploader 4-speed car! Beautiful burgundy metallic paint over unique palomino vinyl bucket seat interior! Center console! Fresh restoration!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and solid, and really looks fantastic. Imperfections are at a minimum, as this car was finished in 2020 and has nearly all new parts installed. All of the brightwork, the GT lamps, and emblems are new, recently installed parts. Lots of new metal! New metal includes floors, frame connectors, torque boxes, trunk floors w/drop offs, rear tail panel, quarter panels, fenders, hood, all inner engine bay aprons, battery tray, trunk lid, as well as both bumpers.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The Vintage Burgundy metallic paint is a unique, attractive color that really gives this Mustang a classy look. Like the rest of this car, the paint was also done recently. The only noticeable imperfections are some very, very light scratches from frequent cleaning that would likely be remedied with a full buffing.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is what really ties everything together on this Mustang! The palomino and brown colors of the interior look simply stunning against the burgundy, and make this Mustang absolutely pop. This thing is sure to stand out in any crowd! Much like the exterior, the interior is nearly all new parts. New/reconditioned interior parts include: All new interior
-Reconditioned factory option center console
-Front & rear seat upholstery
-Carpet with Dynamat
-Dash pad
-Door panels
-New door sill plates
-All new side glass window felts (front/rear)
-Package tray
-New door/window handles
-Sun visors
-New steering wheel & horn ring
-All new weather stripping
-New trunk mat with matching spare tire cover

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The beautifully restored condition continues under the hood and underneath the car. So much nice, new stuff! The 289 runs like a champ, and starts with one single bump of the starter. This 1965 Mustang has that nice, classic Mustang exhaust sound you'd expect! The Toploader 4-speed transmission shifts smoothly, and this car is all the fun a good ol' 289 Mustang should be. While it has manual drum brakes, that's all a car this size really needs, and it stops great! New drivetrain and suspension components include:

-Rebuilt Toploader 4-speed transmission
-Rebuilt 289 V8 Engine
-New clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing
-New front suspension
-New steering components
-New rear springs, shackles, poly bushings

-All new brake lines
-Split reservoir brake master cylinder
-New styled chrome steel wheels, center caps, lug nuts
-New BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires (2019 date code)
-New Edelbrock Performer intake and 4-barrel carburetor

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The uncommon color combination, unique look, and how fresh it is!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The clutch pedal spring is a little noisy, but beyond that it would be really tough to dislike this little car!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The original AM radio is currently installed only for looks, so that would need to be replaced or otherwise addressed if you want cruisin' tunes.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an affordable, fully restored classic Mustang coupe should consider this car. This is a fantastic example that is ready for a new owner!
