This 1965 Ford Mustang is exactly what you want in an early pony car. It's a unique-color coupe with an award-winning level of restoration. And there's even a terrific story to go with it all.
Not only is the factory-correct Honey Gold a memorable color on this pony car, but also it was only offered for one year. So this one instantly has rarity and distinction, and so that makes for the reason to treat this one special. The story we're told is that this was restored by the president of a Mustang club, and in fact, he bought the car from his brother-in-law, the first owner. So that would have the right linage to believe there's originality in many of the main components. While we don't have definitive proof on that, we do have proof of how comprehensive the late 1980s restoration is. That's why this one comes with a trunk full of awards, including an AACA nation winner in 1990. And while the restoration is a little older than many out there, you'd never know it from the appearance. After all, top quality endures, and this has only been in the hands of those who have respected the gold-metal golden Mustang. The deep luster of the paint really highlights the iconic lines with 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. And the details on this one are terrific. Mirror-like chrome bumpers and trim are pure Americana, and even the wire wheel covers have the correct classic style.
There's even more golden glow waiting for you on the inside. So this one was born with a vivid and harmonious style inside and out. Also, just like the exterior, the interior received a big investment so that it can truly impress. It has a fresh look on the door panels, headliner, dash pad, and carpeting. And the seats have a crisp presentation so that you can really see the pleats in the upholstery. The details are terrific - everywhere from the working AM radio to the bright working courtesy lights. There are even the Ford instructional tags in place for an added touch of factory-fresh attitude.
Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay has an impressive stock style. The 289 cubic-inch V8 has an attractive golden glow from the air grabber and valve covers that radiate within the clean and dark inner walls. The correct Ford hoses, washer fluid bag, decals, and all the other details keep this an award-worthy coupe. Even the undercarriage is exceptionally clean with a color-matched gold. And you can tell when a car like this has not only been stored, but also maintained to a top-quality standard. That's why it fires up readily, idles smoothly, shifts crisply, and drives with confidence.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and plenty of awards this car has earned...but you know it's not done collecting trophies. So if you want a stunner from day one, you know you need this pony car in your stable. Call today!!!
