The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the 'Pony Car'. The Mustang's styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of competition. The first generation Mustang was manufactured from 1964-1/2 until 1973 and this restored 1965 model is a nice example of a coupe with numerous performance upgrades.The solid body was reshot in 2-stage Rich Aqua Blue in 2020. Chrome and stainless trim are in good condition. Gen2 Mustang 'Mach I' 14"" steel wheels mount Firestone Primewell radials. The interior was reupholstered in Blue vinyl w/new carpeting and a full gauge package has been added. This Mustang was a 'C' code car from the factory " 289ci/2V 'Windsor'. That engine has been replaced with a built/balanced 347ci 'Stroker' Windsor motor. It is fitted with DDS forged pistons, moly-chrome rings, Stage-3 COMP Cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake/carb and long tube headers w/custom side exhaust. The engine is nicely dressed with Summit's Windsor chrome package. Power is delivered via a 'World Class T-5' manual gearbox and Ford 8"" differential with 3.00:1 gearing.
