Outside of the infamous Shelby Mustangs, there aren't many Ford pony cars that are more desirable than a 1965 Mustang convertible, which is exactly what we have here. It has been restored and detailed to a very high standard, and is ready to show, drive, and enjoy today. Buy now or regret it later, and don't say I didn't warn you.
The body on this ragtop is in excellent condition, having been fully restored in 2007. The body received extensive work to get it this straight and clean, and panel alignment is very, very good. The deep red metallic paint shines better than the original ever did. Look at the photos again and check out the shut lines on those doors, -- there's no sagging, no sign of fatigue in the rockers, nothing. This car was restored to better than new condition in every measurable way, and has been driven less than 2,000 miles since its completion. There are no ripples, no waves, no dings, just perfect, flat, straight sheet metal everywhere you look. The chrome and trim on this car were also restored or replaced during the restoration, and everything is in first-rate shape today. The bumpers have to be new, since they are completely wave-free. Out back, the exhaust trumpets protrude from the rear valence and sound amazing.
The engine compartment in this D-code convertible is highly detailed. The block has been freshly painted black, not Ford Blue as many people think it should be, and shows very few signs of usage. The 289ci, Edelbrock intake and 4 bbl Holley carb has a mild cam and runs strong. There is a high torque starter, chrome alternator, and a beautiful restoration job on the power steering pump. The MSD billet distributor, MSD coil and Taylor wires are all new. Check out the finish inside this engine bay! From the underside of the hood, to the inner fenders, to the core support and radiator, no expense was spared! New horns, original Ford replacement radiator hose and factory clamps were all included in the restoration. The attention to detail under this hood is incredible.
The transmission is a smooth shifting C4 automatic. The rear end has been stripped and beautifully repainted flat black. Ceramic coated headers, new Flowmaster mufflers and stainless steel pipes handle the exhaust. Out back you will find rebuilt springs and drum brakes, and up front you will see the steering gear has been rebuilt with new pressure lines and bushings. A new gas tank, fuel lines and fuel pump were included in the restoration. Up front you will see new motor mounts, a new transmission cooler line, cross over tube, and drum brakes up front. The rust free frame is in outstanding condition, as are the floorboards. Everything is clean, nicely painted, and the spot welds are visible. There is a small amount of patch work in the floorboards near the rockers, and it has been very well done. The frame has been given some extra support to handle the convertible lifestyle.
The fully restored standard bucket seat interior is absolutely. The seats feature new foam under fresh seat covers, the door panels are new, and fresh carpet is on the floors underneath Mustang embroidered floor mats. The dash and gauges have been fully restored. There is a Custom Autosound replica AM/FM radio with Pioneer speakers mounted in the door panels. The pristine console houses the automatic shifter, and overhead the convertible top is new. The plastic rear window is clear and unblemished, and the convertible top boot that covers it all looks to have never been used.
These convertible pony cars are an absolute blast to drive. With a high-quality restoration this would be an incredible summer driver that would be welcome at any show. Go ahead and try to find a nicer one for sale today. We'll wait, but only until the next guy calls and buys it. Call now! 7 Days a week 248-974-9513
