1965 Ford Mustang Fastback August 17th, 1964 etched a momentous event into the annals of automotive history: the assembly line completion of the very first Ford Mustang 2+2 GT fastback. This seminal occasion ushered in a new era for the automotive industry, as this iconic vehicle not only boasted a sleek and distinctive design but also heralded unparalleled performance and attitude. The Mustang\'s debut was a seismic shift in American car culture, captivating enthusiasts and forever securing its place as an emblem of power, style, and innovation. The 1960\'s bore witness to a paradigm shift in perspectives and aspirations, and the youth of America were yearning for an automobile that would fulfill their practical needs while resonating with their sense of adventure and individuality. Recognizing this burgeoning trend, Ford embarked on a mission to craft a vehicle that would resonate with this emerging market. The result was the Ford Mustang, a car that encapsulated the very spirit of the times and birthed the pony car genre. Born on March 13th, 1965, this Mustang has undergone an extensive restoration bringing it back to nearly showroom new. Retaining its original Dynasty Green exterior and black standard appointments on the interior, the restoration stuck exactly to the way this stunning and wildly popular fastback rolled off the Dearborn assembly line. A consignor stated 3-owner car that was restored in the 90\'s is still looking showroom fresh today in our overstuffed Hallowed Halls. Exterior This car has it all with the fastback styling, vented B pillar, ribbed and polished stainless steel rocker molding, hockey stick door and rear quarter coves, and 14-inch steel wheels with standard issue Mustang covers. All this straight steel is draped in warranty plate correct Dynasty Green, and it is looking very good with only a few very minor inclusions. All chrome on the bumpers is good, and the same goes for the correct badging and decals. A look from the rear reveals the iconic triple vertical cluster of taillights, running horse fuel filler cap, and a large curved rear greenhouse glass. The front of the car features the horizontal and vertically barred galloping pony hovering in the honeycomb grille and sandwiched between single round headlights within louvered bezels. Interior No liberties were taken on the interior during the restoration and the warranty tag was followed exactingly. Very clean looking buckets upfront and a 2 plus 2 rear bench with smooth black bolsters and nice black horizontal tuck and roll inserts greet our posterious upon slipping inside. As an added bonus the rear seat folds flat for a little more cargo space. The center hump races from front to rear and has a chrome laded wonderful 60\'s style shifter well within reach of the driver\'s right arm. The dash is the original Mustang configuration for 1965 model year, and holds the long sweeping speedometer between 2 rounds all within a black camera case finished bezel. This is fronted by the original 3 spoke black plastic steering wheel. In the center is a modern AM/FM/Cassette radio and heater slides, and on the passenger\'s side is a black texture finished glovebox. Black carpet floods the floors and is very clean as well as the black vinyl headliner. A shout to the original looking nicely finished correct plaid covered trunk and original looking spare. Drivetrain An original to this car 200ci I6 topped with a 1-barrel carburetor resides in the cleanly restored engine bay and shows with a black block and red dress up for the valve covering and air cleaner assembly. All dressed up, it has correct hoses, wires and bolt ons with things are looking very much like new here. A C4 3-speed automatic is bolted to the back of the mill and rounding out the drivetrain is a Ford 7 1/4 conventional rear axle weighing in with a 2.83 ratio. Undercarriage All extremely clean and virtually no road dirt and only slight surface rust on
