Vehicle Story

This 1965 Ford Mustang coupe is finished in Twilight Turquoise over a black interior and powered by its matching-numbers K-code 289ci V8 engine and 4-speed transmission. The car was sold new in Southern California, where it has resided its entire life, in1980 until it was acquired by the previous owner who started disassembling the car to restore it. However, the project was stalled, and the car was stored until acquired by the seller in 2015 when the restoration efforts were resumed by Mustang Country International of Lakewood, California. The restoration was completed in October of 2020, and this 1965 K-code Mustang is now offered for sale on a clean California title in the seller's name.

The exterior of the Mustang was refinished in its original shade of Twilight Turquoise. All chrome and brightwork are in good condition, including the bumpers with bumperettes, door handles, window trim, taillight bezels, and grille trim. Amber turn indicators are mounted on the front valance, along with chrome vertical bumperettes. The Mustang emblem is featured in the middle of the grille, while "FORD" lettering is affixed on the hood. 

Factory 14" steel wheels feature hubcaps with faux spinners and are wrapped in Hankook Optimo H724 tires. The recently restored braking system consists of manual drums all around, and the suspension system is fully restored and all new.

The interior features standard bucket seats upholstered in black vinyl with matching rear bench, carpets, and door panels. A polished shifter with a reverse lockout is mounted on the transmission tunnel and surrounded by a chrome trim plate and black shift boot. Chrome hardware for the window cranks and door handles is mounted on the door panels, while controls for the heater are located in the dash. An AM radio is mounted in the original location, and the passenger side glove compartment door features a chrome surround with Mustang emblem in the lower right corner.

 

The three-spoke steering wheel fronts a 120-mph speedometer with ancillary gauges for fuel and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows over 54K miles, which are claimed original, and 50 of which have been added by the seller in the last two months since the restoration.

 

The matching-numbers 289ci Hi-Po V8 powerplant produced a factory-rated 271 horsepower and 312 lb-ft of torque when new and is original to the car. Rebuilt during the restoration, all belts, hoses, and wiring are new, and all hardware is OEM correct. The engine bay is finished in matte black while all components have been refinished or replated to original condition. The matching-numbers 4-speed Toploader manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels through a solid axle with 3:50:1 gears and an open differential.

The underside has been fully restored, with all components repainted or related. Additional underside photos are available in the gallery.
 

Records from the restoration are included in the sale.

@Leifp – Beautiful car. As this car is very much about the motor, does the seller have any photos of the VIN on the block and fender? Could you elaborate on the extent of the rebuild? TIA and GLWTA. ...

Please note the new pictures added of the VIN. The engine block picture is not as clear as I'd like, but does show enough of the numbers to show a match to the fender / door.

So, what we have here is pretty much the ideal to original, documented classic that changed the world auto. Advertised in a well publicized open aution with the money in the room. What it sells for can righteously be said to be the market value.

@RichardCH – I do have a picture of the VIN on the fender. We checked the VIN when the motor was out, and it did match. Now that the motor is in, it is tough to get a picture of the VIN without putting the car up on a lift. I will work on getting that picture. Not sure if you mean the rebuild of the car or the engine. The engine was rebuilt by L & R Engines in Santa Fe Springs, CA. There's about 50 miles on the rebuilt engine. ...

Sorry, just asking about the engine. Thanks for the quick reply and look forward to any future pics.
