A longtime southern car, this 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback was restored within the last year by the previous owner in Western Florida. Featuring fresh paint, an undercoated body and frame, and a lightly modified 302 V8 backed by an automatic transmission, this Mustang is a true fastback as verified by the VIN codes found on the car. Minor work still needs to be completed on the exhaust system, which currently terminates under the car, and the gauge cluster, which is partially nonfunctional. This 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback is being offered from the Exotic Car Trader inventory as-is with a clean Florida title and a clean Carfax.
The 1965 Mustang Fastback bears distinct design elements unique to the earliest models. Finished in blue with white stripes, this example rides on new wheels and Cooper tires, both oversized at the rear. The exterior restoration included body and chassis undercoating and the addition of a fiberglass hood and trunk lid, all completed within the last year. Trim and brightwork are noted to be in excellent condition throughout. Inside, this '65 Mustang has been fully restored and reupholstered. A new headliner was installed along with fresh carpeting, a Grant steering wheel, a B&M floor shifter, and a vintage-style stereo. New panels, trim, and accents are found alongside high-quality original parts throughout the cabin. The gauge cluster is partially nonfunctional due to a suspected wiring issue. The odometer reads 35,328 miles at the time of documentation and is believed to have rolled over once.
This 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback is powered by a lightly modified 302 V8 backed by an automatic transmission. A drum brakes and manual steering car, this Mustang benefits from 351 heads, an Edelbrock carburetor, an electric radiator fan, and new exhaust system components. Fabrication is needed to connect the exhaust system over the axle.
