The first-generation Ford Mustang kick-started an era of pony cars into production. Soon after introduction, competitors were scrambling to offer competing models, thus cementing an entire genre of American automobiles. The Ford Mustang's classic styling needs little introduction with a long hood and the Fastback's well-proportioned shape with the sloping rear. There's little doubt it's one of the most recognizable car designs in history. And the first-generation 1965 Ford Mustang for sale here combines those classic design elements with some subtle (and a few not so subtle) upgrades to reveal a resto-mod that may even get the attention of the hardened purists. For everyone else, this 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback offers a delightful combination of carefully selected parts that brings the classic look and feel into the 21st century with useable power and driving dynamics.
Perhaps the most striking element, painted in bright yellow with classic black stripes, this Mustang Fastback is undoubtedly not for shrinking violets. Once you get over the bold paintwork, you'll notice the pleasingly low-slung stance that this Mustang has, achieved by Ride Tech coil overs sitting on 17" US Mags wheels. It also features a fiberglass hood. Inside this Mustang, careful attention has been made to keep a large degree of originality. It comes with a vintage-style gauge cluster and discreet air conditioning, retrofitted with a Vintage Air kit. Other additions include a Cobra Shifter knob and LED interior lighting. The bucket seats are from TMI.
