This 1965 Ford Mustang is a non-running project that is said to have been acquired by the owner in 1975 and has remained in storage since approximately 1986. The car is finished in burgundy over white and is fitted with a 289ci V8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. Features include a white soft top, air conditioning equipment, remote mirror adjustment, rocker panel moldings, tinted glass, power steering equipment, front disc brakes, a dual exhaust system, 14″ chrome wheels, Michelin whitewall tires, and a push-button AM radio. It is unknown when the car was last run. This Mustang project is offered at no reserve on dealership consignment with a Pennsylvania title.
The car is finished in burgundy with a white convertible soft top. Features include rocker panel moldings, chrome-finished bumpers, white body-side pinstripes, and a dual-outlet exhaust that exits through the rear valance. Rust is visible on the quarter panels, rocker panels, fenders, and floor pans. The paint is scratched and chipped on the passenger-side quarter panel and bumper corner.
The 14″ chrome wheels are mounted with older Michelin white-stripe tires. A full-size spare is mounted in the trunk. The car is fitted with power steering equipment and front disc brakes.
The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in white vinyl joined by a matching dashboard and door panels. Features include air conditioning equipment, tinted glass, remote mirror adjustment, crank windows, and a push-button AM radio.
The three-spoke steering wheel frames a sweeping 120-mph speedometer flanked by gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 97k miles, approximately 32k of which were added during current ownership.
The A-code 289ci V8 features a four-barrel carburetor and a single-inlet air cleaner assembly. The engine does not run and corrosion is visible on engine components.
A C4 three-speed automatic transmission is fitted. Corrosion is visible on suspension and exhaust components.
