I found a 1965  mustang on CL monday night, called tuesday, and picked it up yesterday. It is a 289 4V car with a front bench seat. They only made a little over 14,000 with this option out of almost 500,000 mustangs. I started it today at lunch, fired right up. All this for 2000.00. The last pictures are after a late night car wash run. It has a little of the Mustang rust spots but really not to bad, i was very suprised. This is going to be my wifes and my sunday cruising car.

Danged NICE looking 'Stang :thumbs:

 

That 289 is a big plus too.

 

I've always maintained that the 289 was the best V8 that Ford ever produced (well, not counting the old flat heads).

That's a killer deal for $2000. I've seen basket case rust buckets for more than that.

 

There is a 65 or 66 near my house sitting in a drive. It has been covered up for at least 20 yrs, looks like front fender is caved in. They won't do anything with it or sell it, but they make sure to get cover back on if it gets blown off.

Are you going to restore the car? Or at least fix the interior?

Lucky you!  In that part of the country shouldn't be too much concealed rust, but check the inner rockers & torque boxes.  If the door gaps are straight you should be good.

I have a 66 drop top that took me 15 years to restore.  Had it on the road for several years & one winter the snow collapsed my storage building on it.  Got to restore it the second time, not near as much fun, but easier.  Good luck with it.

Wow! I didn't think scrap iron went for that much down there! :D     Sorry but I had to say it, I'm a bit of a Mopar guy.

 

You got a nice looking stang there. :thumbs:     Is it all original or has been repainted? If it was mine I'd leave it the way it is. They're (old cars) getting harder to find in original condition.

That was a steal.  I would have bought it for that money, even though I swore I would never get into antique cars!!

SWEET DEAL!!!

Dad used to have a 65 fastback the same color inside and out! 

I inflicted some serious torture on that car   Even dated the MRS. in it some.   :smilewink:   She still talks about the time she was driving it and had to stop at a red light at the second steepest intersection in town.  She was a little nervous with the 4 speed to begin with and a car pulled right up on our rear bumper.  I told her I don't care what you do, but DON'T ROLL BACK ONE INCH!!!!   When the light turned green she dumped the clutch at about 4 grand and spun for 1/2 of a city block.  I kept screaming let off the gas!  When things calmed down she calmly said - "You told me not to roll back and I didn't!  

Didn't have to worry about a ticket though - her daddy was the local police captian!  :angel:

 

That was 20 years ago this summer!
