The car boasts it's original and very striking 'Silver Blue Metallic' factory color paint with a complimentary 'Light Blue Crinkle & White Crinkle Pony' standard interior and which was built on 4/15/1965 with the C4 automatic transmission and conventional 2.80:1 axle and originally sold in Dallas, TX at the 'Davis Ford Company' and this is a car that has reportedly spent most of its life garaged in Texas and in recent years in Arizona by its previous long time mature owner and is a true time capsule.
Ford's biggest success of the sixties and the originator of the 'Pony car' concept was essentially a sporty compact car but with a now legendary long hood and short deck proportions, built on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drive-train components, the Ford Mustang was introduced in April 1964 as '65 models and within a year became the fastest selling car of all time; with these early production cars now carrying special favor! The upgraded V8 from the Falcon six cylinder engine was the 260 c.i. V8 produced on the same assembly line with other 1964 Fords, the early models were titled as 1965 models although they were actually from the 1964 production era. After September 1964 the 260 V8 was dropped in favor of the larger 289 V8 like this particular car!
This car must be driven to be fully appreciated - the original engine is extremely strong and responsive and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. The car is simply a superb example with its original factory 'Silver Blue Metallic' color paint and 'Light Blue & White Crinkle Vinyl' standard interior! This is one very superb example of this very collectible and desirable early production example of the legendary Ford Mustang in turn-key ready daily appreciating, daily driving and daily head-turning condition!
