West Coast Classics are proud to present a beautiful example of this rust free 1965 Ford Mustang 200 c.i. 6 cyl 4 spd Convertible built in San Jose, California in its original 'Rangoon Red' (color code J) factory color paint matched to its original Red vinyl interior (trim code 25) and matched to a rare 4 speed manual transmission!
The car was originally purchased in 1965 and the car is something of an oddity having been built at the San Jose plant in early 1965 but with 64 1/2 window cranks and door handles. It boasts it's original 'Rangoon Red' color paint with a 'Red Standard Vinyl' standard interior and was built with the rarer 4 speed manual transmission and conventional 3.20:1 axle and this is a car that has reportedly spent its whole life garaged in southern California and is a true time capsule with reportedly an original only some 17K + miles as of 2013 according to the CA title!
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!
This car must be driven to be fully appreciated - the original engine is extremely strong and responsive and the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. This is one 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!
