Vehicle Story

This customized 1965 Ford Mustang hardtop was inspired by 1960s club racers and reportedly comes equipped with more than $23,000 in exterior, interior, drivetrain, steering, exhaust, suspension, and braking upgrades. These include a Shelby GT350R-style grille assembly, New Vintage USA gauges, an Autopower roll bar, Kirkey Racing Fabrication front bucket seats, Flaming River electric power steering, a dual-exhaust system, a Hotchkis suspension kit, and Wilwood front and rear disc brakes. Power from the 289ci V8 is routed through a Tremec 5-speed gearbox and a Moser 9-inch rear end with an Eaton Detroit Truetrac differential. Finished in light blue over a black vinyl interior, this modified first-generation Mustang is available now with a build sheet with itemized pricing, original and reproduction documents, and a clear title.

Both ends of the light blue exterior are equipped with chrome bumpers. At the front is a Shelby GT350R-style grille assembly and a fiberglass front spoiler. A blacked-out hood with hood pins and a center scoop covers the engine and is flanked by black-out strips on top of the front fenders. The rear end features a black trim panel and LED tri-bar taillights with new assemblies. As the photos in the gallery to the right show, the paint on the roof and back end is faded.

A set of 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels with black centers and polished lips is surrounded by 225/60/15 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.

The black cockpit is furnished with a pair of Kirkey Racing Fabrication front bucket seats mounted on new sliders and equipped with vintage-style seat belts, new chrome trim, pleated door panels, and carpeting. It features manual window cranks, a three-spoke Momo Prototipo steering wheel,  a Flaming River steering column with electric power steering connected to a Flaming River quick-ratio steering box, new dashboard knobs, a floor-mounted Lokar emergency brake handle, and a padded Autopower roll bar. A RetroSound Bluetooth radio is present but is currently not wired.

Vehicle information is displayed on a set of New Vintage USA gauges consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, an 8K-rpm tachometer, and readouts for the fuel level, voltage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The digital odometer currently shows the 996 miles accrued since the completion of the build but the true mileage on the car is unknown. A video showing the sweep of the gauges has been posted below.

Under the hood is a 289ci V8 equipped with a one-wire high-amp alternator, an aluminum flywheel, an American Autowire wiring harness, and a Canton Racing Products 7-quart oil pan with baffles. The brand-new Tremec TKX 5-speed manual gearbox has a hydraulic clutch and a Tremec aluminum bell housing. Power is sent to the road through an aluminum driveshaft with a Metco Motorsports safety loop and a Moser 9-inch rear end with upgraded Ford Torino bearings, an Eaton Detroit Truetrac differential, and Strange Engineering 31-spline axles. Chassis upgrades include an export brace, a Cobra Automotive firewall brace and reinforced coil spring covers, and a Monte Carlo bar.

The engine breathes through a dual-exhaust setup with outlets that end in front of the rear differential. Brake upgrades include Wilwood front and rear discs and new brake lines with flexible stainless covers at all four corners. A full Hotchkis TVS Stage 2 suspension kit has replaced all of the factory suspension components with new hardware, including tubular upper and lower control arms, and Fox Racing shocks. The "Shelby Drop" has been performed in the front to correct the suspension geometry. 

The seller has posted videos below that show the car being started up and driven as well as footage of the underbody. A build sheet with itemized pricing will be included with the sale of the vehicle as well as original and reproduction documents.
