The Ford Mustang along with the Falcon in which the very first Mustangs received the same power plant was slotted into the compact car arena and was the designed and built under direct command of Lee Iacocca.
The Mustangs styling with its longer hood and short deck lid proved to be an instant success and brought an onslaught of competition. The first generation from 1964-1973 offered three different body styles; the hard-top, convertible and later the first year was the fast back which was extremely popular and sold very well. As the Mustang gained popularity, Ford offered different engine options and packages that could be purchased.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this absolutely beautiful 1965 Mustang Fastback 2+2 for your consideration. This car is the result of a 3 year rotisserie nut and bolt restoration with 975 documented hours that were poured into this build. The story starts with a road trip to Rockford, Illinois in 2012 where the car was purchased from. It was then brought back to Michigan where it was stripped down and sandblasted. The floor pans and frame rails were replaced, along with the trunk pan. The cutting and re-fitting was done very precisely. The Mustang was given coats of primer and then the painting process was started while on the rotisserie. The underside of this car looks as immaculate as the top side. The bottom of the car was painted semi-gloss in single stage. The inside and outside were painted in Tahoe Turquoise.

The engine was a 289 block out of a 1968 Bronco. The engine was completely rebuilt, and with the sale of the car comes a very detailed list of components that were used. It has a compression ratio of 9.89:1 with a bore of 4.030” and stroke of 2.870”. The engine puts out roughly 400 horsepower and the rev limiter is still set at factory setting of 5500 RPM but the valve train is capable of 6800 RPM. The crank is a stock .010”/.010” thrust .010” with the balancing done by Performance Engineering. It features a Edelbrock performer air gap intake. It features Air Flow Research 165 Renegade heads. The fuel is fed into a 4 barrel Holley Avenger 670 CFM carburetor. The Mustang breathes through Flowmaster series 40 mufflers with 2 ½” pipes. The engine is mated to a 4 speed toploader Tremec transmission. Power is transferred through a custom driveshaft build by D&R Driveline and fed to the Ford 9” differential.

The Mustang has Custom Autosound MS-SBR slider radio with USB/IPOD/AUX with pioneer speakers, with the IPOD and phone hook-up hid in the glovebox. The car rides on Cragar wheels with BF Goodrich tires mounted on. All the glass was replaced with slightly tinted glass. The seats are out of a 1969-70 Mach 1 and are completely re-done with new foam and material. This car is in immaculate shape and a must have.
