1965 Ford Mustang Restomod description

The wonderful thing about vintage Mustangs is their interchangeability. Not only do you get a wide variety of performance and styling parts you can use to customize your pony, but thanks to the long-running small block V8, upgrades can come from the factory as well as the aftermarket. Dig this 1965 Mustang coupe, a nice-looking cruiser with a fuel-injected 5.0-liter heart that feels anything but old. But before we talk about the hardware, take a look at... how pretty this coupe is. Perhaps also borrowing from a late-model color pallet, the clean metallic blue paint looks right on the old coupe's bodywork. Perhaps a descendant of Guardsman Blue, it has a great shine thanks to a recent color sand and buff, plus an inviting look that doesn't hide the Mustang's identity behind excessive flash. Instead, it shows off nice sheetmetal, good gaps, and a lot of love that went into the build. Clearly someone was thinking carefully about this car as it was going together, and they kept it simple; no stripes, no wing out back, nothing but a chin spoiler to distract from that classic look. Bright chrome trim is all quite nice, given that the aftermarket is full of replacement stuff, and the whole car has a very polished look. Sure, it has a few signs of use, but you won't be ashamed to show up in this one at the local cruise-in. The black interior looks quite stock, including the low-back buckets wearing fresh seat covers, new door panels with matching pleats, and fresh black carpets on the floor. The original instrument panel is full of stock gauges in fair condition, and there are auxiliary dials under the dash to watch the warmed-over 5.0. The shifter looks like it belongs on a manual transmission, but it's actually managing an AOD 4-speed automatic overdrive, which makes this Mustang a great highway cruiser. A factory 3-spoke wheel is always a welcome addition and the stereo is an AM/FM unit designed to fit neatly in the original slot. The trunk is neatly finished with a reproduction mat plus a full-sized spare tire assembly. Since the modern 5.0 liter EFI V8 is just a Windsor-based 302, it slides right between the '65's shock towers without a lot of hassles. Torquey, smooth, and virtually bulletproof, the freshly rebuilt 5.0 works as well here as it did back in 1993 when it was powering a Fox-body pony. Keeping as many OEM components as possible means it's reliable and easy to service with over-the-counter parts, and thanks to Ford's wonderful EEC-IV engine management system, it starts instantly and idles smoothly every time, regardless of the weather. And you'll never get tired of watching the jaws drop when you pop the hood at a show and everyone sees that familiar long-runner intake and serpentine belt drive system. The aforementioned AOD transmission is freshly rebuilt and is the perfect complement to the injected V8. The modern V8 powers the original rear end with fresh 3.50 Yukon gears inside. A custom dual exhaust system was fabricated for the new motor and it has that familiar 5.0 bark. The front suspension is a custom A-arm setup with rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes give it modern stopping power. Cool Torque Thrust wheels are always in fashion and they carry staggered BFGoodrich rubber that fits the car's personality perfectly. Given the price of the conversion and the quality of the paint and interior, we have to call this car a screaming bargain. And like most Mustangs here at Streetside Classics, we doubt it'll last long. Call today!
