SUPERCLEAN A-CODE 2+2, 289/225 HP V8, 4-SPEED, LONGTUBES, FLOWMASTERS, MAGS!!

Early Mustang fastbacks (AKA the 2+2) have recently joined that rarefied club in which cars with steel roofs are worth more than the convertibles. This 1965 Mustang fastback is put together just the way you would have done it in '65, too, with a fantastic color combination, an A-code 289, and a set of Shelby-style stripes just to make it special.

Although it was a late arrival to the pony car party, the 2+2 became the most iconic symbol of Mustang performance in pretty short order. Familiar Wimbledon White fastbacks started dominating at race tracks around the world, and even street cars like this were respected and admired by almost everyone. With a nice-looking repaint in the original code M Wimbledon White, this fastback still looks great and proves that class never goes out of style. The blue Lemans stripes along the center of the car emphasize the car's performance aspects and give it a period-correct performance look, especially with the addition of a small hood scoop and Plexiglas quarter windows, which were a Shelby signature look. All the correct trim is there, including the familiar running pony emblem up front (including the 1965-only crosshairs), shiny chrome bumpers, and a GT-style rear valence with louvered exhaust tips poking through. Of course, there's that all-important '289' badge on the front fenders, which means there's plenty of power to match this car's looks.

The attractive blue vinyl interior is a wonderful contrast to the Wimbledon White paint, and yes, this is how it was outfitted from the factory (code 22 is Blue vinyl). Of course, all the soft surfaces are new, including seat covers and carpets and with the fold-down rear seat, cargo space is quite useful. A center console adds a sporty attitude to the fastback along with a wood-rimmed steering wheel and matching knob for the 4-speed shifter. The five-gauge instrument panel was part of the GT equipment group and didn't become standard equipment until 1966, but it looks right here and all the gauges are in excellent shape with clear markings and lenses. A simple AM/FM radio lives in the center of the dash and the heater controls and fan are surprisingly effective. In back, the trunk is lined with a correct plaid mat and carries a full-sized spare tire with matching cover.

Everyone knows there's no real way to tell if an early Mustang is "numbers-matching" but this one does carry a correct A-code 289, which means a 4-barrel carburetor and 225 horsepower. They didn't take any liberties with the detailing, so it wears simple chrome valve covers and a recent coat of Ford Blue engine enamel. Someone has added a Monte Carlo bar and export brace, which really work well to improve the handling and feel of the car, and there's a big radiator up front to keep it cool. The engine is backed by a quick-shifting 4-speed manual gearbox and out back there's a 3.00 gearset so it cruises easily on the highway. Long-tube headers and a new dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers provides the right muscle car soundtrack, and you'll be pleased with how neat and tidy things are underneath. Early Magnum 500 wheels always look awesome, with this car wearing a set of 205/70/14 Kumho radials that fill the fenders perfectly.

A fun car that will only become more desirable in the coming years, this Mustang is a turn-key hobby car that everyone can appreciate. Call today!
