200 CI Inline 6
PRICED-TO-MOVE PONY, 200 CID I6, AUTO, ALL-STOCK, VERY CLEAN IN & OUT, TURN-KEY
Early Mustangs are just as awesome today as they were in 1965 when Ford sold more than a million of them. Six cylinder cars like this 1965 coupe make for fantastic entry-level hobby cars simply because they're stylish, reliable, and parts are incredibly easy to get and affordable. There aren't many cars that are more beloved than the first-generation Mustang.
Wearing a coat of code J Rangoon Red, this handsome coupe looks far more expensive than it is. Judging by the condition of the bodywork, this car was never a winter weather beater and since 1965 it has probably led a pretty good life. Nice, straight sheetmetal got a thorough once-over years ago to ensure that it was straight, then it was repainted using materials that give it a very correct look. It's showing some signs of age and use, of course, but a professional buff would really wake this car up and pay big dividends. Classic first-generation Mustang details like the "corral" grille and Mustang emblems on the front fenders mean that it was done to factory specs, which is kind of refreshing given how easy these cars are to modify and how popular various "clones" are today. There's an accessory trunk rack out back, the front bumper still shines up nicely, and the white vinyl top is in good condition and offers some bright contrast that looks great.
The unusual and tasteful color combination is the perfect period complement to the Mustang's low-key personality, and the red and white guts in this Mustang look absolutely fantastic. A few original bits might be showing their age but the rest is nicely, with reproduction seat covers, carpets that show minimal fading and wear, and door panels with correct detailing and hardware. The instrument panel is the early style with a wide speedometer flanked by auxiliary gauges on either end, all framed by the original deep-dish steering wheel, now wrapped in leather. Cars like this were typical daily drivers for many folks, so that explains the relative lack of frills, although it does have an AM/FM stereo radio, and the 3-speed automatic transmission is a willing travel partner. Even the trunk is reasonably-sized for your gear and as you can see, it's in outstanding condition with a correct mat and full-sized spare tire.
Don't make the mistake of underestimating the T-code 200 cubic inch inline-six under the hood. This engine was a mainstay of Ford products throughout the '60s for good reason: it's smooth, durable, and quite thrifty out on the open road. In today's climate, it kind of makes sense, doesn't it? It still cruises at modern highway speeds and pulls down fuel mileage that any modern Mustang would be pleased to own. Recently detailed under the hood, it's wearing Ford Red engine enamel on the tinwork and black on the block, a correct air cleaner and carburetor, and a fresh alternator for reliability. It fires quickly and easily with its characteristic grumble from the single exhaust, and pulls the lightweight little coupe around with aplomb. New front suspension components have been installed and there's a correct transverse muffler for the exhaust system, so it sounds right. Original steel wheels with original hubcaps and 185/75/14 whitewall radials complete the authentic look.
No other car in the world is as beloved as Ford's pony, and you can find out why for a very reasonable price. Call today!
