TRUE GT, A-CODE 289 V8, AUTO, FACTORY A/C, WILWOOD 4-WHL DISCS, VERY NICE, RARE!

If there's one car that we know will always have an enthusiastic following, it's an early 1965 Ford Mustang GT convertible. This A-code 289 car is in its factory-correct black, with a little Hertz GT350 flair added and an A/C interior. So you have an iconic pony car that not only delights everyone who sees it, but also a great driving toy that can still run with some pretty serious hardware.

The code-A Raven Black is a great color to keep this iconic Mustang looking bold, sophisticated, and a true American classic. This one also benefits from clean, straight sheetmetal. The finish is shiny, and the entire package fits together well, so the doors open and close easily and the hood lines up as it should. But the fundamentals are not what's grabbing all of your attention. You're also focused on those cool gold stripes added to make this pony car akin to the legendary Hertz Shelby GT350 Mustangs. The professionally applied color was likely laid when this car received a full professional respray a few years ago (it even has the Shelby Mustang's hood scoop, too!) This is a very cool touch to an already impressive convertible. After all, with the fog lights in front (now golden yellow), GT badging on the fenders, and trumpeted exhaust tips, it's already one desirable GT package Mustang!

Triple black means black exterior, black roof, and black interior. Not every Mustang can pull it off as nicely as this one does. Everyone loves a "Pony" package that adds the upgraded luxury interior with the prancing horses embedded into the seats. These look factory fresh, and fantastically paired with the matching upgraded cup holder center console in the middle. The GT's five-dial gauge panel is always nice to see in '65, which offers a sportier look and holds a complete set of gauges. A custom AM/FM stereo looks factory-correct, but actually has a modern iPod/aux hookup in the glovebox. There are even provisions for air conditioning to keep the car cool in all weather. When it does come time to put the roof up, this has been upgraded to a Haartz top, which is the company that makes all the material for brand new convertibles today. So this does a far better job of keeping out water, and looking crisper over the years, than anything that came from the factory in the 60s.

Under the hood is a true favorite of Mustang fans. It's an A-code 289 cubic-inch V8 that the consignor has been told is original to the car. It features a four-barrel carburetor and 225 horsepower, ranking this Mustang high on the desirability and rarity scale. A chrome air cleaner was part of the GT package, but the Cobra valve covers are another salute to the Hertz theme. The engine bay presentation has a great look, right down to the original tag on the A/C compressor. All signs of good maintenance means this desirable V8 fires up readily, and the dual exhaust has a deep rumble that tells you there's an extra kick of power. This convertible was clearly meant to be driven, and that's thanks to great features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and a nice upgrade to a Wilwood four-wheel disc brake package. Add in the 17-inch torque thrust-style alloy wheels and modern low-profile tires, and this is a total package that will make you want to take the long way home.

It's a '65 Mustang GT convertible with all the desirable original components, and the all the right upgrades. This is the best attention-grabbing, performance first-year pony droptop you could ever ask for. And since there's only one up for grabs, you might want to hurry up and call now!
