Description by

This is the 1965 Mustang that I recently sold. It was a V8 289 coupe, with a rare front bench seat.

    A '65 Mustang! I learned to drive on my mother's baby blue '67. they don't make them like they used to but that new Mustang sure looks nice. My '67 (which became mine in my senior year of high school) had the bucket seats, not a bench. It was really nice. Same 289 as your '65.

    If you don't mind me asking, did you get a good price for your '65? It looks like it was in great condition. How many miles did it have?

    I got a fabulous price, considering that it had been garaged for 4 years. Since I wasn't about to bring it to New York, my father was afraid of the car, and TONGA was afraid of what I would do to him if he wrecked it, it was slowly dying. So, it killed me, but I had my dad sell it. I made money on the deal, so when I get back to CA, I can work on another one.

    It had over 150,000 miles on the original block. The engine had been rebuild twice, and was mechanically a champ. The dash needed to be finished, it had no radio, and the glove box door never fit quite right after the make-over.

    Sounds good. The cars built today just don't hold up as well IMO.

    Unfortunately I think most of these cars that are this old have some similar stories (regarding yours having no radio, needing dash re-do). My '67 was a victim of a psycho who my dad had to fire at his company. Luckly no one got hurt but we all got a good scare. Dude came by the house when my dad was home for lunch and threw a Dixie cup full of lit gasoline in the open driver's side window. Burnt the interior nicely and had to be replaced by insurance.

    When I see one, nicely taken care of, on the street now I have real respect.
