1965 Ford Mustang 2+2 Fastback
First released in 1964 the iconic Ford Mustang created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable and therefore it needed to share much of it's engineering with an existing Ford product. They decided to base the Mustang on the smallest US Ford at the time, the Falcon.
The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘notchback' coupe or convertible. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon. Compared to the Falcon its cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front end and shorter rear design, and it is those proportions and details, like the running horse in the grill, the cut away side panel and the three section rear lights that have resulted in the Mustang enjoying iconic status.
This striking Fastback Mustang has recently been subject to a full body restoration at a cost of £8,500 with photographic evidence documenting the work undertaken.All chrome mouldings front and back are new including side chrome drip rails and door handles. The interior was restored some two years ago in America and is in excellent condition.
Prior to its import, engine work has been carried out on the car. We understand from the previous owner that the work undertaken includes a new Ford Motorsports 289ci engine block built to 10:1 compression fitted with SCAT cast crankshaft, Forged rods, Keith Black flat top pistons and Comp Cams XE247hr roller camshaft along with Comp Cams Roller Rockers.
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum cylinder heads have also been fitted along with an Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake manifold mated to an Edelbrock 800cfm carb. The Dyno sheet available is showing a healthy 279bhp with 308 ft-lb of torque @ 5916 rpm.
The engine is mated to a new Ford Motorsports T5Z 5 speed manual transmission with Ford Motorsports competition clutch. Power is transmitted to the road through a Currie Enterprises 8" TSD posi/trac-loc differential with a 3:55 ratio.
Fitted to the car are Tubular headers and dual exhausts combined with Flowmaster 50's mufflers, giving the car a fantastic growl!
The running gear of the car features recently refreshed uprated suspension and brakes all round with a Global West welded in sub frame. Tasteful aftermarket Halibrand style wheels have been fitted which really finish the car off giving it a great stance.
One the coolest cars ever made this iconic muscle car is begging for the 279 horses to be unleashed.
