IF YOU HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THAT SPECIAL CLASSIC FORD MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ONE THAT TRULY STANDS OUT FROM THE REST THEN THIS GORGEOUS ’65 IVY GREEN METALLIC MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE MAY BE THE PONY YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!! ( THE 2 RED MUSTANGS PICTURED ABOVE ARE SOLD)  I KNOW THIS CAR EXTREMELY WELL AS I ACTUALLY SOLD IT TO A GENTLEMAN IN COLORADO ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO.  IN MY SEARCH FOR GREAT MUSTANGS RECENTLY I LOCATED AN AD FOR THIS IN SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR AND AFTER SPEAKING TO THE OWNER FOR A WHILE I REALIZED THAT THIS WAS THE SAME CAR I HAD SOLD TO HIM 6 YEARS AGO.  HE HAD ONLY PUT ABOUT 1000 MILES ON THE CAR IN THE 6 YEARS HE OWNED IT AND DECIDED HE WAS READY FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I KNEW THIS WAS A GREAT CAR AND QUICKLY BOUGHT IT BACK AND HAD IT TRANSPORTED BACK TO GEORGIA. WHEN IT ARRIVED I WAS AMAZED THAT IT LOOKED JUST AS GOOD AS IT DID 6 YEARS AGO.  ONE TURN OF THE KEY AND I QUICKLY REMEMBERED HOW GREAT THIS CAR SOUNDED AND HOW STRONG IT WAS.

WAIT, THE STORY GETS EVEN BETTER!! I THEN LISTED THIS MUSTANG FOR SALE AND WITHIN 7 DAYS SOLD IT TO A GREAT CAR GUY FROM OHIO WHO HAD OWNED SEVERAL CLASSIC MUSTANGS OVER THE YEARS AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS ONE.  HE WAS IN FLORIDA AT THE TIME BUT HAD IT SHIPPED TO HIS SON’S HOUSE IN OHIO. WHEN HE WAS HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS HE DROVE IT A BIT AND HAD A FEW NICE UPGRADES DONE. OVER THE WINTER MONTHS HE GOT THE ITCH FOR MORE OF AN EXOTIC CAR AND DECIDED HE WANTED TO FIND A CLASSIC FERRARI OR ASTON MARTIN. A FEW WEEKS AGO HE CALLED ME TO SEE IF I WAS INTERESTING IN BUYING THE CAR BACK FROM HIM. WITHIN A WEEK THE CAR WAS BACK IN MY WAREHOUSE AND I ACTUALLY ALSO BOUGHT A COOL 1953 WILLYS MILITARY JEEP FROM HIM AS WELL.  HE NOW HAS THE SPACE FOR HIS NEW EXOTIC CAR. I HAVE NOW HAD THE PLEASURE OF OWNING THIS CAR 3 TIMES AND I KNOW THAT THE NEXT OWNER IS GOING TO BE EQUALLY AS EXCITED WHEN IT ARRIVES IN THEIR DRIVEWAY…..COULD THAT BE YOU?? I WILL DO MY BEST TO PROVIDE ENOUGH PICTURES, A VIDEO OF THE CAR RUNNING, AND AN HONEST DESCRIPTION TO HELP YOU DETERMINE IF THIS STALLION BELONGS IN YOUR STABLE.  IT MAY TAKE A FEW MINUTES FOR ALL THE PICTURES AND INFO TO LOAD BUT I PROMISE IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT…SIT BACK AND ENJOY!!

This awesome 1965 Mustang Convertible spent most of its life in Georgia and North Carolina before it went to Florida in 2001. The gentleman I purchase it from 6 years ago believed he was the third owner and this car was his pride and joy and he was very sad that he had to sell it due to a financial situation.  He had the restoration done in 2001 and told me the body was extremely solid and close to rust free when he started. He spared no expense and the work was completed by a Mustang restoration specialist.  The paint work alone was close to $10,000 and the paint quality is still fantastic!!  He noted that he believes the car has all of its original body panels with the exception of the trunk lid which had a dent and was replaced.  He had the car painted in its original “R” code Ivy Green Metallic color and it is a stunning color that glitters in the sunlight and looks almost black in the shade.  We had the the paint wet sanded and buffed out since it had not been done in 6 years and it looks amazing.  Body panels are extremely straight and aside from a few minor rock chips that have been touched up the body is near flawless. This is definitely a car you can take to all of your local shows and even the regional mustang specialty shows and you should come home with trophies if that is what you enjoy.  Chrome trim all looks fantastic! I have noticed a very tiny bubble at the edge of the chrome trim that goes around the back of the convertible top.  You probably will not be able to see any of these in the pictures and may not even notice them up close in person but i like to point out the flaws I have seen. None of these flaws take away from the high quality of this Mustang and given that the restoration was done 11 years ago this Pony still shows very strong.  Here is a walk around tour of the body:

Complimenting the Ivy Green Metallic exterior is a beautiful Palomino standard interior that was also completely redone 11 years ago and still looks fabulous.  The original interior color wad Ivy gold but I think you will agree that the Palomino has a richer look to it and was a good decision. Door panels, seats, dash pad all look close to brand new. Carpeting looks excellent with just some minor stains on one side of the rear carpeting that are covered by the carpeted  floor mats. Steering wheel looks new with no cracks. Gauges are all crystal clear and the current odometer reading is just over 1600 miles. When the car was restored a new reconditioned speedometer was installed and they set the odometer at 0. At that time the old odometer read 28,000 miles which was believed to be 128,000 miles. Therefore the car has only had slightly over 1600 miles put on in the past 11 years. The gentleman who I sold this car to in October last year removed the original AM Radio and installed a vintage am/fm digital system from Custom Autosound. This unit fits right in the original hole and the original AM Radio will be included with the car. ( you will see some of the interior pics still show the original radio)  All of the gauges and lights are working correctly including the courtesy light in the center console.  The Factory Air Conditioning unit was completely reconditioned by Classic Air and switched over to R-34 using a Sanden Compressor kit. Windows all roll up and down nicely. There is a small rock chip down low on the passenger side of the windshield.  Overall the interior looks close to showroom new. 

I always recommend driving a classic Mustang Convertible with the top down any chance you get but it is nice to know that the White Power Convertible top also looks great and functions perfectly.  Rear window is very clear and the top seals nicely. Great looking Palomino colored boot cover snaps on when the top is down. Take a look at the pics below:

This Pony doesn’t just look great….she also performs great with plenty of giddy up!!! This is an original C-code 289 2bbl car that has been upgraded with an original Ford 4V intake and 4 bbl Autolite Carburetor. The motor is very strong and pulls hard and smoothly. I do not have any record of a complete rebuild but it is evident that the motor has been gone through and it performs great. According to the gentleman I bought it from in Florida the transmission was rebuilt with a performance shift kit installed. Distributor was upgraded to electronic ignition. New 4 core radiator with new hoses and belts.New Alternator and regulator. New fuel pump. New water pump. New front and rear brake lines and new wheel cylinders all around.  New master cylinder. New Power steering pump. Complete new front suspension including control arms, tie rods, power steering slave cylinder and bushings. New rear leaf springs and bushings.New shocks all around. All motor mounts replaced.  This car has Power Steering and Power Brakes and drives like a dream….easy to steer and easy to stop! Newer BFG Radial TA tires on the original 14″ Styled steel wheels with green pony center caps to match the car.  The engine bay has also been nicely detailed and you will be proud to pop the hood at any car show or cruise in. At time of restoration the owner also added a set of Tri-y headers that breath out brand new dual exhaust with turbo mufflers installed by the guy who bought it from me several months ago which give the car a Great soft Pony rumble.  Have a look and also below is a video so you can hear this Pony start up and running.

HERE IS A SHORT VIDEO SO YOU CAN HEAR THIS PONY START UP AND RUNNING…TURN UP YOUR VOLUME! (CLICK ARROW TO START)

As you would expect from such a beautifully restored car the undercarriage is also rock solid including the floorpans and torque boxes which appear to be original. Inside of the trunk is also extremely solid and detailed with the correct rink mat, spare tire and cover. The Vin # is stamped on the drivers side inner fender and door tag attached to the drivers side door.  You will see that some of the pics below still show it with the exhaust that was on it when I sold it a few months ago. Some of the pics will show the new exhaust that was recently installed with brand new turbo mufflers. This is a very high quality Mustang Convertible and is sure to please the next owner!!
