The first production Mustang rolled off the production line on the 9th March of 1964. It was advertised as "the car to be designed by you", and therefore had a range of interior, exterior and drivetrain options. Buyers had the choice between coupé, convertible and in a later stage fastback body, and different interior options, some of which included front bucket or bench seat, rear bench seat, a sports car style steering wheel and a floor mounted gearshift. Enginewise, there was a choice between a 6-cilinder 170ci (101 bhp), a 260ci V8 (164 bhp), a two barrel 289ci V8 (210 bhp) and from June 1964 on also a 4-barrel V8 offering 271 bhp. The Mustang was an instant success, and after the first production year 418.000 examples were sold !
Here we have a beautiful 1965 car, in the lovely colour of Skylight blue with a stunning interior in dark blue vinyl. Everything looks as it left the factory 50 years ago, and the car comes with some desirable options like an electrical operated hood, automatic gearbox and power steering. This Mustang only had two previous owners : one lady from Newport Beach, CA who bought the car new, and her cousin who bought it many years ago from her and set out
