1965 Ford Mustang Fastback Additional Info:

Cars like this stunning 1965 Ford Mustang fastback don't happen by accident. It takes planning, vision, and a liquid-cooled credit card to build a car this nice, this fast, and this well-executed. From the gorgeous paint to the rumbling 289 under the hood to the 5-speed transmission, it has been thoroughly massaged and taken to the next level in every possible way.There's really no way to make a Mustang fastback look bad, but wow, the metallic silver paint on this one looks terrific! Sure, it's a modern hue with a ton of metallic and maybe a hint of pearl in it, but it works so well on the vintage fastback shape, giving it a clean, chiseled look. And if you're going to attract all this attention, you had better get the sheetmetal underneath right, too, so a lot of effort went into prepping the bodywork. Gaps are even all around, the doors fit beautifully, and they didn't take any liberties with the tidy original shape. The Shelby-inspired details just reek of speed and performance, and the R-style front bumper, subtle hood scoop, and built-in ducktail spoiler out back are all pieces that will make Mustang fans smile. Blue stripes down the center of the body and on the rocker panels have a cool carbon-fiber look and have helped to create a car that makes people do a double-take and draw them in without even knowing why. It's just beautiful.The largely stock interior has been restored to high standards and shows nary a mark on any of the upholstered surfaces. Look closely, however, and you'll see that the low-back buckets now carry blue and silver seat covers that have a correct vintage look while adding a custom twist. The original gauges have been supplanted by a set of Auto Meter Ultra-Lite dials that give a much better look under the hood while paying homage to the original look. The fast aluminum steering wheel feels great in your hands and takes offers you a better grip than the skinny plastic original, and while the shifter might look like a period Hurst, it's actually linked to a 5-speed Tremec. A Sony AM/FM/CD stereo head unit is in the dash with Polk Audio speakers throughout the passenger compartment. Fastbacks are practical muscle cars, and this car's trunk features a neatly-fitted original-style mat, and please note that the stripes wrap into the jambs, a very cool detail.There's no mistaking the 289 cubic inch small block under the hood, although it's got plenty of upgrades that make it much more 21st century than vintage. There's a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor on top, an aluminum intake manifold, and a set of 351 Cleveland heads that really breathe deeply. MDS supplied the ignition system and distributor and a serpentine belt drive system handles the accessories. For performance under extreme conditions, there's also a big aluminum radiator, as well as a set of long-tube headers to bolster low-end torque. The chassis is nicely detailed, probably to show off that beautiful exhaust system with an X-pipe and a pair of Flowmasters. Four-wheel power disc brakes give it impressive stopping power to match the engine's output and those gorgeous Halibrand-style wheels with staggered 235/45/17 front and 245/35/18 rear tires add just the right period performance vibe.Fully sorted and very nicely finished, this is a resto-mod you can enjoy both on and off the street.
