Description

The car presented here is a superb original and unrestored 1965 Mustang Fastback from the first year of manufacture making it one of the very earliest fastbacks, and still features the original Mustang 2+2 badging. Ford extended manufacture to three plants to meet demand and opened the Metuchen, New Jersey plant on 1st February 1965. This car is from that first production run and is one of a total of just 71,303 built across all three Ford plants that year, so something of a rare beast, especially here in Austria.

It looks fabulous in its original Vintage Honey Ivy Gold coachwork and is believed to have covered just 111000 kilometers from new. The car comes from one of the 'dry' States and appears extremely solid. It has the roaring 289 V8 engine and then transmission works very well, having had a recent service. With its gleaming paintwork and interior, and excellent tires on big chrome wheels, there is a lot to recommend this early classic Mustang, particularly at such a sensible guide.
