1965 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang is a series of American automobiles manufactured by Ford. In continuous production since 1964, the Mustang is currently the longest-produced Ford nameplate. Currently in its seventh generation, it is the fifth-best selling Ford car nameplate. The namesake of the “pony car” automobile segment, the Mustang was developed as a highly styled line of sporty coupes and convertibles derived from existing model lines, initially distinguished by “long hood, short deck” proportions.

Originally predicted to sell 100,000 vehicles yearly, the 1965 Mustang became the most successful vehicle launch since the 1927 Model A. Introduced on April 17, 1964 (16 days after the Plymouth Barracuda), over 400,000 units were sold in its first year; the one-millionth Mustang was sold within two years of its launch. In August 2018, Ford produced the 10-millionth Mustang; matching the first 1965 Mustang, the vehicle was a 2019 Wimbledon White convertible with a V8 engine.

The Ford Mustang began production five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The early production versions are often referred to as “1964 1/2 models”, but all Mustangs were advertised, VIN coded and titled by Ford as 1965 models, though minor design updates in August 1964 at the formal start of the 1965 production year contribute to tracking 1964 1/2 production data separately from 1965 data. With production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan, on March 9, 1965; the new car was, on 14 April 1964, first sold to the public, at a Ford dealership in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada before it was even introduced

This Mustang came in for diagnosing the power steering, engine including compression test, we will be replacing the chrome valve covers, weatherstripping and the rear bumper. We will also be doing a completely new paint job.

We have removed the trunk and driver’s door weatherstripping.

We have removed the tires and drums to check out the brakes.

We have begun tearing down the interior of the Mustang and removed all the glass.
