1965 Ford Mustang in Prairie Bronze, Code 120 hp Engine (200 cu in. 3.3 L inline 6), utomatic transmission, omplete restoration.
Backstory:This Mustang is one of the Late ‘65’s manufactured in Dearborn, I on March 15, 965, nd first sold in Indianapolis, N, here it lived its whole life until 2014. I bought the car from an old gentleman who kept it in a barn under a tarp for decades, s his wife was not strong enough to drive it. Although thrashed by time, he Mustang never did acquire serious midwest rust, nd has never seen an accident. A perfect candidate for restoration.
I imported the car into California and completed a comprehensive total restoration of the vehicle along with Mustang specialists throughout Los Angeles. It has been affectionately named ‘Indy” as a conclusion to the story.
Restoration:From day 1, he objective of this restoration was to adhere to originality; we wanted a truly original Prairie Bronze T code Mustang. 1 year and 6 months later, ur restoration is complete with only 3 augmentations to originality: A new front end disc brake conversion (for safety), lectronic ignition (for dependability) and inset parchment and Palomino door panels to augment the parchment headliner. Else, he Mustang looks as it did when it left the plant in Michigan, 1 years ago. There are a small number of parts on the vehicle that we did not replace during the restoration due to the acceptable disposition and inconspicuous location of the matter, uch as leaf springs.
Mechanical systems:Fuel: The entire fuel route is new, rom the gas tank itself, traight through to the carburetor. A point worth noting is that this Mustang has an original Autolite 1100 Carburetor, nd not a Chinese reproduction. They are difficult to come by.
Electrical: A majority of the wire loom in this Mustang was unscathed by time and weather. The battery, olenoid, lternator, oil, istributor, ensors, nd electronic ignition are all new and part of the restoration. Additionally, modern stereo made by Retro Sound (Zuma) was installed, hich is a precise replica in appearance to the original Mustang Stereo. These Bluetooth / USB / iPod enabled stereos are amazing, nd no modification to the dashboard is required, ncluding the Pioneer speakers made for the vintage Mustangs.
Environmental: A total workover of the heating and ventilation is completed, s part of the restoration. The entire system is new and functions normally.
Interior: Easily, he most special aspect of this Mustang. The interior was meticulously worked back to originality, Palomino color scheme; every aspect was brought down to metal, reated, orrectly painted, eupholstered, nd exacted to mimic the original interior. There are no seat belts in the rear seats, s was the case when new. This is an easy option to add should you be interested. Incredibly, his classic is very quiet in the passenger compartment, an easily regulate temperature, nd doesn’t smell like fuel. The trunk has also been completely restored, ncluding the spare tire and accessories.
Engine:We purchased and installed a remanufactured engine with an extensive warranty which was installed in November of 2015. At the time of installation, he odometer was frozen and unreadable, nd so it was reset with the zero mile engine. As of today (April 26, 016) the vehicle’s mileage is 1,160 miles, nd the engine break in period is over. The core is fantastic, o leaks, olid compression, nd clean plugs.
With the engine install, e put in a new radiator, ater pump, il pump, ensors, CV, ir Cleaner, orque converter, tarter, ables, nd mounts. Additionally, he transmission was rebuilt prior to the engine install. A complete re-working of the engine compartment was completed in this process to include correct paint colors, ecals, eals, oses and clamps, tc.
Additional notes:The tires (Hankook white walls) are all new with the same mileage on them as the engine, ith exception of the spare; it’s a full size, ut not a new tire, et safety checked. The differential was rebuilt, ncluding a complete flushing and reworking of the housing, xles, nd hubs; new bearing and bearing seals were installed. The entire underside of the car was media blasted and coated prior to installation of the drivetrain, nd a completely new exhaust system installed (nothing fancy, ust what was used in the original configuration). The car also has all new front and rear shocks, ransmission mounts, nd emergency brake assembly.
The exterior paint is new, f course. It was painted in Covina, alifornia by an individual with 35 years of automotive paint experience in February of 2016. Took him a while, ut he knocked it out of the park, sing Ford’s formula from the door code for Prairie Bronze. We did not spend 15 thousand painting this car like some would do. It is a very nice paint job, ut we didn't go after painting all of the weird difficult to get to crevices under the trunk lid, tc. Those surfaces were fine to begin with. The work was color sanded and buffed, new windshield and seal was installed, s well as a total chrome package. The Mustang has the 60’s era California black plates on it with current registration, lean title, o issues.
Some serious restoration folks have been super critical of the underside of this car. Ironically, hat's an aspect that we spent a lot of time focusing on. It is cleaner than my daily driver, 2015 Civic, hile the Mustang is 51 years old.
Many of the parts on this Mustang include a transferrable warranty. I keep an extensive file on this car which includes receipts, aintenance logs, ources, tc. All of this goes to the buyer, long with a box of relevant parts, aints, wo sets of keys (door locks keyed to the ignition, runk keyed independent of the ignition) and a new car cover (although I have to admit I cut the antenna hole in the car cover on the wrong side, o there is a small hole-
More and more Mustangs are disappearing every year, nd many are being restored incorrectly. It’s to the point now where you can buy a brand new replica for $90,000 because people want them still. The trick is to own one, now how to drive one, nd you will surely have an investment on your hands. Everyone know that the value of these cars will go through the ceiling over the next 10 to 20 years. So here’s your chance. We did this car right, nd we put our soul into it.
We will help you figure out the shipping for this vehicle wherever you may be, owever, e do not want to get into the details of shipping internationally. Hawaii is no problem, aving organized this a couple of times in the past.
I strongly encourage you to see the vehicle in person before a purchase is made, bviously, ike most vehicle sellers do, r send your mechanic. And I would have no problem discussing the car with you over the phone at length before the commitment to a trip like that should be made.
This is an as-is sale of course. Even though the car is essentially new, t is still 51 years old. Due to the nature of such a transaction, e do not wish to take returns for this sale.
