Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this classic 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. This car has been restored in its striking original Caspian Blue metallic  and is complimented by red interior with white pony/luxury upholstery, a very unique combination. According to the trim plate, this car was Caspian Blue with Red Interior. Power comes from a previously rebuilt 289 4bbl V8, although originally powered by a 200 I-6. The transmission is a stout C4 3-speed automatic. This car is equipped with GT features such as trumpet exhaust tips, valence, and fog lamps. The convertible top is power-operated and in great shape. This car is a pleasure to drive and shows well. The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the location for many of our photos of this classic '65 Mustang convertible. Take to the ground and visit our friends at the historic museum or make your way to Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' showroom, located minutes away.

The exterior showcases a repaint of the original Caspian Blue color. This dark metallic blue color shows well over the straight body. The current owners purchased this Mustang in 1995 from a local gentleman in Plano, TX. According to that owner they would become the 4th owners of the car. The 3rd owner had installed the rebuilt 289 engine and also a new radiator. The mileage at that time was 38,244.

The interior shows very well. This car was ordered in Caspian Blue with red vinyl interior. The interior showcases red with white door panel inserts and white luxury seat upholstery front to back. The 289 cubic inch 4bbl. V8 runs strong. Induction upgrades include an Edelbrock Performer 289 intake manifold. The inner fenders, core support, and firewall steel shows well throughout. The VIN stamping is clean on the inner fenderwell. The alternator was recently replaced. The air conditioning compressor does not have a belt and the system is in need of repair/service, although intact.

The brightwork is intact throughout and in very good condition, including the bumpers, trim, and emblems. The GT-type trumpet dual exhaust exit through the rear valence pan. Be sure to listen to the rumble in our video. This Mustang sounds great. The 14-inch factory steel wheels are fitted with wire spinner hubcaps all around and 205/75R14 radial tires. The original identification plate is intact. This Mustang was ordered in Caspian blue with red crinkle vinyl interior. It was originally powered by a 200 inline-6 and has a 2.83:1 rear axle ratio. The original DSO is Chicago, Illinois and the build date is September 3rd, 1964.

A Sony 10-disc CD changer and Alpine amplifier have been mounted in the trunk along with the correct trunk mat, jack with pouch, spare tire wheel with cover, and tool bag. The white convertible top was replaced in 2001 as mentioned previously, and is in excellent condition. The power mechanism is fast in operation. We have a convertible top boot that snaps into place. The glass is in very good condition as is the surrounding trim. The fuel tank has been previously replaced along with the shocks. The flooring and subframe looks to be in good condition front to back. The Caspian Blue paint has an excellent shine and curb appeal. The speedometer is functional. The mileage is believed original to the car. The door panels have been replaced and show well. The door undersides are also solid.
