The brainchild of Lee Iacocca, the Ford Mustang was branded as the first 'Pony Car' and was born out of a need to compete with the flood of European sports cars coming into the USA in the Sixties. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9th, 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on April 17th.
This stunning 1965 Mustang Coupé, or Notchback as it is commonly referred to, was restored in 2018 to an incredibly high standard by its then owner and proprietor of a well-known Porsche restoration establishment. Restored for his own use, the car was fully stripped and treated to a bare metal respray in red with racing stripes to emulate the GT350. The aesthetics of this car alone were not all that were to be treated with such care as he then decided that the 302ci V8 block engine should be freshly rebuilt with new valves, pistons, springs, billet roller rockers and water pump.
The handling of any Mustang is always a point of much conjecture and, as the car was to be used on UK roads, upgrades such as a complete front wishbone suspension replacement, power steering and power disc brakes were added and Koni adjustable shock absorbers were fitted to lowered springs. Brand new 4-Barrel Holley Hooker long tube headers and straight through pipes resonate the V8 grumble and the power is put down by new 8x15 American Racing wheels and Goodrich tyres via a T5 Borg Warner Cosworth gearbox with uprated clutch and Billet rose jointed quick shift gearbox. Shortly after completion, the car was seen by our vendor who, taken aback by the quality of the restoration, offered a price that could not be refused, and it has resided in his private collection ever since. Offered with a UK V5 certificate, workshop manual and MoT test certificate until October 2020, this is a stunning car that would cost far in excess of £50,000 to recreate to this standard; viewing is highly recommended.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
