Dust Covered 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

Ford Motor Company started the Pony car wars in 1964 with the introduction of the Mustang. This 1965 Mustang is for sale in San Antonio, Texas for $5,000 and is listed here on Facebook Marketplace. It was found in a garage covered with dust and flat tires, but been washed off and sitting on blocks.

A whopping 559,451 Mustangs were built in 1965. That is an impressive production total, especially when compared to 2018 when 113,066 Mustangs were built. This car left the factory with the standard 200 cubic inch 6-cylinder that produced 120 horsepower.

The average price of a Mustang was an affordable $2,500 in 1965. That was probably a lot more than it seems today. A gallon of gas was only 31 cents and a stamp was a nickel in 1965.

The owner states that the car runs and the blue and white interior looks original. You Mustang experts can let us know if that’s really the case.

This design has aged well and it will probably not go out of style.  The asking price seems reasonable for a car that claims to be free of rot and can be restored to stock or modified to your liking.

Restoring this classic would surely bring some smiles with it and you would probably get stopped at every gas station to hear other owner’s stories of their days behind the wheel of their Mustang.

    By the time you get it looking and running good you would be better off buying Marks car and just enjoy it.

    “$2,500 in 1965. That was probably a lot more than it seems today” It sure was. $2,500 in 1965 is $20,000 today, and $0.31/gal gas equals $2.50 today. Both prices seem reasonable in today’s market. Wages have gone up accordingly as well. As for the stamp, that 1965 nickel is now worth 40 cents. A regular stamp is a buck. Draw your own conclusions there.
    My point is that folks wax nostalgic for the seeming low prices of the past, yet most things “cost” the same as they always did. See for yourselves at https://www.dollartimes.com/inflation/
    BTW…great car. Much nicer shape than the ’65 and ’68 289 coupes I had in 1981, both victims of NYC road salt.

    I agree with Billieg…although I like these cars a lot, they are a dime a dozen! Buy one completed!
    Now if it were a convertible in same condition even with same engine I would be all over it! “For same price”
