EXCLUSIVE: 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

Reader Mark D bought this Mustang to turn into a nice driver that he could enjoy and take to shows. He’s done a ton of work to make it a really nice car and he’s had his fun with it. It looks to be in beautiful shape and has some sweet parts on it. Mark has decided he’d like to get into playing with British cars, so the Mustang needs to go! If you’d love to give it a good home, take a closer look and contact Mark with any questions via the form below.

From Mark D – I found the car on Classic & Antique Trader in British Columbia in 2007. The owner had passed away and in talking with his widow she said he was a businessman and had used the car to run to the local golf club in Maple Ridge, BC. I purchased the car to a) enjoy my 1st old Mustang and b) to go to car shows within Alberta and British Columbia. This sent me in the direction of creating a car that had the reliability of a newer car and one that looked nice enough that I could take it to car shows. One show that comes to mind was the 2010 International Mustang #31 meet, where I was a Class Winner! For Alberta car shows I would drive it to them and for BC show I would trailer it behind my RV, with the family, so millage overall is low as I only used it for show and shines!

While I have spent a lot more than I am asking for it now and had it insurance appraised ($40k) and have kept most of the receipts over the years have bought parts in CA and USA, I want to see it go to a good home. Overall, I believe I have done a great job keeping the old girl on the road, I believe the next owner can have some fun driving, showing the car and also spend some time taking it to the next level with a new set of eyes (or whatever upgrades they’d like to make to it)! The car comes with Mustang Magazines I have collected over the years, stainless steel class winner plate and a few Ford Mustang historical books/manuals. I’m selling it to get into British cars for fun!

List of what all has been done
New 302 Ford crate motor
New disc brakes from SSBC
New tilt steering wheel and steering from Flaming River
New automatic transmission with AOD from B&M
New 9″ rear end (389-391 ratio)
New wiring throughout plus headlights
New exhaust system

While it might not be an original survivor, this Mustang looks like a great classic to own. Mark has already done all the hard work to sort it and make it a fun driver. Since it isn’t original, there are endless options for more upgrades or modifications. And, you won’t have to feel bad driving it the way it was meant to be!

    Nice looking ‘Stang! The color, the rims…got some attitude under the hood. Must be at least a little rough letting something like this go with all the time and money invested.
    Hope you enjoy the British car scene, from what I heard they always need something fiddled with. Good luck!

    My brother in Georgia buit a 66 a decade or so back for his daughter’s graduation present. He spent over $30,000 on the restoration and paint job.She drives it to work occasionally, but apparently prefers her late model Jeep.
    God bless America

    John. If your brother spent $30k a decade ago restoring a coup like this he was under water at the time. You can still buy a nice one for about $25k today. Not taking anything away from this Mustang, it’s beautiful. I just don’t see it bring $30k plus.

    You’re right he was upside down, but he wasn’t concerned about that. The car had belonged to a pro basketball player and his daughter really wanted the car. It needed everything but was complete. It was a full frame off rotisserie nut and bolt back to factory specs with an expensive emron paint job. Engine, trans, and rear end fully rebuilt, all wiring and lights replaced. When done it was essentially a brand new 66 Mustang coupe. It’s still a show winning car to this day. It’s always kept in a climate controlled garage.
    God bless America
