mustang 65

by from Oz, qld sunshine coast on December 30, 2010

Simple to fix and maintain, parts readily available. Great cruiser and ok on fuel, not the fastest vehicle but quite a head turner.

I have had four 65-66 Mustangs. These are without-a-doubt great cars. The 289 engine gives very good performance and decent fuel economy. The styling of all three bodies (coupe,fastback and convert) is excellent. Comfort is good along with excellent reliabiity. Considering purchasing another one.

I've owned several vintage Mustangs. The 1965 year was rather uncomfortable to drive. The steering wheel is set way too close to the driver. If you adjust the seat to fix this, you're way to far from the pedals. The square dash in the 65 is terrible. The round gaged 66 is better. If you buy an A or C code expect that the stock motor isn't very fast or powerful. Luckily, just swap on a set of headers and an electronic ignition and you'll easily have another 35 horsepower. Of course you'll need to swap in a fuel cell to replace the original gas tank. Well, unless you want to burn to death in a rear end collision. Overall, these cars are dirt cheap right now, and a pretty decent buy.
