For serious, cash buyers – for sale is an outstanding 1965 Ford Mustang. I’ve owned it around 7 years now, and since the resto work I’ve put around 1,500-2,000 miles on it. I purchased it as a project car from someone in Boise, ID. It had been sitting for 2+ years, so it was in much worse condition than I had hoped. That lead me to restore almost everything mechanical / electrical on the car in 2012/13. I thought I’d do it myself, but because of time constraints, I shipped it to a reputable shop that had experience with classics & had them do A LOT of work on it. They are ASE-certified master techs, and complete gear-heads. I trust & have experienced that they did great work. This mustang always turns heads, sounds mean, & is fast. I have NEVER drag-raced it, not even on the street against another car. I just cruise around in it. 🙂

This is no show queen, but it is about 90% restored & a lot is like-new. Here’s the gist: It could use (but not mandatory) some minor interior work + minor dash cluster work (2-3 gauges need to be replaced), and if you really wanted to go the extra mile, some minor body work. Everything else is almost new. It’ll make a great classic for another owner.

I will disclose everything I know about this vehicle & it’s condition. It has undergone extensive work. It is in great mechanical order & drives great, but realize it is a classic car. As such, I cannot warranty the vehicle. It is being sold as-is. That said, I’m an open book & want you to get your money’s worth. Ask me questions. Come see the car.

This is a great classic, and has a really nice paint scheme. It sounds great & is fun to drive. I’ve done extensive work to it! I’m embarrassed to even say how much $$$ & time went into this car. PLEASE – NO LOW-BALLERS. If you don’t have cash in the bank, don’t waste our time. I am not in a rush to sell it. I don’t have time to drive it & would like to buy another project car eventually when my time frees up. I’ll do my best to get back to your questions.
