Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

SOLD!! Off to Spain!! This is a gorgeous 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback that is an authentic 4-speed K Code that is all numbers matching. When this car was restored, it was turned into a tribute Shelby GT350H while retaining its original features as a K Code fastback. Our Southern California consignment client has owned this Mustang for the past 20 years and has kept it looking nearly as-new. With what appears to be complete recreated inspection markings and numbers matching, this could easily be shown at regional concours events as well as driven on tours.

The beautiful black livery features gold racing stripes and the famous Shelby GT350H stripe along the side. The paint quality is excellent and after 20 years still shows extremely well. All of the Shelby badging is complete, including on the wheel center caps, door sills, etc. If we didn’t tell you that this was a tribute, you wouldn’t know.

The black vinyl interior is nearly as new as well, and it also has the abundance of Shelby badging. We love the fold down rear seats that are a feature of the fastbacks. The matching numbers four-speed manual transmission is the way to go and provides the excitement and pleasure of the full driving experience. The interior includes a full array of instrumentation including a Shelby tachometer and all the necessary auxiliary gauges. We love the fact that Carroll Shelby personally signed the passenger-side sun-visor at his office in California!

As an authentic matching numbers K Code, this Mustang has its original high-performance 289 CID engine. As a $442 option when new, the 271 hp (202 kW) “K-code” High Performance engine was the single most expensive Mustang option, and only 7,273 of the 680,992 Mustangs sold in 1965 were so equipped. With a skilled driver, K-code/4-speed equipped Mustangs could do 0-60 in around 6 seconds, and put down mid 14-second ¼ mile times with ease. This Mustang has many of the Shelby upgrades and looks as aggressive as it performs.

The undercarriage is in very nice condition with no signs of rust or damage. Our full inspection revealed that the passenger side trailing arm is slightly bent and the high beams are not functioning. Everything else works well and functions great!

The Hagerty Price Guide has the No. 2 example of the K-Code fastback valued at $71,280, so this is priced right.

Interesting Fact: The Ford Mustang has been in continuous production since 1964 and is currently in its sixth generation. This vehicle was originally predicted to sell 100,000 units but ended up selling 400,000 in its first year, and the one-millionth was sold within two years of launch. From 1965 to 1973, the Ford Mustang was created from the compact Ford Falcon. In 1974, however, Ford decided to rework the Mustang to be a longer-wheelbase version of the Pinto. This model, called the Mustang II, was standard until the Mustang began using the Fox platform in 1979. The Ford Mustang stopped using the Fox platform in 2005 and has since produced two generations that use their own unique platforms. The sporty vehicle has offered six-cylinder and eight-cylinder engines throughout its lifespan, but a four-cylinder model is the base today. Throughout the years, varying models of the Ford Mustang were denoted with different nameplates such as GT, Mach 1, Cobra, and more. This muscle car is still a popular option for car buyers and enthusiasts today!
