A sought after Vintage Mustang, coming from the introductory year of the famed Pony car. The “K” in the VIN designates “Factory High Performance” model, which accounts for less than 1% of the Mustang production from 1965 to 1967. A true GT, and a true K-code factory high-performance model, this matching-numbers 1965 Mustang was the recipient of a full, correct restoration and an AACA National First Place award documenting the quality.
It’s powered by its correct K-code 289/271hp engine mated to a correct Toploader 4-speed manual transmission and a 9” rear end with 3:50 gears. It is finished in its original Caspian Blue exterior with a light blue and white two-tone interior. While the options list was limited on the K-code cars, this example does have the two-tone Decor Deluxe Pony interior, GT package and styled-steel wheels. It also has the correct steering-column-mounted Rally Pak with the 8,000 rpm tachometer.
The interior options include deluxe door panels, door-mounted courtesy lights, full-length console, deluxe instrumentation, wood-grain treatment, 3-spoke walnut steering wheel and carpet-trimmed kick pads. The GT package features side stripes, unique GT badging, grille-mounted fog lamps, dual exhaust trumpets, heavy-duty anti-sway bar and front disc brakes. This K-Pony came to Jerry's Classic Mustangs in Alabama in May 2013, and has been in his care and custody ever since. It comes with a 3-ring binder that contains awards, judging sheet and history, and photos on a CD.
