1965 Ford Mustang


One car that took America by storm during its formal introduction was the 1965 Ford Mustang. Now with plenty of generations and different models to sport the Mustang name, the pony car has remained in production for a continuous 55 years, an impressive feat that not many models have accomplished. The ’65 Mustang is as much of an American staple as apple pie.

Every year there would be modifications made to a car. This was a custom in America at the time.

This was the case with the Mustang. Even though changes were minor from one year to the next, they would be easily identifiable. The main changes on the 1965 model were on the front end of the car, the headlamps and the front bumper. The interior received adjustable front bucket seats.

Under the hood sits the 289-cubic-inch V8 engine, a highly desired motor in the ’65 model due to its reliability, decent power, and simple maintenance. Not only that, it was easy to modify.

When the ’65 was first introduced at the World Fair in New York by Henry Ford II, people fell in love with it and 22,000 were scooped up immediately. By the first anniversary, a total of 400,000 Mustangs were sold.
