Classifind Cut: 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible – Sold?

by | Apr 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Topless Thursday

May 5, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Not everyone wants a Concours-quality, numbers-matching, vintage first-generation Ford Mustang.  many enthusiasts just want an original Mustang convertible to enjoy nice summer days.  If you fall into this category, then this freshly restored, Tropical Turquoise over white, 1965 Mustang convertible originally listed in April 2021 on Craigslist in Brookfield, Massachusetts (Worcester) might be a candidate for your next purchase.  Comparing that price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the private seller has their Mustang priced between this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $24,500 and its #1 “Concours” appraisal of $37,700.

In addition to the rare color combination and desirable small-block V8 power, we like the subtly integrated kick panel speakers and modern stereo in the bright interior featuring a full console.  While the seller’s description indicates “all steel”, we highly recommend getting this car on a lift to ensure the underside and cowl area remain as solid as the day the car left the factory. Our only other recommendation is to verify whether this example left the factory with an inline-six or a V8. If it’s the former, then confirm with the seller whether the front suspension and brakes have been properly upgraded to handle the additional weight and power of the V8.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“Fully restored, only 40 miles. Not a real GT just used the headlights. New top, and interior. Just about everything has been replaced/rebuilt. Must see too much to list. All steel. The photo does not do paint justice, a must-see in person!
