1965 High Performance Mustang Convertible



Here is the 65 Mustang Convertible around 1981 when it was first purchased.  Disassembly  had  already begun.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Here is another shot after more disassembly of the Mustang Convertible.

We have gotten a lot of positive feedback about our posts on our 65 Mustang K Code Convertible Project.

I knew there were some old pictures around here somewhere (remember film?), and I just ran across them the other day.  I quickly scanned in a few to show you what the car looked like when we first purchased it back in around 1980-81.  It was restored then and completed around 1983 or 1984 for its "first" restoration.  All of our recent Blog Posts have, of course, been of the second restoration.  It's hard to believe that we have owned the car for at least 30 years!!

It was complete when purchased and actually looked better than it does in some of these pictures.  We started disassembling it before we took the first pictures!

Here is the progress on the 65 Mustang during the first restoration.  Here the bodywork was completed and the front end and underside had been painted.

70 Mustang Mach 1 - Family Affair

It is always cool to hear stories about some of our customer's cars.  This one is no exception.  Thanks for sharing.



It is a 1970 Mach 1 Mustang, my father (Ray Keen Sr.) purchased it in 1972 for $2,000 with the help of a family member, Kenny Baker. My father drove this car all throughout his high school career at Greenbrier East High School in Lewisburg, WV.  He dated my mother (Kathy S. Keen) in it for 6 years, and they went on their honey moon in it.  In the early 90's my father took the car off the road and it sat under the shed at their house.  When I was 15 I started to partial restore it and got it back on the road and I drove it to high school some (Alleghany High School, Covington, VA) and to prom.  In 2005 I decided to do a full restoration to it.  I had it media blasted and powder coated the undercarriage and engine compartment.  I practically replaced all the sheet metal and replaces all the bolts and screw with new ones and also purchased all brand new chrome.  My uncle Terry Simpson painted the car for me and a good friend of mine Kenny Armentrout did the body work.  Another friend of mine, BJ Fridley installed my headliner for me.  I had lots of help from other friends in tearing it apart and putting it back together : Wesley Arritt, David Arritt, Nick Morgan, Larry Morgan, Wesley Wolfe, Larry Wolfe, Don Graham, Jarrell Burdette, Heath Pence, Denny Pence and Jeffrey Howard.  And finally, 6 years later and approx $30,000 later, in May of 2011 I put it back on the road!  It has a 351 Windsor Engine 4 barrell, with a 4-speed Transmission, hurst shifter...373 rear end.

Mustang Engine Code Decals

1965 Mustang 289 HiPo Engine Code Decal.  We have several others available for the various engines in the Mustangs.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

I guess this post is for the "detail guys and gals" and show Mustangs.  We have many different Engine Code Decals for the various engines in the Mustangs.

We just got some new ones though.  We now have a wide variety of the engine code decals for the 65-66 Mustangs.

So where were these decals originally mounted?  Well, on 1965 Mustangs, they were usually installed on the bottom water pump outlet where the lower hose attaches.  Here is a picture showing that.

On the 1966 models, they are sometimes seen on the coil and the bracket mounted vertically.

New Boss 302 Book

New Boss 302 Book by Donald Farr.  In stock now!
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Donald Farr's original Boss 302 book is a fantastic reference book.  Unfortunately, it went out of print years ago. We were very happy when we found out that he was updating the book and including the new Boss 302 information also.

We just received these new books yesterday.  I think it is just one of those "must have" books for any Mustang Library.  It is our part number LT-171.

Here is the description from the publisher:

Author: Donald Farr Foreward by: Parnelli Jones Format: Hardcover, 160 pages

Of the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: BOSS. Originally created to homologate the new Boss 302 engine and option package for SCCA Trans-Am racing, the Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics.

For the 2012 model year, Ford has at long last revived the most revered of all Mustang models: BOSS. With a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that delivers more than 440 horsepower, the Boss is truly back!

To mark this historic occasion, Mustang historian Donald Farr has written a complete history of the Boss 302, from its late 1960s origins in Ford's boardrooms, through its Trans-Am successes and untimely demise in 1970 up to the conception and development of the spectacular new 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Packed with brilliant photography and first-hand accounts from the people who created the original Boss as well as the team that resurrected FordÆs most iconic Mustang, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read!
Donald Farr has been on staff at Mustang Monthly Magazine for 30 years. In addition to his magazine work, Donald authored Mustang Boss 302: FordÆs Trans-Am Ponycar and co-wrote How to Restore Your Mustang with Mustang Monthly founder Larry Dobbs. He currently owns the 1966 Mustang GT that his grandfather purchased new.

Rufus Parnell "Parnelli" Jones is an American racing legend. As a driver, he has won races and championships in a wide variety of machinery, including sprint cars, midget cars, stock cars, off-road vehicles, sports cars, Trans-Am cars, and Indy cars. A winner of three Indy 500s (one as a driver, two as a car owner), among his many other career highlights was winning the 1970 Trans-Am Championship in a Mustang Boss 302.

Cobra Emblem

2 inch diameter round Cobra emblem.  www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
We have received a few questions about the Cobra emblems on the fenders of our 65 Mustang HiPo Convertible.  These emblems were originally installed on the Cobras, and they were included in some of the engine induction kits that were sold through Ford.  Our Mustang has the Cobra Three 2-V Induction Kit, which would have included two of these Cobra emblems.

2 inch diameter round Cobra emblem mounted below 289 High Performance Badge on 1965 Mustang HiPo Convertible.  www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

These emblems are available as our part number ER497.  They are made by a company in the USA that originally made emblems for Ford and Shelby back in the sixties.  They are die cast metal, nicely detail painted and have two pins for mounting on the back side.
