1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

Here's a link to my Craigslist ad:


Check back regularly, the price will come down, it's currently listed at 7,000.

Here's a copy and paste of my post on Craigslist.

Selling our 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe VIN "C" code engine, 289 2 barrel carb, 3 speed, Pertronix Ignition, fairly new gas tank, fairly new shocks, new fuel pump, new clutch bracket, new clutch pedal, new clutch bushings, new clutch rod linkage, new clutch lower boot, new headlight switch, new steering wheel, rebuilt original Autolite 2100 carb. Engine does need to be rebuilt. The number 3 cylinder has low compression, around 93 psi. Technically the engine would still run but it will be slightly under powered with the number 3 cylinder compressing at 93 psi. The other 7 cylinders fall within the manufacturer's recommended range, I believe around 150 psi if memory serves me correctly. I guess you could call it a V7.6. As it sits right now, the engine turns over no problem. It fires but the carburetor needs some tinkering to get it running. It needs a new battery, the current one won't hold a charge. This car is nearly a runner that needs updates and tinkering, it's a light duty project car.

VIN: 5R07C163467
Also, the other number on the door placard is: 65A. J 26 12M 61

$7,000 or best offer.

The car is complete and includes the mirrors which are in the trunk.

Black interior. Original color is Rangoon red but somebody painted maroon over it. The seats have some tears.

Garage stored for the last 7 years.

Looks like a fairly solid car. Kudos to you for being upfront to show some good quality shots of the trouble areas. Shows you are an honest seller. Best of luck with the sale.

Since the car sold, I removed the post from Craigslist. I didn't want people calling me and texting me about it anymore. I'm actually still getting solicitation calls from marketers ....
