Original tires :)

Found this craigslist mustang and thought you guys might enjoy it:
CLASSIC 1965 MUSTANG

Not sure but I'm guessing those are not the original rims AND tires.

I wish my 65 still had the original leather interior and Firestone raised white letter tires on Cragar mags.

Ahh, he never said they were on the car guys, they're probably in the garage and included in the sale. I'm just saying. Probably not original tires but orignal style/size.

You can have the original 289 block that makes 400 hp. This is less likely and unless he is a terrible salesman I would think you would advertise stroker etc. I'm not buying that.

Thumbdown ???

All that money & time and he can't spend 19.95 for a dash bezel? This one looks definately original, with the optional "no chrome". Were radials original equipment? Or Cragars?

While they are out of touch.....I do have the original wheel/tire that was a spare on my '66. It does not have original '66 air in it though

I suppose someone else could still have the original tires?

It could be 400 HP. That is a mighty big air cleaner.

If you look closely, you can see how they get to 400 hp with that iron intake. They have a 200 shot of NOS disguised as a vacuum hose....

On the original tire question. I'm fairly confident that Firestone did not make the Firehawk tire in 1965. Further, raised white letter tires (other than the Goodyear Blue Streak racing tires) were not factory issued until about 1969 and even then, it was bias ply (such as Goodyear Polyglas and Firestone Wide Oval) I don't believe that the radial tires offered back then had the raised white letters.

Actually, it doesn't look like a bad car. Priced a little high, but too much 'original' stuff to sound credible (not to mention that 400 HP 289).
