As the title states, this is the first year 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback. It was a very nice car before the restoration began and is now stunning! The paint and body work was done by C&L Customs. The car was covered with German Standox paint ($1100.00 per gallon), followed by (4) coats of clear coat, wet sanded to 5000 grit and then had (3) final buffings. Below are the highlights.
2) 4-speed manual transmission
3) period correct cast iron 4-barrel intake
4) Auto-Lite 4100 4-barrel carburetor
5) Hurst 4-speed shifter
6) New carpet
7) 80 ml Kilzmat sound deadener
8) All new interior upholstery
9) Shelby-style rims
10) Shelby-style valve covers and air cleaner
11) Shelby-style steering wheel
12) Shelby-style top and side stripes
13) Shelby-style side exhaust
14) New upper and lower control arms, wheel bearing, shocks
15) Detailed engine bay
16) And more that my old *** can't remember

A very nice clone... But, Quite A few things that stand out... for a '65 Shelby.... Wrong Seatbelts, Engine Block is the wrong paint color (Should be Black for '65), GT-350 Rocker Panel Stripe is wrong (A very big boo-boo)....The car has a '66 GT-350 Rocker Panel Stripe, The Correct '65 GT-350 Letters and Fonts were huge on the Forward Rocker Panel Stripe.. Car has some minor panel fitment issues...and finally the car has a beautiful Steering Wheel, but it's an "Optional" 1966-1967 Shelby Steering Wheel Reproduction.. The '65 Shelby would have had a LeCarra type steering wheel like what was installed on the Shelby Cobras. The car also has the wrong year 1966 Dashpad which is really bizarre....Why?!?? Also, On the Dash, The '65 GT-350 Guage Pod is missing... Again, Why The '65 Shelby Dash Horn Switch is also missing. For almost 50K, You'd expect some of these items..
It seems that a lot of nice things were done to the car, but a lot of things were also missed...really basic cheap ones too... Strange.
Beautiful car! $1,100 per gallon paint! Good gosh! If I was rich......

Your split craiglist/forum pricing backfired on you here.
I just found this ad, but I had seen the auction listing and planned on going until I saw the craigslist post and figured the reserve would be higher than I was willing to pay. I went to the mountains with my wife instead.
If the car was straight, I would have paid more than the hammer price ($35,000). If I did not win, I would have at least bid the other guy up.
It's a good looking car.
Regarding the stuff that's wrong on it (engine color, dash pad, stripes, etc.) I could fix that in a day for less than $400 except the stripes and it seems like 3/4 or more of the '65 replicas have the '66 stripes because the '65 stripes are a pain.
