1965 Ford Mustang Coupe

For Sale: 1965 Mustang Coupe (347 with 4 speed)
Located in Atlanta, Ga
$18,000, price negotiable
Serious Inquiries only
Message me if interested.
More pics are available if needed.

Details:
Fully restored in 2017.
Was originally a V6, converted to V8 by upgrading rear from 4 lug 7.5 rear to 5 lug 8.7
Because it was converted to a V8, all new steering and suspension in front had to be replaced with V8 strength components.
Also, due to the V8 conversion, braking on front needed to go to disk and a dual bowl master cylinder had to be put in.
The car came with a 3 speed and I upgraded it with a new rebuilt 4 speed
The floor pans were replaced and a lower seat riser was added to the driver side to accommodate for more room between the knees and the steering wheel.
The underside of the body was taken down to the metal, primed, and then sprayed with bedliner paint for a durable finish.
The seats were added due to the original seats not locking in place. The new seats lock in place so that they do not fold forward without the release.
The entire care was sanded down to the metal and then primed with Epoxy primer, then a final coat was added.
All of the weatherstripping, body seals, and felt seals were replaced.
The interior was completely redone with all new parts
The radio was deleted from the dash and moved to the custom center console
All of the wiring in the car was brittle, so it was all removed and replaced
All lights have been replaced and added LED lights to the gauge bezels for the turn signals and headlight beams (high mode)
All of the emergency brake mechanism is new
All of the bolts/screws/fasteners are new or repainted (Used only 8 grade bolts)
Replaced hood from another 1965 mustang due to the old hood had holes from a scoop
Everything that could be used original was used, but everything else was replaced with new parts.
Seat belts were added, although not a requirement.
