Just acquired my 2nd classic Mustang

Sold a 66 Convertible many years ago and regretted it ever since. So finally scratched the itch with a '65 289 2-barrel. Looking forward to some nice drives if it ever stops raining here in NorCal!

In case anyone's interested, the signatures on the glove box door are: Carroll Shelby, Bob Bondurant, Phil Remington, and Jerry Grant.

Cheers,
-Keith

I'm not personally big on '66's, nor even convertibles. But I have to say THAT is one pretty car.
And welcome to the forum.

Definitely a 65, no rocker molding, reverse lights, 65 grille and quarter ornament but DANG that's GoRgEoUs ! ! And well-optioned, too. The signatures don't hurt at all hee hee, but you might want to swap it for driving and keep the signed one on a wall or in a vault ! !

Some of you folks might want to read his post again. He said he HAD a '66 and this time went with a '65. It's a deluxe interior- the 5 dial gauge looks accurate as does the grille and scoop ornament.

Nice car, Keith. Congrats on scratching the itch or itching the scratch, whatever worked

That is the correct instrument cluster for a 65 with Pony interior.

As others have said, gorgeous car.
