Here's a pic of a data plate, which would be on the driver's door. Other information you're asking about would be on the buck-tag which would be under the hood on the top of the driver-side fender.
… and welcome to the forum!

Do you mean like "how many did they make"? While the production numbers exist for the number of convertibles, hardtops and 2+2's made with standard and luxury interiors that's all the data still existing. Number of units by engine or other options such as PIO ("GT") are long gone for '65 AND '66 model years.

63B Fastback with Pony Interior = 5,776 (T-code, C-code, A-code, K-code)

I have heard unverified sources range from 2% to 3% for GT option in '65... so
5,776 times 2% = 115
5,776 times 3% = 173

115 - 173 as a PURE ESTIMATE.

The 1965 number is a bit artificially low because the model year started early (april 1964) and was still being built to aug 1965, however, the GT option was not available for sale until April 1965.

The good news is that the number of GT's is increasing, as more and more 1965's, build long before the option was even a twinkle in Ford's eye, are magically going back in time and undergoing a transmogrification process, and they become GT's. Even T code 200 6 cylinders transmogrify into V8's with the GT option due to a "stamping" error on Ford's part.

Based on current changeling rates, the last 1965 1966 6 cylinder Mustang will retroactively become a V8 in the year 2041. In 2077, the last 2 barrel will have left the factory as a 4 barrel, in 2112, all cars will have been GT's, and 2132, all cars will have been Shelby GT convertible fastbacks R codes.

Welcome!

And no, Ford saw fit to destroy pre-67 production data in 1979, about 5 minutes before people started asking.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

How have you confirmed that your car is a true, factory built GT and not somebody's attempt to pass off a plain Mustang as a GT? The fakers are getting pretty good at cloning the GT.

Yup. Let us see that "dip" in the dash for the round speedo...... and a few other details.

That's pretty interesting on the amount, my 65 A code GT has the deluxe interior, original stampings, buck tag and 2 build sheets, found second one under carpet, first one wrapped around wiring harness behind instrument cluster, it has all the reinforcements under rear seats and for the dual exhaust, original correct wiring with the fog lamps and eye brow for 5 instrument cluster, it has all the original equipment including automatic train and A/C ,car sat for 24 years in a garage before owner finally gave it up, somewhere lost in my house is the original owners manual with the tag in it, that will be the last of my fastbacks I will get rid of, poppy red with black interior, Pete

That's funny!.......POOF! It's a GT! LOL!


Maybe someday I will open my garage door and my '65 T-code Vert will "Magically" turn into a GT Model like Cinderella's Pumpkin! lol....

Don't know about a Full blown GT, but it will definitely be getting '65 GT Fog-lights!

It has all the specific things to verify it to be a real GT. Re-inforcementplates for GT exhaust hangers. And punched holes form factory for the fog lights.

Doesn't necessarily mean it's a factory GT.
The dash "dip" and the frame rail reinforcements are the hardest things to fake.
