Is this Mustang ad a misrepresention?

E Bay:
1965 Ford Mustang GT
1965 K-Code Mustang GT Fastbac

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Ford-M...AAAOSwePtc9oQt

Doesn't appear to be a GT, GT 350, or a K-Code...opinions?

It appears to be a very nice GT-350 clone. It doesnít appear to be an original GT car, but closer inspection would be required. I am not an expert on K motors, but it has either been replace, or modified. He does note the heads are anot original and it has a hydraulic cam not a solid lifer one. So while it may be originally a K Code car, the motor may be long gone.

I think I may have seen the car at local shows before. It is only about 10 miles from me. If someone is seriously interested in it, Iíll be happy to go take a look and get first hand details.

Must be your first time on ebay The truth is often in the pics not shown- in this case the SF09K VIn or head stamps or the magical "matching numbers" mentioned. I bet its got a fake Shelby tag with no telling what under it.

Floridians and ebay are a funny match but they will soon produce the first $40K C-code coupe.

The VIN on the listing indicates "S"F09K385...now either that is a typo or the owner doesn't know the difference between an "S" or a "5" on the VIN and has no clue which is correct.

Has sweep 120 speedometer. I believe all GTs had round 140 in 65. Gives it genuine GT-350 look though as ole Shelby didn't use GTs as base for his builds.

Nice looking ride, I would want to look it over in person before I shelled out that kind of money though.

Not a GT. Seller indicates build date of 12/64. A few months too early for the PIO.

I think the owner means GT-350 when he says GT. It is obviously a clone and the seller doesnít seem to knowledgeable. I may go take a look at it just to see the real story.
