This Ford Mustang 289 Fastback is a late 1965 model year build date (July 17), featuring a very rare Deluxe Parchment w/Maroon Pony Interior with optional GT dashboard and steering wheel. Restored in 1986 by a Mustang Club of America Gold Card Judge and Certified Master Tech, from an excellent original rust-free west-coast car, utilizing only original Ford parts during the restoration process. Upon completion this car won 1st in class at the ’86 MCA Nationals in Pensacola, FL, 1st in class at Lincoln Land MCA Nationals in Springfield, IL, and another 1st in class at the MCA Nationals in Des Moines, IA. Also featured as the cover car in Mustang Times magazine in 1988, it has won numerous additional local show awards, including Best in Class, Best of Show, Best Paint, and Best Interior. Currently retired from competitive show duty, retro-fitted with period Shelby style wheels and modern radial tires, and driven 9,406 miles since completion. As you can see from the photos, this car has been meticulously maintained, never driven in wet weather conditions, and always kept in driven-show condition. If you want an ultra correct Mustang Fastback, that was restored by an MCA Judge using only genuine OEM Ford parts sourced directly from Ford dealership parts departments, then this car deserves your attention. The driving experience is on par with the cosmetic detailing, and does not fail to impress in power output, and road handling. Included in the sale are the currently fitted four Shelby style wheels with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, plus the full set of 5 original show wheels and tires (see trunk photo). The pictured California License plates are for show purposes and not included, however can be registered to the car via California DMV's Year of Manufacture program at a separately negotiated cost.
