289 V8 5 SPEED MANUAL TWO TONE GREEN & BLACK AMERICAN RACING WHEELS SWEET
It’s hard to call it a complete wild side, because the green is part of a thoughtful and comprehensive two-tone where the black is on the roof, rockers, and even the added hood scoop. This one also likes to have a sporty sense of style, and so that cool scoop is joined by upgrades like the hood pins, quad exhaust tips, and American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. The whole package is done to be a driver’s car.
It looks good with the black Ford racing valve covers, a matching air grabber, steel braided cooling lines, and an overall tidy setup. This 289 cubic-inch V8 was built for added pep with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and Accel Super Stock coil. The motor fires up nicely, and the upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission means you get to take even better control than they got in ’65.
So it makes for a fun and distinctive classic that’s also offered for a value price. A first-year Mustang is a great classic with iconic lines and nice chrome bumpers, but this one wants to be distinctive for much more. You have a neon-like green that is far more vivid than anything offered in ’65.
