1965 Ford Mustang GT HiPo

I purchased my ‘65 Mustang in 1977 from the original owner. When I bought it, it had been run hard and put away wet and needed a lot of TLC. The car languished in my garage (actually 3 different garages) for the 35 years until I finally got around to restoring it.

I did a complete rotisserie restoration that included replacing both rear quarters with Ford NOS panels. Since the restoration was completed 5 years ago the car has traveled a grand total of 45 miles. The reason for the low mileage is the fact that I have 5 other Mustangs, including: 2016 GT premium, 1964 1/2 convertible, 1966 Fastback drag car (that is in the process of being sold) and a 77 Cobra II.

All of the other cars have kept me quite busy and the GT has been in the garage ever since. This year however, I have finally decided it is time to get it out and take it to a few car shows to see how it stacks up against the competition. Even if it never wins anything I had a lot of fun doing a total ground up restoration and can say honestly I know every nut, bolt and washer in that car!

    Great job! Restoring one right from the ground up and then being able to drive it down the freeway is the greatest reward one can achieve. That reward will never collect dust like some ole trophy or plaque. Take Care!
