Here is the T-5 fender emblem.
The gas cap on a T-5 has the Mustang letters removed.
These were the original hub caps that came with the T-5. They have the Mustang letters removed as well.
The center cap of the steering wheel has no Mustang letters.
Check out the metric speedometer. It's marked out in km/hr instead of mile/hr. The ignition switch in the bottom of the photo is not used. A steering column locking version is installed below it on the steering column.
The stock ignition switch on the 1965 Mustang wasn't good enough for the German market. This ignition switch was added to the steering column. Wiring was routed to it. It had an additional position called "Garage" - which the shown switch is currently in. This position locked the steering column and didn't allow the steering wheel to rotate. Check out the stop position? It's called "Halt". The key says "Taunus". Taunus was a 4-door Ford family car sold in Germany. I wonder if the ignition switch was from the Taunus? The lock is made by Neiman.
Julien sends us a snapshot of the ID plate located on the top side of the fender of his T-5 hardtop. Most of it is in German.
Check out the 200ci 6-cylinder engine. It has a chrome valve cover, air cleaner, and header pipes.
Here is a shot of Julien's 1965 T-5 during restoration. The paint is on. The engine is in.

Under the hood is a 289ci V8 engine. It has chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner lid.
Inside we have a wood steering wheel and a floor shifted automatic transmission without a center console.
The trunk is a bit small with the full size spare tire taking up a lot of room. It does have a cool vintage plaid tire cover and floor mat.
Check out Greg Blackmon's Kona Blue 1965 Mustang hardtop. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week
for the week starting September 26, 2010. Greg tells us more, "I found this car in a local swap mag that comes out once a week. I traded a guy a 90 Honda Civic and $500.00 cash for this one of a kind classic. The car came with the 327 Chevy motor, rock crusher 4-speed transmission, and a 9-inch Ford rearend with 5.32 gears with a rearend coolant system. The car has side pipes, which are molded to the body, and a flip top gas fueler on the driver side back fender. Also, to finish off the unique custom features, the car came with Shelby tail lights and fog lights and a 66 model grille. I've been told that my car is a one of a kind which was built for racing, been told it was a California Special, heck I really don't know! I do know it's SPECIAL! If anyone has any ideas please please throw em at me. Also, I have a created a slide show to show start to finish of the car being restored. Go to facebook type in: Leslie- Chico Greg Blackmon and go to the smilebox slide. HIT PLAY & ENJOY!"
The side pipes are molded into the rocker panels. The rear taillights are from a Shelby.
