It has a white and red interior. The manual shifter has a very aggressive bend. The even gears lay on the console.
According to the decal on the air cleaner, this is the top dog - 389ci 4 barrel high performance V8 engine.
This Arcadian Blue 1965 Mustang hardtop was at the 2010 Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals held in Bellevue, Washington. This car show moves around the country each year, but in 2010 I was lucky enough to have it just down the street from me. It was tied with the 2010 Mustangs Northwest Roundup car show held the next day. I bet over 1000 Mustangs showed up.
Here is another view of the 1965 Arcadian Blue Mustang hardtop, it has full wheel covers, rocker panel metal trim, and a blue interior. No passenger side mirror, that was an extra priced option in 1965.
These were the standard, 13 inch, base-level wheel covers in 1965. A larger 14 inch version came standard on V8's and optional spinners could be ordered.
I like how this photo matches the previous and looks good next to each other as shown in the thumbnails above.
Normally I don't take photos of trunks, but this one was so clean, restored, and has a matching tool bag.
