    Hi Everybody I have been driving in my 1965 Ford Mustang GT Fastback for 3 years. I have often wondered how rare it is, since it has the GT Equipment Group from factory and being a Fastback with Deluxe interior. But I discovered Marti Reports is 67-present only. No 65-66. I tried to search for a...

    Hi Everyone, I'm hoping that I can get some help because after all of the forum reading, research, experiments that I've done, I just can't get my '65 289 to idle. It fires right up, but dies as soon as the gas is let up, and sometimes even with the gas being pressed down. The previous owner...

    I recently got a console for my 1965 Mustang from Kentucky Mustang. The kit didn't have any instructions so I went looking for anything I could. I only found one video that was helpful (link below) but I really didn't like the way they installed the door. So I made this video. There are several...

    So I have a 65 Mustang with the 3.3L 200ci 6 cylinder. It was from the factory as a manual 3 speed but was swapped to an auto 3 speed some time in its life (Still has the factory motor) and got all the correct parts for that transition that I am aware of. The carburetor I got on the car is an...

    Finally decided that learning to the my own alignments would be the way to go and I'm looking for tools. This tool from Tenhulzen claims to work for caster, camber, AND toe. Seems like a pretty nifty design. Has anybody used it...

As a kid I always wanted one and a couple months ago my son started talking about how he wants this car to celebrate getting his full drivers license. He is graduating and going to business school so I decided to buy him one for...

    I have a 65 coupe with a 91 5.0 and T5 in it with a Canton 7 quart RR oil pan. It worked great until recently when I freshened up the steering with some Shelby style pitman and idler arms. Now the center link is rubbing on the oil pan very hard except when the steering is centered. The motor is...

    Hey all fellow Mustang lovers! I am getting my 1965 Coupe painted in a the next few months and am going with the original Ivy Green color but would really like it a bit more modern/metallic looking if possible. Has anyone gotten their original color painted and added extra flake to it? I'm...

    I have a ‘65 convertible with a 200 ci 6-cylinder automatic for 30 years. Haven’t started it in several years but it’s been kept in a dry garage. Now, it turns over but doesn’t start. My guess is either no/poor spark or gas. I’ve changed everything related to spark. Here’s a video of what it...

    Does anyone know what the thread pitch and size on the two screws on a 1965 door striker are? I have the striker plates, but not the screws, and would rather save time and a little money by buying screws that fit instead of a whole new striker set.

    Hello, Does anybody have experience with installing traction bars with a currie 9 inch rear end housing? I have a currie 9 inch in my 65 and if I remember correctly, the housing required different u-bolts than the stock 8 inch due to the housing being larger. The traction bars I am interested...

    For this write up my approach is to share how I modified the set up to work for me and my 6’4” stature while also removing one of my 'ghosts in the machine'. A good amount of the work I have put into the car has actually been more tweaks or improvements rather than pure ground up building and...
