With a heavy heart that my 65 genuine GT is for sale. Looking to buy a house, so unfortunately toys are getting consolidated. Originally a 4-speed, A-code engine, in parchment white with blue interior, it is now black on black, running a C4 and a later 289. The stance is one of my favorite things about it, rear up sitting on meaty 295's and the functional 429 Boss Scoop upfront alongside the hood tach.

Runs strong, reliable and is a lot of fun, with its 3.80 Trac-Lok which is filled with Valvoline High Performance 80w-90 Gear Oil. Distributor is recurved to 18 degrees of mechanical advance to a total of 34 degrees. Engine is running Royal Purple 10w30, the transmission is filled with B&M Trickshift fluid and has had the bands adjusted. Steering box and balljoints have been treated to some fresh Ford Genuine Fluid XG-1-C Premium Long-Life grease. I recently fitted a JBA Tri-Y header and stainless GT exhaust system. It sounds fantastic!

Future plans included relocating the battery to the back, so included are a battery box, full cabling and a mechanical battery shut off switch, amongst many more parts.

There are still a few small things here and there that could do with improving, but it is a jump in and enjoy car. Tags are about to expire but I'll put a fresh set on before she goes. Based in Culver City, Los Angeles. Have had these old cars all my life and know how to look after them. I guess it's time to take a break from classics, but my time will come again! Asking $17k. Let me know if you have any questions or if I missed anything, I'm sure there's plenty I have forgotten!
