all of those sound like dealer accessories. put on at the dealership, not factory, however, they are all ford parts. sounds pretty crazy with all that gear!

if you bought it cause of it all, and then strip it down to sell, wouldn't that take the fun out of it?

Geez, You'd think with all of those options he paid for, He could have paid for the optional 289 V8!!!

I agree.. The car looks like the J.C. Whitney catalog threw up all over it.... but I do have to say, that I have seen worse over the years..lol...!

Nice car. Nice find.

:eek:)

I thought smog equipment didn't rear it's ugly head until '68?

California cars had some smog stuff in '66...not sure what was there in '65 or what Mustangs produced outside of the San Jose plant had. Ford really had their hands full trying to keep up with demand, so it wouldn't surprise me if they rolled smog parts in at different times...regulations probably varied a lot state-by-state back then as well, which likely played the biggest role in implementation dates.

Nope! Not in California!

I think 1966 was the first year for CA smog equipment...
I don't think that I've ever seen a '65 with them... Please correct me if I am wrong...

Non Cal 64 1/2 (early 65) didn't even have PCV valve. 65 and on all had PCV valve as minimum. Some will give examples of generator car (so called 64 1/2) with PCV. Yup.

It was a Ford "Rotunda" brand option available over the parts counter in 1963 for use in all of the car lines.
