Need some advice, I am looking at a 65' to buy and was told the car original had a 3 speed manual, but has been changed to an auto. Is this car something to avoid, should I just keep looking, what does this do to the value of the car.
Thanks ;)

Pretty much what John said, however, if this is an I6 '65 Mustang, an autotrans would actually be better in terms of reliability.

The 2.77 three speed is known as the paper transmission and the 4 spd Dagenham is even worse. Neither are easy to find parts for but the C4 is unbreakable behind the stock 200 and have great parts availability.

If you're lucky, the folks who've done the conversion were lazy and didn't remove the clutch pedal. This would help if you decide to convert to a manual again, such as a T-5!

Regards,
