I'm hoping someone here can help me... I'm trying to find out what model year and make of Mustang this is... I *think* it may be a 1965, but I'm not sure. The car I'm talking about is very "box" shaped... it's square cut across the trunk, up the back windshield, across the top, straight down the front windshield and then straight down down the hood. It had the indents in the doors kind of like the new models, and had a short trunk and hood; meaning that the length of the trunk and hood were very close and not the longer hood like most models. Now I'm fairly sure this was a Mustang and not a Camaro, but I've been told there was one model year when the two looked very similiar so I guess I could be wrong.

Thanks in advance for you help!

Could be a '65 but the hood and trunk are not close to the
same length. Did it look like this body style this is a '65 coup?
I don't think they look a thing like a Camaro!

No, I'm not joking... just REALLY new to all this... it's a car I remember as a child that I have always been in love with.. my hope is that I can find out what make & model year it was and eventually find one to restore.

Yep! You Win!!!! I love my coup. It is a blast to drive. My wife
drives a '68 coup and has a great time with it. '65 coups are
very popular and should not be hard to find. There are some
for sale here on VMF in the "cars for sale area" check it out.
We are here to help, any question no matter how small will
get a answer from one of us. Welcome to the Mustang word!

Thank you so much! I'm just at the beginning stages, I want to learn how to do the restoration while I save up some mad money, then I'll start car shopping. At first I was just going to try and find one already restored, but then decided I'd rather have the fun of learning how to do it myself.

Just a side note: the '66 body is identical to the '65. The main difference is in the quarter panel ornament (altough some qtr panel ornaments were deleted on each each) and the grill is different between the 2 years. There's many more subtle differences, but those are the most obvious. Below is my '66 coupe.

Is there a SISTERhood I could be in? :) LOL This is something I've wanted for a long time, and I'm hoping it will really be as much fun as I remember it being for my brothers.

There are a lot of women at VMF, it is not a man only thing.
Ask for a girl answer and you will get one. My wife loves
Mustangs and does the open track driving with me. She can
out-drive some of the men out there. I'm real proud of her,

Welcome to VMF! Good luck with your search, I hope you find what you're looking for.
Acouple of hints if you're going to restore it PERSONALLY
1)have a lot of space available for parts storage
2)invest in a decent set of tools
3)read,read,read,research,research,research
everything you can about mustangs
4)ask questions here on VMF
5)remember,the only stupid question is the one not asked
6)don't get discouraged 1/2 way through-there is light at the end of the tunnel
Good Luck!
