1965 The 18 month production year

1964 1/2 Mustang, 1965 Mustang:  March 9th 1964 Ford began the production of the Mustang. On April 17th the first Mustangs were sold to the public. Hard top and convertibles were the only models available. August 15th 1964 the production of the 1965 Mustang begins and the 2 + 2 Fastback is introduced. October 1964 Carroll Shelby begins production of Shelby Mustangs in California. January 17th 1965 Shelbys are introduced. The vehicle warranty plate: Mustangs made between March 9th and August 17th 1964 have a letter of "C' through "H" stamped in the date code. A good way to quickly tell an early 1965 Mustang from a later 1965 Mustang is to look at the hood, the early hoods had a beveled edge on the front corner edge, the grill was also beveled. In the later part of the 1965 production year the bevel was deleted. Another way to quickly tell is to look at the hood bumpers. The early 65 Mustangs had a phillips screw holding the bumper on in the later production they have a domed shaped bumper molded on to the stud. On the 1965 V-8 Mustang you will find a 4 1/2" wide chrome emblem showing the engine size. The 1965 Mustang was offered in a choice of five, all-vinyl colors: black, white, red, blue and palomino. The cloth and vinyl combination could be had in in black or palomino. A sixth color choice was added "Ivy Gold" in the fall of 1964 and in mid summer 1965 palomino was replaced by the lighter parchment. Bucket seats were standard however, a front bench seat was an option in the hardtop and convertible. The "pony interior" was optional beginning in March of 1965. You can seem really smart to all you friends by knowing the correct name which is simply "interior decor group". In the "interior decor group you will find: Luxury seats, and door panels, padded sun visors, wood grain 5 dial instrument panel and glove box door, deluxe simulated walnut grain steering wheel, pistol grip door handles, brightly trimmed foot pedals, partially carpeted kick panels and red and white lights located in the door. The body style code stamped onto the Mustangs warranty plate should include the letter "B" for the "Interior Decor" models. The "Standard Interior" cars will have an "A".   An interior point that is of interest is that the seat belts in the early 1965 mustangs were attached with eye bolts, in mid year they switched to a standard hex head. An often misunderstood option in 65 was the rally pac, many will tell you that the rally pack was only available in the GT. Not true, the rally pac option was available on all models. In mid 1965 the GT equipment group was introduced along with a new lower profile tach / clock on the steering column. The standard V-8 cars came with a 6000 rpm tach. The "hipo" V-8 cars came with a 8000 rpm tach.  Of course one of the easy way to tell a V-8 cars from the six cylinder is the wheels. All V-8 cars had 5 bolt wheels while the 6 cylinders had 4 bolts. In early production there were 3 engine choices, the 170 6 cylinder, 260 6 cylinder, and the 289 8 cylinder. In later 1965 the only 6 cylinder that was available was the 200. The 170 and the 260 were both dropped. Also, you now had the choice of the 200 hp 2 barrel 289, 4 barrel 225 hp version, and the "hipo" 271 hp 289.  On the first anniversary of the Mustang Ford by introducing the "GT equipment group". If you are looking for an original GT look for "disc brakes" on the brake pedal, large disc brake master and remember power brakes were not available on the GT. For a true GT the warranty plate must be "P" through "V' denoting the later production.  Look also for the exhaust through the rear valance, and the GT fog lamps on the front mesh grill. But don't be fooled in 65 the dealers pushed to have some or all of these options installed at the dealership. So, not all cars with the GT options are real GTs.

1965 Mustang Shelby
On January 27, 1965 Carroll Shelby introduced us to the Shelby Mustang. It looked very much like a fastback Mustang but there were a lot of differences. First you'll notice that it has no badges, only the Mustang gas cap and one small horse with the tri-colored bar remain. The fiberglass hood with hood scoop and hood pins replace the old sheet metal. Interior: In the 65 Shelby you could have any interior color you wanted as long as it was black. On the center of the dash you'll find a pod with a tach and oil pressure gauge. Also, look for the large 3 inch competition seat belts. Engine: The GT 350 had one engine choice the 306 hp 289, look for the special "COBRA" high rise intake and the 715 cfm Holley Carb. Shelby VIN Plate: All Shelby had a special VIN plate riveted over the Ford VIN number on the drivers side inner front fender. If you want to take a look under the Shelby plate you find that all 1965 Shelby's have original VIN numbers that start with 5R09K. This denotes that they were built in the San Jose plant with the high performance 289.
