Real deal: ’65 Ford Mustang K-Code Convertible
We have a major soft spot for the K-Code or Hi-Po Mustang from ’65 & ’66. We almost don’t care whether it is a notchback Coupe, Fastback or Convertible. Ours was a Fastback and although it wasn’t exactly like Steve McQueen’s ’67 390, it was the closest thing I could come too. That 289 solid lifter is a really cool engine and coupled to a 4-speed, it is all that you’ll ever want in a taut muscle car. By taut I mean, it didn’t have to have 400 plus cubic inches to be fun. Of course, it was good enough for Ole Shelby to use in the Cobra and as a basis for the GT350. How bad could it be? Really bad. Like bad boy bad. Today’s featured Mustang, is a true K-Code convertible in Honey Gold Metallic. It came originally with a standard interior and is sporting some serious GT equipment. But I believe the GT Equipment and Pony Interior was added during the restoration. Real K-Code, GT Convertibles are amongst the most rare Mustangs from these early years. But it doesn’t really matter because this car has all the right stuff and looks great. According to the conservative Sports Car Market Price Guide, this Mustang could be valued at around $45,000 to almost $50,000 depending on the quality of the restoration.
