What we said earlier about the convertible applies to the Coupe as well. The K-Code Mustangs are rare and valuable and now is the time to step in and get one. You might ask why we are so gung-ho on these cars, after all it was just an option package for a car that Ford made about 600,000 of in the first year. Well, you have to drive one to appreciate it because before there were big block pony cars, this was the way to go fast. The 271hp solid lifter engine spins like crazy and the sound is amazing. And if Shelby GT350s are out of your price range, this is the next best thing. In fact, without disturbing anything visual, you can modify it to get close to GT350 power and handling for not huge money. Read More
The Mustang was such a success, they made over a million in a very short time. And like Burger King, you could have it your way. How much fun must it have been to sit with the order book. Tons of colors, trim, packages, engines, body styles, oh boy! Who knew back then what would make your Mustang stand out from all others. Okay, so you didn’t want the K-code option because you couldn’t live with the 90-day warranty and an automatic was preferred. Read More

But with the K designation, you had restrictions back in the day. No automatic, no A/C and a limited 90-day warranty. Next down on the food chain are the A-code cars. This is configured as 289ci V-8 with a 4-barrel carb pumping out 225hp. This is a great engine and delivers terrific performance in the relatively lightweight Mustang.
Ford built millions of Mustangs between 1965 and 1966 so it won’t surprise you to find multiple Mustangs on Mint as we find them. And since there were millions, one can be sort of selective of all the offerings that are out there. Most of the Mustangs are, not surprisingly, restored to some degree. Read More
