Well where could we start: The 1965 stang comes with the 289 with 210 HP 2V, 225 HP 4V Autolite and the HIPO 289 at 271 HP. Trannys were C-4, 3 speed top loader and 4 speed top loaders. all these car got good mileage but the HIPO with leaded gas at around 100 octane according to the company you got it from but sonoco was the best with the sonoco 360 at 108 octane. most of the mustangs came with 14 inch tires with the exception of the GT350 That had 15 inch tires on them. Thats about all I can come up with off the top on my head but I will look some other things up for you if you need.

IN MY OPINION............ I would go with a 1965 Mustang. The classic look gives me a warm feeling. I would feel like I owned a piece of history because the '65 is so early. Fix it up, and make the engine purr. Classic Mustangs are the way to go for me .

As generations grow older there tends to be a lost of some of the old teaching and ways of doing thing that we never recovered, I was born in the 50's and feel the need to teach many of the young Marines of today as much as I can about the classic cars of old. What they have is what they have read or got pass down from fathers. uncles or someone in the family that has a claasic car. I have heard many stories about the car that some one in the familt had and now these young men and women, yes women can have the same love for them that men have. There nothing like the look in the eyes of a men or women with there first classic car of there own. We as the old guys as they call us these days are responsible for bring they look or light into the eyes of as many youngers as we can so that what we feel about the cars are not lost over time or the ages. My way of doing this is that my stang can not go to my son and daughter but must go to my oldest grandson who is three years and I still must fine another for my econd grandson that is one. If I can plant it in there heads at this age maybe they will not grow up thinking that a honda is the car to have. The classic Ford, Chevy or Plymouth/Dodge are the cars of there history not these import from countries where our men have fought and died in, these are not the cars of there history. Even as I speak our big three are in trouble but the optimum word here is OUR big three.
