I have a 64.5 Mustang 260 with generator and power steering with an Eton pump. I am attempting to install origional factory airconditioning. I have mounted the compresor but now the Eton pump cannot be mounted back because the compressor extends to far. I am told that a factory Ford pump with a slanted reservoir may correct the problem or a remote power steering reservoir may also correct the problem. Does anyone know the correct way to fix this problem.

After you join the Mustang Club of America, you can ask that publication your question(s) and they usually are very prompt about a reply. Google them and go for it.

If it's a coupe that needs everything the value is really very little, and not worth fixing up unless maybe it was a convertible, or a 4-speed manual with V-8 motor. Sounds like a parts car to me if it's just an ordinary coupe that needs motor, interior, bodywork and paint. There really isn't such a thing as a 64.5 Mustang and you shouldn't pay extra for an early production car anyway. They are all 1965s as far as DMV and Ford are concerned.
I guess if you want a hobby and don't mind losing about half your money on a restoration, this might be a good car to learn some skills. You can buy very decent '65 coupes, daily drivers that look pretty good, for $6,000--7,500, and I'd encourage you to restore one of these rather than a wreck.

Kinda hard to hit this one without seeing it, but as a ballpark I'd say the car will sell in the $7500 to $12,500 range, depending on how bad the rust is.
If by "3-speed" you mean 3-speed manual transmission, that's a deduct on value. Also it sounds like it's not a GT, so that's a deduct as well. It could have a 200HP or 225HP engine, so that makes a difference, but not huge.
If someone offered $9K-$10K, I'd probably take it.
You can buy these in really nice shape for $22K--$28K
