You probably guessed it right: the car was born with a six-cylinder engine, and given the people we mentioned above are typically looking for a V8-powered model, it goes without saying that finding a buyer isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Parked in what looks to be a garage, this Mustang doesn’t seem to exhibit the typical problems of a car that’s been sitting for a very long time. Unfortunately, eBay seller carllermo007 hasn’t provided any information on this front, so we know nothing about it anyway.
In other words, while this Mustang looks intriguing, it’s hard to say if the car has ever been restored or repainted. We don’t even know if the engine is starting or not, but judging by its current condition, it should at least turn over by hand.
Since it’s a 1965 six-cylinder Mustang, the engine under the hood is the 200 (3.3-liter) Thriftpower rated at 120 horsepower. Introduced specifically on the 1965 model, this unit was supposed to replace the 170 (2.8-liter) sibling previously offered on the 1964 1/2 Mustang.
And while it served its job very well, it retained the grocery-getter appeal of its predecessor.
Buying this Mustang isn’t necessarily something impossible, financially speaking. The car can be yours for $11,500, and while it needs some work, it could eventually be one very cool daily driver for someone who’s not exactly interested in V8 adrenaline.
