  • Happy 50th Birthday to the other love of my life

    ...and I didn't mean the wife.

    This month the other love of my life turn 50 years old and she looks better than when she rolled off the San Jose factory floor in 1965.

    Some details about her:
    1965 Mustang Coupe - Factory GT (A-code)
    Factory 4 speed manual
    I rebuilt her from the ground up, total resto in 2013.
    She has had her motor beefed up - now running a 347ci stroker - churning out around 450HP.

    If only I could fit my VBM Junior and grinder in her boot to make a mobile coffee cart with style.

      Thanks Mal.

      I wish I drove her more. The weather lately has been all over the place. But at least I can make heaps of coffee in between.

        I just love seeing your photos of her and having seen some of the progress photos too, I am glad I can appreciate the work you put in.

        I hope your missus appreciates the beauty of the Mustang too!

          Looks pretty clean. Is that 450hp at the wheels? Looks N/A too, good effort.
          Are the plans to keep it as factory original as possible or would you perhaps supercharge it?

            Hi scoota_gal

            Where did you see some of the progress photos?

            Yes. The missus enjoys a cruise down the strip heading out for a coffee

              Hi noidle. It's 450hp at the motor. No plans to up the power otherwise I'll need to change the transmission and diff. And stiffen up the body and possibly change the suspension (modern) and brakes. Currently I'm running a locker diff so it hooks pretty well.

              Keeping it factory looking.

                  Either there are two of you who have done a resto on a 65 'Stang (which would be a massive coincidence) or we're also flickr friends.

                    Wow. I bet she gets a few admiring glances. Well done.

                      Might be a coincidence as I don't use Flickr.

                        That's a sweet looking machine, well done. Sounds great too, video needed a few blips of the throttle!!

                        Cheers

                          Hi Mate, heres another video of when we got the motor started. open headers, no exhaust.

                            Best coincidence ever!

                            I just had a look over at the flickr friend's 'Stang. Definitely not yours...but I bet you know it. He is also a member here, so forgive my confusion.

                              Very nice and clean pony.
