65 289 Convertible


My love for cars came at an early age, my grandfather owned his own repair shop in Anaheim Ca.

I worked as a mechanic for Villa Ford for over twenty years.

My dad and I worked on many classic cars over the years,the frst of mine was a 65 Mustang coupe that I bought when i was 16 years old.


A few years later I got the itch to buy another classic car. I ended up buying a car off the move "Fast and Furious 7" Sorry, it wasn't a Ford. I kept it for a few months and decided to sell it and get my dream car, a

65 Ford Mustang convertible.

The search began, a friend tracked down the car through multiple layers of other friends. The car had been owned by the same person since the early 70's and had 72,000 original miles on it. The owner had unfortunately passed away around 2010 and his wife hadn't been ready to see the car go up until that point.


Luckily she agreed to the sales price and the car way on its way to southern California. I have owned the Mustang for about 4 years now,

Much of the time was spent on getting it up to where it is at today. I've had the engine fully rebuilt topped off with a FiTech EFI Fuel management system, Tremec T5 transmission, Factory air that blows super cold, 

Power rack and pinion steering,

Road course ready suspension, coil over shocks front and back, new black paint job, new Convertible top and interior.
