1965 Ford T5 Mustang 289 Convertible 4-speed manual. Wimbledon White with Red interior, new white roof and steel chrome GT wheels with red-band period tyres. Restored to factory specification and fitted with its original 289 V8 A-Code (GT) 4-speed manual gearbox and Power Steering.
The Ford T5 is a rare car. Produced for the German European market with only a few hundred being delivered. However, the name Mustang was already trademarked and owned by two German companies Krupp and bicycle manufacturer Kreidler.
This meant Ford could not use the brand name “Mustang” without a potentially long-drawn-out legal battle and for reasons unclear today declined the offer from Krupp to buy the rights to the name for $10,000.
As Ford’s internal product name for the Mustang was T5 they decided to badge the German cars as such, removing all references to the word Mustang with only the radiator grille remaining as the last Mustang memento.
So here we have a very unusual and very rare Mustang that presents in lovely restored condition throughout and is a total pleasure to drive.
Just arrived in our showroom and awaiting pre-sales checks and service/MOT. Still fitted with its European plates and we are in the process of registering it with the DVLA as a Historic Vehicle for the first time in the UK.
