Owner: Clyde Widrig
1965 Mustang GT Convertible
This convertible was ordered by the Ford Dealership in Charlotte, NC. and manufactured in the Dearborn, MI plant on March 23, 1965. The owner was a father and son who had the vehicle garaged for 35+ years and repainted the car to factory correct color and replaced the convertible top before putting it on consignment.
During the restoration, they took it down to bare metal, epoxy priming it, and then adding the factory-correct darkness. Plus, this one still has all the right GT equipment included from the factory, including the fog lights in the grille, the badges on the fenders, the Premium “Pony” package bucket seats, trumpet-style dual exhaust out back, three-spoke steering wheel, and ultra-desirable round gauge package that was specific to the GT cars in ’65.
GT’s were built from February through August in 1965, so this one is an early production being built the 3rd week of March.
* Factory GT Equipment Package (Front Disk Brakes, Special Handling package, heavy duty suspension, 5-gauge instrument panel, large master cylinder, fog lights, trumpet dual exhaust and GT Badging).
* Deluxe Interior Package (Pony seats)
* 289 HP-4-barrel carb

Clyde’s car will be showcased at the May 10th membership meeting. Reserved parking will be provided for the members cars. Clean em up, bring em out and show em off. Hope to see all of you there!
