In 1961, Lee Iacocca wanted to build a four-seater with bucket seats, floor mounted shifter, a weight less than 2500 pounds, and a final price under $2500. After extensive planning and research, the first Mustang rolled off the assembly line on March 9, 1964—only 18 months after the project was given the green light. Ever since the Mustang’s iconic release, it’s become a staple of American automotive history. Auto World is excited to showcase this late 1965 Mustang convertible with a 289 CID V8, Rallye wheels featuring red tire stripes, in factory Silver Smoke Gray and red interior. This striking combination is sure to be a centerpiece in any collection.
