1965 Ford Mustang GT Hipo 289 K code Mustang Vin #5R09K174889 has a DSO of 75 built Jan 15th 1965 and color "O" Tropical Turquoise. I believe the car was in Arizona for half it's life then the rest up here in Colorado. As you know both dry climates and that is why the car is in such good condition. The original Hipo 289 which still retains the Hipo K code vin number on the block was rebuilt about 5 years ago. Hipo 289 heads, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds and distributor are still there. Unfortunately the carb was replaced with a later model Holley. Also the transmission has been replace with a later model 4 speed top loader. She still has the Ford 9 inch rear end, big sway bar and disc brakes. This is a very clean shell. The original paint is underneath the black primer and the body is in great condition. All original metal except for the hood and both rear lower quarter skirts. There is a little rust the size of a dime in the drivers floor pan and a section in the toe kick area of the passengers side (nothing catastrophic). There is no exhaust past the manifolds so I have only yard driven it. The motor starts right up no noises, leaks or smoke. The two things that I have found to be molested on the car are the radio panel was cut out and a previous owner attached sub frame connectors under the chassis (bolt on).
