Ford Mustang GT (1965)

Ford Mustang GT (1965)

With massive sales in its first year, Ford pushed the Mustang further by bringing out the performance GT 2+2 in 1965. It used a fastback roofline to gain extra rear space, and had sporty touches such as the louvers on the rear pillars. As costs had to be kept down, little was done to the stock chassis which had a double wishbone front and leaf spring rear. A special handling package did come with the GT however, which included heavy duty springs and shocks plus quicker 22:1 ratio steering, Standard for the GT also were fade-resistant front disc brakes. Although three transmissions were available, the one to have was the four-speed Borg Warner 'Top Loader', while the engine to order was the 'K-code' which had 10.5:1 compression, four-barrel carb, solid lifter camshaft and high-flow air filter. Testers christened the K-code car 'a four-passenger Cobra'.
