Here is another K code coupe offered on Ebay by seller stlouiscarmuseum in a reserve auction opening bid of $44,895.00 and a Buy-It-Now of $48,900.00:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-GT ... ars_Trucks

Numbers matching ’65 K-Code GT Coupe! Finished in factory correct colors of Raven Black over Blue vinyl bench seat! Fully restored and in the K-Code registry! This car is ready to go!

In Mustang circles, enthusiasts of early cars will rave about the rare, and sought after “K” code designation. For those of you who are unaware, this infamous “K” is a very tough option to find in any of the 1.8 million Mustangs produced from 1965-1967. Only 7,273 cars received this K-code performance option, and it was the exact vehicle selected by road racer, Carroll Shelby, as his platform vehicle for the ever-popular GT350! The option included a 289ci V8 built with a host of durable performance components to produce an incredible 271 horsepower at 6,000rpm along with a heavy-duty suspension! This was .95 horsepower per cu in of displacement which was quite an accomplishment! Because of this fact, these small lightweight powerhouse engines also found their way into the original Shelby Cobra roadster just two years earlier! Ford also caught the attention of European manufacturers who elected to use these dependable engines as well. They included Sunbeam, Lotus, Lola, and Cooper to name a few!

We are very excited to offer this 1965 Ford Mustang GT K-Code Coupe! The car is finished in its factory color combination of (A) Raven Black over rare (32) Blue vinyl bench seat with armrest. The car maintains its original numbers matching Hi-Po 289ci K-Code motor and 4-speed manual transmission that has been retrofitted with a Hurst shift lever for more precise throws. The motor wears a polished Cobra aluminum intake and a Speed Demon carburetor. The car is further fitted with a Rally-Pac clock/tachometer, GT equipment group (HD suspension, 22:1 steering, front disc brakes, 4-inch fog lamps, five-dial instrument cluster, GT badging, hood accent molding and triple stripe on lower body), radio and antenna, reverse lights, front seatbelts and styled steel wheels wrapped in P205/70R14 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 dual red line radial tires.

This Mustang was restored in Phoenix, Arizona roughly 7-8 years ago and entered into the K-Code registry. From there, it was purchased and enjoyed by the previous owner back in its original DSO of Indianapolis. While the car does have several add-ons that make it more fun to drive (Hurst shifter, radial tires, Locker rear end), it is a largely original car and still wears many of its correct K-Code equipment including 610 lb rear leaf springs, motor mounts, and Hi-Po fuel pump. The majority of parts that should be date coded are and the body is exceptionally straight, with even panel gaps and no signs of accidents in its past. The car’s undercarriage, while not done to a councours level, is nicely detailed with a full header-back stainless steel H-pipe exhaust attracting much attention. The under hood appearance is also nice, with gloss finished on most components, Autolite battery cover and correct tower clamps on Ford brand radiator hoses. The car comes with an original 1965 owner’s manual and shows 23,228 miles, which likely represents 123,228 but we are not able to verify this. The car is a fully functional and rather unique example of Ford’s hottest 1965 Mustang and should make for quite the show pony. We are excited to work with the next owner of this wonderful K-Code; please don’t hesitate to ask any additional questions! Thanks for looking!

This car is back with a few changes from another seller.
It has bounced a few times at auction over the past few years with no sale at any of them.

I owned this one for a few years. Paid $12K for it in 2000. It spent its first 35 years in Indiana with the original owner.

Do you have any input regarding the current sellers description?

It is a true factory GT and the original data plate and owner's manual were in the glove box. The exterior / interior colors and bench seat are correct. The car had the original engine and trans and both were VIN stamped. Original rear was there but the 3rd member and bumper plate were replaced with a new posi unit from Currie.

The engine was rebuilt in '99 before I got it. It was 0.030 over and had the correct internals and heads. (Cam had more lift/duration than stock) Everything was correct except that it had an early screw together hipo fuel pump.

Fully restored seems to be a bit of a stretch. Even in these photos I can see it has the same yellowed sun visors and headliner (was a smokers car). Still has the old worn gauge cluster. (it was the original one with the correct amp meter wiring for '65). Unless someone spent a lot of effort on it in the last two years, the undercarriage is not very detailed, certainly not restored.

The original May 65 AM/FM radio is gone. I am sure someone sold it for a small fortune. It also had '66 removable Rotunda head rests and a remote trunk release.

When it was for sale at the Saint Louis Car Museum, the intake /exhaust manifolds, carb, and shifter were missing. They seem to be back but I would check closely to see if they are the correct ones.

I guess everyone has a different definition of rust, but this was not a California kar. The quarter panels were replaced with NOS ones but the frame rails still needed work. The floors were not bad but some rust in left rear floor pan and left floor to firewall transition. Maybe this has been fixed but I can still see it in the undercarriage photos in the old eBay listing link from above. I would inspect these areas closely: front frame rails behind the shock towers and rear frame rails at the leaf spring attachment points.

Original owner took it to the Auburn auction around '98. On of the local guys bought it before the auction and did the paint/body work and the engine rebuild. I bought it off ebay and flew to Fort Wayne and drove it back to Atlanta. It was my daily driver for 4 years and it ran great. I had a link to a detailed web site for it on hipomustang.com Reader Rides page. The car always generated a lot of interest and I sold it to a person in AZ who was a member on this forum (wish I had kept it). He rebuilt the trans and had it painted. He also put on TriY headers and cobra intake. Next time I saw it surface was at a Mecum auction in 2013. It bid up to $39K but did not meet reserve.

The was a really cool kar and fun to drive.... but not $46K worth of fun. So much for the thought of ever being able to buy this one back...

Thank you very much for all of the helpful input on this Kar. All of this history will help someone, if they read this, make a proper decision on purchasing this Kar. It is good to have someone chime in here on a previously owned Kar.

In the 1960's they all were smoker's cars. I've found plenty of weed in used '60's cars to know that !

It is disappointing to me when people change out the original leaf springs and sway bar. These tend to get changed just to say that they are now new. The problem being that the originals are tough to find.

Agree with that. I guess the problem is sometimes the rear end sags and the springs are just swapped out as a "quick fix". The originals then get tossed?

Looks as though the Buy it price dropped "slightly" from $48,900.00 to $43,900 through all the listings above. Still way over the "market"...

The highest and most prolific bidder, 46 bids, on this auction has a zero feedback for whatever that is worth.

I like the bidders that have one bid on 25-30 different cars at one time yet somehow never win an auction. :lol: :lol: :lol:
