65 K Code?

Postby cp870 » Tue Jun 30, 2015 6:33 pm

New to the group and I'm about to pull the trigger on a 65 K code coupe..vin 5R07K250679

I'd like some more experienced advice on the value of this car. I did see it in person for about 20 minutes, the block does have the vin stamp as does the tranny. The carb seems to be a correct Autolite. The car did have a respray a few months back and doesn't appear to have any rust underneath or repairs visible but I didn't do a thorugh job.

He was asking 33,900 and 27K is on the table now. He listed it as a GT but it doesn't have the proper oval speedo for a GT, although the GT package with foglights, dual bezel and badging is there, but no GT gas cap.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!

65 GT did not have a GT gas cap.

I like to think of GT's coming in 4 versions

1. Factory
2. Dealer installed in the 60's
3. Owner installed some or most over the counter pieces
4. Restorer bolting on aftermarket pieces to get a premium on the car

Unless you have a build sheet and/or original paperwork with the car, it is very difficult to confirm if it is a factory GT. There are certain things that you should AND just as important, NOT find on a factory GT. For a 65, I would go straight for the lip that was stamped to fit the 66 style guages.

VIN stamps were not on all cars and have been reported by some to have been added later during a restoration. Carbs are repo'd now but you're in good hands with Fred.

Good luck

Thanks! I understand about the gas cap, but I thought the 65 GTs all JD the round speedo, not the sweeping long one? I've reached out to feed, hopefully we will touch base.

Thanks again for all the input!

65 GT's had the round speedo which is why the factory had to stamp the dash to fit it in.

This site is a great resource for GT details. http://www.mustangdreams.com/verify-196 ... ang-gt.htm

Also sent you an e-mail

What would you place a value of it at?? I'm on the fence at 27k.

Hard to put a value on this particular car without first confirming that its really a K. If it's the same car that shows up when Googling the VIN, there isn't enough detail to say one way or the other. Best option would be to maybe find a local person on this site to put another set of eyes on it for you.
