Here are some details from the Dream Giveaways site.
All-American from Day One
Designed especially for the true sports enthusiast, this powerful V-8 provides sports car performance to match Mustang’s sports car styling. Buyers intending to enter competitive events will appreciate this engine’s breathtaking acceleration…" - Ford Motor Company (1964)

On April 17, 1964, the Mustang debuted at the World’s Fair and showcased American ingenuity and pride for a new generation. Ford decreed a performance path for the all-American pony car that continues steadfast and true 50 years later.

Powertrain
The High Performance 289ci engine—the iconic K-code—was optioned into approximately 1% of all Mustangs in 1965. Today the $276 performance package is revered as the holy grail of performance from the Mustang’s early years.

The K-code Mustang GT fastback had the DNA of a racer. Ford’s performance-engineered 289ci powerplant, close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, beefy 9-inch rear end, and limited-slip differential turned the friendly pony car into a tameless and timeless thoroughbred. It’s no wonder that racing legend Carroll Shelby demanded that all Shelby 350GT Mustangs began life as K-code Mustang GT fastbacks.

Styling
This grand-prize 1965 Mustang GT fastback was fully restored in its original color—Wimbledon White. You’ll be proud and amazed when you open this thoroughbred’s sporty hood and see the expertly detailed engine compartment, including correctly coded engine components and accessories, hang tags, and factory assembly-line markings. If scoring big at judged Mustang events is a dream of yours, this 1965 Mustang GT fastback makes it come true. And if you prefer “get up and go” to “get out and show” this Mustang is a trip back in time. It will make you feel like you just drove it home from a Ford dealer 50 years ago.

Interior
The Mustang’s optional Pony interior features a classic all-American image of stampeding mustangs embossed onto the front and rear vinyl seats. This classic-style interior matches the 2015 50th Anniversary Mustang GT in the grand-prize package...the original interior is included.

Tim,
Check the rules. There is a cash alternate IIRC.

Thanks...yep, looked at all the options. The cash will be way less in the long run. This path really is a win/win...I get to keep the '15 50th Anv. and the money from the '65 (again, you can't imagine how this decision kills me) can help my family pay off some debt and go towards my kids schooling. So it really is the best choice for my situation, I get an amazing car while also supporting my family! ...and I get to own a '65 K code if only for a little bit! :shock:

If you are planning to sell it, please remember to put a price in the other thread you are running. If you read the rules there you will see that the price can always be changed by you but you have to start somewhere.
