I didn't even know that the Mustang existed back in the the 60's, until I took a short trip with my dad and my brother to a farm that is right behind our neighboorhood. The new owner of the farm was moving in so we thought we should help them unload some stuff. I was in the horse arena when I saw the owners 1965 Mustang Convertible on a trailer.
I immediately fell in love with the car and I was staring at it and touching it the whole time we were there. I wanted it bad.
I did my research on classic Mustangs and basically knew the car inside and out. I rode my bike down to the farm again and studied the car. It was all apart because it got repainted, but not put back together because unfortunately, the guy who painted the car had a stroke and died. I noticed it had the dual trumpet exhaust like the GT's had. I realized I might of had a 1965 Mustang GT Convertible on my hands.
I came back again to the farm and I met the owner again. I questioned him about the car and asked him if I could pop the hood. He said sure, so we opened the hood. He had mentioned that he has all the parts for the car, including an upgraded Pony Interior. He also said that the car came with the rare front bench seat option, which only about 2,100 cars came with. Anyway I looked at the VIN I knew that GT cars had stars on either side of the VIN. My heart sank when I realized that this car was a GT.
This was the rarest of Mustangs. A 1965 Mustang GT Convertible w/ AC and rare Front Bench Seat. It was a shame knowing I couldn't afford the 15,000 dollar price tag he had (I'm only thirteen) and my dad didn't have the money. It was also a shame knowing I won't be able to drive this as my first car. I hope I atleast get to see it restored one day, but for now, I have my brother in law's dad's 1968 Mustang Shelby GT350 to enjoy. :)
