1965 Ford Mustang Fastback "Grocery Getter"

Hi everybody,

i was busy at the beginning of the new year, so i will present you today one of two last builts from 2012.

Lets start with the 1965 Mustang (ex-Hertz GT 350).

Take a look at it, before i lay my hands on it:

Now, what have i done?

I did a "downsizing"...changes the wheels, removed the scoop on the hood, gave him a vinyl roof (i know, its not a extra option for it) and another grill. I smoothed the bumbers and painted it with alclad chrome, also painted the interior in a timless brown.

The most work were i has fun was to change the V-8 into a straight six. The Engine had to built out of a 54 Chevy Bel Air into a Ford engine. Some wirings and - voila - here it goes...

my Grocery getter from Miss Hertz (thats, while it is lettered on the plates), her 65 Mustang.

Her beloved son John is the one, who gave her car a sporty touch. He mounted the scoops on the quarterpanels, changed the stockgrill ;)

Have fun with the pictures.

Years ago, a Mustang with a vinyl roof and a 6 cylinder engine would spark no interest with me. Today I look at it differently. Age must be a factor. Cool build and original ideas.

I wouldn't mind driving that today! Pretty much a Mustang fastback that someone added Shelby windows to. I remember people doing that. It's good that you put hub caps on it because a six cylinder Mustang would have had four lug wheels.

Nice save of a junker!

I agree that to turn a V-8 Shelby into a strait six would normally be an abolination. You have done this one justice!

This is neat for a couple of reasons..... It is very accurate and well built...and..... there were probably a lot more six cylinder Mustangs built than those with the monster motors!!!!

That looks great, Dominik! I especially like the vinyl top, which on the fastbacks, at least from what I've seen, aren't very common.

Interesting point about 4-lug wheels on the 200s, Tom, I never knew that.
