Lot #652.1 - On the first anniversary of the Mustang, April 17th, 1965, Ford came out with an option package GT equipment group.

This GT, built at the San Jose, CA plant on July 28th, 1965, is quite unique in that it has been fully restored to concours condition and has less than 6,200 original miles from new. With the GT option of front disc brakes, dual exhaust hat protrudes through the rear valance, special handling package, fog lamps and grille bar, 5 gauge instrument cluster, lower GT side striping and a GT badge on the front fender. These cars were the latest in the new evolving Mustang performance line.
