Car description

1965 Mustang Convertible 289 C-Code automatic convertible. This car was built in San Jose California in June of 1965 and spent most of its life in Albuquerque New Mexico. I have owned it for 6 years and have always kept it in a garage and only driven it on sunny days.
Interior:
The car has a factory pony interior with the correct color combination, gauges and dashboard trim(its a true factory Pony). Notice the brown patina in the running horses on the seats - this is because they are original and have darkened with age. Steering wheel is original as is the radio. It has original AC that mechanically works, however it needs a charge. I have not had it charged because I never have driven this car with the top up. The car has a factory rallye pak. The tach and clock do not always work though. Front seat belts are original and still have the factory tag on the belt.
There appears to be a missing notch in the steering wheel. This is not a missing piece. The factory plastic has shrunk with age.
Exterior:
Car is silver blue metallic. Has the spoke style hub caps. The top is automatic and it is not the original fabric -- it is in great shape (its white) and operates as expected. The top is only up when I store the car for winter. Chrome bumpers are not perfect but look good. They polish up nicely bit have some small pitting.
Mechanical:
The 289 V8 2 barrel starts and runs fine. The car shifts nicely. It drives how you would expect a 52 year old car to drive - not like a modern car, but great for an old Mustang. I have taken this car on 300+ mile trips and have never had an issue. Has power steering and brakes.
The odometer shows 82,XXX miles and I believe that this is original. I had the opportunity to speak to the original owner's wife a few years back and her story of the car, as well as a mileage log I have for the car from the 70's seems to confirm my belief.
Known Issues:
- Speedometer squeaks and MPH is not correct. The needle jumps around. The mileage does turn over correctly though.
- The driver window needs some help running up and down correctly.
- Rear driver side window goes off its tracks
- 1970's style aftermarket FM radio receiver (mounted under dash on passenger side) add on is stuck on a single station
- Carb could use a little tweaking. I am terrible at doing this so I left it as the last mechanic who worked on it did.
