1965 FORD MUSTANG K Code for sale

Price: $99,000
Now for sale this very rare K-code High Performance 289 Mustang in factory Raven Black with black trim and 4 speed manual combo. For sale from Hobart, Tasmania.

If you were a Mustang buyer in 1965, the ultimate option at the top of the list was the 271hp K-code Hi-Po 289 4V Windsor small block V8.

Over 550,000 Mustangs were produced in the 1965 model run, but only 7,273 were produced with the expensive K-code option.

The K-codes were initially offered with a four-speed manual only (close ratio Top Loaders of course) and featured upgraded conrods, pistons, compression, heads, valves, solid lifter camshaft, manifolds and carburettor. To top it off the engine sported a chrome air cleaner cover with '289 high performance' emblazoned on it. Put your foot down and an extra 50 horses were on tap resulting in around 271hp being produced by the sweet revving small block.

The K-code also scored dual exhausts, front disc brakes, a beefed-up clutch and driveline (the only early mustang to receive a 9" limited slip diff) to cope with the extra urge and more enthusiastic use. All this added up to a significantly expensive option, and given several other lesser 289 versions were available, resulted in only limited numbers being ordered.

Adding to the status this performance package was quickly spotted by Carroll Shelby, seizing upon the K-code as the basis for the first all-conquering Shelby GT350 road and track cars.

This rare Raven Black beauty also features the factory 16:1 quick ratio steering box, twin point distributor, chrome rocker covers and 4 spot Kelsey Hayes front disc brake calipers. The current long term owner has fitted the GT Performance Pack steering column mounted Tacho and Clock and the GT driving lights.

The Mustang was imported to Queensland in 2003. Repainted in the USA in 2 pack Raven Black, the K Code features an immaculate black interior and is showing 65,959 miles.

Owned since 2006, the K-code has been meticulously maintained. The only additions being the driving lights, Tacho and clock, and the addition of the American Torque Thrust 17" wheels. These are fitted with Pirelli Dragon Sports 215/45R17 on the front and 235/45R17 on the rear. The Mustang has also been slightly lowered. The original 14" steel rims with hub caps and trims are supplied with the car.

Located in Hobart, Tasmania for inspection by appointment. (Ref. 6291)
