Photo of a 1965 Ford Mustang 289 Coupe (Monto's Mustang)


I purchased the car 8 years ago in Southern California. I am the 3rd registered owner of the vehicle. It was built in January of 1965 at the Ford plant in San Jose, California so it is a true California Mustang. It has also never left the state with the 2 previous owners. It was delivered to Mel Burns Ford Dealership in Long Beach, Ca. in January-65. I have obtained an original window sticker as it appeared on the show room floor.
