"Hi Jesmond, I don't know if I told you when we were corresponding that I am member of the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club. Last Saturday the club held one of its more important rallies of the year called the Mid Island Rally. I went in the Austin A55 and was one of about 68 vehicles that went on the run. It had a good showing of vehicles some old model Ts right through the years, the latest one being a 1964 mini. You name the brand of vehicle and it was there. Mine was the only Austin. We had good weather and I understand it was about 180 miles start to finish. It extended from Timaru through to Geraldine and then into a private forest. That was a bit challenging climbing up to the hilltops on roads only made for logging trucks. I was pleased to get back onto tarseal once we were on our way home. As usual I didn't get anywhere in the rally, thats not my luck. Prior to starting off from the Clubrooms they had a Concours display . About a dozen or perhaps eighteen vehicles went in it. I decided to put the A55 in the display. I don't know when the judging took place and we heard nothing until after the placegetters in the actual rally were announced. There was a table of Cups and Certificates being handed out . All went until only one big cup remained. I thought it won't be me because Ive never won one yet and next thing my name came up. I won the 2014 Concours Cup in my class which was (Post War Vintage) Every comment about the A55 on that day was good and she's going well. So there you have it Jesmond,I don't know if any other vehicles you've had have won Concours but now you know at least one has."

      It's hard to imagine a car that has made a more spectacular debut than the Mustang did in April 1964.

      Stories abound of Americans queuing at dealerships just to get a look at the snappy new car; there's even a story of a truck driver driving through a showroom window so distracted was he by the Mustang. Another goes that one buyer slept overnight in his car, right there in the showroom, while his bank cleared his cheque.

      Demand was such that sales outstripped production by 6000 vehicles by the end of the first day of sales. Its success was assured to the extent that it took Ford less than two years to crank out a million Mustangs.


      • Power steering, Manual Brakes and Roof.
      • Factory Air con (Not working).
      • V8 powered – beautiful note.

      • A very well priced classic icon.

      There is no doubt that 1965 is one of the most popular Ford Mustang model years in the history of the car and by March 1966, Ford marked the creation of the millionth Mustang, signaling its significance in classic car history.

      Although the first few years were definitely good for Ford and its sporty Mustang, 1965 was the year all that hard work truly began to pay off. By 1965, most people began to associate the Ford Mustang with power and performance.

      The 1965 Ford Mustang was the car to have if you needed a daily driver and it was the car to have if you needed a weekend cruiser with a sporty edge. It was a car for everyone who enjoyed a well-made vehicle, liked to drive and enjoyed looking great doing it. It was the car to have if you were looking to win over your neighbor or hit the road for fun and adventure. It was also a must-have for enthusiastic drivers and car enthusiasts who simply liked to drive. All this still applies today.

      Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
