1965 Ford Mustang Fastback

My dream car is a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback. I have a few facts I would like to share about this unique car. For starters, The test car had, in addition to the sound, the hood, the tires and the "GT 350" lettered on the side, a pair of very wide, dark-blue American racing stripes. It was this that really caught the interest of onlookers, especially the police. These big stripes might be made of blue serge, the way they attract the fuzz. However, the Mustang GT 350 will not have the stripes as part of the standard trim; dealers will add them on request. You should give some thought to the tender sensibilities of law-enforcement officers before asking for them.

Inside, the Mustang GT 350 is practically standard Mustang. A wood-rimmed steering wheel, which has a Cobra emblem at the hub, is added, and there is a small instrument "pod" perched over the center of the dashboard with an oil-pressure gauge and a tachometer (redlined at 6500 rpm). The front seats are stock Ford, but very business-like, 3-inch wide, Air-Force-type seat belts are fitted instead of the Brooks-Brothers-tie-with-a-buckle belts seen in most passenger cars. Finally, passenger room, up front, is the same as in any Mustang, except that the steering wheel dish (or, more accurately, the lack of it) has moved the wheel rim forward and the driver may adopt the classic arms-extended driving position.

Tell me some things I should add on my Message Wall !!!
