The 1965 Ford Mustang project started more than 10 years ago, but for one reason or another was never completed. The car changed hands in 2016, and about 12 months later this bad boy was back on the road. The builder enjoyed it to for a while, and at the end of 2022 he decided to move on to another project. The 1965 Mustang Fastback got sold real quick at Bring a Trailer. Let's see why.
