1975 Mustang

1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

“A new body style, the 2 + 2 Fastback Coupe, was introduced for the 1965 model year.
A newly introduced GT Equipment Group package was added as an option, which included an upgraded instrument cluster, dual straight-through exhaust system with flared, chrome tailpipe extensions and four-inch fog lights in the grille, among other features.”
“Base engines were upgraded to a 200 cubic inch six cylinder and a 289 cubic inch V-8.”

“The 1965 Mustangs had new (and more powerful) engine options, as well, that could be chosen for any model. The base V-8, known as the Challenger and producing 200 horsepower, was only $108 more expensive than the standard six-cylinder, while an extra $162 bought the Challenger Special, also a 289 but with 4-bbl. that produced 225 horsepower. The top of the line V-8 was the Challenger High Performance, which produced 271 horsepower.”
