Driving Impressions of the Ford Mustang -1965
Over many decades, the Mustang has under gone numerous incarnations, but it always remained true to its value – offering a cost efficient and a powerful convertible that can battle from mild to wild. After driving 200 mi in three different cars, we can conclude that the 289 in. automatic and the 260 3-speed had commendable powerful brakes and power steering while the 289 4 – speed were lacking in both. The brakes behaved well at normal speed, but their size in comparison to the car is below average.

The long hood makes sure that the driver gets the sedan feel of the car. It is devoid of any sloppy craftsmanship and poor fit – making it a compelling preference in its own right.
Nevertheless, there were some equipment that we dearly missed and they included the lock in the glove box, the inclusion of only a single speed in the wipers and a windshield washer. But, we did give our nod to the overall styling of the body as the car was able to create the felling of speed and agility that it was made to convey. Earlier, Ford promoted the Mustang as the apt car for 4 passengers and the company neatly achieved the feature while maintaining its posh look. The driver gets plenty of space to get into the convertible as the door is very well placed and the shift lever can be reached quite comfortably.
