The Mustang is the original muscle car; defined by its powerful, staunch and aggressive stance, it regularly leaves every other car in its wake – including the most highly-tuned modern super cars. Combine that insatiable speed and power with an exquisitely clean exterior and a distinct American charm - and you soon realise what makes this 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Convertible so special.

Currently listed via Samuel Laurence, London, with a reserve of £44,950, this Raven Black Mustang is one of the most near perfect models in existence. Originally manufactured in May 1965, it was delivered new to Phoenix, Arizona before culminating just over 100,000 miles across its decorated history. Complete in a stealth-inspired Raven Black exterior with matching interior and hood, the car boasts original panels with visible factory date stamps as verification. What is more, the numbers of vehicle are in accordance throughout, as the car also contains the correct gold rocker and air box in place. While, there is no sign of damage or wear and tear throughout the model as no expense has been spared to reinvent the V8 into one of the finest cars on the road today.

Just for an added extra, the Mustang is also fully fitted with crackle vinyl interior, factory power steering, Ford air conditioning, Raleigh style wheels and complementing Michelin X Tyres. Beautifully preserved and nurtured throughout the years, this Mustang V8 Convertible is a remarkable piece of motoring history that has been refurbished to stand up to any modern super car.
