The Mustang has been the epitome of the pony car for the better part of the last 60 years. This model is one of the best-selling performance cars in the world, totaling over 10 million examples made since April of 1964. Over the decades, many special versions were made. These include everything from the mighty Shelby models to modern-day supercharged monsters.
Rare models like Mach I, Boss 302, and the 429 have been thoroughly covered by authors and sought after by collectors. However, today we’ll discuss the Mustang model that doesn’t get as much attention. It was even discontinued for 13 years. This is the Mustang GT, which may be the best Mustang series of all time. The GT had power, an affordable price, and was the enthusiast’s choice. Check out the greatest Mustang GT models below.
26. 1965 Ford Mustang GT 289
The 1965 Mustang GT wasn’t a separate model but just a $165 package (via Mustang Attitude) that included several cool features. These were extras like disc brakes, additional fog lights, rocker panel stripes, and badging. Under the hood, buyers found a venerable 289 V8 engine with 225 hp initially.
The package wasn’t available on early 1964 cars, only on 1965 models. It proved to be popular with buyers looking to get some more performance, better control, and exterior features. Also, it was the start of the Mustang GT saga that spans until today.
