1965 Ford Mustang

     1965 was the second year of the Mustang, a car that caused a massive craze in the United States during the 60s. Not many major changes occured to the Mustang from the previous "half year". The main difference was the engines that were used. In 1964 (also known as "early 1965"), the Mustang came with a 170ci V-6 with 101hp, a 260 ci V-8 with 164hp, and a 289 ci V-8 with 210hp. Then in 1965, Ford stepped up the performance of the Mustang as they realized this car could become a marvel for car enthusiasts; it got a 200 ci V-6 with 200hp, a 289 ci V-8 with 225hp, and a high performance 289 ci V-8 with 271hp. Also, adding to this performance image was the newly introduced Shelby Mustangs.
