1965 Mustang Fastback “Toxic” Heads To
If a car is heading across the auction block at Barrett-Jackson, you know
that it has to be very nice. One of the most unique and famous 1965 Ford
Mustang fastbacks around is heading to the Barrett-Jacks Northeast 2019
auction and is lot number 704. The 1965 Mustang fastback is called Toxic
and is a complete restoration that was completed in 2017 by Buckeye
Classic Car Restoration.
Since the restoration was completed, the car has driven only 60 miles.
With such a unique and meticulous restoration, the car has won numerous
awards since it was built including Armstrong Street Scene – Grand
Champion Car, Auto Rama Summit Racing I-X Piston Powered – First Place in
Class, MCACN Platinum Pick Judges Choice – Ford Modified and MCACN Blue
Ribbon Award – Best Resto-Mod, scoring 993 out of 1,000 points. Every one
of the awards the car has won is included with the sale.
The car is very straight, and the Maier Racing fiberglass parts that are
on the car were molded for superior fit. The color isn’t something out of
Ford’s 1965 Mustang fastback pallet and is called Ruby Red Pearl. Lots of
custom touches are on the car with Grote headlights, LED taillights, dual
Cobra mirrors, Cobra emblems, and lots of billet and brushed aluminum
The wheels are custom Boze forged 18-inch Toxic units. The interior is
black leather and has the original feel while being all new. The doors
have lots of billet parts, and a 14-inch Formula steering wheel makes the
dash look good. The car has 2-point Crow enterprises seatbelts, black
billet shifter, and a Retrosound head unit with lots of custom speakers
Power for the 1965 Mustang fastback is from a Blueprint 306 cubic inch V8
making 400 horsepower with aluminum heads and dual 500 cfm carburetors.
Power goes to the rear wheels via a T5 5-speed transmission and the rear
from a 1993 Ford Mustang. There is no indication of what this 1965 Mustang
fastback might go for.
