You are looking at an exceptional, very special car. It is listed in the official K Code Registry. Here is my
story. In the fall of 1964, I was 18 years old and I purchased my first new car from Gene Hamon Ford Dealership in
Texas City, Texas. I special ordered the 289 High Performance model with 4 speed transmission. I became the proud
owner of the only K code, hipo Mustang in Galveston County. There are so many memories wrapped up in my car, it is
one of the hardest decisions I have ever made to now offer it for sale. I was 18 years old when I bought it and now
I am close to my 70th birthday.

If you know Mustang history, and I hope you do, you will appreciate the special place an original K Code car holds
in the 50 year history of Mustangs. Of all the Million plus Mustangs produced during the first generation 1965-67,
less than 1% were the high performance model. It came with the Special 289/271 horse, 4 barrel carb, solid lifter
engine.This the the engine Carroll Shelby used in creating the first racing Shelby Mustangs and the Cobras. When I
ordered it, in addition to the High Performance engine, in 1965 it only came with a 4 speed transmission, the
famous 9 inch Ford rear end, Mine has the 3.89:1 gear ratio. You could not get AC, power steering, windows,
brakes. It only came with a radio and heater. That was all I needed.

This car has no rust whatsoever. I went through a long slow process of restoration which was completed in 2009.
Since that time, It only gets out of the garage for an occasional car show or Mustang Club events. I have won my
class numerous times in judged shows.

The car is painted in its original color, which is also a very rare Phoenician Yellow as it came from factory, I
installed Tri-Y headers, a Hurst 4 speed shifter and added the new rims within the last 2 years, other than that,
she is a stock K Code.even down to the mechanical choke on the 4100 autolite 1:12 four barrel carb.

I know what my car is, I know what it's value is in the collector car market. You can look for a long time and will
not find a K code with this history. I only know of 2 other original 65 Mustang owners and neither one has a K
code.

Edmunds ranks the best used cars for 2013

Sun, 15 Sep 2013

When people ask us what car we would recommend for them, it's usually not easy to answer. To make a useful recommendation we must consider which of the numerous vehicle segments fits their needs best, and then choose one of the many vehicles offered in each segment. For some people, new cars don't meet their expectations of value, because they lose so much of it the moment they are purchased and driven off the dealer lot. For them, there's always the used-car market, where great deals can be found, but cars' histories of reliability and maintenance records - and perhaps that Certified Pre-Owned warranty - become ever-important factors playing into purchase choice.
To help out, Edmunds has done us the favor of assembling a list of the best used vehicles money can buy, covering model years 2006-2011, according to what it considers the most important criteria when shopping for used autos: reliability, safety, value and availability. That means unreliable, unsafe, super-expensive or limited-edition models don't appear on the list, but instead cars from each segment that are more likely to satisfy the general population.
There are some real goodies on the list, including but not limited to vehicles such as the capable Honda Fit, the cultish Honda Accord coupe (which can be had with a 240-horsepower V6 and a six-speed manual transmission some years), and the powerful Chevrolet Corvette. While Edmunds' choice of the Volvo C70 for best used convertible baffled us at first (not that it's a bad car), it redeemed itself by stating that the Mazda MX-5 still is an unofficial top choice if you don't require more than two seats.

Ford Fusion demand outstripping supply

Sat, 15 Jun 2013

The attractive new 2013 Ford Fusion has done wonders for the brand in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment - the vehicle is up nearly 22 percent compared to last year. But that sales momentum may soon hold steady due to low inventory levels of the new Fusion across the United States.
According to a report in The Detroit News, citing automotive data and Ward's Auto, Ford currently has a 39-day supply of the Fusion. That might sound fine, but a normally healthy average is about a 60-day supply. If Ford were to stop production on the Fusion today, there would only be enough vehicles available to get through another five weeks of sales, according to the News.
Currently, Ford produces the Fusion at its three-shift assembly plant in Hermosillo, Mexico, and will add production at its facility in Flat Rock, MI later this year. A Ford spokesperson told The Detroit News that when Flat Rock production comes online, the automaker will need to rush new stock out to the regions with the most demand for the Fusion. Ford has doubled its coastal retail market share, with huge amounts of growth in areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, the News reports.

Nuclear-powered concept cars from the Atomic Age

Thu, 17 Jul 2014

In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing and infrastructure damage brought on by two World Wars.
The development of nuclear-powered submarines and ships during the 1940s and 50s led car designers to begin conceptualizing atomic vehicles. Fueled by a consistent reaction, these cars would theoretically produce no harmful byproducts and rarely need to refuel. Combining these vehicles with the new interstate system presented amazing potential for American mobility.
But the fantasy soon faded. There were just too many problems with the realities of nuclear power. For starters, the powerplant would be too small to attain a reaction unless the car contained weapons-grade atomic materials. Doing so would mean every fender-bender could result in a minor nuclear holocaust. Additionally, many of the designers assumed a lightweight shielding material or even forcefields would eventually be invented (they still haven't) to protect passengers from harmful radiation. Analyses of the atomic car concept at the time determined that a 50-ton lead barrier would be necessary to prevent exposure.
