  1. Friend has a 1965 Mustang GT Convertible A code with a Hypo motor. I guess A code Mustang GT had a hipo motor just like the K code?

  2. Every one seems to have a HI PRO these days. I can not answer to the code.(Eng. swaps) But a HI PRO engine is easy to I.D.
    They do not have a vacuum advance on the distributor.
    They have a duel point distributor.
    They have solid lifters.
    There may be other indicators that i have not listed. But the above will i.d. a high pro eng.

  3. “A” code is the 289 4V engine, with hydraulic lifters. The “K” code is the 289 4V High Perforance engine with solid lifters, 10.5:1 compression, mechanical advance dual point distributor, long branch cast iron exhaust manifolds, etc. Also check the rear axle, as “K” code cars have a “9 inch” rear axle. Also very unlikely that a “K” code car would have the C-4 automatic. Ford made a few in 1966 so Shelby could make a GT 350 for Hertz.
    Your friends “A” code car could have had an original “K” code engine swapped in at any time, even when the car was new at the dealer. Or the “A” code engine could have been modified at some time. But unless Ford made some huge, one time only, unverifiable mistake, an “A” code car would not have originally been delivered with a “K” code engine.

  4. I am searching for my 1965 Mustang ,sold in Southern California in 2004. I restored the car with my father for my sweet sixteen in 1986, and only sold it after having a child. Car Specs: Burgundy, black vinyl hard top, black pony interior bench seat, A/C unit, 289 ci ZV V8. I turned 50 (now 51) during the pandemic, which has me feeling very nostalgic, so I’m looking for it with the dream of buying it back. I tried searching for it by the VIN number, but no luck with the old 11-digit VINs. I have the name of the guy who purchased it, his driver’s license, the VIN, the vehicle license plate, but I haven’t had any luck finding it. If anyone has suggestions for searching for my ’65, I’d sure appreciate it. VIN5R07C199629
