Is it possible to make a 1965 ford mustang a hybrid?

Sorry, I know nothing about cars. I've always loved the look of a vintage mustangs like the 60s mustangs. Went on a ride in a friends 66 mustang and fell in love with it years ago. The thing is, the economy is pretty bad, and I'm in college. I'm in the market for a car, but I'm wondering if a 1965 ford mustang can be full efficient in any way... like making it into a hybrid?...
Also, is insurance more expensive for a classic car?
Thanks guys, just debating on getting one or not.

sure if you have some Friends help we have converted a few cars to all electric but it would ruin a perfectly good car get a stock six it's a good one to use. the 289's stroked to 360's would just spin in cerciles anyway with out a ton of add on frame work and eve nseen with the ford 427 with quad jets in them heck burns a gallon just to starty it but with the inline six they were good motors and good on gas and make the car more valueable please don't ruin a classic unless your going to fit it with jet engines,

It's possible to take any vehicle and make it a diesel, an electric or a hybrid. But is it practical - probably not. Hybrid cars should be designed from the platform up - modern light weight composite materials, modern safety features and state of the art drive trains.

A vintage Mustang with the small (170 or 200 cu in) 6 cylinder engine is a pretty economical vehicle. It won't push you back into the seat on acceleration, but that doesn't seem to be your objective. If you really want a vintage Mustang, go for it - but leave the hybrids to the engineers and keep the 'Stang as intended.
Insurance is actually less provided you don't buy a muscle car.

Not particularly because the steel in the car is heavy and an excellent conductor of electricity. But their are other possibilities, almost any carbeurated car can be converted to alternative fuels or fuel injection, so you may want to pursue those avenues

YEAH, as it is also possible to make an elephant to fly... good luck

Hey look sorry of been sarcastic, however now a days every thing is possible depends on how much you want to spend?
Which I guess not much, therefor I would advise against this idea,

WOW WOW WOW! Don't you dare spoil a beautiful car like that! Sure a nice 65 tang will mow through your gas and probably has some high emissions, but a baby like that should be left as it is, if your gonna try something like that on her, don't buy one

Even if it was possible, why would you want to?
That's a classic car.
One of the finest classic cars out there..
Why the hell would you ruin it?

And yes, your insurance will be higher.

it's possible, but not practical... try installing a overdrive transmission, this will slow down your engine and save gas... it's the popular way to go...
