Which Ford Mustang looks cooler? 1965 or 2005?

I fell in love with the '05 Mustang when I first saw a photograph of it in a issue of Life magazine. I had no idea it was remake of the '65 Mustang.

Me and my dad visited the nearest Ford place. I had the opportunity to sit inside the '05 Mustang just to see what it looks like inside. It looks so cool. Leather seats, radio, cd player, v6 , too cool!

I love the way they've designed it and remade it. Cool car. I'm praying to get one when I get my licence. I'm 18. Still learning.

You can never go wrong with a classic so IMO I would say 65, a lot easier to work on to compared to an 05.

How can you possibly expect an objective answer, to a purely subjective question ? In other words, since 'taste' determines the answers you will get, how can you expect a 'right' answer ? The answer is, there is no 'right' or 'best' possible answer to this question.

The 2005 is based on the '69 mustang, not the '65. If you're gonna' get one, go for the GT model w/manual transmission. Now that will be a driving experience...

For pure cool you have to go to the 65'. For practical, then it has to be the 05,06,07. It has all the new safety features and improved handling and better performance.
It is really which one do you want. Each one has its own special features, which ones do you want? At least with the 65- you can get antique plates and save on the licensing and taxes on the car. Good luck

I have loved Mustangs since I became aware of the differences in cars. I even like the Mustang II's now, especially the King Cobra.
In regards to one over the other...They are both cool.
For a young driver, I would suggest getting a beater for the first 2 years or so. (This in order for you to learn how to actually drive) It is one thing to be a steering wheel holder, and something else entirely to be able to read the road and the other drivers around you. If you have even a somewhat powerful car, and you go throigh your first winter, you have a much higher chance of finding that one special telephone pole!
If you wreck your first beater, it is a lot easier to handle than paying for a car that is sitting in the junkyard...
BTW, a beater doesn't necessarily have to be ugly or rusty or a Yugo...

More to your question, the 1965 model is nice, but the trade-off is found in the price of parts and frequent repairs.
Also, a carb does not generally get any kind of reasonable fuel mileage, UNLESS it is tuned precisely to the engine by somebody who knows what they are doing with it.
Fuel Injection does not have this issue.
Creature comforts are also a big issue for comparisons of the old VS the new.
My 1986 F350 is VERY spartan in creature comforts. So I have to update it, or buy a new truck...
Either option is not cheap.
But it all boils down to what you personally enjoy, as you will be the one behind the wheel.

I also reccomend that you don't limit yourself to these two years. There are MANY good models to choose from.
For me, I would get a '5 1/2 anniversary model. Such as the 30th (1995 1/2) or the 2000 1/2...
I have had several Fox body Mustangs, and loved them all.

Good Luck with it!

The 2005 looks cooler although some vintage car enthusiasts may call that blasphemy. to me, the newer model looks more solid, like it can actually handle taking quick turns and go over bumps in the road without rattling your teeth. It not only looks that way but is actually true, with advances in shocks and suspension, the 2005 rules in that aspect and every other driving aspect.

The only thing good about owning a 65 mustang is the bragging rights of having a classic car. It would not be a daily driven car. For functionality, the 2005 wins.

I can't believe you are asking this question because I was just about to ask the same question!!!!!! I have the same exact problem. I love the new Mustangs! (We have a 2006 V6). It's awesome and we get complements from strangers everywhere we go! However, when I need to buy a car for myself I have no idea which one to get. I personally LOVE our Mustang, but I decided I LOVE the 1965 more. I really want one SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you get what you want!! Mustangs are my life! Good luck! Oh yeah... I think that either one is totally cool even though I like the 1965 Mustang more. I'm sure you would love either one!

V6 is weak. '65 looks cooler imo, if it has a nice paint job.

The new model is sleek and modern but where did all the styling cues come from...the 60's model....the cars from the 60's and 70's had more personality than the ones around these days...you can tell that computers are used to design the cars...the looks are so bland...classics like the 67 Shelby GT500, 69 Camaro Z-28, 69 Charger R/T, 67 Firebird, 67 Corvette Stingray, and 62 Lincoln Continental are timeless because there was beauty and grace to the design that only a man who loves automobiles can give....more of a blue collar homegrown feel.

Now you know how I felt when I first saw the 65, it was love at first site, and I was lucky enought to buy a new one in Sept of 64 at the age of 19. You can't imagine how cool it was to cruise around California in that car, it was way ahead of all the other designs at the time and really stood out on the street. There was nothing cooler.

1965 Mustang is one bad muscle car. Theres no doubt that an '05 performs like the dream car it is, but I much prefer the look of classic steel cars. It's '65 for me.

The 1965 is much cooler then the 2005. If I could find a 1965 stang I would buy it.
