Well, it's a "A" code so it could be, does it have the GT light kit? the wiring hole through the radiator support should be pressed and not drilled. Also they have a special steering box with certain numbers I can't remember right now. Also should have the baffle pipes exiting through the rear panel

There is no fool proof way to tell, they can be faked, but only with a lot of work.

No 65 or 66 Mustang came with rack-and-pinion steering, that first came out in the 1974 Mustang II

There are several things you can look for, among them:

1. Build date after March 1965.

2. A or K code engine (in VIN).

3. Front disc brakes, heavy duty springs, sway bar and shocks (was available with other packages or in some cases individually-front discs).

4. Factory dual exhaust (was also available with non-GT's and C codes). Will have correct floor and rear frame rail reinforcements.

5. Grill lights (driving lights) mounted to the grill center with
horizontal bars.

6. Correct wiring harness and placement coming to and from the radiator core support to the light bar.

7. Correct switch and placement of on the under left hand side of the dash for the fog light switch.

8. Side GT stripes and emblems (no holes in fender for the standard MUSTANG script or running horse).

9. Chrome exhaust tips existing through the rear valance (round with chrome/stainless oval trim). Will show no sign of rear bumper guards.

10. Special GT gas cap.

11. No rocker panel molding so no mounting holes.

12. No quarter panel trim so no mounting holes.

you will need to look it up in a ford manufacturers shop manual in the front of the book, such as chiltons, every digit in the vin number is a separate identifying character that gives volumes of info, if its what you are looking form the id will jump off of the page if its a cob job that will show up also. also be aware of alternate vin number sites that are hidden on the body and frame, a car of that vintage could be considered a valuable classic, make sure all of the numbers match and that its not a kit car rebuilt on a pinto or escort frame. buyer beware
