...thanks all...keep them coming!

From what I am seeing/hearing...maybe the Ford Racing by Borla Catback (with black tips) may be the right option for me?! ...an no cutting I think, so I could save the original exhaust?!

You won it? Wow details! I'm kinda curious honestly. No thoughts of selling it and pocketing the $$$? Are they paying all taxes on it or do you have to take care of that?

For mods... pretty much the same motor as the S197. Full exhaust, tune, maybe some suspension work. Enjoy. Suggest Lund for the tune with a nForce tuner.

ya, pretty amazing! From Dream Giveaways. I am keeping the '15...but also won a '65 "K code" I am probably going to be selling, not sure I can afford both and have twin boys going to hit college soon!. They now give $ to help cover the taxes...we will see how it all works out, get them on the 8th!

People actually win those... wow this is the first I have ever heard of someone claiming firsthand to actually win. #jelly

I'd totally sell the 65 and keep the 15 as a toy or even daily it. Or sell both, get whatever you want and invest the rest haha.

That's awesome. Did you get receipts on the 65's restoration?
Pervious manager at my local O'Rielly's won a 2009 SuperSnake Don Prudhomme. Car was evil.
Personally I'd sell the S550, and keep the classic. Though I might be biased.

That's cool..the only thing I ever won was a free family portrait. I was around 13 and I entered and won. A customer of mine won a vette at a casino drawing. In not that lucky but it's nice that ppl actually won these things.

Thanks...I know...but I have a wife and twin boys that need $ for school...and the $ can help take care of some depts...and at the end of the day, I get to keep the '15, so can't be selfish. ...happy wife, happy life! :)

Here are some details if you know someone...
I just won an amazing sweepstakes (Dream Giveaway) and won 2 amazing Mustangs...but not sure I can keep both and complicating of selling one...even though it's killing me, I'm am contemplating selling the ‘65
Mustang GT "K code"! Not sure I can afford to keep both. You guys know this is a rare car and the basis for all the Shelby's.


Personal message me if you know someone that may be interested...at least I can keep the beautiful '15 50th Anv.!


I take possession on April 8th in FL.

Here is some good videos.

Dream Giveaway

There’s Still Time to Win the 2015 Dream Giveaway Mustang Sweepstakes

2015 Mustang Dream Giveaway

The Mustang Times on the 2015 Mustang Dream Giveaway




Here are some details from the Dream Giveaways site.

All-American from Day One
Designed especially for the true sports enthusiast, this powerful V-8 provides sports car performance to match Mustang’s sports car styling. Buyers intending to enter competitive events will appreciate this engine’s breathtaking acceleration…" - Ford Motor Company (1964)

On April 17, 1964, the Mustang debuted at the World’s Fair and showcased American ingenuity and pride for a new generation. Ford decreed a performance path for the all-American pony car that continues steadfast and true 50 years later.


Powertrain
The High Performance 289ci engine—the iconic K-code—was optioned into approximately 1% of all Mustangs in 1965. Today the $276 performance package is revered as the holy grail of performance from the Mustang’s early years.

The K-code Mustang GT fastback had the DNA of a racer. Ford’s performance-engineered 289ci powerplant, close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, beefy 9-inch rear end, and limited-slip differential turned the friendly pony car into a tameless and timeless thoroughbred. It’s no wonder that racing legend Carroll Shelby demanded that all Shelby 350GT Mustangs began life as K-code Mustang GT fastbacks.


Styling
This grand-prize 1965 Mustang GT fastback was fully restored in its original color—Wimbledon White. You’ll be proud and amazed when you open this thoroughbred’s sporty hood and see the expertly detailed engine compartment, including correctly coded engine components and accessories, hang tags, and factory assembly-line markings. If scoring big at judged Mustang events is a dream of yours, this 1965 Mustang GT fastback makes it come true. And if you prefer “get up and go” to “get out and show” this Mustang is a trip back in time. It will make you feel like you just drove it home from a Ford dealer 50 years ago.


Interior
The Mustang’s optional Pony interior features a classic all-American image of stampeding mustangs embossed onto the front and rear vinyl seats. This classic-style interior matches the 2015 50th Anniversary Mustang GT in the grand-prize package...the original interior is included.

1965 Mustang GT “K” Code Fastback
The Mustang That Started the Pony Car’s Performance Tradition
• High Performance 289/271 hp
• 4-speed
• Wimbledon White exterior
• Fully restored
• Pony interior

...it truly kills me to do this...maybe it doesn't feel real because I have not driven it yet...which will make it even harder! At least I will be a drive in it with by boys!

You can get a 2015 mustang any day , but how many times in your life will you get to own a clean 1965 289 Hipo for free ?

trust me had that thought...but nothing is for free! :) ...transport, storage, insurance and upkeep...and it's a rare car I would be nervous about driving like I'd want to! But, it is a win/win that I get not just any Mustang, but one of the 1964 50th GT's and the $ will really help support the family! ...happy wife, happy life! :thumb:

fwiw I think you are making a smart choice.....all of us would love both but the realities of keeping both unless you are already wealthy can put a damper on it. I'd have a hard time deciding but financially keeping the new one makes sense as I'll assume you'll have the instant depreciation that you get when you drive it off the lot/sell at auction/etc.

talk about 1st world problems.

...but loving the '15...and just did the Ford Performance Touring Cat-back with the black tips...I want to keep it as "factory" as possible, but have fun as well!
