Can We Get Some Love for a Straight Six Mustang?

built 1965 mustang 200 i6Mixed in with the enthusiasm for the hyperbolic GT500 and Kraut-devouring Boss, both the outgoing ’10-14 Mustang and upcoming ’15 set the thinking enthusiast community astir with their potent second-string motors. Be it the 305 horse V6 or [CLASSIFIED] 2.3L turbo, there’s a case to be made for lightness, better fuel economy and cheaper insurance.

So why not extend that logic backwards 49 years? Here we’ve got a beautiful ’65 coupe with a built 200ci I6, four speed and full complement of new or upgraded chassis parts. Specifically, it’s bored .060″ over (making it a 206ci), with aluminum pistons, a Clifford head, bigger cam and progressive triple-carb setup. If to step back a bit, that spec sheet nearly lines up with the powerplant in another Hooniverse favorite.

But what to make of the unmet reserve at $8,000? At $5-6-even 7,000, there’s a strong case to be made, but is this six-pot ‘Stang worth five digits?
