I serviced the first Mustang we got and the first Bronco. Also the horns on the 64 1/2 were a lot bigger then the 65. They were Manly Horns!

Well crap! I just went back and see that you didn't ask about the hood per say but asked a different question entirely. Sorry.

Yep basically the hood skin wasn't "hemmed" at that little portion where the body line meets the leading edge, it was that simple. I made one once out of a 65 because the car was a 64, made a week after production in fact. There was another very rare part on this car being it was made in the first couple of weeks, hmmmmm, I'll wait until I have the floor again.

Yes but what if the 65 you were looking at had a six? Hmmmm? They all didn't come with V-8's.

Actually they were available with a 170 6 cyl, 260 2 barrel, and a 289 4 barrel. The 289 solid lifter engines became available in June of 64.

I'm thinkin 55 was the first yer for the nomad but I could be wrong

Chevrolet introduced it's first Nomad at 1954 General Motors Motorama in New York City. The Corvette Nomad. The first production Nomad was a full size Chevrolet in 1955.

I should have said 260 was not avalible in 65 .you are rite they were 2-289s offered i think 210 and 271 hp.

I capolized MADE but it is misleading so you are correct Released for show 1954 ,Made 1952.in 4 versions and the last one i know of 1969 chevelle nomad .but they may be others SO you have the floor. intersting the fastback in rear is called a Corvette Corvair

Yes you are right . The 260 was dropped in 1965 but not all 65 Mustang 289's had 4 bbl's . In fact the majority were 2v cars.

In 1967 Ford had a model change with the Mustang. What major safety change was made?
