eBay Find of the Day: 1965 Ford Mustang Wagon – Click above for image gallery

Intermeccanica may be best known today for producing its Roadster, a Porsche 356 replica. Years ago, however, the company built a handful of uniquely styled automobiles for a variety of customers. One of those customers was the J. Walter Thompson Advertising Agency, which commissioned a Ford Mustang station wagon to be shown off to Blue Oval brass. The Ford execs never went forward creating a Mustang wagon of their own, but a few other folks did. The one you see here was built by Joe Ramp, and you can put it in your garage because it's for sale.

Starting with a 1965 Mustang hardtop coupe, Ramp stretched out the roof and created custom rear side glass along with the fabricated D-pillars. The builder tried to retain as much as the stock body as possible, so the rest of the car is all Ford-built Mustang.

Builder Joe Ramp decided to upgrade the powertrain in order to better haul around the extra bit of weight. A 5.0-liter V8 sits underhood and is paired with a T5 five-speed manual gearbox. The power is routed to an eight-inch Ford rear-end and 3.00 gears. Custom control arms and upgraded shocks help the Mustang handle any cargo placed out back.

The car appears to be a clean example of what could have been. RK Motors of Charlotte, North Carolina has listed the car for sale on eBay, with a Buy It Now price of $59,990. Currently, the bidding sits at $15,100, with an unmet reserve. Take a look at the car in the gallery below, and click past the jump if you want to hear it running.

      So they spend hundreds of hours researching the history, spend hundreds of hours building this car (and I love it) and they STILL get the grille pony pointing the wrong way? Really??

      had to laugh at the ad's explanation of the bench seat. my very first car was a 1965 Mustang, a $350 hunk of rusty junk I got when I was a senior in high school in 1972, bought with hard-earned money I made as a busboy for $1 per hour, plus tips. it was white with a red interior, 6 cylinder with a 3 speed, no radio, and only had one option: a bench seat, which looked exactly like the one in the wagon photo. it always amazes me that so many Mustang "experts" either deny this was ever available, or are totally clueless when it is mentioned. it was an option from 1965-1969.

      Being an owner of a 1968 Mustang coupe, I think Joe did a fantastic job in creating this concept car/wagon. It will turn many heads at any car show featuring Mustangs or Fords. I hope he gets a great price for his creation. Jim (DABEEST) Foster

      Interesting look. Kinda like it. It gives further depth into Ferrari's decision to make the FF as the body type chosen really isn't all that new to the industry. What could be interesting also, wasn't this car made around the time Ford tried to either purchase or partner with Ferrari? Of course no deal transpired, but Ford and his execs returned to the US furious about how the business proceedings panned out and started work on the GT40. And then a few year afterward, Ferrari fell into hard times financially, and was purchased by FIAT.

      as well executed as that is, it still looks wrong. I just cannot get into it. But since I'm in Charlotte, I may have to go by and see it. Funny, I usually can get into the oddities. must be getting old.
