1965 Mustang Parts
Here's some sources for 1965 Mustang parts and 1964 1/2 Mustang parts in this section.
Although both Ford Mustang models are considered by Ford simply as being a 1965 Mustang, there are differences in many parts, both from a restoration perspective and finding the right aftermarket parts.
Differences in engine parts
occur because early cars had a generator rather than an alternator based electrical system.
Body parts differ,due to different stamping methods for items such as the hood and headlight doors.
Interior replacement parts for these Mustangs are more similar, but items such as carpeting are slightly different depending on the date of manufacture.
More detail on these specific differences can be found in the 1964 1/2 and 1965 sections.
I've classified the parts below into some popular categories and listed several sources and manufacturers that you can check out.
Specialty parts such as body kits, Eleanor kits and Shelby Mustang parts are listed separately if they warrant a larger description.

Suspension and Shocks
A good guess, if the car you're restoring has been in shambles, the shocks will be no different. Restoring or even improving the factory ride is easy with new shocks. If you need to buy shocks, check out this link for
Monro-Matic Plus Front Shock Absorber
The great thing about these shocks, is that not only will they dramatically improve your ride ( my old ones tested fine, but these rode trememdously better! ) they are cheap, compared to most things you're likely to need when doing a classic Mustang restoration.
