This is a 50+ year old classic car, great efforts have been made to make it reliable, though due to the age it is possible that a maintenance event may occur.

A classic car is not the right vehicle for every occasion, if a maintenance event will ruin your trip please choose a different type of vehicle.

1965 Ford Mustang1965 Mustang Convertible - Drive the American Dream15518
It was amazing driving Highway 1 with the top down, it doesn't get any cooler than that.
John's Ford Mustang drove like a champ. It is a beautiful vehicle and hums like it's supposed to. There were a couple Areas of wear and tear as is expected from a 1965 model car, but that did not deter from the trip in any way. I would rent a car again from John again when I'm in San Fran.
I highly recommend renting the 1965 convertible mustang from John. John was very accommodating when I needed to change the rental dates. The mustang is in great condition and maintained very well. Thank you John for making our day very memorable!
What an incredible experience and an awesome car! John was super great to work with. He made sure the car was spotless and that we understood everything about how it worked. I can't wait to rent from him again!!!
Renting this car was a dream come true! Fantastic condition, great fun to drive and a true American classic, I can't recommend it highly enough. John was also extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating and gave us a really warm welcome. Make your dream come true too and rent it today!
John's Mustang is beautiful and in stellar condition, and most importantly, was a pleasure to drive!
John himself was very professional, helpful, and accommodating.
All in all, a great experience. Highly recommended!
A once-in-a-lifetime experience ! An old friend of mine was in SF for the WE and we were dreaming of cruising along Highway 1 in a Classic. All I can say is that thanks to John and his incredible 1965 convertible Mustang we had the time of our lives...
John has been incredibly accommodating to have the car ready in time, and delivered and picked-up at our convenience. We could instantly feel his passion his classics (he also has a 1965 Corvette that I would love to check some day!). We were impressed by the perfect condition of the car, and how easy it was to drive. A mix of power (a V8 with an incredible noise) and smoothness, what a blast. A weekend that we will remember for many many years.
So all I can do is highly recommend going on an adventure with John's Mustang !
