Description

Rent an American classic. Enjoy driving a classic car. Whether going for a fun night on the town, or sight seeing in Northern California. This is a drive of a life time. This vehicle may not be listed here for long. Take advantage of an opportunity you don't want to miss out on. This beautiful 1965 Mustang comes with a V8 engine, powered top, power steering, air conditioning, 4 wheel power disc brakes, and original lap seat belts. Luggage: * This is a 4 seater vehicle with a large trunk. There is plenty of room for Luggage in general. * The sound system on the vehicle has an amplifier located in the rear driver side wheel well of the trunk do not place luggage on top of the amplifier. Luggage can safely go in the entire middle area of the trunk or passenger side wheel well area, but not on the amp in the driver side wheel well. Weather in Northern California: * Suntan Lotion, hats and sunglassess are strongly encouraged all year round. * For hot days the car has A/C * If you are new to California, the coolest weather is in San Francisco or along the coast. Also anywhere at night. Due to the warm California sun, suntan lotion, hats and sunglasses are strongly encouraged while driving top down. * Even in the Fall and Winters temperatures can range from the high 40- to the low 70s. Top down driving is still possible, though I would wear a jacket at night, if I was driving with the top down. Vehicle Condition: 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. If something happens we are available by phone and can help walk you through minor things such as jump starting the vehicle. If we can't walk you through it we will come out and fix the vehicle. 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.

Parking details

There are street parking spots along Sharp Park that are free and do not require a permit. Same thing for beach boulevard, do not park in a the lots. Look for the street parking spots. Only exceptions are in the red, or in a space visibly marked no parking

Guidelines

* This is a classic car from a previous era, when this car was built the speed limits were 55 mph, and the recommended stopping distances were longer. Please be respectful of this and be safe; drive slower than you would a modern car and give yourself additional stopping distance. * The car must be warmed up before being driven, if the car has been sitting overnight, this will take 5-8 minutes. If the car has already been warmed up once that day, it will likely either be warm or require less than 1 minute to warm up. *Startup Instructions The car starts fairly easily once warmed up, be sure the car is in park or neutral when starting the car,. During a cold start, there is a starting protocol. *Cold Start Step 0 - Make sure the car is in Park or Neutral. Step 1 - The Gas Pedal must be pushed all the way down to the floor atleast once (This activates the fast idle cam on the Carb), if this isnt done the vehicle will be possible to start, though difficult, and the car will run rougher until warmed up. Step 2 - Press the gas pedal to floor 6 times. A cold car requires more gas. Step 3 - Turn the ignition to start the car, while holding down the gas pedal. Turn the key for no more than 3 seconds. PLEASE NOTE This more often than not starts the car the first time while cold. Occasionally on exceptionally cold mornings it may take more than 1 attempt. Step 4 - If step 3 does not start the car repeat steps 2 - 3, 3 times Step 5 - If 3 attempts to start the car with pumping the gas pedal do not work. Attempt 3 times without pumping the gas pedal. If you hear it start to catch give it a little push on the gas pedal. Step 6 - once started from a cold start - the car will need 5-8 minutes for the engine to warm up. Do not drive before the engine is warmed up - (Vehicle will run rough, and may require a restart). Please note it is possible to start the car when cold without following these instructions, it will be both difficult and the car will run rougher until warmed up if fast idle is not activated. * Vehicle requires 91 Octane lower grade fuels will hurt the engine. Gas receipts must be stored in the Glove Box. *Vehicle requires Lead Substitute - I purchase it by the case, and I can provide it at my cost $4 per bottle. 1 bottle treats up to 1 tank. Accidentally using too much wont hurt the car. Let me know the number of miles you plan on driving and I'll provide enough for your trip. Lead substitue allows the car to run smoother and quieter. (increases the octane, and coats the valves and tappets with a substance that protects them, and quiets them down) If you run out of lead substitue and the gas station does not carry it, text me, and I'll direct you to a place that carries it, This is not an absolutely immediate concern but ideally should be done within about 30-50 miles of refueling. The car would need to be run without lead substitute for 2,000 - 3,000 miles before a valve problem would occur. * Modern cars have both a low fuel warning light, and when the car reads empty the car normally still has 1 gallon of gas left. This was not the case in the 1960's there is no fuel warning light, and when the guage reads empty the tank is empty. Please beaware of the fuel guage. * The vehicle must be in Park, or Neutral with the brake pressed to start, if you try to start the car, and hear nothing you are likely not in Park or Neutral. If you can confirm you are in park, and you do not hear anything while the turning to start the car, please pull and re-seat the battery cable. * The vehicle has been upgraded to 4 wheel disc brakes, and when operated properly stops very well. You will need to be familiar with how to operate non-antilock brakes. * The sound system on the vehicle has an amplifier located in the rear driver side wheel well of the trunk do not place luggage on top of the amplifier. Luggage can safely go in the entire middle area of the trunk or passenger side wheel well area, but not on the amp in the driver side wheel well. If you have any questions you may email me at carsbyjohnd@gmail.com.
