Question about 1965 Ford Mustang

5 Answers

While driving,a 1965 3 speed Mustang, there was a rattling noise and then the rear wheel started skidding. After stopping we could not move the car as it would just stall out. When we jacked the rear up , we could turn the rear wheels. Any suggestions on what could be wrong and what we should check. Thanks

If the rear is drum, which if original it is, I would pull the drum off. I have had this happen in the past and it happened that the self adjuster had come off and was getting wedged. The wheel would free up, especially when turned the opposite way. It will be obvious if it is or is not. If it is not the next place is the rear differential. The gears could be binding.

Just had my 1965 Mustang (3 speed manual) fixed with a rebuilt transmission. The problem is shifting the car. My mechanic can shift it "relatively" easy, but I can not. I can't find 1st gear, or any of the othere gears. The mechanic says its me and not the car. I find it hard to believe. The car has no noticable gear positions and no tactile feel to the changing. What should I do???? Any modern options available?

The hose is likely the differential vent hose. If you get under there and take a look around the rear end you will likely see where it was originally secured.
