Some of us want more from our classics. And more is what this 1966
Ford Mustang delivers. With a great coordinating paint scheme,
luxury A/C interior, and performance-built V8, this iconic pony car
is truly a cut-above.
The standout presentation on this coupe starts with the code-H Sahara Beige paint. We see plenty of nice Mustangs in more common colors, so we like that there was an investment in this factory-correct color. It has the kind of modern luster to look great against all the bright trim. Plus, this one has been custom crafted to offer hints of both a sporty and premium attitude all rolled into one classic coupe. You see this mix best on the profile where the 15-inch Halibrand-style wheels we remember from the best Shelbys are bridged by a golden brown triple stripe on the rocker panels. And we know you like how the racing stripes on the hood match this trim. There's even a premium tan vinyl roof that coordinates with this full earthtone arrangement.
When you open the door, you begin to realize how thoughtful the whole package is. With golden brown carpeting, light tan upholstery, and slightly darker piping, this color scheme not only looks great together, but also the interior and exterior are even in sync. More than just look great, you're going to feel the quality that comes from the right investments the moment that you sit down. These seats are now finished in supple leather, which is always a desirable upgrade. And because comfort is king in this classic, the air conditioning is also blowing cold from modern R134a. So we know you're going to love slipping behind the wheel of this upgraded pony. And when you twist the key, the extra exhaust note instantly lets you know there was a nice upgrade in the engine bay, too.
Under the hood are more signs of a thoughtful build. The motor looks like a performer with the Edelbrock air topper, cast valve covers, and other bright components radiating power from within the tidy black engine bay. But beyond just the attention-grabbing components that impress at car shows, this motor has real performance substance. According to the consignor, this 289 cubic-inch V8 comes from the performance master Keith Black. It inhales deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock aluminum intake. The V8 exhales with a commanding presence as ceramic coated headers feed a newer Flowmaster dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that keeps everything comfortable. Plus, the power steering and wide BF Goodrich T/A tires give you the kind of grip that's welcome in all situations.
Here's a memorable coupe that looks distinctive and has all the best features. So when a turn-key classic has been upgraded so correctly, you know your perfect premium speed machine is waiting. Don't delay, call today!
