1966 Ford Mustang GT
Recently restored 1966 Ford Mustang GT. Original California car with only 53K miles, extremely clean/original floor pans and frame rails - solid car. Power steering, power brakes/front disk brakes
Original was A code with automatic transmission, partial restoration by previous owner included many performance upgrades, such as: 1990 302/5.0L HO V8, Trick Flow aluminum heads, valve train and cam, 5-speed WC T-5 transmission with Hurst shifter, TRW forged pistons, ARP hardware, Ford Performance dual roller timing chain, Edelbrock aluminum water pump, Weiand intake manifold, 600 cfm carb, MSD distributor and coil, 7-quart oil pan, stainless fuel lines, Global West upper and lower control arms and tubular tie rod adjuster sleeves, 440# springs, Bilstein sport shocks, complete brake rebuild with MustangSteve brake booster and aluminum dual bowl master cylinder, new posi rear end with 3.73 gears, and more.
I have completed the restoration with new deluxe pony interior on correct colors, all TMI, new carpet, new headliner, new upholstery and seats, restored center console, new Scott Drake Convex side mirror, removed old paint and repainted doors and dashboard, new trunk mat etc. Replaced all the weatherstrips on the car, including windshield & back window. Installed new RetroSound door speakers & stereo speaker on the back with an Infinity Kappa K2 amplifier with bluetooth and hands-free calling - great sound. New Scott Drake 15x7 styled steel wheels, with Diamond Back II tyres, custom 1” whitewall (driven less than 700miles). I just replaced the radiator and installed resonators before the mufflers to keep the exhaust sound down on low rpm.
The car drives great, starts right up, motor runs strong, all electrical systems work, including new wipers, defroster both front and back and factory 8-track with am radio! I have also installed a heater control valve that is connected to the heater controls on the dashboard to prevent the cabin getting hot in the summer, and 3 point seat belts front and back. It’s comfortable and easy to drive even for everyday car. I use it often to go to work.
The black vinyl top is in excellent condition, the paint looks good from a few feet away, but is starting to show some age up close (some chips, spider cracks, etc.)
Many extras also come with the sale of the car, including custom Covercraft cover.
