Vehicle Description

This 1966 Ford Mustang has rare features, low ownership, and low miles. It makes for a gem of a find, and so it's great to see it so well-respected. So as you take a closer look, you're going to see key investments in keeping this looking great, and they also left plenty original because this one is a true representative of a bygone era.

When the first owner was also a long-term owner, then you know the car was treated special from day one. That's why this one has barely averaged over 1k miles annually. So that already makes this coupe stand out. Plus, the factory-correct Tahoe Turquoise was given a more recent respray to make sure it has a terrific shine. This car was likely cherished for the same reason why you want it right now: it's an American icon. It has the long hood and short deck look that's timeless. And this one really has an added sophistication that comes from exceptionally bright chrome bumpers, excellent body panels, and nice details like the wire wheel covers.

The parchment interior looks great against the exterior. Almost like the paint is the ocean wave and the interior is the crest. This is the full factory-correct color combo, and the presentation is highly original. It's not perfect like a restored car, but instead, you and other enthusiasts will be absolutely impressed at how well the fundamentals have been preserved. It's quite complete, right down to the floor shifter for the three-speed automatic transmission. Those who know these cars have already spotted some terrific features. The Rally Pac tach and clock combo is believed to be original to the car, and they are both working correctly. Also, the trim tag tells us this was born a code-65C bench seat coupe, which makes it rarer than even some versions of the fastback or convertible. They have also given this the right subtle upgrades. It includes a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel for better grip; lightly tinted windows to keep the interior cooler; and an AM/FM stereo w/cassette that fits in the original knob-style housing to give you better driving music.

The highly stock look continues under the hood. This was born a C-code car, and so you get a 289 cubic-inch V8 dressed in quite a bold blue on the block, air topper, and valve covers. Not only does it look like there was a solid investment in the paint, but also the details, too, like all the correct decals. The motor fires up readily. It now inhales deeper with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a subtly sweet tune from the dual exhaust. Plus, there's a list of new components that makes this a fine all-around cruiser, including a fresh front suspension with power steering, a new power brake booster, a front disc brakes upgrade, new U-joints, new rear leaf spring, new shocks, and newer tires (including the full-size spare). So with this solid feeling this one has, you won't be able to resist adding to the low odometer.

This is a great history, significant features, and big investments all rolled into one irresistible package. If you were looking for the first-gen pony car that stick out from the herd, call today!!!
