Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Dallas is proud to offer a high optioned, very original style 1966 Ford Mustang, while most have been hot-rodded, this one stands as an original. The first-generation Ford Mustangs have held onto their popularity even better than even Betty White. People were attracted to them for their style, size, performance, and price, and those same qualities still attract car enthusiasts today. It is quickly apparent that this 1966 Mustang coupe has remained on the A-list for decades with no signs of slowing down. The Code K Nightmist Blue exterior finish provides a deep shine and gives our Ford an elegant, timeless look that will always be in demand. It can be difficult to maintain a dark color for sure but when it is applied professionally and maintained properly, what you see here is the reward. The Ford's sheet metal lines up correctly and there are no indicators of past issues, and with the work being finished within the last few years, everything still looks crisp and fresh. We always like to see Mustangs in their natural state, so the lack of stripes, scoops, spoilers, or other add-ons is a relief, but when the original design is this good, why would you want to mess with it? And while we love the Nightmist Blue paint, the white vinyl top adds an awesome bit of contrast that makes this pony stand out in a crowd. Open the driver's door and you're greeted with a new two-tone Pony Interior. The carpeting, headliner, seating, and door panels are all there with a light blue and white combination. This Mustang is nicely outfitted with a center console, and a working AM/8-track radio, suggesting it wasn't purchased for performance reasons alone. A wood-rimmed steering wheel works well with the matching dash appliques and center console, adding a sporty look that's perfect for the Mustang's personality. The five-hole gauge panel was standard equipment in 1966 and we're guessing that the gauges inside are original. The strong-running recently rebuilt 289 cubic inch V8 is a C-code 2-barrel unit that's smooth and torquey, the ideal partner for the automatic transmission. There is no such thing as matching numbers in 1966 Mustangs, but it is correct right down to the air cleaner and valve covers. The Ford Blue engine enamel is the right color and there are no obvious signs of trauma in this car's past. A C4 three-speed automatic transmission shifts without complaint and is backed by an 8-inch full of highway-friendly 2.80 gears. The undercarriage is finished as original, and the dual exhaust system gives it a nice V8 sound that never gets annoying. Wearing BFG radials were installed on a set of pretty styled steel wheels and are a good match that gives this pony a crisp look with an OEM vibe. As the supply of clean, well-finished Mustangs shrinks, cars like this will become ideal places to park some money for a few years, and there's simply nothing more fun than a vintage pony with a few tricks up its sleeve.
