For Sale: 1966 Ford Mustang in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

If you're a classic car enthusiast you know how much the pro-touring movement has enhanced muscle car ownership. By completely rethinking every aspect of performance and appearance, highly skilled builders transform Motown's biggest hits into timeless paragons that are new car comfortable, track time fast and will turn twice as many heads as anything else at the meet. That's exactly what happened with this exceptional Ford Mustang. Born from decades of vintage appeal and broad aftermarket support, this dreamy drop-top is a virtual tour de force of style and performance. Wrapping polished street rod allure around supple leather surfaces, choice Art Morrison bones and a hot Coyote mod motor, this is the kind of killer build that doesn't need a show, because it IS the show! Looking for some one-of-a-kind muscle that puts a custom twist on an old school favorite? Take a look at your next classic!

MANY HOURS AND MANY MORE DOLLARS

A six-figure, ground-up restoration that was completed by Summerville, South Carolina's CMX Customs by Vinnie, this thoroughly massaged Mustang stacks solid sheetmetal behind aggressive detailing that walks a fine line between polished street rod and classic muscle car. Instead of donning traditional, non-metallic paint, the car features rich House Of Kolor Shimrin Kandy Root Beer two-stage that's incredibly dynamic. In what appears to be a sly attempt to juice sunglass sales, that smooth, world class pigment was professionally buffed to a mirror-like shine. And it all adds up to one head-turning thoroughbred that's ready to strain necks and poised to drop jaws!

There's no question the first-generation Mustang is one of the best-looking classics of all time. And when a skilled builder adds a few custom touches, it makes the car that much better! At the front of this Ford, a hand-fabricated valance hangs an integrated splitter beneath modern headlights, billet grilles and retro, stainless-trimmed marker lamps. Opposite those lamps, a shaved hood floats a custom, Shelby-style scoop in front of capped wipers and stainless-trimmed glass. That glass, tucked snug under high quality Haartz cloth, gets reflected in polished, bullet-style mirrors that feature trick LED turn indicators. Beneath those mirrors, custom rockers trace shaved fenders, flush Kindig It door pulls and custom quarters that have been widened a total of four inches. And at the back of those quarters, another custom valance threads polished exhaust beneath a flush fuel filler, trick taillights and a discreet camera.

SHOW PONY WITH A COYOTE HEART

Hoist this coupe's custom hood and you'll find five liters of Ford Performance Coyote motor that howls to an easy 460 horsepower. At the top of that aluminum mill, an 80mm throttle body feeds a tuned composite intake. Those precision Ford components juice high-flow aluminum heads, which spin a quartet of smooth cams above lined cylinder bores. Factory coils fire hot, Ford-spec plug wires. A forged crank, sintered Boss 302 connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons provide stout 12 to 1 compression. Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing teams with both direct and port fuel injection to maximize efficiency. Speaking of breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through coated headers. There's a beefy aluminum radiator that's slid in front of big puller fan. A polished March accessory drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution photos, the fresh mill rolls in a custom Shimrin Kandy Root Beer frame that's finished with niceties like polished caps, a polished breather, polished Eddie Motorsports hood supports and custom cam covers.

UPGRADES, UPGRADES AND MORE UPGRADES

Bottom-side, predictable mini tubs integrate nicely into solid, Satin Black floors. Behind the car's smooth mill, a tough Science Friction Street Slayer clutch kicks a trusty Tremec 6-speed, which spins a quality Strange 9-inch. That drivetrain rides a precise Art Morrison chassis, which cages adjustable QA-1 coil-overs in two rounds of tubular control arms. Tight turns twirls through power rack-and-pinion steering. Beefy Baer calipers cinch 11-inch drilled and slotted rotors in front of 9-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Large-diameter exhaust hangs electronic cutouts in front of throaty Magnaflow mufflers. Ample fuel comes courtesy of a high-flow Walbro fuel pump, which drains a custom Rick's tank. And power meets the pavement through handsome Schott Venoms, which spin big 225/40ZR18 Pirelli P Zeros in front of massive 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros.

A COCOON OF CUSTOM STYLE

Swing this Ford's slicked doors and you'll find a classy custom cockpit that wraps unique show car style around a choice combination of technology and leather. Front and center, short bucket seats trace a custom, full-length console that's complete with a short shifter, pushbutton ignition and controls for Vintage Air conditioning. A custom, wood-trimmed dash hangs clean Dakota Digital VHX telemetry above crisp Pioneer touchscreen audio. A full suite of power windows backs a full array of custom side panels, which work well with slick Daytona Weave carpet that's stretched tight under piped mats and billet foot pedals. The driver carves curves through a color-keyed Billet Specialties Formula wheel, which laps a tilting Ididit column. And passengers store essentials in a custom-upholstered trunk that's finished with stylish Ringbrothers supports.

Absolutely NO expense was spared on this killer Mustang! Built to turn heads and rule the show, this Ford combines world class performance hardware with timeless street rod style to create a take-no-prisoners pro-tourer. Looking for some one-of-a-kind muscle that explores the full potential of the collector car hobby? Congratulations, you've found your next classic!
