For Sale at Auction: 1966 Ford Mustang in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

Nicknamed "Race Red," this first-generation classic Mustang is simply stunning with its gorgeous design and color combination. It has been completely restored to show-quality standards and is loaded with upgrades throughout. As the VIN indicates, this car was built in Metuchen, NJ, as a 1966 Ford Mustang fastback with a 289ci 4V 225hp V8 engine. The vision of this build was to create the ultimate pony car with great looks, modern features and a powerful drivetrain. Finding early Mustangs built with the features of this one isn't common. The body wasn't modified to keep the original factory appearance. It was finished in Ford Race Red, which looks spectacular. This is a bright shade of red that really makes the exterior pop. The paint was recently detailed to a brilliant shine. The front and rear glass were replaced new and are crystal clear. Everything on the exterior was replaced, with the window trim, dual mirrors, front bumper, door handles, taillight bezels, gas cap and rear bumper all being new. Custom exterior touches include an open front grille, LED headlights with daytime running lights, sequential taillights and custom 347 emblems. The car sits on 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that have a gray center and polished lip. The era-correct-appearing wheels are wrapped with Sumitomo HTR tires that are 205/50/17 on the front and 235/45/17 on the rear. The red interior was completely refinished and is in beautiful condition throughout. Everything in the interior was replaced new, such as the headliner, sun visors, dash pad, dash, glove box door, steering column, door sills, door panels, door hardware, rear panels, rear seat and carpeting. Custom interior touches include Dakota Digital HDX black gauges, Classic Auto air conditioning, 3-spoke steering wheel with black wrap, Pro Car bucket seats upholstered to match the factory rear seat, center console with cup holders and storage compartment, chrome shifter and custom sound system. The trunk compartment was nicely restored with a factory-style trunk mat. The engine compartment is highly detailed, and everything was replaced new. The hood is held with Ringbrothers aluminum hood hinges; a Global West strut tower and fender braces were customized to fit and painted black. It's powered by a MJM built 347ci V8 that dyno-tested with 420hp and 432 ft/lbs of torque. The engine block was painted Ford Gray and upgraded with many high-performance parts, such as a SCAT 4340 forged crankshaft that was internally balanced, SCAT 5.4 forged connecting rods, Mahle pistons, Scorpion roller rockers, Ford Performance hydraulic roller cam, double roller timing chain, Canton oil pan, 190cc aluminum heads, Edelbrock Performer intake, Cobra valve covers, Cobra air cleaner and custom pulleys. It's equipped with a Quick Fuel Street Brawler 650 cfm carburetor, Pertronix 3 electronic ignition system, high-performance fuel pump, braided lines and Tuff Stuff alternator. The engine is cooled by a Cold Case aluminum radiator with two SPAL electric fans. The engine breathes through ceramic headers and X-pipe exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. The engine is coupled to a TREMEC 5-speed manual transmission ordered from American Powertrain. It's equipped with a RAM performance clutch and billet flywheel. The power is transferred to the rebuilt rear end with Eaton posi-traction and Motive 3.80 gears. The undercarriage is also highly detailed, and everything was replaced new. The floors were finished in the correct Red Oxide color. It's equipped with a Borgeson power steering system. The suspension system consists of Bilstein shocks at all four corners. The power braking system consists of Wilwood master cylinder and Wilwood Pro-Series 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors with red calipers. This vehicle has been recently serviced and detailed, which is all documented with an invoice that is included. From the MS CLASSIC CARS Collection.
