1966 Ford Mustang Fastback - Red over Black - 289 V8 - C4 Automatic Transmission - Stunning Example (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations.

If one car embodies 1960s Americana, it's the 1965�€"66 Mustang. Hagerty, January 2021 Hagerty summarized the changes incorporated in the 1966 Mustang: Changes in the second year of production were limited, rightly so as the Mustang passed the one-million-unit production mark this year. You can spot a 1966 Mustang from its less cluttered grill texture, chrome hood moulding, redesigned gas cap, new wheel covers, an upgrade from 13�€� to 14�€� wheels (six-cylinder models only), standard 5-pod gauge cluster, redesigned side scoop brightwork and chrome panels over the rocker panels (deleted on GT). Federal mandates meant that the once optional reverse lamps are now standard. (The prior) year's extensive list of optional equipment was also present in 1966, with the addition of an optional 8-track cassette tape player. Offered here is a restored and beautifully upgraded 1966 Mustang Fastback in black over red. This is a respray from the original Antique Bronze and a full replacement of the interior. All other data on the car's riveted-in-place data tag and VIN indicate authenticity on all these fronts: year-of-manufacture, body style, standard interior trim, 2.80 axle, and C4 automatic transmission. The Mustang's full decoding is shown below: VIN decode: 6- Model Year 1966 F- Dearborn Assembly Plant 09- Hardtop Coupe C- 289 2V 259001 �€" Serial Number (159,000th 1966 Mustang built) Trim decode: Body Code: 63A (Fastback with standard interior) Exterior Paint: P (Antique Bronze Paint) Interior Trim: 26 (Black Interior) Build Date: 16B (16 February 1966) District Sales Office: 53 (St. Louis) Axle: 6 (2.80 Locking differential) Transmission: 6 (C4 Automatic) The car's black exterior paint shows very well across all body panels. The paint finish is evenly glossy, and the trunk interior, door jambs, and underside of the hood have all been properly sprayed. Panel fit is generally within period-manufacturing specifications. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome work-including the bumpers, mirrors, door handles, window trim, and taillight trim-is in very-good-to-excellent condition. The front grille is an undamaged replacement from a '65 Mustang. All badging-the F-O-R-D letters on the hood, the center-grille running-pony emblem, Mustang 2+2 lower-fender emblems, 298 engine badge, and Mustang-logo gas-cap-is properly located and in overall excellent condition. Through-the-rear-panel Mustang GT dual-exhaust exits are installed. Cabin glass and lighting lenses (including on the new-for-1966 backup lights) are clear and uncracked. Chrome-trimmed styled-steel 13-inch wheels (with Mustang logo center caps) are mounted with fresh General® Altimax RT 215/60 radial tires. The car's red interior is a full replacement in perfect condition, and it offers excellent contrast to the black exterior.

Red door-trim panels with chrome accents are as-new; lower door-sill chrome trim pieces with Ford-script logos are in pristine condition. Fresh black carpets with embroidered-Mustang-logo protective mats cover the cabin floors. The Ford-Mustang-logo steering wheel in red (with chrome trim) frames the 5-opening gauge cluster (updated from the '65 model). A SunPro® tachometer has been added to the s
