This 1966 Ford Mustang has a red-hot look and a hotter V8 under the
hood. It's even an extra fun driver with a four-speed and upgraded
front disc brakes. So if you're looking for a well-priced classic
that's ready to hit the road, you know this is the one.
The red paint is an upgrade later in life, and so it gives the
right kind of gloss and shine you want on a classic Mustang like
this. The panels line up nicely, the glass is good, and the chrome
bumpers are complete and bright. It makes for an overall attractive
package that also doesn't stray from a driver-ready total

That's why there are upgrades like GT-style dual exhaust coming
through the valance and 15-inch American Racing alloys that allow
you to fit meaty tires.

the courtesy lights are working. The classic three-spoke steering
wheel feels grippy in your left hand, and your right one may never
want to leave the Hurst shifter. And while the dual exhaust has a
terrific tune, the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette is there for
choosing your favorite driving music.
Under the hood is Ford's mighty 289 cubic-inch V8. These love
upgrades, and so there has been an investment in an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and a performance cam.
It exhales with added power and authority as long tube headers feed
the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. This has the right
supporting components, too, like an MSD ignition and an Aluminum
radiator. So it's a strong running and powerful package. You have
complete control over the power and soundtrack thanks to the
four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the power brakes with
upgraded Wilwood front discs makes for added confidence out on the
