This 1966 Ford Mustang is the classic pony car with plenty of extra
gallop. The V8 has all the best upgrades so that you can enjoy an
iconic vintage car that's both affordable and a bit unassuming.
This one has the inconspicuous look of a respected classic that
also has been driven regularly. Its trim is complete and bright;
the body is quite clean; and it has the ideal coupe profile. So
while you could upgrade the paint or do some other restoration
work, we like what this one already represents. It's the kind of
car that gives the impression of the person you wish you were:
someone who drives a Mustang daily. It has just a hint of added
sporty style with the later Mag 500 wheels and wide raised white
Inside is more of that well-respected classic appearance. Taut
black vinyl seats, newer carpeting, a smooth dash pad, and a newer
headliner all have the correct look. Heck, even the AM radio is
still there for a display. You get the driver-oriented feeling of
bucket seats, floor shifter, and the classically thin/grippy
steering wheel. The 1966 upgraded round gauge panel, and you also
now have a large water temp gauge mounted below it (an essential
piece for a good driver.) And all of this feels quite stock...until
you turn the key.
The Ford Racing valve covers take center stage in the dark engine
bay to really announce this upgraded V8. Ford's mighty 289 motor
has been given extra go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel
carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that feed a
rumbling dual exhaust. And because you want this enhanced package
to run cool they also upgraded to a BeCool aluminum radiator with
electric fan. This one fires up nicely as a well-respected machine
should, and you can even recognize investments in pieces like the
aluminum water pump, aluminum pulleys, newer leaf springs, and
newer gas tank. And because it's fun to drive an enhanced V8 pony
everywhere, they make it easy with a three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and a wide BF Goodrich T/As.
The first-generation Ford Mustang is a true classic car icon, and
this one has been upgraded for fun. So don't miss this deal, call
