For Sale: 1966 Ford Mustang in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback - True GT - California Car - Emberglo Paint - A Code 289/225HP 4bbl V8 - 4 Speed Manual with Hurst Shifter - American Racing Performance Wheels In 1966, Ford produced several special edition Mustangs to further promote their pony car. One of the most popular of these packages produced was the Grand Touring package, or GT. The GT package gave the Mustang owner a better-handling, better-performing car all in one neat package. The 1966 Mustang GTs were very different from the base model cars and they had many factory modifications that are hard to duplicate after production. All GT Mustangs were either a K code car or an A code car, and this Mustang being a true GT car comes with the correct A-code 289cid 224hp 4bbl V8. The engine compartment has been detailed and presents well with aluminum finned Ford valve covers and chrome air cleaner. A Holley carburetor with electric choke sits atop an aluminum performance intake and the ignition has been upgraded to an electronic ignition with 8mm spark plug wires. The engine is well maintained with new fan belts and cooling hoses as well as a new aluminum radiator to help keep this hot set up running cool. Power is transferred to the rear differential through a 4-speed manual transmission and gears are selected with a Hurst shifter. The under body of this car has not been restored although the floorboards have been replaced and sub- frame connectors to lessen body flex have been installed and the repair work is well executed. The suspension has been well maintained with new lower control arms, tie rods, idler arm and sway bar links and HD gas shocks on all four corners. As a true GT this car features a 16:1 quick ratio steering box and a stiffer suspension and thicker front sway bar. Equipped with front disc brakes and a larger single master cylinder, and the brake system has been refurbished with fresh brake lines. The performance exhaust features long tube headers that flow into a 2.5 X-pipe dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers that exit through a special rear valance openings into chrome trumpeter tips. The Emberglo paint is well applied over professionally finished body work. The finish has been carefully polished and shines with a deep luster. Body fit is well aligned, and the panel gaps are even and consistent. The correct GT badges are on each front fender with white GT stripes running along the rocker panel, GT gas cap and up front is the correct fog lights. The 15 American Racing Shelby inspired aluminum wheels nicely accent the GT option. The black interior has been restored with new seat upholstery, headliner, dash pad and carpet. The dash has the standard 5 dial analog instrument cluster, and the brake pedal is appropriately labeled Disc Brake. The interior features simulated wood trim on the dash and center console and a billet steering wheel with walnut rim. The AM radio appears stock but has been upgraded internally to play AM/FM stereo and features AUX input so you can play music through your phone. The music plays through speakers mounted in the kick panels up front and rear mounted speakers. Mustang logo floor mats nicely accent this clean interior. This car is a real looker that will draw thumbs up as you cruise the strip and will draw lots of attention at the local cruise ins and car shows. But this GT optioned Mustang is more than a show piece, these cars are fun to drive, and this car is ready to take you for spirited drives on two lane country roads. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
