There are very few things that make Mustang lovers more excited
than seeing a first-gen K-code fastback. It harnessed a powerhouse
that was directly related to the HiPo 289 V8s that took home
trophies around the globe. So that's why we know you stopped to
take a look at this 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 K-code. It's a detailed
and powerful California coupe that has the right mix of
driver-ready feel and a look that impresses everywhere it
The trim tag tells us this coupe is wearing its factory-correct
Springtime Yellow. We like this color because it's distinct amongst
the red and black fastbacks, and it still knows how to show off a
sporty style by really letting that black rocker stripe pop. That's
a nice GT piece, and we bet you also noticed the fog lights in the
grille, GT badging, and dual exhaust tips mounted through the rear
valance. It's all part of the GT package, and while it takes a
buildsheet to confirm, this shows all the right signs of being a
true K-code GT. So yes, it's sporty... but it's also sophisticated.
The yellow was resprayed later in life so that it continues to have
a good gloss in the sunshine. Also, the chrome bumpers have a solid
gleam, the panels fit well, and the styled steel wheels look chic
with a nice set of white wall tires. And it's all presented with
just the right hints of age so that you have the cool look of a
power pony that gets to gallop.
The black rocker stripe is a preview of the full black interior.
While this is the correct color, you can tell there have been some
nice investments here to deliver the classic Mustang experience.
That's why you have a smooth dash, clean door panels, a taut
headliner, plush carpeting, and the desirable premium "pony"
package upholstery with running horses embossed in the seats. It's
so detail-oriented that you even have the correct fold-down rear
seat and a full courtesy light package. And this GT is a true
driver's machine. That's why there's the cool Rally-Pac tach and
clock combo just ahead of the wood-rimmed sports steering
As much as you'll love the interior and exterior, it's the rare
K-code HiPo 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood that will impress even
the most fickle Mustang enthusiast. These were built with the best
and Ford took extra time on these competition-worthy powerhouses.
The consignor states that not only is the engine the correct date,
but it also has the correct distributor and four-barrel carburetor
for a K-code Mustang. It shows signs of proper care, foregoing too
much flash and instead sticking to a nice and tidy factory
appearance. This has a nice V8 exhaust note, and the K-codes even
received an upgraded sport suspension. Plus, because this is a
special coupe, it likes to be easy to show around town. So it has
good cruising features like a three-speed automatic transmission,
power steering, and front disc brakes.
Complete with the owner's manual, collectors know a K-code Mustang
is in the one-percent rarity range of total production, and the
figure is even smaller when looking at an automatic example. So if
you like both elite and powerful classics, you know you can't let
this special pony slip away. Call today!!!
