There is no doubt the Ford Mustang started a revolution, and this
1966 coupe is a prime example why. Nearly 50 years later, this
classic is still economical, affordable, and effortlessly cool.
There are so many reasons why every kid in America wanted a first-generation Mustang, and none of them have gone away over the years. This factory-correct shade of Emberglo is a nice take on a coupe, and is unique enough to standout in a crowd. The Ford Mustang was born out of the idea that everyone should be able to have a fun car. So even while they were at an affordable price, Mustangs never held back on the style. The long hood and short deck were sportscar elements, and the scalloped sides with faux chrome air ducts felt a bit European. Of course, this was a true American that included just the right amount of chrome on the bumpers, window surrounds, and the iconic grille with a horse that runs in against the crowd. All of this brightwork is in pristine condition on this coupe, including period-correct stock hubcaps.
Just like the exterior, the color scheme inside is somewhat familiar to Mustang fans, but it is just different enough to be distinctively attractive. The interior is a two tone ivory that has complementing shades of an off-white pattern on the bucket seats, door panels, headliner, and rear bench. One component that is thankfully not white is the carpeting. The burgundy is a rich color that wears well. This means you don't have to worry about hopping into this Mustang on a whim and going for a road trip. That's a good thing because this coupe has some nice options for taking the long way home, including provisions for air conditioning/heat/defrost as well as a full gauge package (oil, battery, and water temperature) so that you always know what's going on with this beauty.
Under the hood of this pony is a correct C-code 289 cubic inch V8 motor. The two-barrel carburetor model already has plenty of power to enjoy on Saturday night cruising, but there are also catalogs filled with performance parts available for those who want to customize and upgrade to a higher horsepower four-barrel. No matter what your plans are for this coupe, the three-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission is flexible enough that you can take this car everywhere, from around town to a cruise-in, to longer trips down the highway. That's the real fun of a classic Mustang. They were built with reliable parts to drive like your everyday car, and the suspension on this one is comfortable enough for the morning commute. So now you can drive an extremely sharp vintage coupe for a reasonable price.
Every first-generation Mustang is bound to turn heads, but when you want to stick out from the crowd with such a great paint scheme, at value price, this one has the subtle extra touches to grab real attention! Call today!!
