Distinct, beautiful, and quite quick – we know why you stopped to look at this 1966 Ford Mustang GT. And the only way this true A-code pony car is going to disappoint you is if you're not quick enough to snap it up.
This deep dark hue that's grabbing all your attention is a factory shade known as Nightmist Blue. If you think it looks quite modern, that's because someone invested in a professional respray recently. So you get the distinction of a genuine '66 color and the terrific shine of a modern clearcoat. That's already an alluring coupe before you add all the GT package elements. After all, the white triple stripe on the rocker panels that sit between the 14-inch factory styled steel wheels give this one a profile that's more aggressive than most of the other '66s you'll come across. But we all know there's more GT-specific elements you need to get right, and this one has the fog lights in the grille and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. Chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, and all the little trim pieces are in place, right down to the proper GT badges on the fenders and gas cap.
Inside is another very distinct, but factory-style upgrade with the blue and white luxury interior that includes the premium "pony" package on the seatbacks. Everything looks great in complementing dual colors on the seats, door panels, and dash. We also bet you just love the way the wood paneling on the center console matches the steering wheel, glove box, and gauge panel. And speaking of the gauges, you get the five-round readout cluster with large speedometer that makes the 1966 cars so desirable. It's an overall stellar appearance that you're going to love keeping the windows down everywhere you go just so people can get a better view at this interior package.
Under the hood are more signs of great care. This 289 cubic-inch V8 looks great with the shiny elements like the air cleaner and valve covers. But beyond just the attention-grabbing components that impress at car shows, the motor has real performance substance. This is originally an A-code car, and so it should be no surprise that there is a four-barrel carburetor on this V8. It exhales with a commanding presence through a dual exhaust with performance H-pipe construction. The three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that keeps everything comfortable. Add in front disc brakes and the grip of BF Goodrich T/As, and you have a great looking coupe that also handles quite nicely.
We all love red Mustangs, but this blue coupe offers true distinction without straying from Ford's original parameters. In other words: it's a cool standout classic. Don't miss your opportunity at this one. Call today!!!
