1966 Ford Mustang
Ask someone outside of the US what they consider the classic American muscle car and there is a good chance they are going to respond with 65 or 66 Mustang. These cars will stand the test of time and have become a huge part of American car history. They hold their value well and turn heads wherever they go. Whether you are a muscle car fan or not there is no denying that the Mustang is iconic. This 66 Coupe is a really nice classic that was just fully restored. Since completion it has literally been driven only enough to insure everything is working properly. Other than that it has been stored inside so it keeps that freshly restored appearance. It doesn't have any rust issues and the body is very straight. It is coated in a Sea Foam Green color which pairs nicely with the White vinyl top. The car has great lines with everything having a nice tight fit. The chrome bumpers and stainless trim pieces are all in good shape and all with a nice shine. A custom grill has been added which is a very nice subtle change. It brightens up the look of the front while still bearing the Mustang in coral emblem for a vintage feel. The only other custom feature is the American wheels which fit with the car perfectly and add to the muscle car feel. They are wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires that still have plenty of life left in them.
Pop the hood and you will be greeted with a 289 V8 which is what the car came with from the factory. Chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner have been added but the rest of the motor has a stock look with everything being nicely painted. The manifold, heads, block and some brackets are painted Ford Blue for that factory appearance. Backing up the motor is a C4 automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and transfers power back to the 8.8 inch Ford rear end. The car has the original drum brakes but all have been rebuilt previously and slow the car to a stop with no issues. Take a peak under the car and it is very obvious that it has been restored. The underneath has been painted to match the top and the rear end and other components painted in a nice gloss Black.

The car has the Pony interior done in White and the upholstery work is all in good shape. The dash is painted White as well but is topped with a nice Black dash pad. The original style gauges, knobs, switches, etc are all in place and the gauge pod and glovebox door have the Wood trim pieces. It also has the correct Ford AM/FM radio. An underdash AC unit is in place and it blows cold with no issues. The trunk of the car has been finished out nicely as well with Black carpeting. A custom cover was made for the spare for a nice clean look.
This is a great running car with a great look. If you want a classic Mustang then look no further. The vinyl top, pony interior and V8 motor combine for the perfect vintage Mustang.
