AWESOME LOOK, 17-INCH ELEANOR WHEELS, SHELBY APPEARANCE, 289 V8, PS, DISC BRAKES
Here's a cool 1966 Ford Mustang coupe with expensive Shelby and Eleanor upgrades, plus plenty of custom touches to add in the mix. With all these distinctive features, the price seems surprisingly/temptingly low.
The customization of this Mustang is apparent from every angle. It starts up front with the dual billet grilles that that make way for a new front bumper and racing lights. The hood pins look like they were necessary to tame this beastly bulging hood (and we'll tell you exactly why they're needed a little later.) The rear has a custom spoiler and the Shelby-style taillamps. If the iconic knock-off 17-inch wheels didn't already scream "Hey Eleanor!" then the superb signature Pepper Gray paint certainly will. But there's a bit more to this coupe in both its substance and style. This sports car has shed some extra weight thanks to the custom hood, trunk, and front bumper utilizing lightweight fiberglass. And while Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) featured a monochrome car, this Eleanor has a black and red side stripe package in a cool shape mirroring the style of the Mustang's famous scalloped doors.
Inside is everything you like about the original pony car. There's pristine bucket seats up front, big speedometer in the middle of a full set of gauges, and a three-spoke sports steering wheel with the Mustang emblem in the middle. Plus, this Mustang has been upgraded to be a better cruiser with convenient features such as an AM/FM/CD stereo system and a new center console. Those of us who drive classic cars wish we had cup holders, but if you don't like this upgrade, it removes fairly easy with little impact on the seats or carpet. Best of all, everything is set in the same black and gray to match the exterior. So when someone gets a closer look at the car show, the interior is dressed to impress, too.
The engine bay is home to a thoroughly updated 289 cubic-inch powerhouse. It includes upgrades such as a performance air cleaner, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, stabilizer bar, and aluminum radiator. Even when you don't get to lift the hood, everyone will know how nice this motor just is by the distinct rumble of the dual exhaust. But beyond the performance parts, you can just tell there has been come serious care in upgrading this Mustang. It's in the little details like the tidiness of the engine bay or the new hoses, belts, and wiring. Still, this classic custom Mustang is more than just a go-fast machine. It has a smooth shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes – all of which means you can cruise all weekend with ease.
This is a classic pony car that looks great and sounds mean, but it's so well sorted that you can drive it every day. And at this price, why wouldn't you?
