REAL T5, EXTREMELY RARE EURO MODEL, 289 V8, PWR DISCS, GREAT STANCE, SILVER BLUE
This is the clean pony car with an extra story to tell, and people love to check out this 1966 Ford Mustang T5. After all, this is an iconic classic American that was original sold in Europe and was never officially a Mustang at all.
This is one of the Mustangs that was originally exported to Germany, but a copyright issue meant that it could not carry the "Mustang" name. That created an interesting subcategory of this classic called "T5". There's an online T5 directory that will tell you the whole story, and it's also where you can see this car listed. It's one of only about a hundred cars known from 1966. So that's what makes this car interesting... what makes it beautiful is the presentation. This classic wears its factory-correct shade of Silver Blue. It seems like the right sophisticated color for this European export car, especially in the way it looks against the bright chrome bumpers. And more than pretty, this one has great pony car aggressive touches, too. The grille reminds us of the Shelby cars; the triple rocker stripe is a nice GT touch; and the 17-inch Ridler alloys look inspired by the later Bullitt Mustangs.
Just like the exterior, the interior keeps everything correct and adds a few thoughtful upgrades. The black bucket seats coordinate the carpeting, door panels, dash, and headliner. Plus, the trim gives it a bright touch without losing the sports car feeling. This is a classic you're going to be sharing with family and friends, and so the AM/FM/cassette stereo helps to keep them entertained. But the auxiliary gauge trio and column-mounted SunPro tach are there because this is a true classic driver. You're going to love gripping the classic three-spoke sports steering wheel and rowing through the gears every moment that you get.
This is an engine bay done right. You're going to want to talk about the history of this coupe, and so when you lift the hood, you want a nice presentation without being too showy. The bold blue block, matching intake, and bright air topper with 289 decals makes for the right eye-catching package. This C-code car even still correctly carries a dual-barrel carburetor and correct coolant overflow bag. Best of all, you have a clear view of the trim tag that proves this is truly a T5 built for export. But a car like this was also meant for driving. That's why the 289 cubic-inch V8 has been well maintained. And when you fire it one up, the addition of a header package adds more power and a deeper tone to the dual exhaust. Out on the road, the three-speed manual transmission gives you added control and freedom. Plus, the front disc brakes and grip of modern performance tires gives you extra control over this classic coupe.
This is a pony car that sticks out in the already desirable Mustang herd. It's a cool coupe to drive, but you'll first have to fight off the crowds who want to know this T5's story. Call today!!!
