REBUILT 289CI, A/C, FRONT DISC BRAKES, PERFECT RED/BLACK COLOR COMBO, SUPER NICE
Everyone can agree that a bright red Mustang convertible is about as good as open-air motoring gets, and this 1966 Ford Mustang convertible remains a high-quality cruiser that's instantly recognizable everywhere you go. With an enhanced 289 V8, A/C, and a power top this is the perfect fair weather friend.
When you start to look over this drop top just remember: subtle upgrades. On the whole, this looks like a sturdy American icon, but then you see all the upgrades that make it a true cut-above classic. It starts with the paint. Do you see the luster it even puts out indoors? Now just imagine what it looks like outside. The investment in a professional respray of a much deeper red and modern clearcoat means you will be distinctive even in a crowd of red Mustangs. The body is in excellent shape with gaps and alignment up to and beyond factory standards. The brightwork is good, including a custom grill that adds more chrome around the pony's "corral." The bumpers need to rival the paint for shine so they've been polished to look like mirrors. The final key to this distinctive package is the set of Ion five-spoke alloy wheels.
Beneath the pristine black power folding roof is a great looking full black vinyl interior. Just like the outside, keep you're eyes out for the subtle upgrades where serious thought and investment was put into making sure this pony car is keeping you comfortable. It starts with the excellent condition of the bucket seats, door panels, and dash. But this is not all a sea of darkness. There's plenty of bright trim, especially on the desirable center console, and the steering wheel has been upgraded so you're only going to be grabbing a smooth woodgrain style rim. 1966 is a desirable year because everyone got the upgrade to the GT's five-gauge instrument panel. Plus, you can listen to more modern music with the AM/FM/cassette stereo with a knob-style setup that doesn't look out of place in this classic. Even the original Ford air conditioner has been upgraded to R134a so you can look period-correct while staying cool with the top down.
The fender callouts on this drop top don't lie; that's a Ford's famous 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. But this one was fully rebuilt in 1995 with serious power upgrades in mind. So look beyond the shiny Shelby-style bracing bar and air cleaner, and you'll see features like a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD coil, fined valve covers, large capacity aluminum oil pan, and long-tube headers. The full package is rated a healthy 290 hp, which is more that even the famous Hi-Po 289s were producing. That makes for a much more fearsome sound out of the dual exhaust, and you better believe this extra power feels great as you get an extra rush of acceleration with the top down. But beyond just being a better performer, this Mustang never loses its easy driving attitude. This is thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and modern radial tires.
Now you realize here's the perfect open road package where the roof goes down with the touch of a button, and the V8 hustles you along better than the rest of the pony heard. This Mustang convertible is far more than just spectacular paint. This nicely invested cut-above pony is going fast, so call today!
