A-CODE 289 V8, REAL MUSTANG GT, GREAT COLORS, RUNS EXCELLENT, GREAT INVESTMENT!
This 1966 Ford Mustang is proof that you don't need to spend a big pile of money to get a great looking and driving early pony car. With a four-barrel 289 and the perfect shade of red, this is a fun cruiser that will serve you well for years to come. This car is also believed to be a true GT car, not a clone or tribute, so the long-term value retention is definitely there on this one!
Red Mustangs always instantly attract an audience, and this one does it one better with a hint of sinister sports car attitude courtesy of the GT package elements. After all, the black triple stripe on the rocker panels that sit between the 14-inch Mag 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 some GT-specific elements you need to get right, and this one has the cleaner front end, fog lights in the grille, and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. Overall fit and finish is very good, making it the kind of car you want to drive around and show off. 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.
A pristine black interior is always the perfect complement to a bright red exterior. Everything from the bucket seats, to the door panels, to the carpeting carries the kind of quality that tells you this has always been under good care. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966, and it offers a sportier appearance while holding a complete set of gauges. The knob-style AM/FM/cassette stereo fits nicely into the original radio's placement, and it provides a nice complement to the chrome trim around the gauges, heat/defrost switches, and the three-spoke steering wheel. Of course the piece of brightwork you'll really enjoy is resting your hand on the manual gearshift. This is a total package that is has a great vintage look and feel, but it's also comfortable enough for the daily commute.
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, this 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 newer dual exhaust with performance H-pipe construction. The three-speed manual transmission gives this classic coupe better versatility on the road to choose between comfortable cruising and performance driving. Plus, the Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires and front disc brakes give you the kind of grip that's welcome in all situations.
This is a first generation Pony car with serious upgrades offered for thousands less than you could buy a new one. This is one of the easiest choices you'll ever make about taking home an icon. Call today!!!
