NICE RESTO, 289CI, 4 SPEED MAN, AWESOME GREEN ON BLACK, GREAT LOOK, MUST SEE!
They say "Don't mess with success." Ford didn't. They hit the ball out of the park with the introduction of the Mustang in '65, and they didn't change anything substantial for '66. Since then, this car has had just a couple minor upgrades to the original setup, and we now offer you this great looking, great driving, American sports car.
Looking good in Emerald Green, this car has been garage kept since it was gone through and repainted about 7 years ago. It was a quality respray when it was done, and still looks fresh, with a great shine and no noticeable flaws. The front of the car leads the way with a clean, understated look, because the honeycomb grill has no badging or other chrome on it, and there is no "Ford" script on the hood, (you know who makes this car, right?). There is a thin chrome bumper, and a hood scoop with double openings that looks oh so right sitting toward the front of that long hood. 289 badges, as well as red, white, and blue Mustangs grace the front fenders. The rockers have finned trim running between the fenders, and the back of the car has the iconic three lens brake lights, along with a Mustang gas cap. The bumper is bright and sharp looking, and chrome tailpipes exit the valence below it. American Torq Thrust wheels look great with the green, and complete the look of the car perfectly.
Open the door and you will find more of the understated look with the black interior. The door panel surrounded by body color has just the right amount of contrast to it. A bit of brightwork shines nicely in the door sill trim and the seat back framing. Have a seat in the comfortable pleated bucket, and wrap your hands around that deep-dish steering wheel trimmed in wood with the Mustang horn button. It looks good and feels good. Through that wheel you will see one of the upgrades this car received. Tucked under that deep dash cowl, are sweet looking, white-faced gauges. Another upgrade is the Kenwood head unit that is iPod compatible with speakers pumping out the sound in the back shelf. A white, Hurst shifter sits nicely on its chrome stalk just begging you to stir it around. The carpet and headliner are both in excellent condition, and finish out the first class look of the interior nicely.
Pop the hood on this car and you are greeted by a 289 V8 that is arguably the most desirable engine to have in an early 'Stang. It has a few upgrades both for a bit of extra power, and bit of extra style. The air filter has a chrome top with a "289 cubic inch, High Performance" sticker with dual racing flags. That sits on top of the Holley 670 CFM carb, and an aluminum intake. Edelbrock aluminum heads take over from there to get the fuel mixture in and out, with spark handled by a Unilite distributor. Headers followed by a true dual exhaust system make sure the engine exhales efficiently, and that it sounds good while doing it. Finned Edelbrock valve covers help a bit with oil cooling, and look great too in the black paint and polished metal look. The power this engine makes runs back through a 4-speed manual transmission, and 215/60R15 tires mounted on those Torq Thrust wheels get the power on the ground.
Come on down and check out this nicely restored '66 with its first-class paint job, and a couple subtle upgrades. You may decide that it is just the car you have been looking for.
