TRUE A-CODE CONVERTIBLE, CANDYAPPLE RED , 289 CI, 4-SPEED, R134 A/C, PONY INT!
Early Mustangs like this 1966 A-code convertible are rock-solid places to park some money. Their values have been stable for years and while that's going on, you have one of the most beloved cars of all time in your garage. This convertible features all the important stuff, ranging from an A-code 289, manual transmission, and A/C, making it a terrific summer cruiser that will make you smile every time you drive it.
If you're going to have a Mustang convertible, it may as well be a red one, right? Repainted a few years ago, the Candyapple Red finish is holding up superbly. Sure, it shows a few signs of use because nobody can resist the siren song of a V8 pony car in the garage, but this is the kind of car that makes men and women, young and old look appreciatively as it drives by. You'll park it in parking lots and walk away backwards to admire it as you go. Fit and finish are good with doors that don't sag and decent gaps all around that closely approximate how the factory did it. It shines up nicely so you'll enjoy waxing it almost as much as driving it, and with white GT stripes running along the rockers, everyone will know this isn't a garden-variety pony. Other GT features include the twin fog lamps in the grille area, shiny chrome exhaust trumpets poking through the rear valence, and, of course, the GT gas cap, all of which give it a slightly more aggressive look than your standard Mustang.
The red Pony interior was obviously restored not too long ago and you'll find it's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, like seeing an old friend. A reproduction Vintage Air A/C system has been installed under the dash and uses R134a refrigerant for efficiency and low-cost maintenance. A Rally-Pac that includes tachometer and clock is fitted to the steering column, which wasn't standard with the GT but remains a desirable option. An AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash expands your entertainment options beyond the original AM setup and the gauges show very good faces and clear lenses. If you look closely, you'll note that the shifter now shows 5 gears instead of four, thanks to a seamless T5 5-speed upgrade which adds an overdrive gear for effortless highway cruising. There's a recent tan power convertible top and the trunk wears new plaid mats and a full-sized spare with cover.
This is a real A-code car and carries what we believe is the original 289 cubic inch V8. It's very nicely detailed with Ford Blue paint, chrome air cleaner with decal, and a set of aluminum Cobra valve covers, all of which are period upgrades that still look great. Holley supplied the carburetor and MSD handles the spark, making this a sweet-running pony that can still slice through traffic with the best of them. It was originally an automatic car, but the T5 swap is a smart one, improving both efficiency and performance, not to mention fun. Underneath, there's lot of new suspension hardware, including sway bars, as well as a fresh dual exhaust system that sounds great. Classic styled steel wheels with 215/70/14 BFGoodrich radials complete the classic Mustang look.
A wonderful vintage ragtop that is still as in-demand today as it was 50 years ago. Smart upgrades also make this a car you can drive every day. Call now!
