This 1966 Mustang coupe is hard not to fall in love with. Wonderful colors, a snarky 289 under the hood, and great-looking Magnums for a sporty look all make it a great example of America's favorite pony car. You'll also discover that it drives even better than it looks, making for a hobby car that will be hard to resist whenever the sun is shining.
The color isn't quite Vintage Burgundy, it's something altogether more appealing. No gaudy stripes, no fake GT badges, just lots of care in the build that couldn't possibly be duplicated for the asking price. Brightwork like the chrome bumpers and shiny rocker moldings gives it some contrast and those '289' badges on the front fenders are an important part of the equation. This is a car that'll never go out of style and every time you stop for gas you'll have people complementing you on the color and asking questions about it – such is the magic of the Mustang.
The black interior has been restored to mostly stock specs with low-back buckets seats, fresh black carpets, and original-style door panels. It's hard to go wrong with the factory gear, but a tasteful aftermarket center console is a nice addition and seems right in line with the car's character. The stock steering wheel with three spokes looks sporty and frames the 5-gauge instrument panel that was formerly only on the GT but became standard across the board in '66. Under-dash A/C is more effective than the original setup and more effectively hidden, too, looking far more integrated into the design. An AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash powers speakers in custom kick panel housings for a very clean installation. The trunk features a correct plaid mat and a custom-fitted car cover is included.
For your vintage Mustang, the powerplant you want pulling you around is Ford's rev-happy 289 cubic inch V8. It looks fairly correct with Ford Blue paint and a chrome air cleaner with reproduction decals on its face, and the chrome valve covers add some under-hood sparkle. With a 4-barrel carb, it makes 225 strong-running horses and pulls the lightweight coupe around with authority. Linked to a C4 3-speed automatic transmission, it drives around town with ease and thanks to front disc brakes it feels sure-footed in traffic. A dual exhaust system has a great burble without being obnoxious on the highway and while the chassis isn't detailed for show it's in good shape with a light dusting of undercoating for protection. Magnum 500 wheels aren't 100% correct for 1966, but they're a traditional Mustang look that are possibly the best-looking wheels of the era, and they're wrapped in 205/60/15 performance radials.
You don't need to spend a lot of money to get an exceptional Mustang, and even those without expensive pedigrees can be first-class rides as this beautiful little coupe proves. Call today!
