NICE UPGRADES, 289 V8, AUTO, RECENT RESTO, EXC LOOK, PAINT/INT, COBRA STYLE WHLS
This attractive 1966 Ford Mustang coupe is proof that you don't need to spend a big pile of money to get an attention-grabbing early pony car. With an upgraded look and a 289 V8 under the hood, this is a fun cruiser that should serve you well for years to come.
Red Mustangs always instantly attract an audience, and this one does it one better with vivid red that takes advantage of modern clearcoat practices to get it a luster that the factory never could. But that's not what first attracted you to this one. Nope... we know your first thoughts went to all the custom Shelby-inspired touches on this coupe. The white stripes running down the side like a Mustang GT, the full length dual top stripes (it's even on the roof!), and of course, the hood scoop. All of it makes this coupe a great tribute to 'ol Shell's barn burners, but at a fraction of the price. Even the wheels have been upgraded so it looks like Eleanor's brother.
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 luster that tells you this has had proper care. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966, which offers a sportier look and holds a complete set of gauges. There's plenty of 60s-chic brightwork around the gauges, heat/defrost switches, three-spoke steering wheel, and the T-bar automatic gearshift. Complete with a newer AM/FM/stereo, the whole package helps makes this classic cruiser comfortable enough for even the daily commute.
The engine bay is home to a thoroughly updated 289 cubic-inch V8 powerhouse. It includes upgrades such as Cobra valve covers, stabilizer bar, performance air cleaner, and Headman headers. Even when you don't get to lift the hood, everyone will know how nice this motor just is by the distinct rumble of the performance dual exhaust. But beyond the performance parts, you can just tell there has been come serious care in upgrading this Mustang. It's in the little details like the tidiness of the engine bay and its hoses, belts, and wiring. Still, it's more than just a go-fast machine. There's a smooth shifting three-speed automatic transmission and the modern grip of Kumho tires. So you know this Mustang is up for whatever trip you feel like.
This is a classic pony car that looks great and sounds mean, but it's so well sorted that you could probably drive it every day. And at this price, why wouldn't you? Call now!!
