Here's an icon for those who love the details and love watching others appreciate them, too. This 1966 Ford Mustang convertible has been given all the right details to become a GT in a full, and extremely high quality restoration to make it look factory fresh, and the impressive pony at the car show.
Red Mustang convertibles instantly attract an audience. But while most do it with a sunny disposition, this 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 stylized steel wheels give have a profile that's more aggressive than most of the other '66s you'll come across. The black vinyl roof is a great coordinating piece to this car's aggressive dark side, and you can even still showcase this with the top down, thanks to the black convertible boot. We all know there are plenty of GT-specific elements you need to get it looking right. This one has the fog lights in the grille, GT emblems on the fenders, and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. But the real investment comes from the fit and finish. The code-T Candyapple has the kind of modern clearcoat that will make you swear mirrors are red. On a car with this kind of luster, only the best chrome and stainless will do. But more than just shining, all the little trim pieces are in place, right down to the proper GT badge on the gas cap.
Inside are more benefits of a top quality restoration. The bright red interior offers the perfect coordinating appearance with the exterior. It gives this convertible a true uniform presentation, and let's face it, with the convenience of the power folding roof, you'll be showing off the interior all the time. The restored bucket seats look factory fresh, and their chrome trim looks fantastic paired with the center console in the middle. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966, which offers a sportier look and holds a complete set of exceptionally clear gauges. A newer AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit fits neatly in the original radio's location and it provides a nice complement to the chrome trim around the gauges and the three-spoke steering wheel.
Under the hood is Ford's legendary 289 cubic-inch motor. This has one of the best presentations we've ever seen on a Mustang. Period. It looks factory fresh and factory correct right down to the sticker on the oil fill cap and the stamping on the big blue engine block. Ok, the Cobra valve covers are an addition, but you can't fault a convertible this cool for having some nice flair. More than just an amazing engine bay, be sure to check out all the undercarriage photos. You'll see exceptionally fresh components and a tribute to Ford's factory red oxide spray. The condition and cleanliness tells you the previous owner preferred trailering the droptop to far away car shows rather than drive it. With this level of detail in the restoration and exceptional care ever since, it should be no surprise this Mustang fires up like new. And the rhythmic rumble of the dual exhaust is an intoxicating sound. In fact, we bet the next caretaker won't be able to help but enjoy this drop top on the open road. And with great driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, what's stopping you?
This is the fully-sorted Mustang convertible you've been waiting for. The level of investment here means it's turnkey quality ready to win awards this weekend. So do you want own the showstopper or compete against it? Call now!!
