VERY NICE, 289 A CODE V8, 4 SPD, REV WHEELS, GOOD PAINT, NICE INTERIOR, GR8 PONY
The first-generation fastback Mustang is the rarest and most desirable version out there, and this 1966 example comes with the best attention-grabbing touches. Cool blue paint, V8 power, four-speed standard transmission, and the right upgrades during restoration all make this 1966 Ford Mustang irresistible.
Caspian Blue is an attractive way standout against the more common red or black 2+2 Mustangs. This shade borrowed from the '65 palette looks especially nice because there's been an investment in a professional application that gives this one an added depth when the sunlight hits the modern clearcoat. Bodywork is excellent with straight panels and good alignment throughout, which means you can shut the doors with confidence every time. It's also nicely detailed, just as it would have been in 1966, with bright chrome bumpers and those iconic 289 badges on the front fenders. But there's also something more. We bet you've noticed the cool hood scoop. It gives this racy fastback a cool connection to the GT350 and helps establish a personality all its own. The same goes for the bright 15-inch REV wheels.
This special feeling continues inside. A pristine black interior is always desirable in a classic, and this one really goes the extra mile. It's been treated to new components, so the seats look crisp; the door panels feel confident as you pull them closed; and the carpet feels factory-fresh. You sit behind the wood and chrome three-spoke steering wheel, rest you hand on the Hurst shifter, and look out at the full round gauge panel - this is true classic motoring. And because everyone will want to go for a ride in your vintage fastback, you can keep them entertained with an AM/FM stereo that looks period-correct with its bright knob appearance, but it has an aux input for the latest music players.
Ford's reliable and perky 289 cubic-inch V8 moves the lightweight Mustang enthusiastically through any traffic. The engine bay is tidy and presents well with a bright air cleaner and gold valve coves. The tidy wire, hoses, and belts tell you this has been well maintained, and so you can be ready to hit the road at a moment's notice. This is an A-code car, so you get a Holley four-barrel carburetor to let the V8 inhale deeply, and the Flowmaster dual exhaust with GT-style trumpets allows it to exhale with authority. This was restored to be a true driver's car, so you get great control of the motor and its soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. And the wide BF Goodrich T/A radials are there to make sure you stay planted as you feel every inch of your favorite road.
Fastbacks are always in demand, and this one has all the right features to be more aggressive without losing that original pony car spirit. It's the perfect vintage standout. Call today!!
