Ford hit the ball out of the park when they built the original Mustang in ’65. They say don’t mess with success, so Ford didn’t change anything substantial for the ’66 model.
Since then, this car has had just a couple minor upgrades to the original setup, and we are pleased to offer you this great looking, great driving classic American sports car.
This car looks just perfect in black with all the beautifully restored brightwork. The body lines are crisp and clean and the gaps between the panels are pretty consistent for a classic. The neat chrome front bumper leads the way with the familiar galloping Pony in the grill just above it. There is an aesthetic scoop on that long Mustang hood and the front fenders both have the galloping Mustang emblem on them. The rockers are dressed out in polished metal and the rear fender scoops add a splash of flash too. The rear of the car has the iconic three lens brake lights, along with the Mustang gas cap. Just below the rear bumper, twin tailpipes exit out the lower valence. 15″ American Racing alloy wheels with black centers and polished accents really look good against the black paintwork on this car.
Open the door and you will find a nicely finished black interior that looks like everything has been redone within the past couple of years. The door panels have a piece of thin chrome piping along with brightwork on the armrests and door handles. Have a seat in the comfortable pleated bucket seats and wrap your hands around that three-spoke deep-dish steering wheel trimmed in wood, with the iconic Mustang emblem on the horn button. The interior feels just as good as it looks. Neatly tucked under the dash to the right are black-faced SunPro gauges for oil pressure, water temp and volts. A chrome shifter, for the C4 auto transmission, sits nicely on its stalk just begging you to put it into drive, and there is an AM/FM/CD Sony head unit for your listening pleasure. The carpet and headliner are both in excellent condition and finish off the first-class look to the interior.
Pop the hood on this car and you will find an upgraded 302ci V8, arguably one of Ford’s most popular engines. This car was originally delivered from the factory with a six-cylinder engine, so the V8 upgrade has added many horses above the original setup. It has a few upgrades both for a bit of extra power, and bit of extra style. The Edelbrock Racing air filter is finished in satin black with machined accents, which work perfectly with the style of the car. Below that is a Holley double-pumper carb and an Edelbrock performer intake. Matching Edelbrock Racing satin black valve covers look good and custom headers flow back to dual exhausts. New plugs, wires and distributor to keep things running smoothly and an electric fan keeps everything running cool. Power flows to the wheels through that C4 automatic transmission and upgraded rear diff, and the rubber meets the road through 15″ tyres front and rear, mounted on those beautiful American Racing alloy wheels. Upgraded power front disc brakes and upgraded rear disc brakes have the braking ability to reign this Pony back in if you let it run.
Why not book an appointment to view this nicely restored turn-key ’66 Mustang, with all the necessary subtle upgrades. You may decide that it is just the car you have been searching for.
