Description for Ford Mustang 1966

A little bit of road race, a little bit of luxury, and a touch of Shelby make this 1966 Ford Mustang coupe stand out in a big way. There are some substantial upgrades under the skin to make it ride and drive like a more modern car and there's no denying the sinister look that transforms the friendly Mustang into a hardcore piece of iron. We know Shelby didn't build coupes for public consumption, but the ones they took to the track might have looked a bit like this slick little coupe. Of course, Shelby was about speed, so nothing they were building looked this pretty, with miles-deep midnight blue paint and contrasting white rocker stripes to really make it pop. There's a Shelby-style grille up front and the cowl induction hood makes the simple Mustang look aggressive without being over-done. Finish quality is quite good for a car with this much performance, showing that not only was the focus on going fast but also looking good and when you show up in this pony, people are definitely going to notice. The chrome bumpers look almost new and they added a GT rear valence with the exhaust poking through, which is always a welcome upgrade on an early Mustang. This car has a great look! The gorgeous tan interior isn't like any early Mustang you've driven. Fresh ProCar Elite buckets are infinitely more comfortable than the original stools and with a tunnel-hugging center console, it feels more like 2005 than 1965 inside. A wood-rimmed steering wheel and stock-style door panels are a link to the past, but the instrument panel full of trick Auto Meter instruments gives the dash a whole new look. A 4-point hoop behind the seats offers structural strength as well as a place to mount the 4-point harnesses that add welcome safety (critical in a car that generates speed like this one does). The work is recent so everything is in excellent condition, including the back seat that wears fresh Pony seat covers to match the front buckets and the trunk is finished with a correct plaid mat as well as an aluminum battery box that helps with weight distribution. Like all great early Mustangs, this one packs a snarling 302 cubic inch crate motor that definitely wants to run. It was built by Blue Print and features the usual upgrades like an aluminum intake manifold, Holley double pumper, and an HEI distributor to light it up. It's dressed to impress with chrome valve covers and a detailed look that's mostly traditional V8 performance. A big aluminum radiator has a giant electric fan and a set of long-tube headers feeding a Flowmaster exhaust system so it sounds like Lemans all over again. The original 3-speed manual transmission is gone, replaced by a slick-shifting 5-speed with overdrive, so it's a great highway cruiser. The front suspension has a fat sway bar and disc brakes, so it handles beautifully. Big 15-inch Torque Thrust wheels tie it to the '60s but are fitted with modern 225/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFGoodrich performance radials. With just enough race gear to feel potent, this cool pro-touring style pony delivers lots of fun with a vintage twist, all at a very affordable price. Call today!
