1966 Ford Mustang -- Additional Info:

Wow, this is a lot of Mustang for not a lot of money. You'd be hard-pressed to find a duplicate to this A-code pony with a strong-running 289 4V engine and a 4-speed for the asking price. Bright silver paint, a beautiful interior, and a lot of charisma make this a fantastic way to get into the Mustang hobby without a major investment. Repainted in what appears to be code 4 Silver Frost, this handsome coupe shows very well. Originally... hailing from down south where it's spent most of its life, the familiar Mustang sheetmetal is crisp and sharp thanks to expert restoration work. They built a lot of Mustangs, most of them coupes just like this, but that doesn't mean they're not handsome, timeless cars, and except for perhaps a Corvette or a Porsche 911, there aren't many cars that are more recognizable around the world. This one has been nicely finished in a way that keeps it subtle but elegant, which means no stripes, scoops, or spoilers! It's not perfect, but very respectable and ready for the your local car show. With bright rocker panel moldings, and shiny chrome on the bumpers, and a custom grille, it's nicely detailed in the way you'd want your Mustang to look. It's not a fake GT, not dressed up like some Shelby wanna-be, just a clean coupe that totally nails the factory look. The result is straight and appropriate, making this a car you'll be proud to show at any level because it fits together so well. A handsome red bucket seat interior is a very desirable complement to the silver paint, and it's authentically restored with great detailing and attention to the little things. Look how neatly the seat covers fit, with just the right amount of padding underneath to create a supportive seat that doesn't look over-stuffed. Crisply marked gauges are all fully functional, another detail that you just don't see in cars priced like this, and an upgraded AM/FM/iPod stereo lives in the dash, which is a nice upgrade if you're going to drive the car regularly. There's a 4-speed shifter sticking out of the transmission tunnel, so you know this neat coupe means business. Add in a color-matched steering wheel, correct door panels, and a taut headliner, and it's hard to see how anyone could come out right-side-up financially with a sticker price like this. Interiors this nice are EXPENSIVE. And speaking of expensive, check out the stereo system living in the trunk! And this isn't just some 6-cylinder beater, either. For that price, you're getting a legitimate A-code 289 cubic inch V8, nicely detailed and running great. Someone took the time to do it right, as there's Ford Blue paint on the engine itself, a high-performance air cleaner assembly, MSD ignition and a set of finned valve covers that look great. There's a Holley double-pumper carburetor on top of an aluminum intake manifold for a few extra horsepower, and it spins to life easily with a nice bark from the dual exhaust system. The 4-speed clicks through the gears with authority, and highway-friendly gears out back make it an excellent highway cruiser. Underneath it's very clean and solid, with correct red oxide primer on the floors, just the way the factory did it. Styled steel wheels look awesome, especially wrapped in those sporting Goodyear white-letter radials. This car gets almost everything right: look, sound, and feel. If you want one of the last truly affordable early Mustangs that don't need a full a restoration, this Mustang is a shocking bargain. Call today!
