1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code Additional Info:

Fully documented ownership history from brand new numbers matching K-Code 1966 Mustang GT! Finished in Tahoe Turquoise Metallic with a Light Aqua/White Crinkle Vinyl Pony interior, it is a stunning car. a rare and powerful 289c.i. 4v HiPo V8 and backed by a proper 4-speed manual transmission. Only 5,469 K-codes were produced in 1966, which includes the convertible and fastback form. The P10-designated GT Package from the factory makes this iconic Pony car only adds to... its rarity. The factory original door data tag and VIN plate are affixed to the driver's door where it was put at the factory 50 years ago. It has never been removed, swapped to another door, or replaced with a reproduction tag. The VIN stamps are clearly visible on the driver inner fender well. It was repainted once in June of 1984. The paint found under the hood, door & truck jams remain factory original. Interior is beautiful and remains all original with exception to new front seat covers that were replaced in the early 1980's. Pulling clean and strong through all 4 gears, and putting the power down through the correct 3.50:1 limited-slip geared 9'' rear end, this is a blast from the past. The Decoded Vehicle Identification Plate on the driver's door is again unaltered and is the original plate that matches the casting number on the engine block and the VIN stamped under the hood.

It began as a special order for a Ford mechanic located at Thompson-Fauskee Ford based in Santa Barbara, CA. Ordered with a host of options, and a few dealer-installed features after it was delivered on April 21, 1966, just 10 days after it was built, this is a highly equipped example. Factory options included GT Equipment, Hi-Po 271hp engine, limited-slip differential, red band nylon tires, interior décor group, deluxe seats front & rear, AM radio, tinted windshield, hazard switch, 2-speed wipers, styled steel wheels, and Rally Pac tachometer & clock. Dealer installed accessories included a Ford Studio Sonic Sound System with rear speaker & reverb box mounted in the trunk, vinyl roof, rubber floor mats, and a hood safety lock to prevent anyone from opening the hood once the car was locked. Each K-Code Mustang had a special badge on their front fenders that read "HIGH PERFORMANCE 289". No doubt about it, the K-Code Mustang was all about performance and was not available with air conditioning or power steering and you couldn't buy one with an automatic transmission until the 1966 model year. The engines included upgraded pistons, cylinder heads, Autolite 4100 carburetor, solid lifters & cam, special crank, connecting rods, exhaust manifolds, and more. In addition, one look under the hood and you'd notice the chrome air cleaner and valve covers. Hiding behind the engine lays a high-performance clutch; heavy duty driveshaft, 9" rear differential, and suspension. With an advertised 271hp at its disposal, it was easy to tell this car from other 289 powered Mustangs of the day. The GT Package also had some serious hardware, namely a 16:1 quick ratio steering box, front disc brakes, heavy-duty suspension, springs, shocks, and sway bar, GT ornamentation, fog lights, and trumpeted dual exhaust coming through the rear valance panel. This particular "K-car" is truly spectacular and among the best driver examples, you will find. All proper original K-code items are present and accounted for, another rarity. The optional 8,000 RPM Rally Pac gauges are original and still operational. This original owner parted ways with this muscle car and it sold to the second owner in April of 1969. This new Santa Clara, CA owner meticulously accounted for every mile, service, gas fill up, and gas mileage in a small notebook for the next 17 years! It was then sold in 1986 to a Fresno, CA airline pilot who cared for it 14 years until selling it in June of 2000. The 4-previous owners took pride in maintaining this American classic until it was eventually purchased by a collector in August 2014. The only replacement items on the car include the radiator (original included), fuel pump (original included), wheel trim rings, brakes, valve covers (originals included), and a few other wearable items. The original carburetor was rebuilt by Pony Carbs. The double redline tires are brand new having only a few hundred miles on them. This particular car is registered in the K-code registry and comes complete with all original tire changing equipment in the trunk, the original window sticker from Thompson-Fauskee Ford, original California black plates & dealer frame, written ownership documentation, service records, and registration documentation.
