1966 Ford Mustang -- Additional Info:

Not all great bargain 1966 Ford Mustangs are created equal. With its 289 V8 crate motor and four-on-the-floor, this coupe has some serious appeal that goes well beyond the great deep burgundy paint, and shiny chrome. The color of this coupe makes it the perfect standout. A first-generation Mustang dressed in red is iconic, but when you render it in a deeper shade of classy burgundy, it gets extra attention when hanging out with the other classics. The... investment in a professional paint application gives the crisp lines a more sophisticated appearance, that's backed up by the full trim package, including shining chrome bumpers on each end. And those 14-inch Cragar SS wheels are the exact way you want to promote distinction. A deep black interior is a great complementing color to the rich burgundy exterior. Everything from the bucket seats, to the door panels, to the carpeting carries the kind of quality that tells you this has always been under good care. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966, and it offers a sportier appearance while holding a complete set of readouts. The bright trim here provides a nice complement to the chrome trim around the heat/defrost switches and the three-spoke steering wheel. And you'll love gripping the wood around the wheel, and on the gearshift. It's all part of a great classic driving package that begins when you twist the key and hear the rumble of the dual exhaust. That powerful soundtrack is courtesy of the recently freshened 289 cubic-inch crate V8 under the hood. It looks great with the shiny Edelbrock air cleaner and aluminum valve covers. But beyond just the attention-grabbing components that impress at car shows, this motor has real performance substance that includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum heads, Comp Cams camshaft, and headers. And because this is a crate V8, the newer motor fires up easily, and it's ready for just about any adventure that you are. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission gives this classic coupe better versatility on the road, to choose between comfortable cruising and performance driving. Add in new front bushings, rear traction bars, 9" rear end, and four-wheel disc Wilwood power brakes, and this is a great looking Mustang with some added moves on the road. You get distinctive looks, a powerful V8, and the control of a four-speed... so at a price like this, you know this Mustang will be leaving us quickly. Call now!!
