It's time to put a pony car in your garage. This 1966 Ford Mustang coupe features include stellar paint and a strong-running 289 V8. So is an affordable way to own a turnkey ready version of America's favorite weekend getaway car.
If you're going to have a Mustang, it's hard to beat Candyapple Red. And if you want to be bold, it's best to have the factory-correct color professional resprayed with a luster-filled modern clearcoat like this one. While it never carried a lot of ornamentation, many regard the simplified 1966 models as the cleanest of the early Mustangs. Chrome is complete and good, including the bumpers that have a mirror-like shine. The new-for-1966 grille that featured horizontal bars in place of 1965's honeycomb pattern, and a “corral” that now floated, instead of being suspended on four bars. And the perfect finishing touch is a set of the iconic styled steel wheels with Mustang emblem in the center cap.
A pristine black interior is always the perfect complement to a bright red exterior. Everything from the bucket seats, to the door panels, to the carpeting carries the kind of luster that tells you this has received proper care over the years. And while we love the black, this is far from a total sea of darkness as there's plenty of bright trim around all the best features. This includes the factory three-spoke sports steering wheel, T-bar gearshift, and the GT-inspired full five-dial gauge cluster.
Ford's reliable and perky 289 cubic-inch V8 moves the lightweight Mustang enthusiastically through any traffic. The engine bay is tidy with some nice added brightwork on the air cleaner and valve covers. Plus, we all love the look of the Monte Carlo bar running across the middle. The V8 fires up nicely, so you'll love taking this one out on the road. And you'll be rewarded for doing so with the added performance from the Holley four-barrel carburetor and updated dual exhaust system. This one also truly has a go-anywhere feeling with nice features such as the three-speed automatic transmission and the grip of modern Dunlop tires.
