1966 Mustang Fastback GT
Real deal not a clone!!
For the 1966 production year, the Ford Motor Company built 35,698 fastback Mustangs in one of three assembly plants Ford had dedicated to Mustang production. Standard equipment included front bucket seats, padded instrument panel, color keyed wall to wall nylon carpet, padded dual sun visors, floor mounted shift lever, heater, cigarette lighter, and padded front arm rests, functional rear fresh air louvers and a fold down rear seat. In April of 1965, Ford introduced a special option package, the GT. This package included a heavy duty front sway bar, heavy duty shock absorbers, increased rate front and rear springs, a quick steering box, front wheel disk brakes, a special fender mounted red GT badge, rocker panel stripes framing the name Mustang, special fog lamps, chrome grille bars, a five dial instrument cluster, blacked out grille, dual exhausts through the rear lower valence with chrome trumpet tips and a standard power train that was the 225 horsepower 289 cubic inch engine with a four barrel carburetor. This Mustang was built in the Detroit at the Ford Motor Company assembly plant on the 10th of March, 1966. It is painted Raven Black and has the standard Black vinyl interior, the GT package, four speed manual transmission, a full length console, Rally Pac - clock and tachometer, deluxe seat belts, American racing Torque thrust R wheels, positraction rear end and an AM radio. All items on the car are original equipment, recognized replacements or rebuilt with new parts, brakes, front and rear suspension. All hardware items are refinished or replaced. The chrome is like new bumpers and door handles look like new. The intake is the correct 5AB date code as is the original Ford Carburetor. The carb was and has the Ford Part number C6ZFA and a 6BD Date code. The distributor is also original with a 5KA date code and part number C5ZF-1227-A. Everything under the hood is correct and in beautiful shape all of the correct parts are there. The only change was to replace the points system with the Pertronix ignition system the engine runs great and the positraction rear end really hooks up. All the hoses under the hood are covered with Ford markings. I just can say enough about under the hood the engine looks great all the correct parts. All hardware and brake lines were replaced and are as new. All the suspension has been redone. The springs were replaced along with all rubber parts. The exhaust is correct 1966 GT with Factory Ford tips. The interior is in fantastic shape all the way around it looks like it came off the show room floor. The trunk area is clean and includes the original spare tire and jack. The green wax and tire sticker are still on the spare tire. The under side speaks for itself. The original floor pans are in excellent shape as is the entire under body and rear quarters. The rubber water drains are even still there in the bottom of the quarters. This was a rust free restoration. The car was so clean it was taken apart all the components were cleaned up the car was repainted the original color BLACK it looks great! The paint has been color sand and buffed to a mirror finish. The paint job is spectacular. There are a lot of red and white cars out there or a mish mash of clones and junk. Do not be fooled by the imposters this is an original Fastback 289 4V GT numbers matching car! I tried to explain everything as best I could. Please email me with any questions about this awesome automobile. I have a tight schedule but will be able to meet people for a drive and closer inspection upon arrangement. Please contact for price.

The car was built in Dearborn, but was sold in Memphis Tennessee. The person I bought the car from was the third owner. He actually bought the car from a widower. Her husband restored the car a year or so before he died. She told him the car only had 19,000 miles on it and after looking the car over I would have to agree. He bought the car in Bowling Green Kentucky and shipped it up here to Michigan. Since I have had the car it has sat in the garage and been used sparingly as a weekend cruiser. I do not have any way of proving the mileage, but the cars underside and condition looks incredible. The wheels and tires are new, she had the old ones, but they were a little pitted so he kept these. I do not have anyway to get the olds ones back. The car is like stepping back in time. SOLD
