Ford Mustang Fastback Restomod 351 V8 1966

General description : Description
This 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback Restomod has an awesomely mean look from every angle. It also has the performance-built Dart/Roush fuel-injected V8, five-speed stick, and sports suspension to back up the intimidating appearance. And as a true restomod, you get to enjoy a fully upgraded package from a custom/comfy interior. So yes, you're looking at a true dream car up for grabs.
The first-gen Mustang fastbacks always a favorite. They were the first to be turned into race cars because of their slippery styling. And this one really loves to highlight that sleekness with the Candy Apple Red. It has a modern metallic finish that really highlights the lines every time the sunshine touches the super-straight sheetmetal. In fact, this one is so clean and sleek, they even painted the bumpers to match. But the reason why this is extra appealing is because it also borrows from some of the best Mustang generations around. The big front spoiler and black out rear look like they were borrowed from a Boss. The side scoops are a true Shelby-style touch. And the hood is custom-crafted piece that channels the lines into the big scoop - just like the modern Mustang GTs.
Inside is a tasteful red and white two-tone. This has the right vintage pieces we love to see, like the premium "Pony" upholstery package and the fold-down rear seat. But there's also a ton of upgrades. Some are there for added comfort, like the cup holder center console and AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth. There's even R134a air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold again.) Other pieces are pure performance, like the wood-rimmed GT350 steering wheel on the tilt column. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
You are absolutely going to love lifting the hood at car shows. This has the look of classic speed with a vintage-style battery topper and the appearance of velocity stacks. But you really want to take a closer look to discover the modern juggernaut. It's a Dart 351 cubic-inch V8 block with Roush 402IR packaging. That includes a forged rotating assembly, Roush aluminum heads, and Roush cast valve covers. And those "velocity stacks" are from Weber, but they are actually individual throttle body fuel injection units! This even has the right supporting components, like an Accel DFI 6A ignition, March serpentine belt system, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. Hooker Super Competition headers feed a very straight H-pipe dual exhaust on its way to the Magnaflow mufflers. It makes for a terrific tune. But don't just listen to it; follow the path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll spot more great upgrades, like the tubular A-arm front suspension, thick way bar, and subframe connectors. The five-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control over the full power package. And control is a central theme with rack & pinion power steering, grippy sport tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
This is an absolutely awesome package, and we even have a receipt from this summer showing over $9k invested in this big power motor. So you're looking at the ultimate first-gen fastback restomod. And since it's one-of-a-kind you may never get another chance at this again. Call today!!!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
