LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback

From the beginning when Ford first launched the Mustang they anticipated sales at the modest figure of 100,000 units. Unbeknownst to them they had started a revolution in what would be one of the most iconic vehicles in shape and name. Originally offered in two body styles and three choices of transmission, either a soft top convertible with the option of a power assist or the hardtop. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a three or four speed manual or a three-speed automatic.

This 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback was built at the San Jose, California assembly plant on April 18th ,1966 and remained on the west coast with the original owners family until 1992. It is finished in the very attractive Vintage Burgundy exterior with Black deluxe pony interior. Under the hood, is the “A” code 289ci V8 producing 225hp still with the very rare original California pollution control system. Behind the engine is the Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission sending power to a 3:00 rear axle. This fastback is highly optioned including air conditioning, tinted glass, exterior visibility group, power steering, front disc brakes, console, am/fm cassette radio, remote mirror, 2-speed wipers and dual exhaust. During the restoration, GT fog lamps and grill bars were added to improve the overall appearance. Finishing the appearance package is a set of classic Styled Steel wheels with red-line bias ply tires.

Under previous ownership, this beautiful Fastback was treated to a no-expense spared restoration. The entire body was stripped to bare metal revealing an impressively untouched west coast body which was then primed and block sanded to ensure a show quality paint finish. The engine compartment is exquisitely detailed, down to the proper markings, decals, clamps, hoses, and vintage-style spark plug wires, while the chassis is concours-restored, with fully detailed suspension components and red oxide floor pans. The end result was the culmination of many years of searching and acquiring proper components and hardware for this special fastback. It was a trailered enclosed to shows and events all across the country by its enthusiastic owner and went on to win countless trophies and awards. This Mustang is likely better than new, and its fit, finish, and overall quality are outstanding.

Included in the sale are photos of the restoration, restoration receipts, service manual, California title, California license plates and much more. Fastback Mustang’s with these options and restored to this level are hard to find! Any enthusiast would be proud to house this pony in their stable.

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
