Ford Mustang 289 cubic inch V8 1966

Allmän beskrivning : Great-looking restoration in original colors. Strong-running A-code 289 cubic inch V8, automatic transmission, disc brakes, GT equipment. Extremely clean underneath with no patches or cutting. A fast, fun Mustang ready to play!

We sell a lot of Mustangs and it’s easy to understand why. They’re the ideal hobby car: fun, attractive, easy to maintain, and practical to live with day-to-day. Plus Mustangs are iconic—there’s just nobody who doesn’t love a vintage Mustang and they are treated like celebrities everywhere you go. It’s a great combination. This awesome Springtime Yellow Mustang coupe gets everything right. The restoration is maybe 10 years old (we don’t know who did it or when) and it’s in just the right condition for driving and enjoying. Springtime Yellow with the black vinyl roof is how this car was originally equipped, and with the black GT stripes along the rockers, it looks fantastic. Paint and bodywork are extremely nice, with doors that close with a solid sound and no evidence that it was ever rusty or wrecked—those are original quarter panels and front fenders. There’s a great gloss to the paint and very few signs of use, testament to the care it has received over the years. We also like the bright chrome bumpers and other trim, all of which is in great shape. It’s difficult to confirm the genuineness of early GTs like this, but it certainly has all the right equipment, including the front fog lights, rocker stripes, and trumpet exhaust tips coming through the rear valence. It looks friendly yet competent, and that’s how it runs.

The standard black interior is a great place to spend some time. Not a lot of options, but there’s fresh upholstery, new carpets, a new steering wheel, and fully operational gauges. The seats have fresh foam inside, so they’re supportive and comfortable and the Mustang was the first car where seat belts were standard equipment. The gauges are probably original, as is the center console, but everything works except the aftermarket radio, which we have not investigated. The dash pad isn’t cracked, the headliner is in excellent shape, and fresh Mustang-logo rubber floor mats help keep things tidy. The coupe offers a good-sized trunk with a correct plaid mat, spare tire cover, and jack bag, so it’s outfitted properly.

Mustang GTs came standard with the A-code 289 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, which teamed up to make 225 horsepower. This one runs beautifully, starting easily, idling well, and pulling the lightweight coupe around with genuine authority. It’s strong! There’s an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor in place of the original Autolite unit plus a Pertronix electronic ignition system, but those are the only notable deviations from original spec. A Monte Carlo bar was added between the shock towers to reinforce the front structure and thanks to a big radiator up front, it stays cool even in traffic. A few chrome dress up items look great under the hood, along with Ford Blue engine enamel and correct tower hose clamps, so someone was sweating the details when this one went together. Underneath there’s a rumbling dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers that sound great, along with very clean original floors, undamaged torque boxes, and factory spot welds visible on the rockers. The front suspension has been recently rebuilt so it tracks well and there are correct front disc brakes, adding more evidence to the fact that this is a real GT. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission spins an 8-inch rear end with 3.00 gears inside, so it’s a relaxed cruiser with plenty of punch when you need it. There’s also a recent gas tank, newer shocks, and 195/70/14 white-letter radials on beautiful styled steel wheels.

We drive a lot of Mustangs and this one measures up. In fact, we just spent a week in Hershey, PA at the giant show and swap meet and this was the car we used to commute around town. It always started right up, it cruises easily at modern highway speeds, and it’s comfortable to drive. What else can you ask for from a hobby car? If you’re looking for a great vintage Mustang to enjoy, you owe it to yourself to give this one a closer look. Call today!

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.

Idag klassiska Fords är mycket populär bland entusiaster och ett stort urval av klassiska Fords finns till försäljning på www.ClassicDigest.com
