1966 Ford Mustang 289 V-8 CoupeSelling a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe Restomod Track Project.
I've had this car for about ten years, and hoped to finish it some day but things happen.
I bought it from a friend who got it from his aunt, a little old lady from Southern California who didn't put many miles on it.
She just drove it locally, never got on the freeway, and only put a few thousand miles a year on it. The body and chassis probably have less than 120,000 miles on them total since it had less than 100,000 miles when he got it.
My friend drove it around for a couple of years, blew the 289 engine, put a 302 in it, drove it for a few more months, and then got another car to drive so it just sat.
It is a very solid rust free Southern California Mustang with good floors, trunk, firewall, and fenderwells but does have a couple of rust spots on the doors. No major rust repair needed anywhere.
The Mustang's body was totally stripped, All the badges on the side and the hood were removed and the holes were all welded shut.
The sides are totally smooth except for the door handles. No fender badges, no trident on the rear quarter panel.
The sides are perfectly straight with no ripples or waves or dents.
The Mustang was completely repainted Wimbleton White with the doors, fenders, trunk, hood, and windows off the car.
But it has sat for the last six years and the carport leaked, so it has rust bubbles appearing on the lower front of both doors where water got in which needs to be repaired and repainted.
And a ding and large paint chip on the driver's door thanks to my neighbor.
The rest of the body is in great condition. Smooth and straight. The paint should buff out nicely.
It really was a beautiful paint job as you can see in the early photos.
It's a great car that runs good and handles like a dream. The entire Mustang suspension is basically new.
Great balance and really tracks through a curve with precision.
The ride is not harsh even with the Koni Shocks, and the car feels like it's on rails.
The Traction Master suspension system works incredibly well.
The four wheel disk brakes work great since they were originally designed for Ford Granadas and Lincoln Versailles, which are much heavier cars that weigh about 1000 pounds more.
And you can get brake parts at your local Ford dealer.
It was originally an automatic, but converted to a mid 1990s Ford Mustang World Class T-5 five speed manual with a used Factory Ford pedal assembly.
The handbrake has been moved to the center transmission hump using an old Ford Contour handbrake.
The car basically needs a couple of thousand dollars and a hundred man hours to make it complete.
All the pieces marked New are six to nine years old and have less than 100 miles on them since I never got the Mustang on the road.
Everything was done right the first time. I do have most of the receipts and invoices for the parts installed.
The 1966 Mustang Coupe starts, runs, and drives. The Engine, Transmission, Rear End, Suspension, Brakes, and Wiring Harness are all installed and working great.
