1966 Ford Mustang
1966 MUSTANG RECENTLY RESTORED
Purchased in 2012 and spent a year restoring it. Finished mechanical restoration in late 2013 and have only driven it about five hundred miles since.
ALL NEW STEERING -- Added Borgeson power steering and Ididit tilt steering wheel. The only retained parts are the Pittman arm and the spindles.
ALL NEW BRAKES -- Added power front disk brakes. Replaced all brake lines. Rear drums were retained but new pads installed.
ALL NEW SUSPENSION – New coil springs, leaf springs, sway bar, bushings, upper and lower control arms. Added Shelby drop for better cornering. Literally, it’s all new.
ALL NEW COOLING – New high-flow water pump, 3-row radiator, hoses, fan and shroud.
ALL NEW FUEL SYSTEM – New fuel tank, filler neck and cap, fuel lines, mechanical fuel pump. Installed rebuilt 4-barrel carburetor (Autolite 4100).
ALL NEW DUAL EXHAUST – Including Tri-Y headers
HEATER – Rebuilt heater and installed new fan and ducts.
ENGINE (289 cubic inch) – Removed engine to clean and paint it. Changed to 4 barrel carburetor, added new intake manifold and camshaft. New wiring harness. New timing chain. New engine mounts. New air cleaner. New electronic ignition (Pertronix distributor).
TRANSMISSION (C4 automatic) – Overhauled by AAMCO during restoration. New transmission mount and oil cooler lines.
ENGINE BAY – Cleaned and repainted. All wiring in engine bay is new. Installed new voltage regulator, battery, battery tray and horns.
The paint is okay. It looks nice for driving around, but it needs to be sanded and painted to be a true show car. The interior is in good shape but it needs a new headliner and the dashboard should be repainted and the dash pad replaced. The front seat is a bench seat (rare for a Mustang but nice when riding with a friend). Also, I really don't know the mileage. The odometer says 12800.
