1966 Ford MustangShelby Tribute! Just in time for Summer. It hurts to sell this one.
You are viewing my choice 1966 first generation rust free “R” code Mustang ( R second digit in VIN shows California built, n Shelby GT350 clothing. This is a true Los Angeles California car. I have to let it go because I do not have a garage to keep it in.
History: I purchased this Rust free, ccident free Mustang about 12 years ago from the original owner who’s family lived in East Los Angeles. This was their pride and joy, ut had to sell it. I looked at many other cars but could not find such an original car with original paint, ust and dent free as this one. Inside the trunk as well as the original floor pans show no signs of rust or rust repair. The original owner was smart at the time and had the dealer lightly undercoat the floor pans to preserve them. You can see the original red oxide primer were some of the undercoat peeled off. This is an important feature when looking for an original to appreciate in value. I had to buy it! I saved it for my son so he could have a classic mustang as a first car.
I wanted to build and restore this car with him and that’s just we did. This car was perfect for him being a straight six 200CI engine and Automatic Transmission. With the straight six engine, knew he wouldn’t get in trouble racing around and get the best mileage a mustang could get. Approximately 20 MPG! I wanted to improve on the safety of this car, o we added V8 5 lug wheels with Power Disc Brakes, D Coil Springs, 8 eight inch Rear End and One Inch Sway Bar. Brand new American Racing Torque Thrust wheels and Brand new fat BFG TA radial tires just like back in the day. Shelby Side scoops and GT350 Side Stripes also added.
He could easily keep the car tuned with periodic oil and spark plug changes. We have the best of both worlds. I had the engine rebuilt and it has about 5k miles on it. We had the Transmission rebuilt with about 5k miles on it. Shifts perfect and the engine runs very strong. The Rear End also was rebuilt with 3:25 gears and a balanced drive shaft all with about 5k miles. Basically the whole drive train like new! Sounds like V8.
We added LED tail lights and LED bulbs in the dash as Mustangs are notorious for dull dash lights, ery bright Tail lights and head lamps. We installed a Classic Auto Sound AM FM with Ipod hookup in the STOCK radio hole in the dash, ot cut out for some aftermarket radio. New 6x9 Speakers in rear package tray behind rear seat and Kick Panel Speakers up front. We added new deluxe wood grain Gauge Bezel and Glove Box Door. All new inside which includes New Carpet, ew Upholstery with seat buns, ew Door Panels, oor Handles, eadliner, ash Pad, helby Cobra Floor Mats and a Shelby style wood steering Wheel.
This car is a blast to drive and gets a lot of attention everywhere it goes. You get allot of rubber necking with this car. Everything was stripped from the car including door handles, ront and back bumpers, mblems etc before being painted with a high quality 1966 Acapulco Blue DuPont brand paint, hen correct width Wimbledon White Shelby Le Mans stripes were added. Many hours of block sanding went into this paint job to give it a very straight razor finish. Just look at the side shots No Chips, ents or Scratches. New windshield was installed and all other windows had a tint installed, his is a fresh restoration of a classic beauty right out of my collection of RUST-FREE California cars!
Looking for one to call your own and appreciate in value as would a solid car like this? Or maybe a problem free car that you can drive across the states? You have found it.
This is a true California car with an “R” as the 2nd digit in the vin and a DSO 72 for San Jose. The floor pans were carefully inspected for any rust before the carpet was laid. (see pics) You could eat off those original floor pans! Not a hint of rust anywhere!! This is NOT your typical back East car with replaced floor pans that had rust. All the panels on this car are original. I have never seen such a perfect alignment with a Fiberglass one piece Shelby hood as this one. That’s because both fenders are original to this car. (see pics)
You may ask, hy am I selling such a high caliber car? My son received a scholarship to play football in Maryland for the Naval Academy and didn’t want to drive this car in the snow.
There is nothing you can do but to just drive it and have some serious fun! I have listed a build sheet below that shows the parts that are new.

Most early mustangs run hot. NOT THIS ONE! The modifications to the spark and breathing attribute to the engine running very cool.
