1966 Ford Mustang

Restomod, 289, Fuel Injection, 5 Spd, Posi rear, TMI Seats

This is one sweet little Mustang. I bought the car about a year ago from a guy that I know in Texas. It is a 2 owner car that was in California and Texas. I have owned a lot of Mustangs and this one has the most pristine sheet metal that I have seen. All original floors, torque boxes and trunk in excellent condition. The car was originally Medium Sage Metallic with Parchment and Ivy Gold interior. The original owner had it painted black and changed the interior to black at some point. I have repainted the car Gem Green Metallic. In about 10 months, the car has been transformed into a very cool and fast street car.

Paint

I chose a modern Ford F150 color for the car. It is from a 2015 F150 and called Gem Green Metallic. It is a very cool color that looks black at night, but then green in sunlight. It has quite a bit of pearl in the paint. I added a fiberglass hood with a '67 style Shelby scoop. The Argent color that is on the hood is also a 2015 Ford Color.

Engine

The engine is a 289 bored .030 over with hypereutectic pistons. The cam is the Edelbrock Performer Plus that matches the Performer Intake. On top is a new Holley Sniper Fuel Injection kit. I purchased the fuel injection tank as well. Stainless steel JBA headers feed the full stainless JBA exhaust. The engine runs excellent and has great power.

Transmission

Not happy with the 3-speed that was in it, I installed a rebuilt World Class T5. All of the components to install the T5 are new including: clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, clutch cable kit, bell housing, and stainless driveshaft.

Suspension/Brakes/Rear End

This Mustang has 2 inch drop coils in the front and 1 inch drop springs in the rear. The shocks are new KYB pieces. All of the front suspension has been rebuilt. A set of Cal Tracs has been installed to help with traction.

The brakes are front disc and rear drum.

I stuck with the 8 inch rear end, but upgraded the center chunk to a 3.23 posi unit. Combined with the T5 gearing, I really think this is a perfect set up for this car.

Interior

The entire car has a Dynamat underlay. Fresh black carpet with jute backing was installed. I had the seats recovered with TMI Sport covers. The door panels are matching TMI panels. I also added the TMI trunk finish kit. There is all new handles for the doors and windows. The gauge cluster is a new analog unit with green LED lights. I also added a Scott Drake Rally Pack for the tach and clock. The dash pad, visors and headliner are in perfect condition. The steering wheel is a new leather wrapped unit.

Wheels/Tires

The wheels are new Scott Drake alloys made for the Mustang. The tires are BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp2 radials: 225/45-17 front and 255/45-17 rear.

Overall, this is a great car. It is extremely quiet inside when driving, but has a nice throaty exhaust note outside. The seats are very comfortable. The car needs nothing and can be driven and enjoyed immediately.
