1966 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Early Mustangs like this 1966 Ford Mustang GT convertible are rock-solid places to park some money. Their values have been on the rise for years and while that's going on, you have one of the most beloved cars of all time in your garage. This convertible features all the important stuff, ranging from an A-code 289, 4-speed manual transmission, and an awesome color combination, making it a terrific summer cruiser that will make you smile every time you drive it. If you're going to have a Mustang convertible, it may as well be a high-visibility GT, right? This one is a real-deal GT and has all the proper hardware to back it up. Painted in 2013, the spectacular black finish is holding up superbly. Sure, it shows a few extremely minor signs of use because nobody can resist the siren song of a V8 pony car in the garage, but this is the kind of car that makes men and women, young and old look appreciatively as it drives by. You'll park it in parking lots and walk away backwards to admire it as you go. Fit and finish are excellent with doors that don't sag and decent gaps all around that closely approximate how the factory did it. It shines up nicely so you'll enjoy waxing it almost as much as driving it, and with red GT stripes running along the rockers, everyone will know this isn't a garden-variety pony. It has also been recently treated to a Sapphire ceramic coating, so it should look this good for years to come. Other GT features include the twin fog lamps in the grille area, shiny chrome exhaust trumpets poking through the rear valence, and, of course, the GT gas cap, all of which give it a slightly more aggressive look than your standard Mustang. The red Pony interior was obviously restored not too long ago and you'll find it's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, like seeing an old friend. The handsome color combination is a nice complement to the shiny black paint, an elegant two-tone look that makes the Mustang feel more expensive than it is. It's fitted with desirable options like a center console and Rally-Pac clock/tachometer on the steering column, plus the interior dÃƒÂ©cor group that includes a wood-rimmed steering wheel and dash panels. The only noteworthy upgrade is an AM/FM stereo in the dash that expands your entertainment options beyond the original AM setup. The original gauges show very good faces and clear lenses, and they all seem to be working the way they should. Overhead, there's a recent white power convertible top that uses a red boot to give the car a trim look, top up or top down. In addition, the trunk wears correct plaid mats and a spare tire with its own cover. This is a real A-code car and carries what we believe is the original 289 cubic inch V8. It's still wearing proper Ford Blue paint, a chrome air cleaner with decal, and a set of finned valve covers, all of which are period pieces that still look great. This A-code V8 offers a 4-barrel carburetor and 225 horsepower, making this a sweet-running pony that can still slice through traffic with the best of them. It also includes a big aluminum radiator, a Monte Carlo bar, as well as front disc brakes that were part of the GT package. The "Toploader" 4-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly and powers an 8-inch rear with 3.00 gears inside, making this a nice car to drive around town or on the highway. There's also a recent gas tank and a great-sounding dual exhaust system with proper trumpets out back. Classic styled steel wheels with 195/75/14 redline radials complete the classic Mustang look. A wonderful vintage ragtop that is still as in-demand today as it was 50 years ago and if you're paying attention, this is the Mustang to own. Call now!
