1966 Ford Mustang
This original GT 4 speed fastback has been transformed to the next level by a flawless 3 year restoration with stunning results. It was invited to the special display at the 2009 All Ford Nationals in Carlisle, Pa and was a feature article in the January 2012 issue of Mustang Monthly magazine. The goal of this restoration was to keep the original appearance and styling of the classic Mustang, but to enhance it with modern upgrades. The quality and craftsmanship speaks for itself. There are no shortcuts or excuses. Extensive documentation, receipts and hundreds of photos demonstrate the quality of this restoration. It has been owned by the present owner for over 12 years and has been carefully driven for 1800 miles, so it is well sorted.
