West Coast Classics are proud to present a great daily driving and striking example of this 1966 Ford Mustang 'C' code 289 V8 Convertible with custom upgrades including a rebuilt fuel injected 289 V8 engine with an automatic transmission in original 'Candyapple Red' factory color paint with a very striking reupholstered original 'Red vinyl & Red Rosette' vinyl trim interior and a new 'White' power soft top and with the desirable additions of after market air conditioning and power front disc brakes.
Ford's biggest success of the sixties and the originator of the 'Pony car' concept was essentially a sporty compact car but with a now legendary long hood and short deck proportions, built on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drive-train components, the Ford Mustang was introduced in April 1964 as '65 models and within a year became the fastest selling car of all time; with these early production cars now carrying special favor! The upgraded V8 from the Falcon six cylinder engine was the 260 c.i. V8 produced on the same assembly line with other 1964 Fords, the early models were titled as 1965 models although they were actually from the 1964 production era. After September 1964 the 260 V8 was dropped in favor of the larger 289 V8 like this particular car.
The car drives very well with no known mechanical issues. The engine is extremely strong and responsive and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
In summary this is one very striking rare 1966 Ford Mustang 289 V8 Convertible with a rebuilt fuel injected V8 engine, front power disc brakes and air conditioning. A great daily driver for any American classic car lover. A beautiful example of this increasingly collectible and one of the most desirable classic Mustangs ever in turn-key ready daily driving, daily head-turning, and daily appreciating condition!
