The 347 stroker V8, custom interior, and exceptionally sporty style all come together on this 1966 Ford Mustang. It creates a classic where the icon you love is also a unique street machine.
This Mustang is for the bold. It has a bright red paint that just seems to command added attention. Of course, what also gets this one noticed is its custom style. It's quite unique to see a first-generation Mustang upgraded with a comprehensive body kit that includes the front valance, rear valance, and full-length rockers. There are also billet tail light bezels, wide dual exhaust tips, and upgraded Ridler 17-inch wheels that have a high-polish style to match the chrome bumpers. But a lot of these upgrades were done with a touch of vintage style, too. The dual-scoop fiberglass hood is a design borrowed from the '67 GT350, the fog lights are classic Mustang GT, and the integrated rear spoiler reminds us of the California Special.
The interior is a great mix of style, comfort, and performance. The front bucket seats show all of this. They have the classic low-back style, but now it's an upgraded design with better bolster and cool red contrast stitching. A matching rear seat, newer carpeting, a smooth dash, newer door panels, and a fully finished trunk give this the overall look of quality. There are modern comfort upgrades, like an armrest center console, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with a USB input for your iPhone. The wood-rimmed steering wheel and white-faced gauges give you an updated feeling to the classic style. And the auxiliary readouts under the dash get you ready for something nice under the hood.
Even the engine bay has a nice sense of style. The dark inner walls go well with the air grabber and valve covers. And the red detail on those go with the red engine block. It all has a fresh look because we're told this motor was rebuilt only about 2,500 miles ago. It's a 302 block that's said to now be a 347 cubic-inch stroker V8. It also includes a four-barrel carburetor, an upgraded intake, and aluminum heads. There are nice supporting components, too, like an Optima red top battery, steel braided lines w/AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator. The three-speed automatic transmission has a 3400 RPM stall to make sure this upgraded motor stays in the optimal powerband. And while this is a classic that likes you to feel the road, it also makes sure you have enhanced grip thanks to modern ZR-rated sport tires.
There's a lot of style and substance that went into making a Mustang this unique. So if you want a pony car that sticks out from the herd, call today!
