This 1966 Ford Mustang coupe checks all the boxes, offering a sweet-running 289, an all-new suspension, some choice options, and a glossy silver paint job that might not keep you out of trouble. It may not be show car, but this recently restored beauty (only 236 miles since the build!) is exactly the right car for someone who loves to drive their vintage hardware.
The detailing proves that even the basic Mustangs were stylish transportation you could be proud of, and any V8-powered pony car is guaranteed fun on the road. There’s a custom GT-spec gauge bezel full of MP Products gauges that keep an eye on the powerful small block under the hood, and we love the beautiful 3-spoke steering wheel and the thick armrest that folds down on the factory front bench seat, all of which really make it a pleasure to be behind the wheel. A retro-style AM/FM radio was installed and fits perfectly into the stock position, and there’s an under-dash A/C unit that’s plumped for R134a refrigerant, although it looks like the system needs to be serviced if you want cold air.
Power steering and front disc brakes improve the ride experience greatly, and the 15-inch alloy wheels look racy and carry beefy blackwall radials with plenty of tread left. This is a great-running Mustang coupe with a lot of recent work and a strong drivetrain, essentially reset to the beginning with only 236 miles on the restoration. Dialed-in, clean V8 Mustangs are getting harder and harder to find, hesitate and you might miss your chance to own a beauty like this.
