Ford Mustang Additional Information
This is an original 1966 Mustang GT A code car with black pony trim. Unusually fitted with the period optional vinyl roof. Used sparingly in dry weather, the car was fully restored several years ago and still presents beautifully. Kept on the button and ready for driving, GT spec cars in this condition are increasingly harder to find. A sensible price means this classic Ford Mustang is particularly good value for money. Viewing highly recommended, the car can be inspected by appointment near Goodwood.
The bodywork is finished in deep blue. The restoration has mellowed to a really nice patina, creating a car that you would be equally happy to take to car shows or to use regularly. There are several differences as seen on this car for the GT over a standard '66. "GT" emblems are mounted on each of the front fenders and the running horse emblems were deleted. Individual "M U S T A N G" pin letters are located in a stripe that runs along the lower rocker panel. 1966 Mustang GTs came with a "GT" logo gas cap. Black vinyl roof was an option on GTs and its rare to find one with one today.
The interior has the black embossed 'pony' trim. The deluxe trim option. GTs had the 5 gauge consol with different gauges. This car has featured in Classic American magazine in the past.
All GTs had 4 barrel carbs and the engine on this GT is purposefully torquey. It starts first time and idles smoothly. The engine bay is clean and tidy, and shows that this car has been well cared for. The '66 GT had the option of a 4 speed, which this car has. All GTs were equipped with the special handling package which consisted of stiffer springs, heavy duty shocks, 13/16" front sway bar and a quick ratio steering box. This classic car has the optional power steering, making for easy maneuverability. Stopping power for the Mustang GTs came from discs at the front and drums rear, a great improvement over standard cars all wheel drums. The GTs discs also meant a larger master and slave cylinder.
