The Ford Mustang is an evergreen piece of Americana that will never be forgotten. It’s going strong since 1964, and is now on the sixth generation. This is a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe from South Dakota that’s been owned by the seller since 1978. It’s got a mere 50 miles on the clock since receiving a new crate motor, and has undergone a host of refreshments and replacements as well, making it ideal if you’re looking for a classic first-generation Mustang that will give you a reliable Sixties motoring experience. Mustang coupes are relatively rarer than their fastback and convertible brethren, so you’ve got yourself a bit of a find here.
The first-generation Mustang created a template that the latest generation pays homage to. This 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe has a lovely blue exterior and a set of period-correct rims with white-striped tires. Under the skin, the front and rear frame rails and support rails have been replaced with primer, paint and powder coat applied. The front park lights are new as well. The interior is in a blue and white theme and offers seating for four adults on blue and white leather seats. The door cards also feature soft white padding. This car features the original wood trim on the dash with the period radio and Mustang emblem on the passenger side, as well as the wood-rimmed, chrome-spoked dished steering wheel with the iconic Mustang logo on the center cap. All chrome bits look to be in good nick as well.
Under the hood, this 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe has been treated to a 302ci crate motor that has seen only fifty miles since installation. It drives the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission for an optimal cruising experience. The carburetor, transmission and power steering units have been rebuilt, along with new power steering hoses, transmission lines and torque convertor. A new shifter, linkage, bushing kit, fuel lines and oil sending unit have been installed as well, and a new battery ensures reliable performance of all the electrics.
