To understand what all the fuss behind the Ford Mustang is about, we need travel back in time to the first generation. Breathtaking design cues and an affordable performance ethos means that fifty years later, the Mustang model is still galloping. The first generation was available in multiple body trims but the most desirable has to be the iconic fastback. Hence, this 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback 351ci that we have here is a fine example of a classic first-generation Mustang. It’s located in Utah with just 44,000 miles on the clock. It’s also got a few upgrades up its sleeve to ensure its new owner will always drive it with pride and a broad smile.
The Sixties was truly a wonderous time in terms of car design. It was truly a time where creativity was at the core of each car and any idea put forward at design meetings was actually considered. The Fastback Mustang is one of those examples. Don’t believe us? This 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback might change your mind. The car is finished off in a vintage burgundy metallic paintwork that is reported to be the original color of the car and had been repainted during its life. Whilst the exterior of the car sure turns head its interior also sure deserves some praise as well. The interior Is in great condition with all components intact. The dashboard is a wonderful mixture of nickel and lashings of wood. Sitting in the driver’s seat of this Mustang, it’s not easy to miss the original steering wheel and gear knob, however what really stands out is this car coming with the rare option of the Rally Pack which includes a clock and a tachometer. Four adults can be accommodated, and the rear seats can be folded for additional luggage space if desired.
A true American muscle car isn’t complete without the familiar rumble of a V8. This 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback 351ci lives up to this statement but with a slight twist to it. Powering this iconic fastback mustang is a 351ci Windsor crate motor which has been bought from ford back in 2015. To further enhance the crate motor’s power is rocker rollers in place. The small block V8 engine Is renowned for punching way above its belt by being an efficient, straightforward engine with tuning potential. Whilst the original engine has been swapped for power gains the car still retain its original 4 speed manual transmission which sends its power to the rear wheels. The original transmission has also been rebuilt. An aluminum radiator with electric fan ensures proper cooling, and braking is via drums on all corners.
