A car that literally gave life to the much-celebrated pony class, the first-generation Mustang is a name that needs little to no introduction anywhere in the world. As a product of the legendary Lee Iaccoca and Donald N. Frey, the Mustang has become a legendary brand, with many first-gen examples being highlighted as the prized possession of many collections even to this day. This 1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code 4-Speed was a limited and much sought-after high-performance variant of the car. Admittedly, this car was restored before the current owner took delivery, and so the originality and part numbers of the entire project aren't reportedly certain. Still, it's a truly stunning example, and it's currently up for sale in Texas with 80,269 miles on the odometer
Reported to have been fully restored before falling into the hands of its current owner, this 1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code wears a brilliant Wimbledon White paint coat, an extremely popular color scheme for the first-gen 'Stangs. The car has red striping along the sides of the car, and it matches well with the red hub caps on the wheels, as well as the color-matching tire walls. It is reported that the Mustang has a clean and straight body, and the seemingly perfect chrome bodywork pays homage to this statement. The interior of this vehicle is a true statement in itself. A plush Pony Red leather interior sweeps the entire cabin, engulfing the door panels and taking the shape of two individual bucket seats upfront with a bench style for the rear. The entire cabin is color-matched, from the floor mats to the headliner, and it's all complemented well by a set of glistening chrome accents that are present throughout the inside.
Before we talk about what's under the hood, let's specify the specialty of the K-Code. The entire drivetrain on a K-Code edition was reworked to handle the extra power. This resulted in a reworked clutch, driveshaft, rear differential, and suspension. So what exactly powers this 1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code? A powerful 289ci V8 with upgraded pistons, cylinder head, carburetor, lifter heads, and connecting rods that produce a total of 271hp transferred to the rear tires via a 4-speed manual transmission and 3.5:1 axle ratio. It’s also got a fast ratio steering box.
