I hate to do this, but Iím putting my 66 Coupe up for sale. It is a documented 2-owner car with 50k +/- original miles. I purchased the car in February after knowing about it since 1991. I absolutely love this Mustang but I cannot resist the urge to modify my cars. This one is just too original to mess with.
Itís a C-code Dearborn car built November 19, 1965. Antique bronze metallic with Parchment/Palomino standard interior and black vinyl top. All numbers matching 289/2v/3sp with factory 2:80 posi (very rare). Also factory AC! Car was sold new in Chicago, taken to Florida by the original owner, and then purchased and driven to NJ by the second owner in 1991. It had 46,081 miles at that time.
As far as I can tell, the intake manifold has never been off. Engine does have a new water pump, cap and wires. True dual exhaust was also installed at some point. Very nice original condition Ė everything works but the AC, which worked when it was parked, likely needs a charge. It runs and drives very well. I'm biased of course, but I think it looks fantastic.
After I purchased the Mustang, I spent $500 on miscellaneous parts, to update a few things here and there. I also rebuilt the entire heater box and installed a new heater core and all hoses, seals, clamps, etc. Ė works good as new. Also just installed are 5 brand new radial dual redlines on 5 restored styled steel wheels which cost me $2150. The whitewalls and factory wheels/caps are included, as is the original spare wheel with dual-redline tire.
Iím asking $17,500, but I might consider a mustang trade plus cash. Iíll put up better pictures including the engine, trunk and interior, and the actual mileage ASAP.
