Sometimes a classic just has everything you want. This 1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback is a sleek full-black machine that's also a proper GT tribute. And with the enhanced V8 power and upgraded five-speed stick you really get to enjoy this performance pony car to the fullest.
Black is one of the coolest ways to represent this American icon. This dark glossy shine is the result of an upgrade later in life, and on the fastback body, this dark hue is the most intimating way to distinguish your Mustang from the friendlier pony cars out there. Plus, this one has all the right GT-style upgrades, including the fog lights in the grille, badges on the fender, GT gas cap, and trumpeted dual exhaust coming out the rear valance. And the red rocker triple-stripe does a terrific job of adding an extra-aggressive look. Beneath all these sporty details is a complete and clean classic. So you get a great look that also has a quality feel in the fundamentals.
The dark theme continues inside. There was a solid investment here to make sure it's a nice place to spend some time. There are some premium touches, like the wood paneling on the dash, deluxe door panels, and the fold-down rear seat. And of course, everyone takes note of the deluxe ""pony"" pattern on the seatbacks. But what makes this experience particularly nice is the feeling that comes over you when your left hand grips the sports steering wheel and your right one is on the shifter. It really lets your senses know you're in a true sports machine.
The engine bay has the tidy look of good care. You'll also notice quality pieces like the bright blue block, upgraded pulleys, and the polished shock tower brace. We also love Shelby-inspired touches like the long air topper, matching valve covers, and the Monte Carlo bar going across. But the best part is that you have Ford's hardy 289 cubic-inch V8, and it has been upgraded with a Weber four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Streetmaster 289 intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. This is a sports car that likes to give the direct sensation of control. You really feel it in places like the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. Plus, the front disc brakes and the wide BF Goodrich T/As on styled steel wheels offer good control while keeping your senses in touch with the road.
The way this fastback fires up, runs, and feels is a total package of quality performance. So to get it on a GT tribute with such a cool and dark presentation makes this an all-around irresistible classic. Call now!
