1966 Ford Mustang Gta in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
While some of you might remember when early Mustangs were cheap entry-level classics, your kids will never know that cars like this uber-cool 1966 Ford Mustang GTA coupe were anything but cherished heirlooms. All the physical traits point to this being a real-deal GT car, including the prerequisite A-code VIN and 289 V8, making it the ideal for both Mustang purists and fair-weather fans alike. With a slick black paint job, a powerful V8 drivetrain, and a beautiful deluxe Pony interior optioned with air conditioning, this is one of the nicest Mustang coupes weve ever come across. br / br / Code A Raven Black was indeed this cars original color, so when it was time to restore this GTA the builders made the right choice and paid homage to the past. A modern urethane finish results in miles-deep luster and an incredibly reflective shine, and although the paint job isnt necessarily show-quality, its pretty darn close. Only very minor imperfections can be seen, which are typical of a black car thats been driven a little bit and washed on the weekends, but youd be hard-pressed to find a whole lot to complain about. The hood is fiberglass so understandably some slight orange peel can be seen at the right angle, but it too is very minor and its worth the price of admission to get that supercool air scoop on top. And if youve ever painted a black car before you know the bodywork has to be darn-near exquisite or every little ripple and imperfection will show, and thankfully the builders of this GT really nailed the livery. Its a laser-straight car with precise gaps and even panel alignment, with body lines so smooth and exact you could set your watch to them. A white vinyl top is the perfect complement to the black livery, lining up symmetrically with the white GT rocker panel stripes between the wheels. Other correct GT specs include the lack of lower body molding and quarter trim, factory GT badges on the fenders, fog lamps in the front grille, a GT racing gas cap out back, and the trumpeted exhaust that exits through the rear valance. Of course, when the paint looks that good, the trim needs to be up to the same levels, so the bumpers wear bright plating, the stainless was polished, and all the remaining brightwork was restored or replaced to make it all look equally sharp. br / br / But as nice as the exterior is, the interior will impress you even further. Sure, the optional Pony interior always looks great, but somehow this two-tone black and white combination is especially appealing. The seat covers have that soft shine that only comes from correct materials, and the embossed running ponies on the seatbacks are crisp and vivid, the sign of the high-dollar stuff, not the cheap covers. A center console is a great addition to any Mustang, as is the quick-shifting automatic transmission thats always ready to rock. Plush black carpets are protected by correct Mustang floor mats, theres a taut headliner up top, and the Deluxe door panels finish off the elegant cabin perfectly. Refreshed GT-spec gauges are original and in great shape, framed by a woodgrained instrument panel, matching glove box door, and original 3-spoke steering wheel - all indicative of the upscale Deluxe Interior. The factory fog light toggle switch to the left of the wheel is yet another GT-only option, as is the special DISC-BRAKE pedal below, although a few modern creature comforts were added to the cabin as well: an under-dash Vintage A/C system, an aftermarket tachometer strapped to the steering column, and a retro-style Bluetooth head unit that powers a premium surround-sound stereo system with upgraded speakers and two 10-inch JL Audio subwoofers in the trunk. The Deluxe backseat looks completely untouched, and the trunk is neatly finished with correct plaid mats and a full-size spare tire. br / br / The engine is a correct A-code 289 cubic inch V8, believed to be original (Ford didnt stamp VINs on their engines, so theres no such thing as numbers matching) fully restored less than 500 miles ago and highly detailed for show. Bored .060 over and augmented with Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock high-rise intake, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and a full MSD ignition, the snarky small block sounds awesome and moves the coupe with authority. Ford Racing valve covers and a matching open-element air cleaner dominate the engine bay, and the satin black inner fenders, firewall, and other polished components are in awesome condition. This car also carries optional front disc brakes, which were standard on the GT, making it the kind of car that youll appreciate most after a long day and the drive home is something to savor. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts cleanly and the 8-inch rear end is full of gears for easy cruising, while the GT-spec sway bar up front and fresh shocks and bushing throughout give this Mustang fantastic road manners. The undercarriage is incredibly clean and has been painted in satin black to make it show-ready, and the recent X-pipe dual exhaust system uses Magnaflow mufflers that sound great up and down the throttle. Original GT wheels are available with the sale for interested purists, but we particularly like the Cragar S/S chrome wheels wrapped in 195/70/14 Continental blackwall radials that adorn the car / br / Beautifully finished, this aggressive Mustang GT covers all the bases: fast, comfortable, stylish, and extremely entertaining. Offered with several extra parts, a binder full of restoration receipts and photographs, and even a matching diecast model, this 1965 Mustang GT is a very special car that likely wont be with us long.
