1966 Ford Mustang GT 302 3-speed manual
This stunning Mustang GT departed the Ford factory at Metuchen, New Jersey on 11th May 1966. Initially ordered with the 289 4V V8 engine,three-speed manual transmission and the optional 3.00:1 limited-slip differential. Other options were Power brakes, Power steering, 'Magic-Air' heater, two-speed wipers, Deluxe seat belts, Tinted glass, Radio, Deluxe Pony interior,Pistol-grip door handles,and most importantly the Rally-Pac. The extras alone added another $1,000 to the initial $2,500 purchase price, a considerable amount of money at the time. Classic chrome Mustang wheels and a recent set of Cooper Cobra tyres complete the picture.
We have just (June 2017) fitted a new High-Output 302 4-V crate-engine and new clutch kit. This new and upgraded high performance engine develops 300 hp and gives this classic GT car a more than respectable improvement in power over the original 289.This has involved the expenditure of a little over £5000. The original 289 engine will come with it should the next owner wish to have it re-built.
Finished in Ivy Green Metallic with a contrasting Olive Green and Ivory Pony interior and a White Vinyl roof.This fantastic car was purchased from a Mustang specialist in America by the last owner and imported in 2015. He tells us it was the apparent originality of the car that appealed to him and the only work that has been carried out to the car in his ownership was a professional respray.The lovely interior, excellent chassis and tidy engine bay needing no attention at all, presumably having been restored in the recent past.The addition of the new chrome Mustang wheels and Cooper Cobra tyres possibly having been fitted at the same time.Comes with Mustang over mats,trunk liner and wheel cover,spare wheel and tools.
The mileage displays 15670 miles and comes with a copy of its Ford Showroom window data sheet,State of Connecticut Registration and Mustang Owners Club letter and Marti Report confirming its credentials.
This sparkling American classic has taken pride of place at various shows up and down the country last year.We have just given it a new MOT that runs to June 2018 and this iconic Mustang GT is now ready for the 2017 show season.
