MCA Concours Gold Awarded Candy Apple Red ’66 GT Coupe! TRUE FACTORY BUILT MUSTANG GT!!! Fitted generously with AC, PS, Automatic and Pony interior! Date coded everything and numbers matching! This car needs nothing but a new owner!
By early March of 1966, Ford had already sold 1,000,000 Mustangs. The seemingly endless array of possibilities meant that anyone from young teenage boys to grandmas could spec their Mustang out in various flavors from mild to wild. There were still three body styles, four engines and a plethora of interior and exterior colors and trim packages. All said and done, another 607,000 Mustangs found homes in 1966!
We are very excited to offer this 1966 Ford Mustang GT Coupe! The car is finished as it was from the factory in Candy Apple Red with White vinyl roof and Red Pony interior. This car is fitted with its original A-Code Challenger Special 289ci V8 making 225 horsepower! Furthermore, the car is fitted with its original C4 Dual-Range Automatic transmission. Options on the car include air conditioning, power steering, AM Radio, bucket seats with full length console, Rally-Pac clock/tachometer, GT equipment group (HD suspension, 16:1 steering, front disc brakes, 4-inch fog lamps, five-dial instrument cluster, GT badging, hood accent molding and triple stripe on lower body), deluxe seatbelts front & rear (front retractors), visibility group (two-speed wipers, day/nite rear-view mirror, remote side-view mirror) and styled steel wheels wrapped in 6.95-14 Goodyear Power Cushion white line tires.
The car started life in the sunny Los Angeles DSO and ultimately made its way into the collection of a Mustang Club of America judge in Arkansas in 1997. The car’s potential was realized and it was decided that the car was to be restored. Seeing as the car still wears all of its date-code correct sheet metal, it must have been a great foundation to start with! The car was brought back to a very high level and upon finishing, was entered into a judged event in 2003, scoring 680 of 701 possible points earning the car Concours Gold Awards. The car was sold to another Arkansan before making its way to the greater St. Louis metropolitan area in July of 2007. The new owner, MCA judging sheets in hand, vowed to correct the issues that kept the car from scoring every point possible. A frayed wiring harness, a misaligned taillight and speaker grilles are receipts we have to verify that this owner meant business! While the car has not been judged since 2003, we have every reason to believe that the car would score even higher today than it would have 15 years ago!
The car survives today with an older restoration that would fool many eyes into thinking it was fresh. The paint and chrome are still at show level. All mechanicals, lights, radio, gauges, buttons, switches and even the clock work. Every component of the car that would have been date stamped when new is and it is all correct. The fender stamp is clearly visible and body panel gaps are excellent. This is one of those cars that could make an enthusiast smile just opening and closing the doors or hood. More so than a lot of other Mustangs we have had our hands on, simply stepping in this car will make you feel like you are in 1966 and taking delivery of your brand new, shiny red Mustang. We have driven the car at modern interstate speed for a prolonged distance with the A/C on and feel that this car is as sound as they come mechanically.
This car presents a magnificent opportunity to own not only a turn-key car that needs not a single thing but also a very stylish way to get into a V8 MCA gold car. The car comes with many recent receipts as well as the original Warranty Identification Card! We would invite any and all questions and would be more than happy to show you this beautiful Mustang in person! Thanks for looking!
