Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1966 Ford Mustang GT fastback is an exceptionally restored coupe with everything you could want, including four-on-the-floor and an A/C interior. So take extra time digging into the details of this true award-winner that's stunning, accurate, and a true blast to drive.
The trim tag tells us this is a code 63B luxury fastback. Mustang fans know truly how rare it is with less than 8,000 produced in 1966, and that represented less than 1.3% of total Mustang production for that year. Oh yeah, it's the kind of rarity that will have you reaching for our phone number before you even check out the high quality restoration that has gone into this extremely desirable pony car. It all starts with the paint. The Springtime Yellow is an attractive way to stand out against the more common red or black 2+2 Mustangs. It really draws you in with the quality of its hard shine. That makes for an already alluring coupe before you add all the GT package elements. The black triple stripe on the rocker panels sits in-between the 14-inch factory styled steel wheels to nicely contrast the light paint with sporty style. Plus, we all know there are more GT-specific elements you need to get right, and this one has the fog lights in the grille and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. The chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, and all the little trim pieces are in place, right down to the proper GT badges on the fenders and gas cap. This is all part of a comprehensive restoration that took place in 2004, and it seems this only coupe's job was to rack up awards since then. It even received the Blue Grille Medallion from the Mustang Club of America in 2010. Those who know these pony cars understand that this only goes to the thoroughbreds.
The fresh look of a big investment continues inside. It starts with the factory-correct black interior. It's a color that really gives a timeless contrast to the exterior yellow (just like rocker stripes.) Plus, everyone loves to see the premium "Pony" package interior on this luxury fastback. You can really see and feel the quality in the door panels, carpeting, dash, headliner, and all the other fundamentals. This gets all the best in classic Mustang features like the working AM radio, center console, and fold-down rear seat. The correct-style air conditioning is even blowing nice and cold. And because a GT is a driver's car, you'll love spotting the Rally-Pac with clock and tach.
This is an A-code car, and so it's great to see a performance 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. The consignor also states this is the original motor to the car. This engine bay received just as much meticulous attention during the restoration as the rest of the coupe. And all the details are present, including the decals, Ford-stamped hoses, correct washer bag, and even the air conditioner has the correct tag. As you look at the undercarriage, they even remembered to get the red oxide right! But beyond just the attention-grabbing components that impress at car shows, this motor has real performance substance. As an A-code car, and so it should be no surprise that there is a four-barrel carburetor on this V8. It exhales with a commanding presence through the H-pipe dual exhaust. The four-speed manual transmission is also believed to be original, and it gives you full control over the V8. Plus, the front disc brakes and fresh suspension components give you confidence on the road.
The sale comes complete with a reproduction buildsheet, owner's manual, a restoration photo book, and a list of the awards already won. This is an exceptional restoration, and it deserves it because this also looks to be one of the rarest and most desirable Mustangs around. Don't let this fleeting opportunity to buy the best slip away. Call today!!!
