This is a 1966 Ford Mustang GT- a very desirable car in very solid shape. We’re going to build it up a bit and make it a daily driver for the owner. The story behind this Fastback four-barrel 289 HiPo 4-speed Mustang is that the owner’s uncle bought this car brand new, kept it completely stock, and drove it until his death in 1997.
The uncle’s daughter then took it and drove it until 2001 when it finally quit running. She parked it, then the current owner recently purchased it from his sister.
The current owner was 6 years old when his uncle bought this 1966 Ford Mustang GT and always wanted it. It needs the motor rebuilt, we’re going to freshen up the suspension and brakes.
We’ve got all the suspension rebuilt, front and back. The rear end, transmission, and motor have all been rebuilt and we’re putting it back together. Tomorrow we go to pick up the transmission, and then we can finish the drive line. Pretty soon, this 1966 Ford Mustang will drive like a brand new car.
We’ve got most of the engine put together, and are waiting for the headers to show up. Then we’ll finish the wiring and exhaust. We’re putting in an aftermarket master cylinder in it, bending up some new brake lines, and putting a proportioning valve in. We still have a heater box to do along with a little more work, then this project will be finished with this 1966 Ford Mustang.
