ORIGINAL REGISTRATIONS DATING BACK TO 1968!
ORIGINAL COLOR COMBINATION!
BEAUTIFUL RESTORATION WITH ONLY TEST MILES!
Presenting a beautiful 1966 Ford Mustang GT Coupe. My first classic car was a 1965 Mustang Coupe hence my email address. The car was a red with white interior and had a 289 with an automatic. Ever since then I’ve been searching for another coupe but I wanted a GT. That was almost 15 years and over 150 classic cars ago! These cars are becoming very rare and the prices have been sky rocketing. These cars can be cloned and I wanted to make sure it was an original GT. The car you're about to witness I purchased locally from a friend who collects classic cars and is very knowledgeable. He researched every nut and bolt to be certain it was a real GT.
This car is absolutely gorgeous and one of the most eye popping first generation Mustangs I’ve ever seen. As the VIN # indicates it was built in the Dearborn, MI plant and had a 289 4V V8. As the trim tag indicates it was born Nightmist blue metallic with light blue crinkle and blue rosette interior. It also had a 4-speed manual and 3.00:1 rear axle. The breakdown of both of the VIN # and trim tag are listed below along with the engine tag, transmission tag, steering tag and differential tag. Listed below is also a list that describes what makes GT a GT. This car went through a very extensive restoration. I was told that most of sheet metal is original but I can’t confirm this. I know quarters have had some work but that’s all I can say for sure. The rear quarters do have the drip holes. The body is very straight and the hood, doors and trunk open and close excellent. The paint job is really nice and has been buffed to a show quality shine. The exterior paint is brand new and doesn’t have any scratches or chips. It has only one small indentation in the rear drivers quarter that is the size of a pencil tip eraser. I took a close up of that in the photos below.
The color combination of this car is something very special. Everything on the exterior is new including the GT wheels and redline tires. The front windshield and rear window are new. The side glass appears original with the Carlite stamps and is in great condition. The side glass stainless trim also is original and shows some age. The exterior is complimented by the magnificent blue two tone interior. As the photos indicate the interior is all new and stunning! The shifter obviously isn’t original but is more user friendly then the original style. It also looks a lot better. All of the switches and gauges work great including the tail lights that turn on with the fog lights.
The engine compartment, trunk compartment and undercarriage is also very detailed as the photos indicate. I always tell people that most exterior photos of all classic cars and trucks can look good. However, you can’t make interior, engine compartment or undercarriage photos look better than what they really are. It is what it is! The engine runs excellent and has a newer style carburetor for easily usability. The original style carburetor is included and pictured below. Everything in the engine compartment is new! The undercarriage is painted in the correct red oxide and has factory markings, etc. Everything underneath the car has been restored or replaced. This car is very special and a very high quality restoration. It’s border line a driver and trailer queen. It’s a great car for a true first generation enthusiast. I’m very excited about this car and it will make the new owner proud. Get it before someone else does!

*** Inspection Report***
If you read my introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree that I’m a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic cars and trucks. My reputation and feedback speaks for itself. No vehicle is perfect and I want to be 100% upfront about each car. This car is 46 years old and isn’t perfect. Please call me at #508-557-0152 or email me with any questions. I’ll tell you everything I know about the car and go over the entire exterior panel by panel if need be. Thank you. Marc Schiliro “The Owner”.
