1966 Ford Mustang
1966 Ford Mustang Restomod. This car is built to be a little different! The Acapulco Blue paint was done earlier this year and it looks really sharp. I intentionally avoided any stripes or emblems for a clean look. The car features a 302 and automatic transmission, with borgeson power steering and power disc brakes. The exterior features a fiberglass nose and hood, decklid, endcaps, and side scoops-- all purchased from Mustangs Unlimited. The headlights have amber halos for the turn signals. Billet mirrors continue the sleek look, and the billet grilles were perfect for the clean look up front. At the back there are billet tail light bezels, sequential LED turn lights, and the billet gas cap. Wheels are 15” Hurst Dazzlers with new tires. The rear trumpets are open trumpets from Summit going through the valence. The all new exhaust starts with black tri-y headers and 2.25” pipes to summit turbo mufflers. They have a nice rumble but aren’t the loudest.
The interior features six gauge electronic instruments, with aluminum trim in the dash bezel and glove box door, reminiscent of the 67 deluxe interior styling. The upholstery and rear panels are TMI Sport R versions with red stitching ( You should check out how much $$$$ these parts cost new!) Front bucket seats foam are new and very comfortable. The headliner is one-piece from Mustangs to Fear giving some extra head space. The Cobra style steering wheel is new and gives nod to the classic look. The carpet, dashpad, seat belts, and door panels are all new. I didn’t put the driver side arm rest on for some extra space but it is included.
In the engine compartment you’ll notice the hipo style air cleaner on top of an edelbrock 4 barrel carb and edelbrock intake. The engine has other goodies like retro finned valve covers, billet aluminum pulleys, pertronix ignitor ignition/coil, and Tri-y headers. New aluminum radiator for cooling and new export brace/monte carlo bar for handling. The borgeson power steering conversion is a great upgrade making the car much easier to drive. I also installed a mustang steve bearing on the column end to ensure smooth operation.
