Think of a pure out-and-out American pony car, designed to bring out the youth in everyone, powering you and your girl west down Route 66, and you could well have a '66 Mustang coupé in your mind. The best-selling Mustang variant of all time, just 249 short of half a million rolled off Ford's production lines in that model year.
Now could be the time to ignite your youth again as the new owner of this racy red example; entered by a specialist American mechanic who has liberally invested in excess of £3,000 and untold hours of labour and love in bringing the car up to its current excellent standard since importing it from the US in 2010. Solid, straight and rust-free, this Mustang comes with the ever-popular 289 cubic inch (4.7-litre) V8 and trusty C4 automatic gearbox. New engine parts include the oil pump, timing chain and gears, rockers, lifters plus an Edelbrock Performer street and strip intake manifold topped with a 650cfm four-barrel Holley carburettor and chrome air cleaner headed up by a brand new radiator. The interior has been treated to brand new seat foam and covers with matching red door trims, kick panels, trim mouldings and parcel shelf. Also fitted is an original-pattern steering wheel, rear-view mirror and chrome air conditioning outlets. Floor mats carry the embossed 'Pony' logo and the 'trunk' mat is also new. Even the windshield washer bag is a new original-style item. Exterior replacements include fresh front and rear bumpers with overriders, the door handles, driver's door mirror and wiper arms as well as chrome rear lamp bezels. Complete with an MoT test certificate valid until June, 2012, this represents a good looking, well prepared example of the American dream …
