1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code
Someone really knew what they were doing when ordering this 1965 Ford Mustang GT convertible. It's hard to find a more desirable first-gen pony car than a factory built K-code HiPo 289 with four-on-the-floor. And now with a high-quality restoration, here's a rare opportunity at your dream turn-key classic Mustang.
The name Vintage Burgundy for this car's factory-correct code X paint is a bit of cool foreshadowing. When this one was built, they must have known how much of an extraordinary classic it would become. You have also picked up on all the correct GT exterior enhancements, including the fog light grille, GT side badging, rocker stripe, GT gas cap, and trumpeted dual exhaust mounted in the rear valance. And someone spent the time and money to get this one right. The paint has a high-gloss shine, and the light rolls evenly across it as it passes over the super-straight sheetmetal. And on a car this good, only the best brightwork will do. You see it everywhere from the mirror-like bumpers to the styled steel wheels. But even if you strip away the rare packaging and solid investments, you'd fall in love with this pony car anyway. After all, this is the exact car you picture when you close your eyes and dream about vintage motoring.
If you think this looks sophisticated with the maroon paint against the parchment roof, then you're going to love it even more when you take the power folding top down. Not only do you get more of the great parchment color, but also this is accented by burgundy. And while this is the factory-correct colors right from Ford, it's such a well-coordinated and fresh presentation that people will ask you if it's custom work. Plus, it includes the ultra-desirable "pony" package on the seatbacks. This one is so authentic that even the AM radio still works! We also bet you just love the way the wood paneling on the center console matches the steering wheel, glove box, and gauge panel. And speaking of the gauges, you get the five-round readout cluster with large speedometer that makes the 1966 cars so desirable. And yes, this one has the sought-after Rally-Pac. This tach/clock combo is not only a great performance option, but it's also quite handy on a stick shift car like this.
As much as you'll love the interior and exterior, it's the rare K-code HiPo 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood that will impress even the ficklest Mustang enthusiast. It's the motor that took home the trophies around the globe, and so to have a date-correct block with correct heads in this K-code car means this one will always be in-demand. The V8 shows all signs of great care, and even has a hint of flash. But more importantly, it's a very stock and tidy appearance that impresses true enthusiasts. With the turn of the key, the dual exhaust gives a high power V8 symphony, and the four-speed manual transmission makes you the conductor. That's the key to this car. It might be a valued classic, but it's also an irresistible cruiser. That's why you also have great driving features like more modern tires and front disc brakes.
Complete with a reproduction owner's manual packet, K-code '66 Mustangs were quite rare. And so to find one so complete in such a desirable droptop form, you soon realize rare opportunities like this are fleeting. So this is a case of call us today, or you might regret it tomorrow!
