1966 Ford Mustang
Attention â€“ This is the real listing for my 1966 Pro Touring Mustang and the car is located at my residence in Maryland. I had sent some pictures to a friend of mine in Florida, who deals in high end vehicles, to let him know that I was thinking about selling the car and he put it on eBay a few weeks back. That said, I have decided to list it myself because who better to represent this car then me.
This Mustang was rotisserie restored, resulting in a superior performing and handling classic muscle car. It includes numerous power and comfort options, and attention to detail was used during the restoration to where it runs, drives, looks, sits, and sounds incredible. The paint, fit, finish, and attention to detail are show quality. This car is truly a blast to drive and it draws attention wherever she goes. A little over 2000 "shakedown" miles have been put on the car since completion of this fully documented build to where this car needs nothing other than a new owner.

The following is a video of this car done by my son. He has a YouTube channel called Picky Garage where he does videos of my vehicles as well as other vehicles that interest him.
The individual who built this car has over 30+ years of high-quality auto restoration and customization experience, and he personally built this car. There is extensive documentation and photos of an almost three-year build. You would not be able to build this quality of a vehicle without spending double the asking price.
Another good thing about this car is that I took all the proper paperwork to Maryland MVA indicating that it was a professionally done ground-up restoration, so the title reveals 2032 miles as the actual mileage on the vehicle.
Feel free to call me with any questions that you may have on 410-215-1803.
