1966 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK
Red, black vinyl interior, V-8, 5 speed, am/fm (not original but made for a Mustang). This is a nicely done 1966 coupe to fastback conversion.

I JUST DROVE THIS FASTBACK IN FROM 120 MILES AWAY W/O ANY TROUBLES----THE ONLY TROUBLE WAS GETTING AWAY FROM THE GAS & FOOD STOPS QUICKLY---EVERY STOP BROUGHT OUT THE CLASSIC CAR/MUSTANG FASTBACK ADMIRERS!! I CONSIDER THE PAINT AN '8 OR BETTER' (RATING IT (W/10 BEING SHOW QUALITY). THE GRILLE SPORTS THE 'GT' STYLE LIGHT BAR ASSEMBLY AND IT'S IN LIKE NEW CONDITION. THE DRIVE TRAIN CONSISTS OF A LATER MODEL 302 V-8 COUPLED TO A 5-SPEED. ---DRIVES GREAT & SOUNDS GREAT!! THE ORIGINAL LOOKING INTERIOR IS NICELY REDONE IN BLACK VINYL W/THE FOLD-DOWN BACK SEAT AND NEWER BLACK CARPET. IT HAS NICE DOOR PANELS, HEAD LINER, CONSOLE AND DASH. THE MUCH DESIRED MUSTANG OPTION THE "RALLEY-PAK GAUGES" ARE MOUNTED ON THE STEERING COLUMN---THE SIDE BY SIDE RALLEY-PAK GAUGE DUO CONSISTS OF A TACH AND A CLOCK. THE RADIO IS A REPRODUCTION FACTORY LOOK-ALIKE THAT IS ELECTRONIC AND WORKS GREAT. IT HAS THE OLD STYLE 14" TORQUE-THRUST DARK CENTER ALLOY MAG WHEELS W/8's ON THE BACK AND 6's OR 7's ON THE FRONT W/ALMOST NEW 225/60'S ALL THE WAY AROUND. THE FLOOR PANS ARE NOW IN GREAT SHAPE THANKS TO WHAT LOOKS TO BE MUSTANG REPLACEMENT PANELS IN (3) OF THE FOOT WELL (TUB) POSITIONS. THE TRUNK PAN IS GREAT SHAPE W/ONLY (2) QUARTER SIZED HOLES ON THE OUTER PANELS ON EACH SIDE OF THE GAS TANK. THE TRUNK NOW HAS THE FACTORY CORRECT MOLDED STYLE RUBBER TRUNK MAT. THE SOLID ROCKER PANELS ARE ORIGINAL AND IN GREAT CONDITION W/NO RUST----EVEN THE FACTORY 'DRAIN OUTLETS' IN THE ROCKERS ARE PRESENT AND RUST FREE. ALL GLASS IS GOOD AND THE FRONT BUMPER IS EXCELLENT AND THE REAR BUMPER IS STRAIGHT BUT HAS DULL CHROME---I RECENTLY BOUGHT A NEW REAR BUMPER AND IT WILL GO W/THE CAR AND IF I HAVE A CHANCE I'LL PUT IT ON BEFORE I SELL THE CAR. THIS IS A CAR THAT YOU CAN JUMP INTO 'NOW' AND PROUDLY CRUISE AMERICAS' HIGHWAYS !!! THE VIN ON THIS '66 FASTBACK IS--6R07T12****--- WHICH CODES OUT TO A '66 COUPE ----THIS CAR WAS REAR CLIPPED W/A '66 FASTBACK (IT WAS CUT THRU THE WINDSHIELD PILLAR POST AND THE ROCKER PANEL----NEAR THE FACTORY ORIGINAL SEAMS). AFTER GOOGLING 'FASTBACK MUSTANG 'CONVERSION' I FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS A VERY COMMON WAY TO TURN YOUR 'COUPE' INTO A 'FASTBACK'. THE INTEGRITY OF THE ORIGINAL FASTBACK INTERIOR/EXTERIOR COMPONENTS WERE NOT ALTERED. ALSO THE DOORS FROM THE COUPE WERE USED AND THE COUPE 'VIN PLATE' WAS LEFT UNALTERED/NOT REMOVED---THUS THE 'COUPE VIN' AND DITTO W/THE VIN(s) ON THE UPPER FRAME RAILS--HIDDEN AND VISIBLE.
