1966 Ford Mustang Restoration

1966 Ford Mustang

Technik : The car starts up easy, runs, drives nice. It has a manual choke just in case it is really cold outside, and you need some assistance.
The engine was removed from the car, acid dipped, and pressure washed. Afterward the the block barrels were honed 40 millimeter over with a new set of pistons, and cylinders. The head was machined, balanced, and blue printed. To give her even more performance we added an Edelbrock intake manifold with a 650 Edelbrock Performer 4 barrel carburetor. It revs up easy, and smooth.
It is safe to say she has got very good power. The wiring was completely redone by the original wiring diagram. Everything works. The radiator was flushed, and pressure tested. We installed a modern AC unit with a new AC condensor in front of the radiator. The power steering, and original drum brakes work perfect. The car is sitting on new 15×6 Rally wheels with new BF Goodridge tires. All running belts were replaced, all fluids were replaced, new shocks all the way around.
Exterior : Paint job is beautiful..! The car never had accidents, therefore all the body panels line up good. The paint job is recent, and has a nice luster, shine to it. I would rate it a 9/10 just because there are a few imperfections here, there. The undercarriage of the car is honest, and completely rust free. There is no evidence of any previous repairs or panels replacements. The front grill has been replaced with a GT styled grill with amber fog lights which have been wired, and routed just like the original would be. Also, we had installed a rear diffuser with the exhaust outlets, another GT style que.
Interior : The headliner, carpet, door panels, dash, package tray, floor mats, front and rear seats, chrome bezels are new. We had also replaced the front windshield including new rubbers. The front bench seat is an option, and it is quite a rare option.
History : The car came from 1 owner. It was actually sitting in his drive way since 1989 until we had discovered it, and towed it away on 4 flat tires. It comes with the original pink slip, license plates, jack, spare, and WINDOW STICKER..!
