If it is about classic Ford Mustang models, and you really value "classic" models, then you can't ignore the early models of the first Mustang generation, which was introduced in 1964. Although the late years of construction of the first generation of the Pony cars look much sportier, there are various finishing options for the early models to make them appear as dynamic and expressive as the later models. This early model from 1966 has already undergone a few changes and is now on the auction platform Bring a trailer released for auction. Unfortunately, we do not know anything about the minimum bid, but the Mustang was updated with the new one Coyote V8 engine already moved 27.000 miles (43.450 km). From this it can be concluded that the Restomod project has been completed for some time, and the vehicle may even be considered Daily Driver is moved.
First generation Ford Mustang.
The vehicle was completely stripped of rust, and his new one The bonnet was made of fiberglass manufactured. This found its way into the Mustang before the white pearl effect paint was applied with the blue rally stripes. Other highlights include the mighty one Shelby-style front spoilerwhich means that the front bumper is split in two as well as the gigantic one Powerdome on the hood. In addition, the Taillights tinted dark, and a Double pipe exhaust found the way to the rear of the pony car.
There were also gray ones 18-inch alloy wheels in a five-spoke design built onto the Toyo tires. In our opinion, this wheel-tire combination fits the extremely sporty 1966 Ford Mustang like a glove, which also has the Front section of the Mustang II as well as a adjustable coilover suspension disposes. In addition, a Four-link rear axle von Heidts installed, which should provide significantly more driving dynamics than the standard rear rigid axle. In this elevator, the vehicle is likely to play a major role at every US car meeting when it comes to winning over the audience.
Classic interior with modern features.
Meanwhile, the interior was with sports seatsthat have integrated headrests. The seats were with quilted brown leather covered, and the decorative stitching was done in a diamond style. Also got the Mustang black floor mats and one black headliner, and one red roll cagethat should make the vehicle suitable for the race track. But modern features also found their way into the old Ford, such as a Automatic climate control from Vintage Air, a RetroSound Bluetooth stereo systemNew Instruments, LED ambient lighting or Armrest with cup holdersto make the journey as pleasant as possible.
First Generation Coyote V8!
A 5 liter V8 naturally aspirated gasoline engine the Coyote series, which thanks to extensive modifications, for example 470 PS and 544 Newtonmeter Generates maximum torque, drives the Restomod project. The power transmission takes place via a modern Tremec T56 manual transmission with six courses on the Rear wheels. The driving performance should be gigantic, since the beast should only weigh about as much as a current Ford Fiesta, but comes up with significantly more power and torque. The vehicle is therefore ideally suited for the quarter mile, and could really heat up many a modern super sports car there.
Our conclusion on this 1966 Mustang Restomod:
With its various modifications, the Mustang causes a sensation even when it is stationary, but due to the relatively high mileage of the engine, we are skeptical about an increase in the value of the automobile. Instead, the vehicle is ideally suited as a daily driver, whose true potential cannot be seen. As always, you can find a picture gallery of the vehicle at the end of the article.
