Well, I think the OG Mustang is a car model that many people love. You might actually consider using As a daily driver, despite its age.Wide range of parts and updates for him It’s available and the basic car is pretty comfortable and works well out of the box.

My second car at the time was a similar, albeit more attractive, ’66 coupe with a 289 CID V8 and automatic transmission. I was driving the thing from gas station to gas station because I could only rake in a few gallons of change at a time and the Mustang’s gas mileage was pretty bad. My driving habits probably didn’t help either.

It’s in much better shape with a modest refresh in paint that mirrors Shelby’s legendary GT 350 Fastback.To tell the truth, Orchelle probably should have He based his massaged Mustang on the Coupe because the latter’s large piece of glass isn’t out in the back, making it nearly 100 pounds lighter than the Fastback.

Everything inside seems to be original and gives a sense of the age. It’s a low-spec car with no center console, but it has everything you need. The only major issue here is the radio that seems to be missing, replaced by something hanging out of the opening by a cable. The radio space is his three holes in the sheet metal dashboard and hopefully they haven’t been exploited. It looks like my fingers were crossed because the holes in the knobs may have been covered with electrical tape. Modern stereos fit into factory openings without cutting.

As mentioned earlier, it appears that this was originally a low-spec model. It’s possible he didn’t even come with a V8 from the factory. Given the lack of front fender badges denoting a V8, it is possible.In 1966 the Mustang was powered by one of two V8 engines, a 2BBL 289 CID unit suitable for 200 (gross) horsepower, or a 2BBL 289 CID unit for 225 horsepower. It may have been ordered with the same 4BBL high power (HO) version.

It has a later 4BBL cab and dual exhaust, so let’s calculate that power and put it around those numbers. A 3-speed C4 automatic backs it up. It also appears to have his one of the more common aluminum radiators and a fan for cooling. Somewhat surprisingly, photos of the engine bay show the battery disconnected and loose connections. What’s wrong?
