1966 Ford Mustang 289 "C" Code Coupe
Walk Around Video
This car is a 54,000 original mile example that was cared for by the previous owner since 1977. We have the original owners manual, vin decoder sheet, and original registrations dating to 1977 for the car. The title states the mileage as original as well. The car was lovingly maintained and driven for many years up until the owner could no longer care for the car. This car is the best of both worlds in that it maintains absolute originality and low mileage, while having some tasteful upgrades which make it a super driving car!
The correct "P" Code Antique Bronze is of a high gloss and looks very nice for being painted 10 years ago. GTS Classic Motors recently had the paint buffed to a show finish and it really turned out great. There are a few minor imperfections, however, the paint is very glossy, has great depth, and would make anyone proud to show and drive this car to local car shows and cruise-ins alike! The chrome appears all original and is very nice with minimal "patina" at best. All of the stainless and brightwork also presents well. The neat thing about Antique Bronze is that you seldom see another one on the road and the color combination with the Parchment Pony Interior really pops!
The fit, finish, opening and closing of doors, panel alignment, etc is very nice and original on this car. The quarter panels, doors, fenders, inner aprons, etc appear all original and should be for a 54,000 original mile car! Underneath the car there is no evidence of any metal work and the car has super solid torque boxes and frame rails. The underneath has been nicely detailed with black paint and presents great!
The original 289 two barrel runs great in the car! The engine has been completely serviced and tuned up by GTS Classic Motors and settles into a nice idle with a classic muscle car exhaust note! The original C4 engages positively into gear and the car goes down the road nicely. The engine bay has been nicely detailed and the car really runs great! A complete dual exhaust system with GT exiting trumpet style tips exiting through the rear valence was recently added and looks and sounds just great!
The interior of the car is all original and very nice with only 54,000 miles. The correct Parchment with Palomino Pony interior accents really works well with the Antique Bronze paint. Displaying just normal patina, the seat covers and seats are still supportive and have no rips or tears. The headliner is original and nice on the car as well as the factory dash. The car still has its original radio which works and has never been modified! The only real flaw we can find is, as mentioned in our walk around video, the original brown carpet on the passengers side has some wear marks where your feet would sit, however, we could not bring ourselves to replace it as it is original. If the new owner so desired, GTS Classic Motors LLC could install a new reproduction carpet for a fee. Overall the interior on this car still functions great and looks awesome!

With a GT look and some GT upgrades such as the fog lights and dual exhaust exiting through the valence, this car runs and drives great and is ready for a new owner who wants an original time capsule back to 1966!
This 1966 Ford Mustang 289 "C" Code Coupe is an absolute time capsule with only 54,000 documented original miles! We acquired this car from the gentleman who owned it since 1977! We have gone through the car to bring it up to top operating condition and this car is ready to show and go! The car is a "C" code factory 289 two barrel car with an automatic transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, and deluxe pony interior. Finished in its factory correct Antique Bronze over the original Parchment Pony interior, this coupe is highly original and runs and drives great!
